A major goal I set for myself this year is to finish at least 12 of my UnFinished Objects in my quilt projects stash. Since January I have finished one more of the three quilts blocks from a block a month project from a few years ago. I opted out after 3 months so 3 blocks is all I have. I will probably make these into a table runner.
I also finished the black and orange quilt top that is my first priority because I want to hang it on my family room wall. I am anxious to start quilting this because I want to practice with my software.
Other things I have been working on have taken more priority. I am entering a Cotton Theory Certified Instructor Challenge and the deadline for the entry is April 1. The challenge is to design and construct a pillow sham using a particular fabric line. Entries will be hung in The Quilt Yard in Osseo, WI (owned by Betty Cotton, inventor of The Cotton Theory), and customers will vote for their favorite. The winner will receive a $500 gift card, second place a $300 gift card, and third place a $100 gift card. I have never entered a contest before, but have wanted to, so I am really excited about this. You can read more about The Cotton Theory at LanaQuilts.com.
I have also been working on making a pair of slacks and am taking a Craftsy class to learn fitting and construction techniques. It has been a long while since I have made any clothes for myself, but I want to get back to doing so. You can read about my inspiration at LanaSews.com. I have cut out the muslin to test for fit, and will get back to it after I finish the pillow shams for the challenge mentioned above.
So, I have been sewing, which makes me very happy, and after I finish the challenge, I will get back to my UFOs and clothing construction and will have more progress to report by May 1.
