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.

    Sounds like you have 2015 all sewed up! Happy New Year!

      Thanks Janine! I have a feeling that a few of my planned projects won’t get completed next year, and that ones I haven’t even thought of will end up on the list.

    You have made some lovely quilts and gorgeous tops this year, Andrea! Looking forward to seeing what is to come in 2015! Happy New Year!

      Thank you so much Lorna!

    LOVE the Impromptu Quilt, but as usual, all of your work is amazing. Maybe this year will be the year of me finishing the first quilt that I made, and possibly starting a new one?

    • Andrea on January 2, 2015 at 5:31 pm

      I certainly hope that you can get that quilt finished! Think of how nice it would be to have a homemade quilt to curl up under on the couch in your new home – especially when one of the houseful is sick. I hope Sir Twizzler is back to himself soon, and thanks so much for stopping by.

    Such a variety of quilts and so many lovely fabrics. You’ll have fun this year!

    • Andrea on January 2, 2015 at 5:28 pm

      Thanks Ann! I’m hoping that it will be a good year of sewing.
