Preparing for 2017

    Like many quilters and sewers I have a LARGE stash of fabric.  To prepare for the New Year, I worked to organize my stash.  When I first started quilting, I made 2 flannel “quillows” and planned to make a flannel rag quilt.  The rag quilt never got made as I learned new techniques. Years ago when I bought this flannel I did not prewash.  Now I wash all new fabric before it is put away. I washed multiple loads of flannel pieces.  Not sure how I will use them, but they are ready.  

    Next I sandwiched 3 small quilts.  The 2 puppy quilts are made of blocks collected at guild for the Children’s Hospital.  

The Ohio Star quilt is a class sample for JoAnn Fabrics.  I have a beginner class scheduled for early January. 

I found 3 more children’s small quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  I need to get back to work quilting the bed size Yellow, Blue and Green UFO I was working on before the holidays.  I have been tempted but am trying not to start a big new project until I get another UFO finished. I need to stop starting small projects also. I have plenty to work on in 2017.

Hope you are pleased with your accomplishments for 2016.

Let’s get ready for 2017.
