A started a new project. Well, I started 3 new projects. Please do not call the quilt police. I still promise to finish 12 UFO's this year. This is the book..............This is the project from the book.................
Here are the 8 blocks I made so far. I am going to make the other 8 before I start stitching them. I can then sit in front on my machine like a zombie and do the blanket stitch dance. This way I can hopefully not have to change the thread colors as often.
This is the next project I started. This will be a LONG term project that I am doing with my friend, Joy. We are planning on doing one block a week. I started last week but forgot to post a picture. Here is the book.........
Here are my first two blocks. We are going to try to go in order but may stray from that idea when we get to a difficult block. Those we may want to do together. I am doing mine is blue, yellow and creme. Joy is doing hers in black and brights. I can't wait to see her first 2 blocks. (hint, hint, Joy)
The last project I started is another one I am doing with Joy. It is the "Summer nine-patch project" You do one nine patch a day until the end of summer. At the end of summer you will have 92 nine patches made. We will then get together and figure out how we are going to put them together. It will either be a gift for someone or a donation quilt for out charity group. I am using my red/white leftovers from my Insane-ish quilts. Next week I will reverse the colors.
Here are June's "Gardener's Journal" stitcheries. Now I need to get them put together. If only us Quilters could be given an extra day every week.
Here are my wonky handled "Tisket Tasket" blocks I did this week. These are not quite as wonky but you should see next weeks block, I will not disappoint. LOL!
I had this quilt kit in my closet for 2 years. I bought it to make for my cousin who lives in New Mexico. She collects Angels and I thought this would be perfect to add to her collection. Well, I am going to New Mexico next month so the rush is on to get it done. Last weekend I put it together, which was really easy. I wanted to send it out to be quilted but decided to be frugal and do it myself. I think my cousin would like it better knowing I did the whole thing myself. I bought the backing and will pin it this week and hopefully work on it the next 2 weekends. Any quilting ideas will be appreciated. HELP!!
Last but definitely not least. Look what I won from Cindy. I LOVE reproduction fabrics so these make me really happy. I plan on using 2 of the charm packs for my Dear Jane quilt that needs to come out of hiding soon. The other 2 are destined to be a Schnibble, I just need to figure out which Schibble woud work best. I pray that you all have a happy, healthy, quilty week.
