I have a couple of weeks worth of W.i.P’s (work in progress) to share today.
I am determined to finish my “So Many Stars” quilt by the end of this month. I was quilting the outside border, way above the speed limit (for me), and this is what happened:
The excess backing and batting got caught underneath and was quilted into the backing. And that was the second time it happened today! So, I definitely needed to switch gears and slow down.
I finished Block #3 of The Sugar Block Club BOM. I am up caught up with that one!
Here are all three so far:
I took a class from Angela at The Granary and made a jelly roll quilt in three hours! Love the speed and the modern look! I’ll definitely be making more of these:
I have completed (and photographed) the first block of the Tyler Rose Parade BOM at The Granary. Other blocks are done, but no pictures yet.
I have almost finished one whole block of hand quilting on my Rabbits Prefer Chocolate quilt. I’m o.k. with that, actually. If I can quilt one block per month, I might have it done by next Easter!
I get to make a baby quilt for the daughter of one of my best friends from high school. I just picked out the fabric and pattern. It’s going to be a baby boy and the mom wants a green and brown color scheme. Hey, I just happen to have some green and brown fabric from a Moda collection of years ago – Lilly & Will:
This is the pattern I’m using. It’s a freebie I found in my box of patterns:
So far, so good right? Yes, until I found that I don’t have enough of the green and white swirl fabric. I’m putting this out there just in case anyone has an extra 1/2 yard lying around that they would like to
get rid of sell. Edited 3/27: I found it thanks to Susie, who left a comment and link for the fabric – thank you!
My deadline to finish the quilt is April 13th. Yikes! I have to get cracking!
I can’t believe March is almost gone and Easter is this weekend! I hope you all have a productive and fun week!
