I seem to need some method to keep me accountable if only for myself. With that in mind, I am publishing a monthly review to document my progress. Maybe this will make me more productive as well!
I’m happy to report progress this month.
I am currently working on:
Deck-ade The Halls (started in 2014)
No new progress
Next step: quilt & bind. (I’m still having trouble deciding how to quilt this project – I keep going back & forth between three options: a) send it to be quilted by someone on a long-arm machine; b) machine quilting it myself, though this option makes me nervous; and c) hand quilting.)
I have been busy, cleaning my quilt room. I keep finding fabric & pre-cut bundles for little projects. In an effort to make more room, I have been letting my creativity reign.
1. I found the remnants of a flannel bundle that was originally purchased for a quilt for my granddaughter. The quilt was made and gifted. Now I have leftovers! So, voila, I had enough leftover fabric to make another baby quilt. The top is made up of nine (9) wonky stars with narrow borders. The back is made up of various leftover fat quarters.
Next steps: sandwich, quilt & bind.
2. Next, I found a patriotic layer cake bundle, perfect for a picnic blanket. I used the “4 at a time” method for making half-square triangles and lay them out in a pleasing manner. They are currently sitting patiently on my sewing room floor, waiting to be put together.
Next steps: assemble, sandwich, quilt & bind.
New projects planned:
Florida Memory Quilt:
Every year while on vacation, I purchased a few fat quarters that will remind me of those vacations. I have been looking for the perfect pattern to make a memory quilt. Progress: Jelly-rolls purchased.
Next steps: I’m still looking for a few fat quarters to add to the mix of fabrics.
I also like to knit. Recently a friend asked me to make her a shawl, and I finally finished this project.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. What are you working on?
Until next time, Connie 🙂
