100 Day Hustle Re-Cap

Hello all!  I am finally lifting my head out of the Christmas coma and getting back to my blog. Can't believe it's the end of 2012, whew!  So, it's also time to report on my 100 Day Hustle goes:

1.  Quilt for the hubs - finished the quilt top, assembled the quilt back.  Just need to get it basted, quilted, finished.  This sucker is going to take me forever to quilt, but that's okay!

This quilt is huge!

2.  Finish my EPP quilt - nothing got done on this one.  I tabled it because I am still undecided.  I have a feeling I will be machine quilting this one, but am scared to start.

3.  New Christmas stockings and placemats - well I finished the stockings but not the placemats.  I just ran out of time for that! And I forgot to take a pic of the stockings before packing up all of the Christmas decorations the day after this year....oh yeah, last year it was Feb, this year day after!

4.  Piece my Single Girl quilt - DONE!!  this is a slight change in plans since I discovered that I get too cold at night to sleep under a quilt.  I love them for the couch and to sleep with, but need more warmth in bed!  I paper-pieced this one with Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi line (with a few more AMH fabrics added) and Kona Pepper for the solid.  I ♥ it!!

5.  Christmas quilt, with Brrr fabric - quilt top pieced!  Again, meant for this to be a queen quilt, but opted for lap size after all.  Debating adding grey borders or not.

Removed from the list:

1.  Baby quilt for new niece/nephew - this will be postponed due to my SIL miscarrying at 13 weeks.
2.  Project for Out to Sea fabric - I know what pattern I like, but am waiting to finish some things first!

So, I currently have 5 quilt tops that need to be finished before I start anything else!!  I'm much better at starting projects than finishing them, ugh.  One of my New Year's resolutions is to finish all my unfinished projects before starting anything new :o)

I'm linking up with Kelsey at Kelsey Sews!


  1. That quilt for your husband was so rad! I love it. Congrats on your finishes for the hustle.

  2. Great finishes! I'm the same way - much better at starting (and dreaming up) new projects. I always set the same goal, but then I get distracted by pretty new fabric. Sigh. Vicious cycle I guess.

  3. Love that quilt for your husband! Very funky. :)

    I got a new sewing machine for Christmas & can't decide what to sew first!

  4. All so beautiful and inspiring ; )

  5. Congratulations on your completed projects!!!
    Love the husband quilt...absolutely gorgeous!!

  6. Great quilts - love your single girl one... DOn't give up on EPP mines taking years!

  7. Wow, you had some major progress on those quilts. I love the quilt for your hubs, perfect man quilt and i have been looking at the single girl pattern for a while. I might need to get the pattern now.

  8. So pretty! Love your single girl quilt!! Thanks for joining in :)

  9. So pretty, can I add my opinion on the Christmas quilt....It is so pretty, like I'm in love with it. When I first saw it, it just screamed to me, "PUT RED AND WHITE POLKA DOTS FOR MY BORDER AND AQUA OR LIME GREEN BINDING"... So pretty!
