February Goals

The Hugs & Kisses Quilt top is finished. I can't wait to complete this quilt. The backing will have a fun mix of Riley Blake and minky.

But this will have to wait. I've been commissioned to make two baby quilts for twin girls due early in April. I've decided that these quilts will have to take priority because twins usually arrive early. Plus, I'm excited to be able to design my first quilt. Now I usually don't follow quilt patterns. I've resized patterns, but I've never started from scratch.

With these quilts, I'm starting from scratch. It was neat to go from drawing to draft. This morning I went to the local quilt shop to pick out fabric.

So this is my goal for February. I need to finish two baby quilt tops. Hopefully, I will complete them too. It's a short month, though, so I won't push it.

  2. Your designs are great! You'll have fun with these! I'm working on a pair of commissions, too, but not quite as fun. Baby quilts are the best.

  4. Really like your hugs and kisses top - such a great balance of colour, solids and patterns. It's just a delight. The fabrics for the twin quilts look like fun too! Look forward to seeing the results.
