What's Next?

This is my post-Houston get-productive period. That means classes are about finished for the year and I don't have to go anywhere for a while.

I just finished Circa 2016 and am pleased with how it turned out. This pattern is still available for purchase from Temecula Quilt Company.

Now it's time to clear away the clutter from the stuff I brought home from Houston and make a plan for the rest of this year. I didn't buy a lot, mostly thread:

There are a few gifts to sew, quilt and finish--that won't take long. So, I've decided to finish a very long, on-going quilt: Ruffled Roses, the 2011 Block of the Month from The Quilt Show:

A few months ago, I put this on the design wall to inspire/prod me to finish it. Today, when the clutter is stashed away, I will get back to it--my goal is to have the top done by the end of 2018.  

My Lifetime Quilt is almost done too, another Finish I want to complete by the end of this year:

Are you busy with sewing projects now or do holiday preparations take over? I don't like to shop and only do it when I must. The kids won't be here for Christmas so holiday decorating will be limited to a few of my favorite things. There is no reason I can't get these two quilt tops completed.

Let's Quilt!



  1. No reason you can’t get them done! Love your UFOs!

  2. I love, love ,love your Lifetime Quilt!! I look forward to your finish.

  3. A lot of family things happen during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas - our 50th anniversary is our biggest, so minimal sewing for me. Beautiful projects, Barbara.

  4. A great looking finish.
    Ruffled roses appears to be an elegant beauty.
    I especially love the Lifetime project!
    At this time of year I don't get a whole lot of sewing time. Mostly just stolen moments in the sewing room to help me stay balanced. :)

    1. A little sewing time can keep us from getting "grouchy".

  5. I really like the border in the Temecula quilt ... it's quite fascinating! Perfect time for wrapping up all the projects!! :)
