I started this list as reminder of everything I had started or wanted to make, but also to show how much I had a accomplished. I need to remind myself of this fact as I embark on another finishing jag. I may have a lot to do, but I have also accomplished a lot.
Finishing Pies & Points put me back in the black on Fabric usage. After buying background fabric for The Pantone Project, I was in the red. I have finished couple of quilts and am happy to be more into the black for Fabric Usage. Gross usage is 78.75 yards, but new fabric in is 67.50 yards, which means I am only 11 yards in the black.

In Process or To Make
The ‘In Process’ is used to denote projects on which I am actively working or are on the design wall waiting for me to stitch. I am continuing to try not to put away projects. I find putting a project away ensures I never work on them, because I just lose steam.
- The circle quilt is on the design wall waiting for what comes next. Really it is just three circles that may go into the BAM orphan block pile or become a quilt.
- I have my Orange You Glad blocks back, they are trimmed, cut into quarters and I need to send them off to Friend Julie and Adrienne.
Most of my progress involves thinking or just cutting. I don’t have a bag in process at the moment.
- Ultimate Project Organizer – another project from the Crafty Gemini Organizer Club, also on my list, but not yet started
- Retreat Organizer – another project from the Crafty Gemini Organizer Club, also on my list, but not yet started. Recently, I saw one of these made up and I am not so nervous about it
- Rose Petrillo bag – I found the pieces for this bag cut out, but not sewn.
- Superbloom tote using Hindsight fabric – not started
- Westchester shirt – this is a Crafty Gemini pattern. I bought the fabric at PIQF in 2018. I have the pattern pieces cut out and ready to sew. I was held up by the supply list which wanted a Jersey needle. SIL #2. I have finally given up on doing this shirt on my own. Mary C is going to look a her calendar, let me come over and hold my hand while I finish it.
I decided that some of my projects are in a different class because they are hand piecing or embroidery or beading. They take longer. Thus I created a new category and have moved some projects here.
- English Paper Piecing Project– half hexies – I worked on this project again while I was waiting for La Pass Month 11 to arrive. I need to lay it out and figure out the bottom so I can put the border pieces on
- La Passacaglia – I am up to date on this project and waiting for Month 13 to arrive.
Ready for Quilting
- Nothing at the moment
In the Quilting Process
- The Tarts come to Tea – I am working diligently on getting this quilted. I am sick of looking at it.
- BAMQG IRR
- Pies & Points
- Diagonal Nine Patch
In the Finishing Process
- Nothing at the moment
I still have UFOs. Who doesn’t, after all? A project in the ‘UFO’ category means I am stalled. A nicer way of saying UFO is a WIP. The list is a lot shorter and the projects are newer, for the most part.
I am annoyed that some of these are still WIPs. I just need to work on them!
- Handbag Sampler – this is still the forgotten project. It should be on the UFO list. The blocks were teaching samples when I taught a sampler class some time before I started writing the quilt class sampler tutorials. I found one block recently, but otherwise I don’t actually know exactly where the blocks are hiding. I crawled up in the far reaches of my fabric closet to see if I could find them and they weren’t where I thought. I am sort of mystified as to where they could be. I haven’t even found a picture of all the blocks. WTH?
- Lobster – I still want to make this into a tablerunner for the buffet. I think that will be a good and fun use of the piece even if the colors aren’t quite right for the dining room.
- Pointillist Palette #4: Fourth is a series of 6 quilts; needs tiny square patches sewn together. No progress.
- Self Portrait: started in 2006 at a class at Quilting Adventures in Richmond, Virginia. After a brief burst of inspiration, I am stalled on this again. As one of my oldest (I am pretty sure) UFOs, I put it on my blog and out into the Twitterverse and Diane suggested that I not consider this as a self portrait. I think that strategy is a great idea. I am now trying to think of a new persona for her.
- Serendipity Lady – I am still planning to take this piece to be framed. It might need a bit of quilting first.
- Who Am I? – This piece is still languishing. Perhaps having a larger design wall will help me regain momentum. The amount of satin stitching I was facing was a problem until I thought of BIAS TAPE. I am going to make the words with bias tape, perhaps different widths, then I won’t have to satin stitch everything. Red Scribbles and Friend Julie helped me come up with this solution. Now I just have to do it!
