I am a little bit between projects….or maybe it’s just that I haven’t picked a project to be on the front burner. I recently completed the Wonky Wishes quilt top and then I SQUEEZED in a baby quilt that I showed yesterday.
I have Star Struck started. That’s on the kitchen island. In between life moments I’ve been trimming the bonus triangles off. I’m not super serious about that project…it’s just a time filler project.
I am also working on Rick Rack Nines. That has been my leader and ender project. I have a 2″ bucket of scraps near the sewing machine. I’ve been sewing them into sets of three while I’ve working on other projects. I have a LONG way to go on this quilt. It’s one of those projects that will get worked on just a bit at a time.I love working on these kind of projects. It never really even feels like I worked on them and then suddenly, I have a completed project.
Right now I moved it downstairs. This week over nap time I’ll be cutting the strip sets that I have down into segments. The quilt needs lots and lots of nine patches. I did decided that I am using a variety of different prints for the background. In my stash of fabric I don’t have big quantities of fabric. I have lots of half yards cuts but not many 3 yard cuts….so by using what I have and mixing the background fabrics I can make a fun looking quilt and use what I have.
On the way to church I mention to Hubby and I really should shift gears and put these projects away retiring them into UFO status. We have several weddings this summer. So far, I think there are FIVE! I usually make a quilt for wedding presents. Five is really lot to make. Hubby insists that I don’t need to make five quilts….we’ll see. If the weddings are spaced out pretty good, I should be able to do it. We’ll see what life brings me between now and then. In the meantime, I better at least start on a couple.
So…I’ve been thinking about quilt patterns trying to decide what I should make…or decide if a couple of the quilt tops I already have made might be converted from my quilts to gift quilts….we’ll see.
Today we’re hooking up Patchwork Times.
