2014 To Do List Update

I thought I would update everyone and myself on my To Do List that I set myself at the beginning of the year.
1. My Pies & Tarts Quilt I am half way through hand quilting this one.
I haven't touched this one yet but now winter is here it may be time to pull it out.

2. My Batik Hexagon Quilt top ready for quilting and binding.

3. My Batik Log Cabin Quilt I am nearly finished the blocks (4 blocks to go)

4. My Farmers Wife Sampler quilt -only has 30 blocks to go then sashing and borders.
Only 5 blocks left and sashing and cornerstones are cut. I sewed the first 3 rows together to see how they were looking.

5. Bonnie Hunters Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt the final layout was only released on 1st January 2014 I have 24 blocks completed.
Only 5 blocks left to go. I think this one is coming with me on retreat so I can complete the last blocks.

6. My Double Wedding Ring quilt I started at the end of October at a workshop. 3 rings completed only.
Nothing more to report on this one but it will be coming with me on retreat this weekend so I am hoping I can do a little bit of work on it.

New things to tackle this year, there are plenty of new things I want to try but there is only 365 days to work with.
7. Building Blocks Quilt. 2014 Free Motion Quilt Along created by Leah Day. This one is going to allow me to tackle 2 things on my list, improve my free motion quilting and have a go at the Quilt as you go technique.
I have completed January-May blocks I haven't started June's blocks yet.

8. A new Cynthia's Ark design featuring our Mystery Batik Sampler Pack. All designed just have to sew, write the pattern and kit it.
This one I have completed the sample blocks to check the measurements so I am ready to sew all the blocks.
