It’s been a while since I’ve done a real Works in Progress post, but I figured that I should end the year right by telling you what all I’ve really still got in progress.
First, let’s talk about the finished tops:
My king-sized Communique quilt top and backing are still hanging out at the house, waiting to go to the longarm quilter.
And then there are a couple projects you haven’t seen before. I have a cross stitch quilt top that was given to me a few years ago by my mother-in-law. Someone donated it to the church’s sewing group and she thought it would be a great project for me to learn to hand quilt on.
I just actually just started doing the quilting in the last week or so on the quilt frame my husband picked up for me last year. In my defense, the frame came in pretty bad shape and we had to send it to a friend to be cleaned up and refinished.
And finally, in the last week or so, I decided on the pattern I wanted to use to make the quilt for my brother Jeremy’s baby. The top is done, and it’s been basted. Now I just need to get the quilting done.
Then there are the quilt tops that are mid completion:
I was doing so well working on those first few sections of the double wedding ring quilt, until I got tired of having to pin so much, so it’s in a box until I get the urge to work on it again.
I’m also still in the process of creating blocks for my religiously themed Easter crazy quilt.
Then I’m collecting fabric for a few other projects:
If I ever get finished with my Easter themed crazy quilt, I’m collecting fabrics to make a spooky version to hang up on my wall for Halloween.
I have a layer cake of Lexington fabric which I hope to eventually make into a Dresden Plate quilt.
And a lovely Asian panel that I want to eventually make into an embellished wall hanging.
And after making my mom’s quilt with the Cori Dantini fabrics, I’ve been hoarding some fabric to make one of my own.
Lastly, though the pile of black fabrics is terribly boring, I’m totally going to make an 8-bit quilt with a black background soon. And hey, Season 6 of the Quilting Challenge starts next week, so maybe I can make some of these fabric piles into my projects. What do you think?
