Etsy Blogger's Blog Carnival: Goals
I have been planning to post about a large quilt I have been working on and just haven't found the time. The Etsy bloggers have asked us to talk about our goals and accomplishments in this weeks carnival. So, here's my chance!
My accomplishment on this project is that I am done cutting and my short term goal is to finish sewing my light to dark squares for the quilt pattern pictured above. Below you will see some cut pieces. Love the colors and the tie like patterns!
It is called Buggy Wheels and the pattern is from the Buggy Barn. I love the Buggy Barns designers sense of color. It looks so masculine, yet warm. I actually bought this kit awhile ago, but got discouraged while cutting it. I am making it for my youngest first big boy bed. He just got his new bed last week, so I must re-engerize myself. So, I hope to finish the light to dark squares by this Saturday.
Next short term goal: sew the dark to dark squares together. I hope to have 320 of those sewn together by next Friday.
Then to begin piecing my blocks. Not sure how long to give myself on this. Add the stips, and sew the rows.
My long term goal, to finish the top of the quilt and send it to my sister Marge to long arm quilt it for us. I am going to hope my portion will be done by the end of June. Will keep you posted on my progress.
