2.  Hand embroider the "Holly" strip in my snowman quilt.  It is the blank strip under the music strip.


Before:

 You can barely see that I started it on the right side.


After:  Not quite finished yet in March.  FINISHED MAY 9, 2014




3. Finish this Windmill quilt top complete with borders.

Because of all the inquiries I have received over a pattern for this quilt, I am working on a pattern for it and will post it in my Etsy shop soon.  I will post a link on my blog when it is ready.  Please leave a comment with your email if you would like an email when it is ready.

Before:

After: Top done but not the borders.  FINISHED MAY 10, 2014

 Here is a photo of the progress I made on the borders.  It is a pieced border and a bit detailed. 


4.  Make 8 more Windmill blocks for the second quilt I am making out of them.  It is the exact same colors.
Finished March 31
 

5.  I hope to finish the quilting for Mom's quilt  in March.
Finished March 8th

6. Make ten more blocks in my Christmas Log Cabin quilt.
FINISHED MARCH 17, 2014

After:


 7.  Finish kitting my round robin.  It needs to arrive at its new home by March 15th.  I cannot post a picture because it is a secret.  We all sent each other fabric and the receiver selects a pattern, cuts it out, kits it, and sews up the first kit.  The owner of the quilt will receive a finished quilt at the end.

Finished March 7, 2014

8.  Design a quilt for the red and white quilt challenge. 

Finished March 7th 2014 
The first one is for my daughter and is called Jessi's Medallion.  If you are interested in joining a sew-along for it please leave a comment.  More information here.



9.  Machine quilt and bind Jessi's Log Cabin.

Not Finished in March but FINISHED MAY 17, 2014.
I made progress but it is hard to see.  The threads you see are basting stitches.


Linking up tonight with Sew Cute and  Fabric Tuesday
