2017 Q1 Finishes

Well, I did it!  Completed the 4 WIPs that I made a goal to complete in the first quarter. Q1 Goal post here.

Finish #1 
The Betsy Travel Bag, pattern by Kristi McDonough, @schnitzelandboo.  I finished it just in time to take it on my first work trip at the end of January.  Here it is in action with my laptop roller bag in my AZ hotel room.

Orange/Blue Plus Quilt
I finished the binding just a few days before our road trip, which was my main goal.  It’s a great size for a car quilt! Pardon the random living room floor debris, sometimes you take the pic when you can get it!

Donation Quilt & Kaleidoscope Winter Wallhanging
Done just before the deadline!


I don’t quilt anything larger than a baby quilt on my home machine, I send things out to a local longarmer, so that slows down the process a bit.

Also during the month I made a baby quilt for a coworker using Yvonne’s/Quilting Jet Girl’s tutorial for a quilt from a fitted quilt sheet.  Don’t know Yvonne?  Find her at @QuiltingJetGirl.

That’s it!  I made it!  Now on to Quarter 2!!!





About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    It looks like the link up worked. I love your Betsy bag! I did notice that you are no-reply commentator. You might want to change that setting.
