At the beginning of 2017, I had two goals. I was going to finish two quilts from the Savor Each Stitch Book Bee (the emphasis chapter and the texture chapter). I finished Mod Drunk, the emphasis chapter quilt.
I hand quilted it and finished it in June. The design and the quilting show a real advancement in my design and quilting skills. I entered it in QuiltCon 2018 in the modern traditionalism category, and it was accepted.
I finished the top for the Texture quilt. As usual I got sidetracked with multiple other projects and didn’t finish it. I did manage to make the backing and baste it. I’m hand quilting it too.
I won’t finish it this year so this Quilt is on my quilts-to-finish list for 2018. And it’s the only thing on the list. Once it’s done, I will have made a quilt for each of the design element chapters from Carolyn Friedlander’s book, Savor Each Stitch. I hope to do that in 2018. Savor.
I have travel plans. My husband and I are going to Pasedena for QuiltCon in February. I’m going to the Virginia Quilters Consortium retreat in April. I hope to return to Slow Stitching Retreat in Maine in August.
I will continue my work with the Emerge Circle of do good stitches.
I will participate in the Central Virginia Modern Quilt Guild’s programs and events.
I know I’ll get involved in something unplanned and that is the best part of having plans. I can always change them.
I’m linking up with Quilting Jetgirl’s 2018 Planning Party.
