This whole project to finish 12 in 2012 has been very motivating! I have been sewing my little heart out, but I still haven’t finished January or March’s UFOs, whoops!
January project, still in progress
January’s project is being attempted to be quilted as I go (or QAYG – which is “Quilt As You Go” method, using those wacky acronyms that quilty people use and I take a while to decipher). I have quilted all of the three sections and now I just need to get it together into one large quilt. I am afraid to put them together and I know that is what is blocking me from feeling confident enough to go for it.
Happily distracted with cute clothing patterns online for free!
I have been making cute clothes though, my first time ever, unless the skirt I made in 8th grade Home Ec counts…that skirt’s process was so painful, I don’t really count that as fun or sewing, more like torture!
Fat Quarter Dress
I made two skirts for each of my daughters using this Moda Tutorial from this awesome blog of PolkaDotChair here and Moda Bake Shop. The tutorial was great, but I misunderstood and didn’t have enough triangles to make two rows, so I just made one row and changed up the placement of the row for each of my daughter’s skirts.

Update on my February 12 for 2012 project – I got it finished, woohoo!
My original post laid out my goals for this year here. I’m getting there slowly, but surely!
It was a fun month to stay inside and sew. Even though I didn’t get my January project finished, I had lots of fun working on these clothing projects and seeing the children’s faces made it all the more fun. I think I may be addicted to sewing clothing and I know I have lots to learn, thankfully the internet is full of knowledgeable and sharing people. Thanks to all of you out there that make it possible for me to learn!
