Quilty things in *active* progress:
1.) The bunny quilt! It's coming along fabulously...but I've come to a standstill at the trimming and binding. I want to practice on a few others first.
2.) The colorful baby quilt. I could say this is one of my first quilts ever. It's definitely the first quilt I tried to quilt on machine. I hit some serious snags (see here), but thanks to the encouragement of UFO Sunday at The Free Motion Quilting Project, it's up and going again. It just needs quilting around the purple squares. THEN, I'll use it to practice binding.
|Flowing lines quilting...I'm in LOVE!|
3.) A charity quilt with an upcoming deadline. Link up for 100 Quilts for Kids is looming on October 15! I guess I should finish this one up quick! Machine binding for this one!
Quilty things waiting in the wings: (fabric is in some stage of prep or the top is in progress)
1.) Another charity quilt...teen wonky log cabin. Love this one, but I guess it's waiting for next year.
2.) Giant Granny Panties quilt in pinks. Fabric is washed, starched, and cut. Ready to sew the top as soon as I cut the off-white for the border.
3.) Square root of nine quilt. It will make a great baby quilt, but the cutting is so precise that I burned out part way through.
|Lots of tiny pieces|
|Needs to look like the above, only that was 4 fat quarters and there's 8 to go!|
4.) A fun scrappy colorful quilt (I really should come up with better names for my quilts). Needs strips to be sewn together and the top is finished!
5.) The owl quilt. A few more squares need machine applique then it's ready to be pieced together. So cute, but I keep getting bored with the applique.
6.) A t-shirt quilt. The shirts are prepped with interfacing and I bought fabric for sashing this past weekend!
7.) Quilt-as-you-go squares from the FMQ Project...lots of time to accumulate more of these.
8.) Quilted squares with animals and echo quilting. Three done and hanging in class; three to go! (and yes, two that I'm not planning to finish any time soon...I admit it...no room to hang them)
***Oh my, I'm good at starting projects! And I've only been doing this for a year!***
Quilts for the future (Fabric is purchased and waiting)
1.) A Christmas Sampler quilt
2.) Pink and yellow baby quilt
3.) Modern quilt in teals and oranges
I'd love to make a purple and green quilt with City Block by Kitty Yoshida for Benartex.
A traditional green and red applique quilt in four blocks.
Now that the list is out there in the world, I feel a bit ashamed. Anyone else successfully winnow down a list like this? How do you stay true to projects with no deadline?
Also...suggestions to name the poor quilts with really
sad uncreative names?
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday and the Free Motion Quilt Along! Love these two groups! Their participants give me so much inspiration (I'd blame them for the deluge of unfinished quilts that they helped inspire...but I know it's not their fault.)
