I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record here - minimal progress on my monster spiderweb quilt, decent progress on everything else. I spent most of my sewing time this week working on other projects, yet again, but I'm hoping once I get a few more things checked off on my list, I'll be able to finish that spiderweb quilt top at long last.
3x6 Bee Blocks
Twin Beep Beep Quilts - I finished off the quilt tops and drew up the math for the backings this week. I'm hoping to finish the backs and baste and quilt both of these quilts this week. I am nothing if not ambitious!
AMH Spiderweb Quilt - This quilt is begging to be done. I hadn't done anything with it all week until yesterday, when I finally picked up my remaining white kites and paper templates, and stuck all of them together. I can now officially say I've started every single spiderweb quarter left for this quilt. Did I finish any actual blocks? Nope, I've decided to focus on finishing all the remaining quarters for now. Four quarters down, 32 more to go!
3x6 Bee Block tute - I'm working on the verbiage for the tutorial and hoping to wrap it up soon.
Goodie Bag Swap - I got some natural linen to work with on this project last week, and am now trying to select some fabrics to add to it for some extra zing. I think I've (once again) changed my mind, and I'm going to make a simple market tote, but make it fun with bright patchwork across the top of the bag.
Still collecting dust:
Single Girl quilt
Super secret project
New this week:
New quilt TBA - OK, so this isn't actually a WiP yet, it's more like a twinkling in my eye, but after seeing Megan use some of the new DS Quilts fabrics in such a gorgeous way, I'm feeling the itch to use mine as well. I did a good bit of sketching while I was sick this weekend, with these quilts in mind. There's just something about the start of the quilting process that I love so much. I'm seriously jonesing for a new quilt, but I've promised myself that I will finish that darned spiderweb quilt (or at least the quilt top!) before I start another. I'm still not decided on what I like best here, but I'm thinking about some of the following, and vaguely considering another quilt-along...
