I am still so happy that I made the link-up party for the first quarter, but now its time for an update on my list!  I made strong in roads to my WIP/UFO List in the month of January.  I Have 2 pieced tops (1 has backing complete & neither have binding prepared). Next I tackled some clothing items as I wait to buy batting to finish off those quilts, no clothing projects were actually completed off my list though. Nothing is counted unless it is completely finished though so I better get working!!

Still In Process:
Christmas Advent Calendar:  Rip out all the stitching again, I ran out of thread on accident can purchase exact color. [enter in head banging against wall picture here, lol]  I wish I could steal the batting!
City Weekend Project:  Working on ripping stitches out, need to pick out joining/sashing fabric.  This is now going to be one quilt--Writing a post about it this week

Dusty Rose Quilt:   I have figured out a new pattern for this quilt; currently in 4-patch and 2-patch segments, needs some love

Dot Explosion Quilt This needs some reworking in concept.

Easy Street Mystery Quilt:  all the 4-patch blocks & Flying Geese are assembled (I am making half the blocks required for a smaller quilt ), I am currently using this as my Leaders & Enders project in between and around other projects (See Quiltville blog).
February's Scrap Challenge Project:  Partly pieced, process post coming soon
Fish Quilt:  Frustrating and hated pattern but I am trying to complete anyways.
HST Scrap Project:  Fabric Trimmed, squares set ready to sew

I'll Fly Away Quilt:  Pieces cut but this one is a long time project.  Since I am planning for this to fit our bed there with be many, many flying geese that needs to be made; I am guessing this one will take 3 months in among all the other projects.
March's Scrap Challenge Project:  Project kit ready to go with fabric cut from chosen pattern
Martinique Strip Quilt:  Need to assemble more strips.

Playdate Dress:  I had forgotten about this dress until I was organizing

Poppy Wall Hanging:  No progress for a while
Rainbow Block Quilt:    I have made this my orphan rainbow block quilt
Squares & Patches Quilt:  I have almost made a choice on the ideas you gave me! 

Summersault Patch Quilt:  Need to assemble more strips, some are sewn into two strip blocks

Two + Two Blouse:   I had forgotten about this blouse until I was organizing

Z's Birthday Dress:  Bodice is mostly completed, skirt is pinned and fitted to space, Sash is completed. 

Limbo-landed Items:
Chain Quilt:  Top is complete, back & bindings in process; in limbo until new batch of batting.
Red Eye Quilt:  Top & backing complete, & bindings are in process [POST]in limbo until new batch of batting.

Completed Items:
Coming Soon

New Items not on First Quarter List:

C2's Dress:  Bodice is Assembled, Skirt is cut, Sash is complete, waiting on measurements for length

Are you thinking of going scrappy this year?  If you have time, link up your posts each month with your own personal challenges.  Check out February post:  HERE


  1. have so much on the work schedule. Good luck with them all.

  2. Woowweeee! That is a mountain of projects. I especially like the dots galore in that one quilt and the two kid's patterns you are putting together. Best of luck and hope you get your batting soon:):)

  3. I couldn't deal with that many projects at once. I've got four on my plate right now and I have put one of those totally on the back burner for a while. It isn't surprising that you aren't making much progress. How about picking one or two and just focusing?

  4. You are incredible to be able to handle so much at once! Love that chain quilt!

  5. The chain quilt is great and the hearts so sweet. Good luck with the finish along.


I love to hear from my readers!
