Storm at Sea Quilt finished

Thank you all for your very nice and encouraging comments! You are absoluty right, just of these projects that I listed are very close to being finished but I find it so hard to just get them finished when there are so many fascinating projects to start.

Well, I am happy to say that the Storm at Sea Quilt is finally quilted and finished. This one is another bee quilt made with the help from my friends at Bee Germany as well as the fleißige Bee'nchen. 


I think I have never made a quilt entirely out of solids and while I really love this quilt, I don't think there is likely another quilt in the near future. I just have so many patterned fabric at home that needs to be sewn with first...

How are the projects on your lists coming along?

Q1 2017 FAL List

I have high hopes for 2017. For one, I would really like to finally finally finally complete the projects that have been piling up in my home and most of those are sewing related. So here is my list that I would like to complete within the next three months.

Finish the Storm at Sea quilt: only quilting left

Hexie quilt: still need a backing for this and then I can quilt it

Log Cabin Quilt: also still need a backing for this and then I can quilt it

Moving on with the Double Wedding Ring quilt since this project has been neglected for a long time

I also started on a christmas quilt some time ago and maybe I will finish it in time for christmas this year. The pattern is this tutorial from Andrea of Quiltmanufaktur and this is my fabric selection:

Finally quilting this quilt that has been sitting here for the past 3 years:

Hexie Bee Quilt

And just when I thought that I only got one quilt done in 2016, I remembered that I haven't shown this one.

My bee friends from Bee Germany and Fleißige Been'chen have all helped make these wonderful hexagons.

I just framed them in white, put them together, put on the recipient's favorite backing (red with white polkadots) and handquilted it all.

It wasn't on my list but it got done in 2016 so I am counting this as a personal win.

Also, I am so very glad that 2016 is over, this year was not one I would like to repeat. So cheers to 2017, I already like you! And not just because 2017 is a prime number and we have an extra holiday this year :)

How do you like 2017 so far?

This is what our 2017 looks like:
