Karefully Made

Life. Love. Quilts.


Checking things off my List!


Hey Guys!

Today has been a very productive day!  I cut all my fabric for the Star Burst Quilt Along over at Happy Quilting.  This week I am only responsible for cutting!  Thanks goodness!  Above is the picture of all the completed cutting.   Here is another picture of the grouping of the stars.  I purchased my fabric at Intrepid Threads, she had pre-made bundles for this quilt along.  I picked the bundled titled, Frosty Autumn.  I really love the colors.

This fabric will hopefully look like this:

Frosty Autumn 1

I know pretty right!  I did not choose the same grouping for my stars.  I have complete some sewing this week.  I made a Hexi Kit for my Mom.  She is also doing the Hex on the Beach kit.  It will be my Mommy time for sure!  Here are the pictures for you!


For that reason I will be linking up to Quilt Story for Fabric TuesdaysBetter Off Thread for Sew Cute Tuesdays  and Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts (this will be my finish for the week)!  If you are visiting from either site WELCOME!  Take a look around and please comment!  I love to hear from fellow quilters!  

Until Next time, Sew Pretty!

Sew….Here are my 2013 Goals


This time last year, I was just learning to sew.  I feel last year I learned so much and I am ready to really branch out in my sewing.  Be a more sociable, encourage others and of course share what I am doing.  Here are my Sewing Goals for 2013:

  1. Do some charity work.  I read a post yesterday from Charming Prints Quilting where she discussed doing charity work for The Quilts Of Valor Foundation.  After reading her post and checking out Quilts Of Valor, I have decided to start there for my charity work this year.  As a veteran myself, I feel this is something I have to do and if you have a chance I hope you take the time to check it out!
  2. Use Flicker.  I have not quite figured out how to use flicker as of yet.  I have a account and this year I am going to purpose myself to use it.
  3. Try a Tutorial.  I am great a reading tutorials but I don’t often try them.  This year, I am going to attempt six tutorials maybe even do a tutorial review, just to keep me honest!
  4. Learn how to Paper Piece.  I have already signed up for this class, but I hope to really get good at paper piecing this year.
  5. Complete all my projects.  I am enrolled in a three block of them month clubs and a sew a long.  This is my first time ever doing these things.  I know I am going to have to be purposeful to get everything done.  If you look to the right you can see everything I am doing.

Well I think that is all for this year.  I already feel like I am growing!  I want to say thank you for every blogger I follow who posted up goals.  Everyone really inspired me to set some sewing goals.  Until next time, Sew Pretty!
