June Deadline - No Way

Here's a photo of the 25 blocks for the Schnibbles for June. I still have to trim them, but at least all 25 are put together.

Made Some Progress

Yesterday, I had a chance to work a little while and I got the sashing done around the table runner made from Botanica. I got a couple of blocks done State Fair for June Scnibbles. I'll work a little bit more today and maybe I'll get the top done for the June deadline.

June Scnibbles -State Fair

Gosh, I just got my fabric for the June Schnibbles. it's called State Fair and I'm using American Jane fabric. I am not really getting a head start on this but I'm going to cut it up today. Totally not expecting to finish in time.

Table Runner Progress

As promised, I've decided to keep you apprised of my progress on my projects. Here's the botanica table runner. I have sewn the four corners on each of the six blocks and now I'm going to cut and trim.

Table Runner Started

In an effort to report some progress, here's a pick of the new table runner I've started for my daughter. They will be snowball blocks.

Weighted Quilt

Here's what I did for my grandson:

He has some sensory issues and I've been reading that a weighted blanket would help, so I quickly put one together in 10 hours!!!

I'm Taking the Pledge...

I, Gloria, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in the in words or be sure I’m being totally clear. I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.

Since I have finally come to grips with the fact that I only like to start quilts rather than finish them, I'm going to start consciously blogging about my starts/steps instead of punishing myself by reminding myself every day that I haven't finished anything.   I refuse to feel guilty because that truly keeps me from doing anything. So, here's a blanket apology for never getting anything completely finished!!

Here's the info on Rossie's pledge that made me realize that people enjoy hearing about the process just as much as the finished quilt.

My Bad - A New Post

So, it's been awhile since I posted--my bad. I'm sorry, life just got in the way. I've also found that I love competitive tennis, both singles and doubles and, since I don't have a tennis court in my back yard, I have to drive the 20 minutes to/from my indoor tennis club. This sucks time away from quilting. No excuses, I really need to get my priorities straight!!

I've been trying to get caught up on my quilt blog reading and I've found a ton of new projects to start!! Haven't finished anything in awhile, so why not just start new ones? Do you see anything wrong with the idea???

First, I just got a notice that I need to finish my Downy quilt, so I've centered it on the backing they provided and I'm going to quilt it today...I hope.
