  1. I don’t know what happened to my comment. If this posts twice, my apologies. Congratulations on your accomplishments, and thank you to your wonderful sponsor for the giveaway prizes. I participated in a sew along during 2017, and have finished all but the last 2 blocks. Before March I want to have the top completed, quilted, and bound. This quilt stays with me and I can’t wait to see it finished.

  2. I participated in the Honey Pot Bee on Molli Sparkles blog. I have all but 2 of the blocks finished. Before my birthday in March I want to complete the top, quilt it and get the binding on. This quilt is for me and I can’t wait for it to be done. Congratulations to you, and thank you to your wonderful sponsor for the giveaway.

  3. I finally managed to finish a square block quilt with button detail for my sister for Christmas so now I have the time to finish my hexagonal quilt which I have been working on for ages! This was my first foray into quilting and didn’t realise how hard it would be using tiny hexagons!

  4. The year is just beginning – So much potential! So many ideas! I am hoping to make a quilt for my brother’s baby (due at the end of January), and then we will see from there. I have lots of ideas and plans 🙂

  5. This year I very much hope to make a quilt for my grandson Tom .
    It is long overdue , as I have made my four granddaughters their quilt for there 2nd birthday . Tom is 2 past in September .i need to get a move on .
    Things have beem a bit hectic over the last few months , moving house (downsizing) no sewing !,
    Just before Christmas I organised my sewing space ,and after seeing your robin at the Patchwork Guild , I fell in love with it so much . I bought your pattern , was planning to make the robin for myself ,using tweeds from my mum’s house , (by the way she died almost 20 years ago)) my friend suggested my girls would also like one each .
    So I did indeed , I made 4 of them .
    My daughters were pleased to get a present with a link to their grandmum , plus I was delighted to begin sewing again.

  6. I think I’ve followed your blog for all of those years, congratulations!! I most want to do some original quilt designs this year.

  7. Congratulations Judith on another mile stone. I wish you every success in your new adventure at the “MIll”
    I am looking forward to the paper piecing butterfly cushion and perhaps use hexagons for something more than the bag I made this year.
    See you next year Judith and wish a Happy New Year to you and all my quilting buddies xx

  8. Hi Judith

    It seems you have met a lot of milestones and reached a lot of destinations during 2017, 1000+ followers on Instagram (a great achievement!), new house and new sewing class facilities! I wish that 2018 will go a bit less fast and eventful but nevertheless as successful as 2017 did for you. Foundation Paper Piecing is one of my “to learn techniques” for 2018 I am so pleased that you will be teaching it in class in January! I can’t wait to get started and to see the Mill!!!

  9. After a year of everything being in storage while selling and moving house I’m looking forward to everything. But my niece is expecting my first great nephew in April so something to welcome the next generation is high on the list

  10. I am looking forward making a baby quilt for a newborn and two twin quilts for two little girls for their birthdays!

  11. I’d really love to finish my double quilt – a project which has been left to the side for several years!

  12. I am looking forward to using my Liberty fabric to attempt a first full size quilt! Congrats Jude, can’t wait to come to the Mill in January.

  13. Alongside the English paper pieces project I’ve bought into a Kaffe Fassett mystery quilt starting in March. I did so many pieces as gifts for Christmas so it will be nice to do something and keep it!!

  14. I already have the fabric set aside for a few projects, including your porthole raindrop quilt. I also want to make a start not he Jen Kingswell Green Tea and Sweet Beans pattern. Happy Blogaversary. x

  15. In 2017 I “artfully” (eyeroll!) rolled a tablecloth into a circle to use as a Christmas tree skirt. Hopefully this is the last year I do that – In 2018 I want to make one for myself and one for each of my kids (who used their floors as a skirt … LOL) 😀 The Christmas fabric box is still beside my sewing table – I need to start planning and get cracking before the urge disappears!

  16. 7 years of blogging and surpassing 1000 IG followers is certainly worth celebrating! Congratulations! I hope 2018 is very successful for you in every way! This past year, I made the Postcard From Sweden quilt top using a variety of solids from my stash. It’s the largest top I’ve made and I put it on hold to finish. This coming year, I plan on taking a few deep breaths and get it finished! I know I’ll love it even more!

  17. In 2017, both of my sons were married and my father passed away. So in 2018 I plan on focusing on myself for once! I would love to make a quilt for MYSELF, new curtains and some pillows while I’m at it. Up until now, I’ve given away everything I’ve made- it’s time to beautify my own home!!
