Throwback Thursday

When I started this blog I wasn't sure where the journey would take me, I thought I would share what was happening at Kelly Ann's Quilting and some other fun things happening in my life. What fun
it's been to write about this, that, and the other ... so for Throwback Thursday I
will re-share the first quilt I shared on my blog and the first quilt I made...

 I remember learning how to make this quilt and how I made 20+ log cabin quilt after it until branching off to something different. Before you ask...yes I still use it. You can just catch our lab Zele in the bottom of the picture. When Zele was a puppy she nibbled a little hole in the bottom of this quilt and it's still there and no I didn't fix it, I feel it's part of the charm and has a little of Zele love in it.

So...do you remember your first quilt? 

Until Next Time

PhD 6 Project Progam

How many UFO's do you have in your sewing room? or better stashed throughout your home? Do you need some help and encouragement to get a few of them done? Well look no further...
Starting January 15, 2014 at Kelly Ann's Quilting we will be starting the PhD 6 Project Program.

Are you familiar with the term PhD? I’m not talking about a Doctor of Philosophy degree. I’m referring to those unfinished projects – Projects Half Done! Does that describe your UFO’s? The Kelly Ann’s Quilting PhD 6 Project Program will run for six months. You choose six projects that you want to finish. It can be any project, at any stage – number them 1 to 6. Send me an email (kelly@kellyannsquilting.com), bring your list into the shop or post the details on the Kelly Ann’s Facebook page with PhD in the subject line, and give me your project list, numbered and with the name of the projects. I’ll pick a number on the 15th day of the month and post it to my blog and Facebook that will be the project you work on for the month. The objective is to get you to finish some of your projects, but if you don’t finish during the month just set it aside and start working on the next project when a new number is published. The program will begin January 15th.
  • Finish your project during the month and send me a picture to post on the blog (or better yet, bring it in for show and tell!) and be entered to win a $10 Kelly Ann’s gift certificate.
  • The person with the most finishes from their registered project list at the end of six months will win a $25 Kelly Ann’s gift certificate (in the event of a tie, the winner will be drawn at random.) Several people have asked for the definition of finishedsince the goal is to get you working on those UFO’s here’s what I’ve come up with: projects that are smaller than lap size must be totally finished; lap size and larger projects will be considered finished as tops. Only the six registered projects are eligible. And projects include bags, table runners...
Now you have all the details start going through your projects and send/bring in/post the list and get ready to be handed your first number.

Until next time
Be Kind

Throwback Thursday

A new feature here on my blog...

Throwback Thursday

I was going through my UFO's and came across this unfinished piece


I posted this little quilt on my blog back in 2009 it was from a Round Robin that I had participated
in with a quilting bee. I'm excited to be adding this to my UFO list that will be finished up this year.

Do you have a UFO list for 2014? Are you ready to finish some of them up? Stay tuned for
a new program we'll be starting in store at Kelly Ann's Quilting, on our Facebook page and 
here on my blog.

Until Next Time
