26 Projects Update – March 2012

Here is the list, again, still in no particular order. This time I have moved the finished pieces off. 22 WIPs left!

  1.  Stars for San Bruno #3: Quilted; applying binding
  2. Food Quilt: needs quilting, backing and binding.
  3. Jelly Roll Race: top cut into diamonds. Sashing being applied; diamonds being sewn together into chunks.
  4. Original Bullseye: needs border, backing, quilting and binding. Went rummaging through my fabric closet to find this top, because I was fired up to put the border on. I couldn’t find it. It is lost. I know it is in there somewhere. I am also working on my border idea and have definitely decided not to put that particular border on this quilt, if I ever find it, but I am glad I am doing the test.
  5. Corner Store: foundations cut; some blocks made, triangles pinned to foundations and ready to sew.
  6. Spin Wheel: really not started, but supplies gathered.
  7. Infinity blocks: I know where they are.
  8. A-B-C (A-Z) BAMQG Challenge – I am actually not sure if this should be considered a WIP, because I don’t really have enough blocks with which to make anything yet. I am making good progress. This month I need to make K and L blocks.
  9. Aqua-Red Sampler – steady progress has stopped and the class more than the quilt is really weighing on my mind. As far as I know Frances has still not finished her Dresden Plate. I really don’t know what am I going to do with her? The next class was going to be fusible machine applique’, but I haven’t gotten past cutting out the templates. Perhaps I should skip to machine piecing curves?
  10. The Tarts Come to Tea: I haven’t quilted on this since April 2011. I need to work on the quilting. I was making good progress and then got sidetracked.
  11. FOTY 2011: ready to go to the quilter.
  12. Flowering Snowballs: I decided not to abandon this project, partially because I am so far along and partially because I need a hand project.The templates I made for the border blocks really helped me do a vast amount of cutting in a short time last Friday. All the cutting for the border is done. One corner block made. I am on my way!
  13. Garden: decided to use this piece for my beading demo for the 2012 EBHQ Voices in cloth show (March 17). It will get me moving on that project again, too.
  14. Flower Garden: I still find the ‘flowers’ too spiky. I think I need to soften them up a bit.
  15. Moon and Stars: need to finish handquilting. This quilt is not interesting.
  16. Pointillist Palette #4
  17. See: needs satin stitching.
  18. Self Portrait
  19. Spiderweb
  20. Under the Sea: class project; like the design, but not the colors much.
  21. Flower Sugar Hexagon: sewed more hexagons together. Sewing Y seams is a bit of a chore, so I get tired of doing it after awhile.
  22. Young Man’s t-shirt quilt: have cut up the t-shirts and am in the process of applying fusible.

Finished or Abandoned:

  1. Stars for San Bruno #2: Finished! YAY!
  2. Pavers. Finished! YAY!
  3. Kissy Fish: Finished! Yay!
  4. Pineapple: Abandoned; will remake blocks at a later time with more care.
