I missed another couple of months. I sewed very little in June and May was very hit and miss, so I suppose posting the same thing over and over would be boring.
I sewed for awhile with wild abandon and it resulted in some quilt projects I delivered to the quilter, but it wasn’t that much fun. I felt confused and overwhelmed. Of course there was a lot of stuff going on in regular life, so I know all of that stuff contributed also. Still, while I like to have a couple of projects going at once they need to be at different stages and I need to be able to focus on one at a time.

I still have WIPs. Who doesn’t, after all, but the list is getting a lot smaller.
- Aqua-Red Sampler – Frances and I finished the Basket block and you can make one as well by looking at the tutorial series. Now I am tasked with doing a tutorial on partial seaming.
- The Tarts Come to Tea: I still haven’t worked on this since April 2011, though, I have been moving it around the Fabric Closet. Periodically, I think about working on it.
- Pointillist Palette #4: Fourth is a series of 6 quilts; needs tiny square patches sewn together. I still haven’t worked on this project either, but I do think about it. The Lunns have a new line of PP fabric out. I saw the new colors and didn’t feel I needed them.
- Self Portrait: started in 2006 at a class at Quilting Adventures in Richmond, Virginia. My career counselor breathed new life into this project for me. She asked a simple question and the end result was inspiration for this piece, but I kind of lost steam again after printing images on paper to try out different designs. Lately, I have been feeling like I need to finish this piece as it should be a good reminder to keep in my office.
- Under the Sea: class project; like the design, but not the colors. Still a possibility for abandonment.
Ready for Quilting
Wow! Everything on this list is new, as in it was never on the original 26 Projects list.
- Field Day Zipper; at the quilter
- Table runner: Basted; needs quilting and binding. I am planning on free motion quilting this myself for practice, which may be a challenge when my main machine is not working.
- Box Full of Letters; at the quilter
- Food Quilt #2; at the quilter
I decided that I had better put in an ‘In Process’ category. The difference, at least in my mind, between ‘In Process’ and ‘UFO’ is that I am actively working on a project and that is defined as“In Process.”
- English Paper Piecing Project– half hexies
- City Sampler/ Tale of Two Cities blocks
- Serendipity Lady Quilt
- Stepping Stones #2 using primarily Bonnie & Camille fabrics Bliss, Ruby, Vintage Modern: I made two test blocks, but wasn’t quite happy with them, so I added a number of other reds and turquoises to the variety to make the piece more scrappy. I ending up deciding against using a solid turquoise for the background.
Hunting and Gathering
- Blue Gradation Quilt: cutting 2.5″x4.5″ blue rectangles
- Blue Lemonade: cutting blue, green, purple 2″ squares
- FOTY 2014: cutting out 3″x5″ rectangles.
- Pink Gradation Quilt: cutting 2.5″x4.5″ pink rectangles
- Spin Wheel: really not started, but supplies gathered. I probably have enough fabrics and just need to decide to start.
- Stepping Stones #3 using the Macaron pre-cuts from Hoffman. I just remembered this project-to be. It isn’t started, but I have all the pre-cuts and should think about actually using them.
- Windmill quilt: Still hunting and gathering. I am cutting a variety of greys for the background,to preserve the pattern. The pieces are too oddly shaped and I don’t want to lose the pattern in a mass of scraps
What’s on your list?
