Last of the 2022 60 Projects - Block 11 of the Snapshots Wall Hangings

I finished the Sailboat block from the Jolly Jabber quilt along (You can find here). It took me a while to figure out how I was going to quilt it and ended up going with a wave pattern to mimic water and wind. 

This is the last item I finished in 2022. So the next post in finishing projects in 2023 I will show you my process for choosing and what my particular rules are for them.

60 Projects in 2022- Christmas/Winter Album

As you know I had a lot of quilts on my list of projects but I had quite a few paper crafts as well. This Album I realized dated back to 2013. Yikes! I think I didn't touch it because it was Christmas and didn't feel it was a priority. I will have a video on how I decorated it coming up as soon as I edit it. I will post it here when I do but for now here are the photos. I'm pretty sure this was a Paper Phenomenon Album Tutorial I had bought but it's just too long ago and I just can't remember as well as the paper line used. I tried researching what it was but it's gone from the data banks I guess. This is why I need to finish projects when I start them, lol.

Keep watch for the video coming soon.....

60 Projects in 2022- Rosette 3 - Millefiori Quilt-Along

Although I had hoped to be further along on this quilt I just feel that it should not be rushed. One of the hardest parts of this quilt is picking the fabric each time. I bought fat quarter stacks before I knew what the project was going to be so I need to be careful when it comes to cutting it. Fussy cutting can cause a lot of waste so the thought process for picking the right fabric can take time as well as choosing the outer rounds color as to not be the same as the rosette next to it. It would have been easier to designate a color for each rosette but I really think I will enjoy the outcome of the colors I chose even if it means it will take a little longer. My goal is to finish the top this year. I really like having a hand project to do when I just want to listen to music or podcasts.

You can find the details here on my progress with this quilt.

60 Projects in 2022 - Patchwork Swoon Quilt

In many of the quilts I had to finish, a lot of them just needed to be quilted and the binding put on. This one was easy because I sent it to a long arm quilter to quilt it and all I had to do was put the binding on. This is a quilt I made for the little cubby bench I have in my craft room so it is in my craft room colors with cozy Fireside (feels like a teddy bear) fabric on the back.

This is the pattern, Patchwork Swoon by Thimble Blossoms and you can find it here.

My Favorite Color Quilt - Blocks 6-15

Well I didn't finish this quilt last year but it will be added to my unfinished projects for 2023. I did get quite far and this post will get you all up to date on where I'm at. Here are blocks 6 to 15.

Block 6- Blocks 4 and 5 are the reason I fell so far behind because of the issues I had with the sizing so when I saw this one was next I was too scared to start. I really had  no reason to because it came together fairly quickly without incident which motivated me to do more but it was probably three month before I actually touched it.

Block 7

Block 8

Block 9

Block 10

Block 11

Block 12

Block 13

Block 14

And finally Block 15

I only have 5 more blocks to go but because they were added to the 2023 list, they will be randomly chosen. I will have more on that when I post about this year's challenge.

You can follow along from the beginning here.
