31 Days of Working Through the To-Do List: Day 2

I am participating in the 31 Days writing challenge. I'm using this for accountability to help myself complete projects from my sewing to-do list and finish up Christmas gifts.

At the beginning of the year, I challenged myself to give handmade gifts for Christmas. Well I has good intentions and a schedule, but life with a toddler doesn't always help in the sewing department. Then mid-summer I found out I was pregnant and the first trimester is no fun for myself. Whenever Nora napped, mama napped too. So that really cut into my sewing time. Well I've made it to the second trimester and I have gotten my sewing mojo back.

As of today, I have finished 3 quilts for my nieces and nephews and have 3 more quilts to finish for them. But today I decided I would work on the quilt for my father-in-law. I needed a break from sewing together the same quilt pattern over and over again.

Since I'm using 8 inch squares for my plus quilt, the cutting didn't take very long at all. And the layout only took me about 30 minutes!

During naptime, I was able to sew the squares into rows and my hope is that I can press and sew the rows together tonight! So far I love how this quilt is coming together.

Happy Sewing!
