Alisha - February Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes

So, as I discussed in my post yesterday I decided to join the group A Lovely Year of Finishes via flickr (you can find us here). In keeping with my renewed sense of quilting and getting things done I've already picked out my next project and here she is: (yes, the quilt is a she.. lol)

Spiked Punch Quilt Kit

Isn't she a beauty?! I purchased this quilt kit from another flickr member back in March 2012 and tucked it away in my stash for later. Well the later is now and I plan to have this little baby transformed into a completed quilt top by the end of February. Is it too early to start thinking ahead to borders and a backing? What do you think? Pin It


  1. What fun fabrics. I personally never think it's too early to think of borders and backings. However, I have been surprised a few times when what I imagined in my head is nothing at all like what the quilt ended up looking like. :)

  2. Isn't that the truth! I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and trying the "brown bag" method. Once all the colored bricks are sewn to the white I'll throw them all in a brown paper bag and draw them out randomly. It's somewhat of a big deal for a planner like myself but it's so much more relaxing not worrying about it. I'll be updating with the layout when I get the bricks sewn into rows!
