Last year in January I told you that my quilting goal for the year was to stitch something every day. You can read about that here. I kept it up for about 6 months, longer than most of my goals last, but not long enough to have achieved what I set out to do. So this year I have, surprise surprise, the same goal! And unlike last year, I didn't fail on the very first day! I am 3 days into the goal and right on track. I also christened 2009 the year of the mini quilt. I made a handful, but nowhere near what I had envisioned, so I am going to steal from myself and call 2010 the year of the mini quilt. Again. And guess what? I have already made one and have it up on the wall!
January 1st I made the top ...
and on the 2nd quilted and bound it.
It is called a Wave Runner quilt, and a lot of us in blogland have joined in the Wave Runner Quilt Along fun! Go have a look at Victoria's blog called Bumble Beans Inc and be prepared to be inspired! I can promise you that the technique is super duper easy and SO much fun!
I am thinking that if I were to take a photo of what I stitch every day, that would motivate me to both stitch more, and blog more. I hate to make that a goal for the year - I'm not going to say that I will post every single day, but I will make it an 'unofficial' goal:)
My gallery of quilts in my hallway is growing...Can you imagine if I were to make one a week for a year? That's 52 mini quilts for my gallery. A lofty goal indeed, but then, January is always full of lofty goals!
Back tomorrow with pics of another mini quilt I have started, and this time it has applique, my very favorite kind of quilting.
Zip Zing Wow! it looks fabulous Joanna!! Woo hoo!! well done! colors dance!
I LOVE it!!!!! Bravo Bravo!!!
Love your mini waverunner! This is on my to-do list this year!
That is really cute and so cool. Hope you have nice big quilts to put over your knees over there!!!
Very ambitious indeed! I do love that new one you made, it's so YOU!
Would look nice on the table too, under your gorgeous cake stand =)
No quilting here. Just catching my breath and getting ready to start the New Year...tomorrow! LOL!
Your doll quilts look fabulous. I hope to make at least three or four this year. Blogging keeps me on track but it takes a lot of time too. The trick is to find the balance.
Your wall is coming around nicely. I love the wave runner. Someday I'm going to make it too.
Love your waverunner and your quilt wall!! What a great idea!
Woo Hoo.....your waverunner turned out great!!! It wasn't too hard and was kind of fun wasn't it!!! It
sure fits right in the others on you 'gallery' wall....ok, I told you it looks you have room for about 60...well look....now you only have 59 more to go...HA!
Looking good! I keep thinking 'funky funky' in the tune of superfreak whenever I see it haha.
Joanna, clicked over from Bumble Beans to see your waverunner. Love it!!! I like all your other minis as well. Great resolutions. I do like the trying to sew some each day. I hope you don't mind, but after I saw your waverunner mini, I decided to quilt mine in a grid fashion as well. I will post about it tomorrow for Sew and Tell Friday and I plan to link here. Thanks for the inspiration.
I love your work!! The three houses together is my fave!!
well done! colors dance!
Work from home India
Your wave runner quilt is WONDERFUL! I am planning to make a couple small ones this year for gifts. Hope mine turn out as well as yours.
I love the mini wave runner and I think I'll try my had at one this weekend. What is the finished size?
