I'm working at getting motivated to finish projects already started and start some new ones. So what better time than the present to share my quilty goals for 2016! I started it several months ago but stopped because it quickly grew out of control. I knew I'd have to trim it down or else get myself overwhelmed w/anxiety and end up locked away in a looney bin somewhere. ;)
So here's a very modest list of what I'd like to accomplish this year.
I've already got 3 commissions lined up for the 1st few months. One queen size rag quilt and two baby quilts. I don't think custom orders are the way I want to go. Something about having deadlines really puts pressure on a girl. With this being said, I may accept an occasional order, but it won't be a big selling point in my Etsy shop going forward.
I aim to finish my Through Thick and Thin scrappy-batik log cabin that I started last January. It's made w/2 different size logs; 1.25" and 2.5" and is destined to be a personal quilt for my king size bed.
I was reminded of another quilt I want to make when I saw Katy's Handsome Shirt Tails quilt.
