OMG-Finished for January

Month one and I am on schedule.

Venice Block is now completed.
I posted about it here.

This block I test paper pieced for Ester at 
I Patch And Quilt is now a pillow.

Judy over at Quilt Paradigm made a great pillow and I since I was in the process of making my own. I used Amanda's tutorial  from Crazy Mom Quilts to create the envelope that Judy used.

So This It!

I have joined the 2016 FAL!
I do not want to be overzealous with my commitments but feel I can accomplish this between customers quilts and traveling.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

Sea Of Blue Finished!

First Finish for 2016!

I started this the end of November, so most of it was sewn last year and then I quilted and bound this year. But still is my first finish for 2016. Sounds like such a long time to be under construction but it is only 9 weeks ago I started!

Pattern is by Julie at Jaybird Quilts and called Boomerang. Since I live near the beach I can not help but call my quilt "Sea of Blue".

Normally I am not one to follow a pattern exactly down to the colors and quilting but I fell in love with everything about this one. I loved the quilting by Angela Walters so I mimicked that too. I hope they both take that as a loving compliment.

Fabrics--Kona Fat Quarter Bundle called Grecian Water Colorstory but pulled the ones that were too green out and added some from another bundle by Kona called Pool Party Palette.

Crazy how things work! I am participating in the  Fat Mum Slim "Photo A Day" Challenge for a month on Instagram. And today's photo subject is "Something Blue" at  #FMS_blue. I know many quilters are involved and I am looking forward to seeing what you are posting over the month! 
You can see other posts at Till We Quilt.

I am not sure what is going on but can not get some of words any larger (above).
If you know why-please let me know!

A Little Less Pressure!

I am a list maker, time scheduler and goal setter.  However when overloaded with too many goals, and I can not meet them all I feel like I have failed. This year I am taking a different approach. I have a "GOTTA DO" list and a "WANNA DO" list. The Wanna Do list will not be there staring me in the face. This list is not a priority but something I want to do! If I get a Gotta Do item done I can then go for a Wanna Do project. I have doing this now for the past few months and it is working for me.  

The Wanna Do becomes a reward to 
doing a Gotta Do!

This is on my Wanna Do list.
I posted about this block in December HERE

So toward to ended of the month I plan to have this made into a pillow. 
And hope to share the end results.
