PHD in 2019 – May Report

Oh – I almost forgot to write the PHD in 2019 report.

Here’s the January Report for Participants

Kate @  Life in Pieces  has started 2 projects that she plans to complete by year’s end!  One is a Storm at Sea (something I’ve never made) and the other is her Daisy Chain Mystery quilt – sew pretty!!!  I really like the pattern!

Tish  @ Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland doesn’t seem to have any UFOs finished, but she has a lovely heart quilt …. it’s worth going to take a look!

Emily @ The Darling Dogwood   has made a pretty awesome I spy quilt for a new baby!  She made a similar one for the baby’s sibling – so that should be fun!!!  Make sure you check out her cool I spy quilts!

Deana @ Dream Worthy Quilts has a goal tracker on the right side bar. According to the tracker (which may not be up to date), there hasn’t been any recent UFO finishes.  However, she has made a pretty neat bag. Check it out HERE.  I love how she didn’t purchase the hardware, but re-purposed it from other bags.  I’ll have to keep that in mind!

Elizabeth @ Applique and … has a lot going on in her life and sewing is happening in little bits.

Sharon @ Adventures in Fiber has not posted any quilty posts lately … but she has been busy with lambs!  Soooo cute!

A FUN Youtube video

I know that I often use quilting acronyms and I hopefully explain them.  This video explains a LOT of different ones!  SEW Fun.  It’s well worth the time to watch it.

Fractured Paint Brush.

I made the label and I just have the borders to quilt … and the binding to do … then you’ll see it in all it’s glory!

  1. Power to you, Gail, keeping everyone on track with their PhDs. I’m still picking away at mine from 2018. I’ve found that after last year spent working my way through the backlog, I’m disinclined to leave any new projects unfinished. Thanks for that. I, too, have a baby quilt in need of finishing. Perhaps a baby quilt marathon would be a good idea.

    • Hi Ann!

      I’m glad that working on your PhD in 2018 is helping you to keep on track! That’s the goal!!!
      A baby quilt marathon will happen! It’s such a great idea! Just need to figure out the details! 🙂

      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. You’re making good progress! This PhD is a really a great motivator. Sometimes I think, ah, should I start a new project anyway and if I don’t think I can finish it, I decide I don’t want to try. I don’t want to let you down!
