It's time to linkup with the quarter's finishing goals. After a dismal Q4 (ZERO finishes!), I'm back and ready to take on the world! I'm feeling ultra productive and focused, so here we go! #1 Barn Door Quilt Along This is my newest project and it is already a fast favorite. This is a baby quilt for my aunt and if I stick to the quilt along schedule, I'll be done around the end of February, just in time for her baby shower. #2 Picnic Quilt My oldest WIP. This is the first quilt I've … [Read more...]
Barn Door QAL – Week 1 Progress
Here's my progress for the first week of the barn door qal. It took a few tries with the seam ripper to get things lined up but I'm really liking the direction this is going. Lack of light and crummy weather makes me do crazy things... like pretend my quilt is a wall hanging. Actually, it would be a pretty cool wall hanging. I was all jazzed to work on this again tonight, but our power is out so I'm sitting in a coffee shop, drinking sugary things and checking my email way … [Read more...]
WIP Wednesday: Barn Door Quilt Along!
This week starts the Barn Door Quilt Along over at Sarah Quilts! I am so excited about this one! Here's my fabric for it. I was really inspired by the blues & greens from Sarah's selection. I am so in love with the railroad stripes but I can't decide if I should use them in the strips, for part of the top & bottom panels, or maybe just for the binding? What do you think? Here's the color mockup of what the center portion will look like: I just found out my Aunt (more … [Read more...]
2013 Quilt Scrapbook Blocks
Happy New Year all! I suppose I'm a few days late with that, but I'm gonna roll with it. I'm not usually one to make resolutions, but I do see the year ahead as being full of clarity, energy, and newness. The past year has been the hardest of my life and although this might sound kind of trite, quilting has really helped bring me though it. There were many days where I would just lock my door and retreat into a time of peaceful repetition. Meeting all of you and really starting to engage with … [Read more...]
Almost Scrumptious, Almost Finished!
This Almost Scrumptious baby quilt came together much faster than I thought! I love it when that happens. Here are a few pictures of my progress this week. I just have a small bit of the binding left to sew and this one is done! I'm hoping to take some pictures of this one with some snow... we'll see if the weather cooperates. Even though I labeled them, I sewed a few of these rows together upside down. Oops! View from the back. Still pretty scrumptious. Quilting in action! Quilt … [Read more...]
WIP Wednesday – Almost Scrumptious
It's been awhile since I've had anything to update you on! I had my first quilting related injury right before Thanksgiving. It was a freak accident!! I was walking with a bunch of projects in my hands, I tripped on a wire and my projects flew through the air while I braced my fall with the hot iron. Doesn't that sound like something from Home Alone or a terrible sitcom!? And to top it off I was sick all of last week. Totally the wrong time for this unproductive streak, I have a lot I want to do … [Read more...]
