Works in Progress

Brrr! It’s cold outside. Though, compared to some other parts of the country, Virginia is a tropical 17 degrees F! Makes me wish I had a nearly finished quilt so I could sit under it and sew on the binding. Sadly, though, none are that close to being finished. The three I have in progress are in various stages of finish:

a. Brians quilt: I still need a couple more block and then the top needs to be put together.
b. Free form robin bird quilt: top and back are finished, needs basting and quilting
c. Road Trip Quilt Along quilt: still working on FMQ

Phew. Speaking of works in progress, here’s what The List looked like last week in entirety:

1. Inventory for my Etsy shop: clutches + totes. None.

2. Six more blocks for Brian’s quilt topNone. 

3.  Finish quilting on Road Trip Quilt Along sampler. Minimal progress. I quilted a couple more blocks. It’s a long process because I”m learning to free motion quilt as I go, including watching my Leah Day Craftsy class here and there.

4.  Backing and quilting for the free form robin bird quilt. Progress. Back is finished. Needs to be quilted and bound. I’m kind of in love with the back. It is particularly special because it includes the panel with the names of all the ladies who worked on it with me. I wanted something fun, so I picked up a Kona Modern Quilts print on sale at the Fat Quarter Shop. Then I pieced a strip to imitate the print in the fabric and added the signature panel.

5.  Kelleigh’s wonkey star blocks for Bee a {Modern} SwapperSome progress. These should be pretty easy to finish up, if I just sit down and do it.

6.  Nancy Drew project for the Nancy Drew Get a Clue blog hop, using Moda’s new Nancy Drew fabric as part of the project.  Still need to actually buy the fabric. None. Must buy fabric.

I also worked on some things that weren’t on The List. I decided I needed a checkbook cover and made tutorial for that.

And I did a little bit of hand sewing on those monochromatic English paper pieced rose stars (how’s that for a description!).

Here’s The List today (didn’t change much):

1. Inventory for my Etsy shop: clutches + totes. None.

2. Six more blocks for Brian’s quilt top.

3.  Finish quilting on Road Trip Quilt Along sampler.

4.  Basting and quilting for the free form robin bird quilt.

5.  Kelleigh’s wonkey star blocks for Bee a {Modern} Swapper.

6.  Nancy Drew project for the Nancy Drew Get a Clue blog hop, using Moda’s new Nancy Drew fabric as part of the project.  Buy the fabric.
