Partially completed centre of the 365 Challenge quilt
Things have been a bit quiet around here lately, we have been having the interior of our house painted and that means lots of furniture moving and also provides a good opportunity for decluttering. Some rooms only needed the removal of small items with the larger items of furniture being moved into the middle of the room and covered with a dust sheet to protect from any paint splashes and drips.
Because of the smaller size my workroom needed a slightly different approach, so with the exception of my sewing machine table and the Simply Sixteen everything else was removed. It took me a few days as there was a lot of "stuff" in there, I did start to wonder how I had managed to fit it all in the room, and I know the painter was quite amazed with the amount of "stuff" that came out of the room.
It has taken more than a few days to shift things back into my workroom, I decided to change the layout and reduce the clutter which meant some hard decisions were made but I am quite happy with how it is looking, which means I will be able to get back into my quilting again.
A corner block of the 365 Challenge quilt
On the quilting front, I did have a few finishes this year, although I wasn't able to keep up with the 365 Challenge quilt, but I did download all the blocks so I will be able to continue on with that in 2019 (and no doubt 2020).
Completed Free Wheeling Single Girl flimsy
I enjoyed participating in the Free Wheeling Single Girl QAL, it was a really nice quilt to make and I suspect there will be another one in my future.
Completed Trip Around the World flimsy
I think the best finish for me was finishing my TATW quilt top which I started back in August 2014 and finished in October 2018, all handpieced, now I just have to bite the bullet and get started on the hand quilting.
There were a few other finishes which I will detail in another blog post (once I have found the photos).
