2 for 2 so far…

2nd post for 2011, we are on a roll!

So this year I am again challenging myself to finish 52 sewing projects in 52 weeks. The project does not have to be any specific size to qualify and I’m calling them sewing projects rather than quilting projects this year because I have some curtains to make and I plan on counting them too!

Last year I completed 39 projects falling a bit short of the 52, so to keep me accountable I will post my projects here and put a gallery of the projects to date on a separate page.  So far this year I up to 4 and here they are.

#1 MiPhone bag for my friend Cindy

#2 "Proud Papa" for my Mom

#3 "Daisy Daze" for my Mom

#4 "Struttin" for my Mom

The 3 “Chicken” pieces for my Mom are McKenna Ryan designs. They are fun quick fusible projects which took me way to long to finish, sorry Mom! The MiPhone bag is my new design not yet published.  I will be teaching this project at Gingers Quilt Shoppe on Feb 5. www.gingersquiltshoppe.com . This is a great purse that you customize to fit your phone and is wonderful for travel. You should be able to finish your first one  in class.   I made several as gifts for Christmas this year and everyone loved them.

This week is the Road To California quilt show and though I don’t have a quilt in the show myself this year, I am excited to see how the judging went after helping to unpack the quilts and getting a sneak preview.  I’ll be sure to report in and post some photos of my favorites.
