a WIP and a whim...

I have a goal for January and February to only work on WIPs and UFOs. That goal is helping me to clear the clutter and finally complete projects that I love but that somehow slipped down my list of priorities. So the last few days I have worked on my Americana quilt top:

Finished at 68" x 55"
And I also broke my promise \goal and started a new project!!! But it isn't every week that Denver makes it to the Superbowl so this quick project was a must for this week, so hubby can cuddle up on the couch for the Superbowl with a new broncos quilt! I had bought a few remnant pieces of Broncos fabric at Walmart in 2013 then added a couple more pieces late last week (also from the remnant bin & my only fabric purchases for 2014 so far) to ensure I had enough to make a decent size lap quilt. But despite buying a few dollars worth of fabric for this from the remnant bin, most of this fabric was stash fabric, so I am at least sticking to my commitment to use stash fabrics in 2014! And I will be back to WIPs and UFOs as soon as it is completed!

Finished at 51" x 65" 
So I have two tops to quilt later this week. They will both be quick stitch in the ditch quilted not FMQ'd, so I should have them done by the weekend.


  1. They both look great Marianne! I'm sure Matt will just love his!

  2. Sometimes a"girl's got to do what a girl's got to do"....bet it felt good to get some quick finishes done!!!! :)

  3. Looks fun! We're in Seahawks country around here...I made the kids each a Seahawks scarf, but that's it.

  4. very patriotic with your quilt, good for you finishing UFO`s
