January Finishes

Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them. 
Joseph Joubert

January is winding down.  It just flew by but I HAVE BEEN PRODUCTIVE!  Yeah!
Want to see what I did?

1. Got the binding on this quilt:

 I didn't make the top so I'm not showing it.  Here's a look at the quilting.

I didn't publish a list of what I was going to work on in January because I didn't know what I would be doing other than the Blog Hop quilt.  I should have just written down what I had managed to get moved upstairs to work on.  Duh!  I really made a dent in that pile.

February's list is going to be to continue to get to the bottom of it.  Here are my goals for the month:
  1. Blog Hop Quilt for It's all about me
  2. Bind a Bed sized Mystery Quilt
  3. Get Borders on a Kid's Quilt
  4. Finish Sewing Orange and Blue Tumbler Top Together
  5. Flannel Baby Blanket 

I'll have more on the 3 mystery projects I finished soon. 
**Edit:  Mystery is revealed HERE!


  1. You did get a lot accomplished! Great start for the new year!

  2. You tease! :D What are these mysterious objects? First made me wonder if they're pajama holders, but they're too small. . . Pop up animals? CHOCOLATE HOLDERS!!!! hehe

  3. I am intrigued by those mystery objects too, hope you don't hold us in suspense for too long Patricia!

  4. Great job on your January finishes.

  5. A big WOW. You did have a great January. I loved looking at your photos. Found your blog through Monthly TO do List. XX Kathleen

  6. Those bunnies are sweet and love all the mystery fabric circles!!

  7. You've been busy. Great jobs. What a great oldie to get finished. I have some that are pretty dated too! My January was consumed with one project! It is somewhat completed. I posted in my plans for February. I'd love you to come by.
    I enjoyed my visit. You've inspired me so I am going to follow so you can keep on giving me inspiration. You'll see my little blue slippers on your list. And, I am going to sign up for emails. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Have a wonderful Sunday,

  8. OK what are the mystery objects? They look like fun.

  9. What is the deal with the mysterious project. Is it a miniature pop up bag? Will you have a pattern for this secret thing?

  10. good luck with your goals and thanks for linking up!

  11. Wow! I can't believe you got so much done. Nice list for February. Good luck with it. (Aren't you glad you finished the bunny quilt? It's really adorable and I haven't seen anything like it before - that's a good thing.)

  12. Wow, you've had a very productive January! Whoop whoop for you!!
