My Last WIP Wednesday Post of 2014

Happy New Year!  To be honest, I'll be glad to see 2014 go.  It wasn't a bad year, but it wasn't a great year either.  And because I really don't feel like looking back at 2014, I won't be posting a mosaic of all my makes for the year.  Instead, I decided to write a final WIP Wednesday post even if there doesn't appear to be a linky over at Freshly Pieced today.

I am closing the year and starting the new one working on my New Wave quilt.  We found out right before the Holidays that my brother's mother-in-law has a very aggressive breast cancer and will need to undergo 6 months of chemo therapy.  She will lose her hair and pretty much feel like crap.  And what do quilters do when someone needs a little support and comfort?  We make quilts.  So New Wave will be going to Liane and I hope will make the next 6 months somewhat easier.

I started with straight lines with the walking foot to echo the seams and will be filling the blocks with a number of different FMQ designs.

I have been working on other projects, but my sewing room is such a mess right now, I can't be bothered to try and find them all!  I'm guessing organizing the sewing room is going to be a must once New Wave is done and gifted.

I also hope to get my act together and start blogging more regularly.  December was so busy, both at home and at work, I just didn't have the energy to try and write anything other than shopping lists and meeting minutes!

So here's to 2015!  Hope it's a good one!



  1. You are so thoughtful and caring. Can't wait to see New Wave finished. :) Hope you have a blessed new year!

  2. The quilt is sure to bring her comfort. Your plan for quilting it sounds perfect. I hope 2015 is a great year for you!

  3. What a great quilt! Can't wait to see it when it's done! I know your brother's MIl will appreciate it and get lots of use out of it. I will keep her in my prayers. I wish you a great 2015! I am also hoping to blog a lot more this year and hope it will be better than 2014. Here's to a Quilty 2015!

  4. I've always loved this one. I'm glad you're getting it quilted and found such a great home for it. My mom had breast cancer two years ago and it was quite the ordeal. She has now been cancer free for about a year but says the chemo was the worst, especially sitting in a cold room for hours on end. This quilt will be loved and give her something fun to look at. I also hear you on the no review. I made so much and the pictures are not in one spot on my computer and the idea of digging around just made me tired.

  5. I love the New Wave pattern and have done it myself - I love the fabrics you've chosen for your quilt, what a lovely gift it will be :)
