December's to do and looking toward 2010

Posted by Strlady at 11:47 AM
I honestly don't know what I'll be completing this month. It's Christmas, it's the busiest time of year at work and we are getting some special guests this month that I want to enjoy; so I don't want to firmly commit myself and yet I have several Must Do items on my list.

First is wrapping things up on my Gobble Gobble quilt.



With all the blocks completed and the sashing all cut, it's just a matter of just sewing it all together. I expect this one to be completed with no problem.

I also have a binding to put on a wallhanging that Brenda made. I already cut the binding and just need to attach it. It's a sample for the shoppe and she has a generic pic on the site right now but I must say, that pic doesn't do it justice. 

I decided not to join my Schnibbles group this month. They are making Tuffets and with other things on my plate, I decided to skip this month. I'll be back for sure next month since I am loving how the Schnibbles give that immediate gratification that sometimes we miss.

Now just because I'm taking it easy this month doesn't mean I'm not thinking about things to come! Yup 2010 is around the corner and I'm already commited to several more months of Schnibbles. But also I'm thinking of making a few of Miss Rosie's bigger projects....



Like this True Blue Pattern I fell in love with in Houston!


I also bought a few other of her patterns recently and posted about it in November. I'd like to make at least 6 of these quilts in 2010. I originally thought I'd make one a month but there are sooo many beautiful quilts out there I have to give myself some wiggle room to make a few others. Like this one:




Yup. I just finished collecting all the red prints I'll be using for this quilt. I plan on picking up the background for it this weekend. I couldn't find the background used in this picture (out of print Moda?) but I found a great cream paisely print from Kim Diehl's Molly's Meadow collection. I hope they still have it at the local quilt shop.

I also have a few quilts I'm eyeing from my stash of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazines...


These could keep me busy for several YEARS!

Anyway, I'll post more details on my projects come January, I'm just jumping ahead of myself.

Oh! I also have to get ready for my quilt retreat in January! Need to decide on my project and cut my fabric so that come the time, all I need to do is sit and sew!
