I am on a mission to make four quilts by Christmas.
Technically, I'll be wrapping them up (with big red bows) on 12/22, but "Quilts by December 22nd" doesn't have the same ring. One is just for fun and for me to keep (and more than likely will be the first one complete!) but the other three will be gifts for special folks in my life.
Three of them are going to be just like the last one I made. Simple color schemes, pretty patterns, triangles and striped borders. I am taking a short cut this time around and following this method for getting my triangles. Less perfect cutting is totally my jam. (Thank you for the suggestion, Siobhan!!)
The quilt that I'll be keeping is solid colored equilateral triangles. I am usually not a pinks and purples girl, but I am obsessed with this one. Actually, I think addicted is the correct word. I will do a full post with tips for making your own when I finish.
I got a suggestion on my last quilt post to host a quilt challenge. I don't really know how to do that, but I do know that nothing motivates me more than a goal and a public declaration of my intentions. Hopefully, the same will be true for you!
And so, I invite you to post about your own Quilts by Christmas plan on your blog. (Actually, you don't have to make quilts and you don't have to finish by any holiday but set a craft deadline!) And then commit! Get it done. No excuses. I'll be posting here about my own progress a few times over the next few months and each time, you are welcome to share your own updates in the comments or on your own blog.
