January Project


The rules of the Lovely Year of Finishes are to only  pick ONE PROJECT to finish in the designated month. While I want to simply pick the quickest to finish, I am not going to do that. Instead, I am going to pick a different one and push myself a bit.

One of the four Hero Quilts simply needs to finished quilted and then bound (no time at all) but any one of the other 3 requires an expansion in size (more on that later) and then layering, quilting, and binding.

I am going to choose one of those from my 2015 First Quarter Projects. Because the recipient of the four of these quilts (well, the mom of the four boys receiving these quilts) reads my blog – occasionally anyway – I can’t post a pic of the full quilt. For that reason, this is all I can share:


That note is from when I set about layering all four of the quilts to discover my math had been off and 3 of the 4 were the wrong size and I needed to be creative about making them bigger…..Oh yeah, that happened!!

  1. Good luck with your finish! I also thought about choosing my easiest, quickest project for certain success, but I have a queen-sized quilt for my daughter that I am hoping to finish in January. I love the look of your Hero Quilt. Looks fantastic and someone will certainly cherish it always.
