ALYoF Roundup and New Goal

I completed nine months worth of goals for the A Lovely Year of Finishes challenges this year. It was a great and productive year! I did seven quilts, recovered our dining room chairs, and made makeup bags for my mom. Without further ado...

1. January's goal was to complete this Triangle Quilt for my little man's bed. He adores all things fire trucks.

2. February's goal was to complete this Charming Lucy quilt with Jubilee fabric. It ended up in my Shop.

3. In March I decided to finish this Line Dance quilt. Also available in my shop.

4. April's goal was to complete this fun quilt with the S'More Love line using the Happy Weekender pattern.

5. In May I made a quilt for me using V. and Co. Color Me Happy line. I adore this quilt from the Honey Honey Layer Cake tutorial.

6. I didn't play along in June but for July I made a quilt for my Niece's wedding.

7. We had a lot of family coming in August and our dining chairs were in a sad state so my goal that month was to recover our chairs with this awesome laminated cotton by Kate Spain.

8. September saw the finish of my Pixel BYU quilt. LOVE!!

9. Then we had a big move making me unable to play along again until December. But I finished the year our well with another goal accomplished - Makeup bags.

I had so much fun doing this last year. This is only a part of what I finished for the year. I made 23 quilts and 19 minis or pillows. I also made several pouches, crocheted a bunch of hats and learned how to knit. I was tempted to write a year in review post but I don't think it's going to happen. If you're curious click here to see my finishes for the year.

As far as the new year I joined up with the Sew My Stash 2015 challenge. I am excited to create and make with these! I'm only going to be purchasing background, backing, and binding this year. All other fabric is going to come from this lovely stash. However, I reserve the right to go crazy on fabric for birthdays and other holidays. ;) It's going to be fun! I usually buy fabric with a project in mind so these already have a job to do and I can't wait to see it take form!
So for my January ALYoF goal I'd like to make these 80 foxes into a quilt top. It would be awesome if I could finish the whole thing but I'll be conservative and just go for the top at this point.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join me this year as I sew with my stash and it's not too late to make your own goal for January and link up with ALYoF!
