I’ve been doing some tidying and sorting…and contemplating projects. I had so much fun working on the Crooked Courthouse Steps blocks that I really think I want another more free spirit project again….
That’s when I remembered that I started a Scrap Vortex quilt. I thought I’d go hunt and see if I could find it. I did find it but I was doing mine in Civil War prints. I was hoping for brights and it could be a quilt for one of the childcare kiddos for Christmas. Hmm.
When I was hunting I found this…Oh I remember this…I started collecting for this last fall and then completely forgot about it. I need a few more yellow shirts. Those are tougher to find. I’m in no hurry though so this one went back to the back burner.
The ruler was even in the bag.
…and here these are. I thought about making a log cabin quilt wonky like this. I think I started these when we still lived at the farm. Hmmm…resurrecting this might be fun.
I like how there are no lights in the block. That way I’d use up more scrap from the BIG bucket. I never have enough white based neutral fabric. I don’t think I want to do that much work for a gifted quilt though.
Then I found these…oh these were fun. I was in the middle of these when I had a deadline project that took me away from it. I lost the momentum and it got set aside….
Again a fun project but again…I don’t think I want to go to all that work to gift it though.
Oh what to sew next??
-I really need another quilt for a girl childcare kiddo for Christmas
-I have a wedding in November but I think I have a quilt for that
-I need to have a quilt for Kayla’s baby….She requested a crumb quilt. Well that will be a challenge as I’ve made three baby quilts in that style already, and I’m not up for making the exact same. Same style yes…but I don’t think I want one exactly the same.
I sketched this…
…I know it looks like nothing to all of you but I think it’s enough of an idea I can go with. Her baby is due in January. Being we know it’s a boy, I don’t have to delay any sewing…so I want to get that going. But it will likely wait for December.
-after that I need three graduation quilts. I have at least one or two done.
-and don’t forget the mystery quilt
Well no project screamed make me and gift me as all of them are part artsy and part quilty. Some people don’t like the artsy look…So they all went back into the vault. I’m going to pound out one more childcare quilt for Christmas and work on getting the others completely finished. Then I have to make the pillowcases for the kiddos for Christmas and after that…I think I’ll be onto Kayla’s baby quilt.
..I need a good idea for a quilt for a childcare kiddo in kindergarten or 1st grade…any suggestions?? The Crooked Courthouse steps was perfect. Oh..maybe I have something in my “kitted” cupboard. I might start digging there next.
It’s a good thing I found my way back to the sewing room or I’d be WAY behind.
