Do you have some projects that are really long term quilts? I have been working on a tiny basket quilt for a long time. This quilt is all cut out, and my goal is make one basket each night. These are four inch baskets, and the handles are not appliqued down, yet.
These two inch bowties are another long term project. If I make five bowties every night, along with one basket, in one year? Two finished long term projects!!! Fifteen minutes of piecing every night is my goal for this year.
I have always wanted to make a Red Cross quilt!! I have been savoring and hoarding these nine patches, from an exchange years ago. My red crosses will be the corner stones. Clara Barton founded the Red Cross, so this quilt will be the Clara Barton quilt!
And a little something made out of leftover mystery quilt pieces and parts...I usually make one of these from leftover pieces!!!
