26 Projects April Update

Here is the list, again, still in no particular order. This time I have moved the finished pieces off. 23 WIPs left! I had to add two more projects to the list. I can’t believe I forgot about the Stepping Stones. Also, I have a Super Secret project that I did, but it took me such a short time that I don’t know if it really counts.

  1. Food Quilt: at the quilter, needs binding.
  2. Jelly Roll Race: at the quilter. Needs binding, quilting, sleeve.
  3. 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.
  4. Corner Store: foundations cut; some blocks made, triangles pinned to foundations and ready to sew.
  5. Spin Wheel: really not started, but supplies gathered.
  6. Infinity blocks: I know where they are.
  7. 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. In April, I need to make O and P blocks.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. FOTY 2011: at the quilter, needs binding.
  11. Flowering Snowballs: I have several parts of several border blocks done. I am doing them assembly line fashion, so there will be a lot of borders blocks all done at about the same time. The hand piecing is going very fast, but it usurping work on the Stars for San Bruno #3 binding.
  12. Garden: used this piece for my beading demo for the 2012 EBHQ Voices in Cloth show (March 17), which means that I added some beads. It needs some machine quilting.
  13. Flower Garden: I still find the ‘flowers’ too spiky. I think I need to soften them up a bit.
  14. Moon and Stars: need to finish handquilting. This quilt is not interesting.
  15. Pointillist Palette #4: needs tiny square patches sewn together.
  16. See: needs satin stitching.
  17. Self Portrait
  18. Spiderweb
  19. Under the Sea: class project; like the design, but not the colors much.
  20. 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.
  21. Young Man’s t-shirt quilt: have cut up the t-shirts and am in the process of applying fusible.
  22. Stepping Stones: at the quilter, needs binding.
  23. New: Super Secret Project: top, back and binding made. Ready to go to the quilter. Stayed tuned. πŸ˜‰
