I have a real problem of starting a bunch of projects with great intentions in mind but never finishing them. I know that I am not the only one with this problem, but sometimes it really helps when other people hold you accountable. Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa from Sew Bitter Sweet Designs are hosting a group called "2013 - A Lovely Year of Finishes". I just had to join. It will be so exciting for me to accomplish something each month especially when working almost full time and raising two little ones.
So for my January goal, I want to finish working on this purple and teal hourglass quilt that I started last year. I am making it for a family friend who is having a baby in February 2013, so finishing it in January would definitely be ideal. I am using a free tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew, which you can find here. It is her Pink Hourglass Quilt, which I think is absolutely adorable. The new mom has chosen to use the Brooklyn nursery bedding by the Pottery Barn, so I will be making my Pink Hourglass Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew in teals, purples, and white. Here are the 8 different blocks that I will be using throughout the quilt.
