Tuxedo Vest Progress

 When I entered the finish of my portraits quilt on my spreadsheet, I noticed how far behind I am in my very easy goal of finishing more quilts than I start this year. As the weather is turning cooler, I know that I need to make some fast progress towards my goal.

I have pulled out my Tuxedo Vest quilt since it looked like it would be a quick finish. It took me a while to search out what I had named this quilt.  The name will change, but I haven't come up with a new name. 

It turns out that this quilt is about two years old and when I left it, I was planning on adding another column to make it a little bigger. It is a simple and easy quilt that I should have been able to finish in a day or a weekend, and here it is, still unfinished two years later.

I had hung up this top on a hanger, but I didn't put the leftover fabric with the quilt.

I put the quilt top with the African fabric I recently purchased in my bedroom because I want to keep my studio clean for Youtube videos when I decided that some of the African fabrics would really enhance this quilt top.

15 Minutes to Stitch Week 37 and 38


I am showing this chart again to show that I need to have two finishes to meet my goal. I spent most of my time thinking about what to do with the Tuxedo Vest quilt, so there isn't really anything to show for it. Until this morning, I wasn't really thrilled with any of the ideas, but I could see that I was making forward progress. It finally clicked this morning, and now I am ready to take more action on this quilt.

Love the bold colors in your Tuxedo quilt. Good luck with your goal to have more finishes than starts. You had some time before to make that happen. Congrats on all the stitching time over the last two weeks.

You're so organized, that's enviable. Tuxedo Vest is lovely and vibrant.
