1. DillThis piece has been hanging around since its inception in 2009.
I had developed the design in a class, and constructed the background, but when I got home the project stalled out.
|Finally following my own vision - yay!
The instructor had a different style than mine and was guiding me to follow her voice instead of my own.
Things came to a grinding halt. The excitement was gone, and I was seriously doubting myself.
Over the years I made two more attempts to forge ahead with the instructor's vision, but just couldn't do it. It wasn't coming from my authentic self, so I didn't like anything I tried.
I cut hundreds of tiny pieces to applique, but they all ended up in the garbage.
Following my own vision.
This summer I went back to my original plan of making my dill progress from yellow through yellow-green, and green, to blue-green as the design expands from the center, out.
Miracle of miracles, now I want to finish it!

2. Library Project Quilt Along (2nd quarter project)
In April I'm taking a two-day workshop with Judy Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts!!!! In preparation I've decided to tackle one of the projects from her new book, Quilting Wide Open Spaces.
I'd like to get this pieced and quilted by the end of March. Gulp.
|Umm, maybe this will shrink and become a baby quilt?
3. Kool Kaleidoscope
This is the month for our Guild sponsored workshop with Kim Caskey. We will be making Ricky Tims inspired kaleidoscope quilts.
Fortunately my strip sets are ready to go, so my March goal will be to piece the quilt.
4. Clean instead of quilt. Drat.
I'll be hosting Kim's visit, so probably need to pay some attention to the state of the house before she arrives. Wouldn't want the dust bunnies to attack. Might be a good idea to give her a nice, clean bed, too! And prepare some food. Maybe I should start today...
That's enough for this list! Any other accomplishments will just be "gravy".
Stay tuned. There will be plot twists, I'm sure!
