I plan to graduate this year, so I'm definitely not going to make it to 15. I have exams in the last week of Jan. and when I'm done with them, I'm going to pack my books away for a week and replace them with my sewing machine and fabrics and hopefully tick off the first two off the list.

1. Finish flower fabric baby quilt
2. Finish jeans quilt
3. Autumn leaves table runner
4. Slayer wall hanging I've been promising my bf for forever.

Yay, my first quilt is done! Cheesy The spiral quilting ended up disastrous so I unpicked it all and just did (very shaky) diagonals instead but I'm still so happy with it!

And thanks for the nice comments and suggestions on the photo quilt. I think I'm going to do hand quilting!

Nice job ZidishaLuxe - sewing t-shirt quilts is a bear, it least to me.  I love the layout of your photoquilt as well

So my job with my guild this year is Workshop and Retreat Coordinator with my good friend (klum78, who I met through Craftster!). We just had our first workshop Friday and it was so fun. It was an Improv "Color Party" workshop with Jessica Darling and the premise is that you pick a focus fabric (Party Host) and then work on choosing other fabrics (Social Networker, etc) to tie it all together. Everyone brought scraps and we shared them to make our quilt blocks. This is what I got done in the 7 hour class!

My Party Host


Started out making a bunch of 1/4 circles, and then decided I needed a Wonky Star


Started working on a bunch of HSTs to make a zigzag to go down the length of the quilt, a smaller version of the wonky star with a fussy cut bird (I named him Roy) from a Laura Gun scrap I found on the table, and some Hourglass blocks that I will set on point to mimic the lines in the circle block.



We took pics of everyone's progress at the end of the day, this is what I had, plus another 8 or so quarter circles and 30 HSTs that still needed pressing and trimming.

Thank you all! I'm so happy they're not taking up storage space anymore. Cheesy

Mare, I love the divided circles! They look so neat with the polka dots and circular floral motifs. Really cool.
