Maybe having a Goal really Works!

A while back I wrote out some finishes I wanted to complete by the end of September.  I am not very good at finishing up things so I thought it  couldn't hurt to see if setting some goals would help.  

Believe me, I am willing to try anything to get me focused on completing some WIPs!



I am so happy to say I finished an item on my list!  This adorable little quilt finished up at about 35 x 40.  It is one of the quilts I made from scrap pieces I received from a friend.

Pretty much all the fabric in the top of this quilt was destined for the deep dark depths of a closet and I just couldn't let that happen.  So home they came with me.





Here is the quilt the scraps came from fresh off my quilting machine.   I think the above triangles I received were cut away from the heart blocks.

I tried to talk my friend into giving me the whole quilt but she doesn't seem to want to part with.



The pattern for this heart quilt can be found in the Sew Red book.  It is a pattern submitted by Tula Pink, who is also the designer of those lovely fabrics in the quilt.   The book was written in support of Women's Heart Health.  There are some great projects by a number of talented designers.  It is definitely worth taking a peak at.



And if you make the heart quilt, don't toss those scraps!

Love both of the quilts on this page. I've had the pattern for the top one pinned forever. I'll be adding the second one as well.

Yaaaay, a finish. Doesn't it feel great? Well done, and such a pretty quilt. I love how those colours work together. How will you celebrate, I'm wondering?

They are both so gorgeous! Encouragement for digging into my burgeoning scrap pile. I make t-shirt quilts so I have tons of scrap by the time I'm done. Thanks for the info on the book.

Love the quilting on this. I have the tula pink snail fabric. I was not sure how to use it or if when cut it would lose the shape, but this looks fabulous.
