mine has some way to go...
appliqué - hand or machine
foundation paper piecing
English paper piecing
traditional machine piecing - with template options to piece by hand
step down piecing
The quilt will finish at Queen size, however there will be advice on making the quilt smaller and changing the border size. I think I will work on a smaller version. There is only a sketch of the final design at the moment.
I would also like to improve my knitting this year, things have really moved on from when I learnt to knit about 40 years ago! I am joining in my first ever KAL (Knit along) to make a mystery shawl. It is hosted by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting. The design is a mystery but I do know that it will be cosy and warm and combine lace, textured cables and knitted leaves. I have the yarn already, I frogged an earlier attempt at the end of the year. It is an aran weight yarn by Artesano, a lovely mix of wool and alpaca.

I will just save the patterns for now and decide later as I really need to finish the lap quilt I am making for my son's new flat. Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville has finished releasing all the clues for this year's mystery Allietare, it is a beauty, but I am only on clue 3. I need to get a move on!
I am linking up with Freshly Pieced and Esther this week
