So we are at the mid-way point for the first quarter and I am getting excited about the number of finishes on my list! I made strong in roads to my WIP/UFO List last month but no complete finishes. Now we are well into February and I have 2 pieced tops (1 have backing & 0 have binding prepared). Next I tackled some clothing items as I wait to buy batting to finish off those quilts, 2 clothing projects were completed off my list. Now we are getting into some of the trouble areas on my list. Either conceptually or some other issue it seems. I continue to use the Easy Street Mystery Quilt as my "Leaders/ Enders" project in between and around other projects which makes it feel less daunting.
|I promise a better Picture next time!|
On the Friday Night Sew-in on Thursday I finally sat down and took the time to get the 4 patch & Squares Quilt blocks trimmed and ready to sew together! This Project is really getting exciting because the colors have just turned out super so far. Take a look:
Still In Process:
Christmas Advent Calendar: I have an idea...besides throwing out the window of a moving vehicle...I am just going to use another thread that purposely doesn't match the first thread. I have to think more about this before committing. I really, really don't want to rip out this thread for the 2nd time.
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, I almost have this one figured out.
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, My Focus this week
Fish Quilt: Frustrating and hated pattern but I am trying to complete anyways.
I'll Fly Away Quilt: No Progress yet. I plan to use this one as my Leader/Enders project after the Easy Street Quilt.
March's Scrap Challenge Project: Project kit ready to go with fabric cut from chosen pattern
Martinique Strip Quilt: Need to assemble more strips, some are sewn into two strip blocks
Party Dress: Close to a finish! [AKA Ziona's Birthday Dress]
Poppy Wall Hanging: No progress for a while
Squares & Patches Quilt: Squares are trimmed up ready to assemble!
Summersault Patch Quilt: Need to assemble more strips, some are sewn into two strip blocks

New Items not on First Quarter List:

Completed Items not on First Quarter List:Now that we are back from a nice family luncheon I am off for a quick nap, but tomorrow I shall get going again!
