Prioritizing Projects in 2012

Once again, I'm going to try to get more done in 2012 than I did in 2011!!!

So, my start up list is (off the top of my head):

Gifts:

2. Spot. Ready to quilt. Deadline 1/6/2012
3. Isabelle Christmas. Designed by my daughter and the front is finished. Backing is squares that need to be piecing. Deadline 1/6/2012
4. Dinosaur Quilt. Ordering fabric.
5. Repair Doll Quilt. Hmmm. Deadline 1/6/2012
6. Alphabet Quilt
7. B/W King Quilt - Ripping in progress

For me:

1. Baltimore Christmas - BOM - Deadline 1/31/2012
2. Baltimore Halloween - BOM - 1/31/2012
3. Baltimore Liberty - BOM - 1/31/2012
4. Dear Jane - BOW and TOW - 1/8/2012
5. Vintage Valentine (Feb 2012) - BOM


Other gifts to sneak in when time permits:

1. Pinwheel for Pop
2. Mod Garden Pillowcases and Shams

I just wanted these on record and will be revising/adding to as demands change. I will post about each of these projects individually with photos as I progress.

Way overloaded, but love all the projects to choose from on any given day.

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some shams...in 2017!!



I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

Getting Back to Sewing

Sorry, I've been trying to re-arrange my studio and just didn't seem to get back to sewing/quilting, but I'm forging ahead because I missed all of January's blocks of the 365 Challenge! These are really tiny and I can see I need to be much more accurate with my cutting/sewing. LOL I'm using all stash fabrics, so my dark may not be dark enough and my lights might not be light enough, but my record for finishing projects prohibited me from spending money on this one!! 
Here's February 12, 2016 block: 


Now, here's the beginning of the blue and white quilt that I'm making. I designed it in EQ7 and the rows of the top left corner have been sewn together, so we'll see how accurate EQ7 is when I go to sew the diagonal rows together.  I am using it as leaders/enders for the 365 Challenge because they took a bunch of seams so more rows are finished without realizing it. A good thing.
Just want to mention that my design wall is four 2' pieces of that foa…
