Projects and More Projects!

Once again, my project list has grown. Just like fabric scraps that tend to multiply while we sleep, my list of projects must be under the same spell. Here's the run down:

1)  Irish Chain Twist QAL top:
on the frame, and quilting started. Should be finished later today.

2)  Blocks from the Cristy Fincher paperless paper piecing workshop:
a border still needs to be designed and sewn. Check out her Craftsy class of the same technique, Pain Free Foundation Piecing, (50% off right now) to learn her fantastic technique!

3)  Working on a patriotic table runner for my very first Quilt-along, beginning in May. Several sponsors, such as Missouri Star Quilt Co, Keepsake Quilting, Green Fairy Quilts, and Aurofil, are contributing great prizes. I do hope you'll join me!

4)  T-shirt quilts. A friend's sister started the project, but let it languish for more than four years. I picked up the parts this morning
and will assess them for arranging into five lap quilts. I'm inspired by the Craftsy class, The Ultimate T-shirt Quilt (which is also 50% off right now!), so we'll see what I come up with.

5)  Hubby is in need of a baby gift again, this time for a boy. There's a lot a girl quilts in my stockpile, but none for boys. Need to get on it pretty soon!

6)  A block for my Modern group, as we're making another group quilt to use up scraps. This is the last one we did (see more about it here).

I have until May 6th to get one block done!

7)  The next two blocks in the Patchwork City Westside QAL. Again, I have until May 6th.

8)  And Parkbench. I've pretty much given up, as I am not inspired at all. Can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but I've decided not to invest more time on this quilt. And I'm not even go to show what I've got so far. Sad.

9)  But hey, I got Flowers for Nana Girl,
 Flowers for Nana Girl
and Frozen, my Metro rings medallion, done! Wish I could show Frozen off right now, but you're just going to have to wait!

Is this enough?? No pressure, huh?

Have a wonderful quilty day!!

  1. I've got my block done for next month's meeting. I sort of went with the Missouri Quilt video method; I cut my colored pieces to the desired length but then trimmed down the black after sewing. It seemed to take more time at the cutting table then if I had cut the blacks to size beforehand. I'll try that next month.
    You have a sizable list of projects.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
