I've been trying to make an effort to actually finish projects but it's just so hard! Hopefully posting this each week will help keep me motivated to actually finish a quilt.
· Stack n' Whack- My first quilt top! Well unless you count the one I made in grade school for a pioneer project... I used this tutorial, and an assortment of fabrics from Joann's (I know I know, I was just too nervous to buy the nice stuff). I've had the top done for ages and had it basted but I decided a few weeks ago that I hated the back I was using and finally pieced the new back last night. Hopefully I can at least baste and quilt it this weekend.
· Coming Home- From Camille's book, Simplify, except that I changed the layout a bit and used all Christmas fabrics. We have the perfect spot in our dining room to hang it this holiday season. I've pieced, quilted and machine sewed the binding; all that's left is the hand sewing. I finally bought the right color thread and found a tutorial to stitch it nicely, I just have to sit down and do it.
· Jellybean- Another Camille Roskelley pattern, Jellybean is being made for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I got about half of the strips cut and sewn together. Hopefully this week I can cut the rest as well as the white squares.
· Subversive Cross-stitch- Still plugging away on this from yesterday. I got another snowflake done tonight while babysitting and am going to pick it back up momentarily.
Hopefully this week coming up can be a productive one!
