Better Late Then Never - 2014 Library Project List

I posted my 2014 Quilting List back in my Jan 19 post but I'll add some pictures in this more elaborate post :) I posted the first quilt that I'm making for the 2014 year. The Scrappy Logs quilt top is complete, and will hopefully be finished in the next few weeks.

The next quilt on my list is the Funfetti Quilt in McCalls America Makes Fast Quilts 2013. I picked out eight fat quarters from the So Happy Collection by Deena Rutter for this quilt. First time that I am working with fabrics from a collection. Normally I just mix and match my fabrics until I am happy with the result. Pictured is the magazine cover, pattern and the fabrics I'll be using :)





Next on my quilting list is a quilt for my Godson. I've bought the fabric since I asked him what he wanted on his quilt. My 4 year old Godson said sharks, fishes, boats, lobsters, and crabs. So I found some nautical themed fabric along with some shark material. Ironically, the first item sharks was the most difficult fabric to find. I'm still debating on the pattern that I'll be using for this one. I've seen a few ideas but haven't figured out one yet. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it :)







A quilt for my husband to be (by the time I make it, we'll most likely be married lol) which is Dressed to the Nines in Quilting Quickly. He wants the fabric to be reds, blacks and whites. I've started cutting up my 5" squares for this. I need 144 - 5" squares and since I'm cutting them up myself from different fabrics, it's taking me longer than if I just bought charm packs. I'm a fan of precuts but I couldn't do that for this project. I wanted it to be all fabrics that I or he picked out and cut them myself.



This is a small project but I would like to try to make some Wise Owl pincushions from Simple Quilts & Sewing. I put two on my list to make. They are quite cute and I would like to further my experience by making something different than quilts.



For some Christmas decor, I would like to make these Shabby Chic Stockings from Holiday Crafts 2012 from Better Homes and Garden magazine. I borrowed this pattern from my mom's collection of quilting/sewing books. I know it's not exactly a quilting magazine but it is a sewing project and I haven't attached any buttons or any other embellishments to my projects. So this would be a good learning experience and they would be beautiful at Christmas time :)

So next on the list was Mug Rugs. I ordered a book called Mug Rugs by Christa Rolf a few months back. I still haven't received it yet so I may have to switch that project for another depending on when I receive the book.

Next is making 4 Busy Blankees. I've finished one and have three more to go to complete this goal. This pattern was in Sew It Today February/March 2014.



Finally, the last project I have on my list is Whispering Lake quilt in Quilt It Today Jan/Feb 2014. I have quite a few Fat Quarters so I thought this would be a great project to use some of my stash of  Fat Quarters.


Well that's my list. Hopefully I'll be able to complete all these projects this year :)
