January Quilt Nine Update 

January has been moving along and I have been sewing a little bit every week. I don’t have any finished projects to show off this month but for me my quilt nine plan was to have a slow sewing year. I have spent most of January planning and thinking about what and why I want to make things this  year.


First up is my progress on the collection quilt. I was trying to decide how I was going to plan out this amazing quilt and the answer almost fell in my lap. 



If you are on Instagram I’m sure you saw a few make light posts that included a breakdown of the colors in your Instagram feed for 2016. When you signed up to get your colors you also get a breakdown of your most frequently seen colors. As soon as I saw the breakdown I knew I needed to make a quilt. The collection quilt seemed an easy fit as I wanted to play with pattern and colors mixing.  So the planning and coloring began. Not too long after I ordered my fabric. Now it’s time to get started.

Next up is  “The epic mega hexie quilt “.  I started this quilt about 2 1/2 years ago and didn’t do much with it the past year. This project is very near and dear to my heart. It is not only a very personally important quilt it is kind of big  i.e. Larger than King size. It s a really big quilt made of very small pieces, 3/4 inch heroes to be exact. I have a plan to get the top done this year and would love to at least start the quilting this year.


I’ve been collecting and selecting fabrics for my make do quilt and my pineapple blocks are sitting by my machine ready to go. I have the fabrics picked and waiting to get going on my galaxy done quilt. The only quilts I haven’t touched or planned for are the on point quilt and the xmas quilt in my quilt nine. Over all I’m extremely happy with where I am for the first month of 2017.

I am also in a few swaps and just wrapped on up. I’m in the MQG swap, the pink swap , and the word swap. I recently finished my mini mini for the pink swap and I’m halfway done with my MQG swap mini. Still on my to do list is the mosaic for my word swap partner. Thanks for checking in and I hope you are moving along on your list of things to achieve this year too.

  1. Quilting Adventures/Phoebe are offering the Collections quilt this year. She offers a different way to needle turn appliqué so that you don’t have to baste like CF recommends. If you want me to show you, I’d be happy to.
