Finish Along Quarter 1 2017 Goals!

Ok, I just got a new machine, but have been sick and haven’t even gotten it out of the box! But this weekend…. I’m starting my list!! It’s pretty similar I know…. Ok so these top three are all done and basted… Just waiting to be quilted….

And the third one that I can’t find a picture for is an old one that has been sitting on the shelf for about 3 years. Sitting there with a front and back done! So it just needs a little quilting love…

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

I’m also inspired to finish this one using the quick curve ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful! I have a great idea of who it is going to go to, so I’m inspired again!

InsideOutPineapple-Cover-ImFeelinCrafty

There’s a requested Christmas mini quilt using my Inside Out Pineapple block….. That I have started, but not finished… These blocks take a long time! It’s worth it in the end, but….

And I’d love to get caught up on my Seattle Modern Quilt Guild BOM quilt by the end of the year….

And lastly, a new one to the list, but I want to start and finish it now. It’s a Christmas quilt and I want to have it done for next year and at the rate I’m going, it won’t be done, unless I do it now!

Ok, this list is insane long… AGAIN…. But I want to get these DONE!!!!!!!! And some are almost done! I won’t finish them all, of course, but I’m hoping to make a good dent in the pile!

More Tree Pillows!

Looking for a pretty quick holiday project to fill your next few days? I mean who has anything to really do between now and Christmas, right? Ha!

I’m so excited to have my own tree pillows! Do you remember the ones I made last year? You can see them here

TreePillows-Trees-ImFeelinCrafty

I made these from the scraps from last years pillows. Yes, it did take me all year…. Moving on… So last year I used the tutorial from the Quick Curve Ruler ladies over at Sew Kind of Wonderful. I used it pretty right on. With a long piece down the middle to make the trunk of the tree. This year I did a little bit of experimenting. For one thing, I wanted a pointy top!

TreePillows-DetailSm-ImFeelinCrafty

For each tree, I started with by following the tutorial. Then I sewed the left and right sides of the tree together. For the little pillow, I cut off the top of the bottom two blocks. And the bottom off the top block. I wanted more thickness to the tree, but with a pointy top!

And for the bigger pillow, I cut the bottom off of each block. For the top one, I think I took off 1.5″ and down at the bottom blocks, I only cut off about .5″ of the block. And then varied the dimension between the others. This way I got a more skinny tree and a still had my pointy top!

TreePillows-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

I really need to start adding zippers… I know it’s not hard. I more or less have a problem with planning ahead and getting the right size and color! So I stuck with the envelope back. I’m also usually not a fabric line kinda person… But you can probably tell that I have a little obsession with Cotton and Steel going on right about now!

TreePillows-Collection-ImFeelinCrafty

I’m building up my holiday pillow collection! I had a little collection of CB2 knock off pillows, but I wasn’t feeling it this year and gave them away… I’m going more with the quilted look for the next few years….

And even if I should have been sewing for others, I needed to finish these! And I’m glad I did…. Have you made any quick curve ruler projects?
