Well, I seem to be continuing my trend of finishing one quilt per quarter. However at the rate which I start new quilts, that pace really needs to pick up. So I’m going to join the #ridiculouslylongFALlist club with Helen (Archie the Wonder Dog) and Leeanne and Jess and everyone else!
So here goes, my goals for quarter 4! This quarter I have a training program requiring several overnight stays over two weeks — you betcha, I’m already plotting what projects I should take with me. I have heard we have evening sessions–but I’m sure I’ll still have an hour or two each night to decompress (sew).
Sugar Block Club queen size quilt. Here’s an updated picture with the current status, see this link for a shot of all the blocks. I really want to get this one done.
Tumbler block picnic quilt. I bought a fleece throw to back it with; I’m not planning on using batting, just some simple stitching to keep it together and it should be great to throw in the trunk (boot) of the car and take to the park or the beach.
Joy pillow. Hey look, I got it basted! I used thread basting to allow me to hand quilt this.
And the leftover bits from my Grand Illusion quilt will make a nice pillow too. Oops, what did I do there?
Star Light, Star Dark quilt. I am putting small stars in each corner of a border to make this a twin size, I think it’ll be a lot more useful and practical at that size.
Glamp Stitchalot (2015) quilt. Realistically, I doubt I’ll finish, but let me place hand on heart here, in front of all my on-line friends, to at least progress it this quarter. Since it is a medallion, I just need to keep going, and I’m going to make it king-size (!). Why?, because we don’t actually have a quilt for our bed. My goal this quarter is to get the top to 60″ size. I have a lot of the units I will need partially made, plus there will be some applique to do during my training program.
Hmm, what else can I find in my deep, dark bin of unfinished objects? How about Allietare, Bonnie Hunter’s mystery from 2015 in a more reasonable size–this will be a floor pillow, I’ve seen people use duvets to fill pillows this size and I have a queen size duvet we never use, so it will be perfect.
And the tic tac toe blocks from my 2015 bee-mates, I’ve got an awesome print to make a large border and turn it into a twin size. Heck, maybe I’ll make a king!
This panel of triangles is from instructions provided by Rachel at Stitched in Color during the Angled on-line class two years ago–I think a tote bag.
And while I’m making tote bags, here is the panel, about 14″ square, which I made at the Creativ festival 3 years ago in a creative stitching class. I don’t want to just throw it away, but it will be fine for groceries.
And let me add my current sock project, considering it took me almost a year to get one sock done.
