Gasp, I almost feel like I'm running out of wips! I'm sure I'll make up for it as soon as I finish off a few more of these time intensive ones, like my Margaret's Hope Chest quilt, which finally made it to my cutting table this week, and my Single Girl quilt, which is feeling a bit tedious at the moment. My design wall is getting full, with all of the Single Girl progress, my bee block, as well as some of the 3x6 Bee blocks that are starting to come in from my beehive.
Urban Home Goods swap
Prep for my bee month - Done! Fabric is in the mail and starting to get to its destined locations. I'm so excited to see what everyone thinks of doing the spiderweb blocks...
Birdie Stitches BOM - February - I actually have two finishes to show here, mine and the munchkin's. After I traced the pattern, the munchkin snatched it up and colored it with his dad. It's now hanging in my sewing room. As I was finishing this one yesterday, he once again told me that he wants this quilt to be on his bed when it's done. We'll see how much he likes it at the end of the year when it's finally done!
King Size Single Girl - I spent the weekend ironing my arcs and cutting my background fabric, thanks to a shipment from Sew Fresh Fabrics to round out my fabric for this quilt. I've started sewing the curves, and wow, it's tedious. Lots and lots of pins. And lots of patience seems to be required.
Margaret's Hope Chest quilt - I actually started cutting my fabric yesterday, desperately needing a break from the Single Girl curves madness. I did indeed decide on a pattern - square-in-squares, or drunk love. I've sketched out plans for three different blocks to keep the quilt visually interesting, and I've cut all of my fabric. I've got to get this one finished and shipped out by the end of this month, so I better get a move on!
Make Mine Modern swap - I bought the last bit of fabric for this project over the weekend (along with some other fabrics I couldn't live without (like those hot pink Echino scooters!), so I'm all set to get started on this one.
Zero progress :(
do.Good.Stitches March blocks
Project Modern monochromatic challenge - I had an idea for the monochromatic challenge last week. I spent a little bit of time sketching, and then did a digital mockup in Illustrator, and I think I'm really in love with this concept I've come up with. The deadline is 3/31, so the clock is definitely ticking, but my Margaret's Hope Chest quilt comes first at the moment, so we'll have to see if the planets align for this quilt to get done in time. I'm crossing my fingers...
Birdie Stitches March block - Corey just released the March block, which is awfully cute with a little rainbow
String Me Along March block - We're working on a drunk love block this month, and I got my fabric yesterday, so I'm all set to go on this one. It's apparently going to a month full of lots of drunk love!!
