TTMT #453 – 2017 Wrap Up

Hello, my dear friends!

Welcome to my first TTMT for 2018. I had an eye-opening time going through my To Do & UFO list and seeing what I got done. I didn’t include all of my new patterns published in 2017, but I do hope to do that for next week’s video.

Free Pattern Day is the first of every month during 2016!

TTMT #350 – Bring it on, 2016!

This video is a wee bit jumpy from all the cutting to get it down to under 15 minutes. Grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy my antics!

Watch last year’s video…report card for 2015’s UFO To Do List coming later this week. 🙂

Below is the full recap of everything I showed you (plus one!) on my 2016 To Do list!

Definitions of some initialisms used in this post:

UFO = UnFinished Object – a project that has been set aside and allowed to collect dust. Chances are it’s existence has been forgotten until it’s pulled out of whatever dark hole it was stuffed into. While there, it probably multiplied like Tribbles, leaving many more UFOs than you remember putting there in the first place.

USO = UnStarted Object – a project that has yet not made it out of it’s incubation period. Often comes in the shape of a stack of fat quarters, a jelly roll or other similarly delicious fabric apparition. Can also appear as a pattern or book with little hearts doodled on the cover. Hopes to be a…

WIP = Work In Progress  – Always in danger of becoming a UFO, a WIP is a project that is currently being worked on, and will hopefully become a…

FO = Finished Object – What all projects dream of being. The object of much blog activity and excitement and a good source of personal pride. The Ultimate Destination of a UFO and WIP.

project of doom 2015
Stonehenge PoD (2015), UFO – My personal quilt from the 2015 reboot of The Project of Doom, a Harry Potter Bookcase quilt. Five blocks (one row!) left to piece before it can become a quilt top. Fabric and patterns are standing by.

Paper Piecing Vintage Signature Quilt - UFO
PPV Signature Quilt (2014), UFO – Signature quilt from PPV. Needs a border and to be quilted & bound.

Hand embroidered flower quilt

Embroidered Flower Quilt (2011), UFO – This was a BOM by a blogger that is no longer online. Borders added, have back & binding. To be quilted & bound. I forgot to show this one in today’s video. Oops!


TABABOM (+ Signature Quilt Blocks) (2012), UFO – The Hobbit Block of the Month on Fandom In Stitches.  Needs to be unbasted and rebasted with new pieced back to include Signature Blocks.

First #finish of 2016 for #TheLinusConnection. The pattern is Topsy Turvy Trees, available in my pattern shop. This top has been on my "to quilt" list since 2012. #ufo2016 #charityquilt #quiltforgood

2013 Project To Do List

Vintage Quilt Top, UFO . My hubby bought this for me for our anniversary several years ago. I have a back and batting for this quilt, but it still needs basting and quilting. It hasn’t happened yet because I’m still undecided on how to finish it. Fingers crossed for inspiration!

Project of Doom 2015 Signature Quilt
PoD 2015 Signature Quilt (2015), UFO – Signature quilt for last year’s Project of Doom on Fandom in Stitches. Needs backing fabric & to be quilted/bound.

Chocolate Challenge Quilt (Chocolate Box)
Chocolate Box Quilt (2015), UFO – Made for my sewing group’s Chocolate Challenge. We all started with the same fabrics and each made a different quilt. Has backing. Needs to be quilted & bound. Free pattern.

First UFO Finish of 2014!

#finishin2014 #charityblanket


I’m happy to share that I managed my first UFO finish for 2014!

Quilt as you go with raggy edge.


This is a simple flannel quilt made using a Quilt As You Go technique, completed with raggy edges instead of binding. I had very little flannel to work with and decided to not add borders.

Now that this quilt is done, it will be donated to The Linus Connection.  I love the simplicity and softness of it and think it will make a very snuggly blanket for a little one in need.

Making it real. #finishin2014


#11 on the list is ready to be crossed off! You can see the quilt blocks, pre-piecing to the right of The List.

Next, I think I’ll tackle #5, the PoD Signature quilt. All it needs is a binding!

Mail from a very special friend! #owlpost


Also this week, I received some special Owl Post from my friend Amber. These two hoot-tastic potholders are twins to the two she sent to my best girlfriend! Also included was a fantastic Harry Potter postcard. My friends are THE BEST!

Papa Bear’s Quilt – 1 of 12

12 for 2012 - 1/12, Papa Bear

Guess who’s going to star in Talk To Me Tuesday next week?

If you guessed Papa Bear, you guessed right!

This is my first UFO finish for 2012.

This quilt was started in 2008 as a pass around with my bee. You can read more about this project in my 12 for 2012 UFO post.

This quilt has always been intended for my hubby and will be his birthday gift in February.

12 for 2012 icon

All my 12 for 2012 posts

Since I ended up working most of Thursday (it was an accident, I swear!), I took yesterday off. I spent the morning having coffee with bee friend Linda while hand stitching the binding to the quilt. I took pre-washing pics yesterday, and then washed it last night. It scrunched up beautifully, especially in the cross-hatching. I love the transformation from bits and pieces I’ve sewn together to a yummy, scrunchy quilt ready to be cuddled and loved after the first wash. I’ll get post-washing pics when there’s more natural light outside.

12 for 2012 - 1/12, Papa Bear

The entire quilt is straight lines because Big E asked for a geometric design. I eyeballed it all, using the shapes of the blocks. The lines aren’t perfect, but I didn’t have any puckering and I love the way the cross-hatching turned out.

12 for 2012 - 1/12, Papa Bear

I put muslin on the back, something I’m becoming more and more fond of doing. I love how distinctly you can see the quilting and the way it looks after washing. This is a pre-wash picture.

We have a Linus Connection sew day today from 9 – 4 at a local non-profit place called The Stitching Studio. It is exactly what it sounds like, a place to stitch. It believe it seats about 15 and has design walls all around, sturdy tables and comfy chairs. There’s a kitchen and a bathroom, perfect for sewing all day!
