I made a list last December of challenges for the year 2022. Now at the end of 2022, I'm reviewing how many of those challenges I've met. I had no idea we'd be moving to a new home during 2022 which definitely had an impact on my quilting progress.
Todays post is about challenges 11 - 15.
11. Fire Island Hosta Queen - Didn't happen, maybe in 2023?
12. Goose Garden - Another one that didn't happen, again maybe in 2023?
13. Charity quilts - One of the charity quilts that was finished was the String X quilt which I showed a picture of in the last post. I had thought about keeping this quilt for our own use but changed my mind and donated the flimsy. I did finish a couple of smaller quilts here and here.
14. Flower Patch Sewalong - Yes, a quilt that actually is completely finished, quilting, binding and label!
15. Get Together quilt - While I was organizing my quilting projects for the big move, I realized I had already pieced the 9 patches needed for this quilt.
The 9 patches have now been sewn into double 9 patch blocks and I'm ready for the next step.
The Get Together quilt is the cover quilt on issue 163 of American Patchwork & quilting magazine. The idea of the title was to exchange 9 patches with friends but my 9 patches have all been sewn by me. I need to come up with a different name for my quilt, maybe 9 Patch Beauty?

When I think of your projects this year, I think of Welsh Beauty and everything else takes a step back, like a hush falls on the room when the queen enters... Goals Shmoals. You made WELSH BEAUTY. End of Story!!!Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
when I saw get together, all I saw were the crazy sashings and said nope. But your 9 patches are great and I look forward to seeing you make it
Wow I'm in love with that red, white, and blue quilt! It's FANTASTIC and I love all the cardinals! Looking forward to seeing your 9 patch quilt! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!
So many quilts - so many choices to pick the one I love the best and it is the Flower Patch Sew Along - if it had not been paper pieced I would have loved to make it! Yours is so beautiful and such bright colors that really stand out in each block. Lots of work in this one also! Hugs
I just fell down the Get Together rabbit hole. Maybe this is one I can do without too much stress. Nine patches? Piece of cake! Paper piecing? I'm a pro! Add 5 more blocks and sashing to get a rectangle? Can do! Thanks for giving me the idea!
I love how your Flower Patch turned out. I downloaded all but one of the clues and I'm hoping I'll have time to start it next year. I even bought some backing with cardinals on it so maybe I'll have to change the colors up a bit to coordinate better with it.
I love the Flower patch sewalong. It is a real beauty. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!
So many beautiful projects. It's fun checking things off the list! I'm not great at naming quilts, but the first thing I thought of that was a variation of "Get It Together" was "I Got It Together". That's all I've got. lol
Beautiful projects!! and its great to see progress on so many of them
I really like the double nine patches... pretty!!
You have to leave some projects for next year ;)) I love the name for the 9-patch quilt, and it's going to be another stunning one. A lot of flying geese to come ;)
Thank you for sharing, and linking up today!
I've enjoyed reading your last two posts providing a roundup of what you have accomplished and what is still going forward. Beautiful quilting all of it, Gretchen. A pleasure to read about.
I love nine patches :0)))
