I'm proud to say I achieved that goal! These are the quilts I made, and only one was a 2013 project:
(click on the photo to get the links to each quilt)
I made some other quilts, too - they're featured in this mosaic along with the ones above:
(Triangle Garden is missing from the mosaic.Oops.)
There were times when I was a bit stressed by the deadlines, mainly because the kids' birthdays are mostly grouped in the April/May/June months, but I do have to say that having a deadline made me significantly more productive. Plus, I converted a few languishing WIPs into finished quilts that I really love so that's a big win in my book.
You'll recall that I once again participated in the 2014 Finish Along party.
1. The Elsa Costume. YES! Mentioned in this post.
2. Co-worker mug rug. YES! This post will count as the link for that project.
3. Michael Miller Spring Cotton Couture Challenge quilt. YES! Pastel Curves is going to live with my Mother-in-Law in her care home.
4. Wonderland and 5. Mod Mood. NOPE. Carried over to Q1, perhaps?
In addition to the foregoing, I made 9 (!) reusable shopping totes for Christmas gifts for teachers (no photos due to sewing to a deadline), a tote for work, a sewing kit for the Teeny Weeny Swap, and a bunch of clothes (for my kid and her doll). I'm pleased with my output!
2015 promises to be full of fun (QuiltCon!) and projects, but I'm not sure exactly which ones. Stay tuned!
