Wednesday Work in Progress

A lot of progress is being made this week...


I stipple quilted the Quilty Fun quilt. It's ready to be bound.


I also started the next quilt. This one is full of batiks.


It will be a Churn Dash quilt. The blocks measure 12-inches finished. It's coming together really quickly. After working for 6 months, I think, on Quilty Fun, it's nice to have a quick quilt. Quick gratification!

April List

I should be able to quilt up 2 quilts this month. I should finish them, right? After all, last month I did just about NOTHING! :)

First up is Quilty Fun...


Second up is Hugs & Kisses...


And I ordered up some fabric for a churn dash quilt. This one will be a quick quilt for a good friend who is out with knee replacement surgery. Chop, chop. I better get going before he's all healed up!

Sorry, no pictures. The fabric hasn't been delivered yet.

That's it for April.

For the second quarter, I hope to also finish an Aeroplane bag, a flower pillow, and my sister-in-law's chicken quilt binding. Apparently, when someone finds out you can bind by machine, they stop hand binding and just give the quilt to you to finish! The conversation went something like this, "Here. You do it. It's only been sitting for two years. I don't need it back soon." I guess my sister-in-law really hates hand binding too!

April Showers

I'm back to blogging...April Fools! Just kidding, I am back to blogging.

March began with doing taxes and finished with putting our rental house on the market. I'm so glad it's April! It feels like new beginnings, even though it seems like the winter rains just arrived in Northern California. I guess it's April showers.

In the midst of painting and scrubbing grout, I did a little sewing in March. The youngest ginger decided to start sitting on the potty all by herself. So, I made some training underwear for her.  It felt good to use up leftover PUL and bamboo terry from my cloth diaper making days. I'm procrastinating on actually beginning potty training. Ginger #2 seems ready. I, on the other hand, am not. Wish us luck in advance!


I also caught up on the Quilty Fun Sew Along. This block is a good reminder for me as I wait for the house to sell...Bee Happy!!! (And not my usual worried and doubting self.)


I hope to finish the quilt top by the end of this week. As part of ALYoF, March was an epic failure. However, I have big plans for April as my sewjo returns. I'll be finishing Quilty Fun and the Hugs & Kisses quilts.

March To Dos

March is my month to catch up on QAL blocks. I have about 5 blocks to do on the Quilty Fun QAL, 2 blocks to do on the Gypsy Wife quilt, and I'd really like to do the Star Light Star Bright QAL too.


There's no more room on my To Do list! I can't erase the one Done item because then another To Do will just take its place!


This month I hope to finish the Hugs & Kisses Quilt. The top is done. I need to make a backing, quilt, and bind. I also want to make an Aeroplane Bag too.

I'm looking forward to Spring's arrival!
