UFO/WIP10: Marching On...

So we are two months down, with one month to go in the 2013 Finish-A-long.  I am doing another full update so this post shall be picture heavy, so please excuse the length, or well at least it shall be much longer than my usual long posts!  I AM making headway and I WILL get these projects completed eventually, even if it is not this Quarter.  I guess the biggest unknown is going to be what other unfinished projects will I find when we are able to unpack more of the boxes from our move last May??!!  I am dreading that as my list will look impossible then.  Sorry for using some old shots, I am hoping to take some new photos in a couple of weeks when things are less scattered.

Still In Process:

(Wonky) Christmas Advent Calendar:  I HAVE FOUND MATCHING THREAD!!!!! 
Dot Explosion Quilt:  I need to finish assembling rows, now going to make this one be a toddler bed/Crib Quilt sized, I was thinking Twin before, but it just wouldn't work in my brain.  
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). (Need updated picture)

Fish Quilt:  Frustrating and hated pattern but I am trying to complete anyways. Very Low on List.

I'll Fly Away Quilt:  I plan to use this one as my Leader/Enders project after the Easy Street Quilt.
March's Scrap Challenge Projects:  1 Project kit ready to go with fabric cut

Martinique Strip Quilt:  Need to assemble more strips, some are sewn into two strip blocks
Party Dress:  Close to a finish! [Project was Ziona's Birthday Dress]
Poppy Wall Hanging:  No progress for a while
Rainbow Block Quilt:   I have made this my orphan rainbow block quilt

Rose Star Quilt:   I have figured out a new pattern for this quilt; currently in 4-patch and 2-patch segments.  I plan to order some cream/off-white and some marble rose (Image) fabrics
Summersault Patch Quilt:  Need to assemble more strips, some are sewn into two strip blocks

By the way, thank you for your patience with me on repeating items I have been focusing/featuring as I have been sick and have not been up to my peak level of, well, anything to be honest.  I have been required to take a rest this next week and plan to takeoff time from any most crafting while I recover.  Plus my husband will be working on rearranging our bedroom/craft room for me!  I will post some pictures when it is complete to show you the changes we will make.

Tomorrow I will get you caught up on all the BOM blocks I was working on yesterday, so see you later!

  1. You are doing an awesome job on those projects, Shanna. I LOVE that dot explosion and those scrappy hearts.

    I can't believe we are already three months into this year.


I love to hear from my readers!
