Well, hello again, time to see what I'm making progress on...and what's collecting dust...
String Me Along March block
do.Good.Stitches March blocks
Making progress on:
Margaret's Hope Chest Quilt - This quilt is the biggie wip at the moment. I must finish it up by the end of the month and mail it off to Kayla. Kayla will be turning 18 and her father is currently in prison. I wanted to make something that will stay with Kayla for a long time, so I'm trying to make something that's a little bit young and a little bit modern at the same time, just right for a young woman. These blocks have been super fun to work on, and I've made a good bit of progress. Just another 20 or so blocks to go...
Single Girl King Size quilt - I'm taking a break here at the moment, to work on my MHC quilt, and to try to regain some of the sanity I lost, adding all of those inner background pieces to my blocks. I've still got another 60 curves to sew, but I've done 100 so far, so I'm past the halfway point, I just need to recharge my creative batteries a little before I can pick this one back up again.
Make Mine Modern swap - I'm working on my final sketch and measurements at the moment so I can start to actually sew my big piece. I pulled some fabrics yesterday and I'm starting to get really excited about this project! I've gotten a few small things to add to my one small sewn item, a pincushion, but I don't want to give too much away!
Projects still on my plate, though I haven't touched them:
Birdie Stitches March block
Project Modern: Monochromatic Challenge - The chances of me getting to this quilt are looking slim, but I'm still hoping against hope that it works out. I've never worked monochromatically before, and I think it would be an interesting challenge to participate in.
Zilch! (for once)
