100 day challenge

well I did say I wasn't going to join in the Finish Along this year but I've just found another challenge called the 100 day challenge being hosted by Jen over at Quilter in the Closet.


The idea is to pick three projects that you want to get done in 100 days from the beginning of January - I really want to get some quilts done for this year's Annual Show which is held in mid March - so I think this challenge might be perfect !!

My project picks are:
  • Mickey and Minnie pixel quilts (on my new project list)
I really want to do a pixilated mini quilt of both Mickey and Minnie - just need to organise the fabrics and I'll be ready to go ! I made the patterns using the V & A patchwork pattern maker available on the Victoria and Albert website. Excuse the terrible photo of paper !!

  • My Small World quilt - to be hand quilted (on my tops to be quilted list)
I'm going to do some posts about how this gorgeous little quilt came to be - I did post initially when I was about to start but have done all the sharing over on IG - I'd like to have this quilted and finished so that I can enter it into our local Show and also in the first Blogger's Quilt Festival this year in
May !

  • a made and finished present for my mum's mothers day this year !! (on my new projects list)
I've planned something from this book - its a secret !!

so do you want to join in too ?? just visit Jen at Quilter in the Closet and link up - its open for three more days !! The 100 Day Challenge Quilt/Craft Edition challenges you to complete 3 specific crafty goals in just 100 days. There will be check ins along the way before the big finale on April 15th, 2016 !


  1. I really love your small world quilt! Can't wait to see it all quilted... Hope your plans turn out well for all your finishes! Ali @arabesque-scissors xx

  2. You have some great things lined up Leanne. Mickey and Minny will be great. Your Small World quilt will Wow everyone who see it! Thanks for sharing about the 100 day challenge.

  3. Sounds like a neat challenge, Leanne, and I'm happy for YOU to be participating. All these challenges do for me is bring on feelings of anxiousness about meeting deadlines. I know nothing will happen to me if I miss them, but I don't like the pressure I feel. So, I'll just push myself, and I think I do a pretty good job of that. Your "My Small World" is charming, and I think it's wonderful that you want to quilt it by hand and enter it in a show. I've started FMQing mine, and though I may put it in a show, it won't be to have it judged. Have fun with yours. It's going to be smashing when it's finished!

  4. I love your MSW top! Good luck with your challenge!
