Or perhaps we should call it a meeting of Startitus-Anonymous. Like many of you, I have been guilty of starting too many projects, lured by the pretty fabric and fun Linky parties. So on my to-do list for this year is finishing up some current projects.
Let me start by stating I have fallen slightly off track (of my no quilt-along pledge) by signing up for the next fabric challenge with the Modern Quilt Guild. I have a good stash of Violet Craft prints from Michael Miller, so I think I will add some of those. I am currently thinking of making a baby quilt with lots of negative space to practice free-motion quilting. I like the idea of using these challenges to expand my skill set as a sewist and quilter. I have started a Pinterest board–Do you have any suggestions for easy piecing patterns?
Secondly I did manage to finish my Massive tote on time for the previous MQG challenge, which I have realized is one of my finish-a-long for Q1 of 2014. Just for fun, I persuaded my daughter to climb in.
Thirdly, and on my to-do list for this week, is the Easy Street quilt top (go here to see some finished examples). I have finished the B blocks (6), and need to make 7 more A blocks (of 12), and 6 more setting triangles (of 10). I would like to get these blocks done this week, unfortunately I realized I need another 50 four-patches first, although I have most of the other units done.
I started following another MQG individual member this week, and Christine at Red’s Needles and Thread is starting a fun Linky called To-do Tuesday, so I am linking to that as well as Fabric Tuesday with Quilt Story.
See you at the linky parties!
