January: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

2013 is here!
January is here!  

Check out the details of 2013 ~ A lovely year of finishes found here or here.

Also our flickr group there are lovely participants and some Q&A on it's own page .


As this lovely year starts I'm going to go ambitious and finish a quilt that I already have the top done, back ordered, and the binding is sitting here waiting for a quilted beauty. Crazy I know.
{You have no idea how many of these I have sitting in my sewing room *cough* 6}

Here's a photo of my unfinished beauty and I have all it's parts.  Eeeep!

Zig Zag - Layer Cake

I actually have the binding sitting and waiting.


So what are you going to finish in January?

Remember you should only choose one item.  You for sure have more going on but pick one that you'll finish. 

Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) here.

Oh and grab a button for your blog post!

**Please note, this is the same linky on both Melissa's blog and here, so no need to enter twice ***

2. $10.00 Gift Certificate from Contemporary Cloth

3. Choice of $15 or 2 charm packs from Stitch n' Giggles

4. Charm Pack donated by Shanna and Melissa

4 winners will be chosen by Mr. Random for those that post here and the wrap-up at the end of the month with a completed finish.


  1. Good luck! I'm still pondering and sorting...

  2. Beautiful! Good Luck, I can't wait to see your finished project!

  3. I love zig zag quilts with patterned fabrics! Yours is adorable! Do I see little animals and other such cuteness on those fabric? I can't wait to see it all finished up =D

  4. Your quilt is wonderful. I would like to try a zig zag this year. There are many quilt alongs being offered this month but will take 5 - 6 weeks. I had wanted to join this but just not sure yet and what can be done in a month. Today I'm doing laundry and I cleaned my floors. I have to have my house clean before I can sew. Will let you know.

  5. Fun idea! I know exactly what to pick...just need to take a pic of the half that's done and blog about it :)

  6. How interesting that it goes on both blogs. I like your top very much and look forward to seeing it finished at the end of January!

  7. I love the fun colors in your zigzag quilt. Thanks for hosting, looking forward to finishing as much as possible this year.

  8. I"m glad that I finally decided to hop on board. It will put a little bit of a bee in my bonnet this year. =)

  9. Thanks for hosting this, I'm excited it will be motivating me to focus on at least 1 thing each month.

  10. Hey! This sounds like fun. Looking forward to seeing all the lovely finished projects in a few weeks!

  11. I love finish-alongs! Thanks for hosting this! :)

  12. Thanks for reminding me to even LINK up my photo. I am slowly learning the jargon and the "do what where???" :-)

  13. Can I still link up at the middle of the month linky? With a ton of doctors appts, I missed the linky. cdahlgren at live dot com

    1. We are really sorry, but we are not going to be able to re-open the party. It wouldn't be fair to those who did link up already. We would love to have you participate and even link up at the end of the month with your finish, but for this month, you will not be eligible for prizes. The linky parties will be open every month for goal setting from the 1st to the 7th on both of our blogs.

  14. I uploaded my finish for January to the flickr group photos. I realize I am too late for the party, but as this is my first month on this blog, I am in the process of learning .
    Thank you,
