December goals for WIP :: 12/4/13

So this weekend included lots of great food, good company and lots of quilting - hope yours did too!  I got to finish up some goodies for retreat which was a nice *short* break from quilt wrangling.  Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced again this week to keep the momentum going now that I'm back to work post-vacation.

Once I finished up the Christmas quilt, I wasted no time in pulling out the next quilt top from the pile to be finished.  This time it was my outdoors challenge quilt top and I got it basted and into the machine.  I had some definite ideas for the quilting in mind and pulled out matching thread colors before starting to stitch.

Hopefully, I'll be able to finish the quilting on this one before the holidays creep up as this is my December goal to finish up A Lovely Year of Finishes in style!  Linking up with Fiber of All Sorts and making it official that I've participated in it for 11 months this year.  Glad to have made so much progress in finishing up a good number of quilts this year with the help of deadlines and public accountability.  Good luck to all on finishing your December goals!


  1. Fun quilting on that outdoors quilt - I haven't talked myself into trying that type of FMQ yet, changing it up from area to area. It's somehow kind of scary, but it looks so nice when it's all done!

  2. Quilting really makes the quilt! What a fun project.
