Here we go 2016

by Julie Hirt

Instead of a New Years resolution or Word of the Year, I chose a phrase for 2016.

Get Shit Done

Doing my best to stick with it and made this little banner. I have it hanging above my sewing machine to remind me.


I save my selvages in a big glass jar on my cutting table.  After a few years it’s starting to get pretty full so I’m stitching them into 8.5″ blocks. Hoping to have enough variety for 64 blocks. I’ve always admired selvage quilts so I’m looking forward to this one.



Hope you are off to a good 2016!

  5. That’s what I like…get right to the point. Have been watching a new blog…Quiltville… on
    youtube. It’s very upbeat & will help keep you going.

  7. Yes! That needs to be my phrase of the year. I started sewing again for a “sense of completion and seeing a finished product” (well that and the fabric I can now hoard)… but the more I sew the longer my list of things I want to make gets!
