This is my first WIP post. So here it goes...
COMPLETE!!! Even though I had to deal with a broken sewing machine and then a new sewing machine, I made it through the quilt-along. I am so happy with the finished result. There were a lot of firsts on this quilt. My first finished bed-sized quilt, my first quilt-along, my first attempt at machine quilting, my first time using a camera to help remember my plan, my first thin, all cotton batting. Ahhhh. I can breath now that it is done. Thanks again, Lee. Great job on the quilt-along and the easy-to-follow instructions.
May Block Lotto Blocks
The nine pineapple blocks for the May Block Lotto are complete. I like to get these done in the beginning of the month so that I can move on to my bigger projects.
Irish Chain Baby Quilt
My niece had a baby girl this week. I finished this Irish Chain baby quilt just in time. I just love the way the 3-D flowers made it special.
I know this seems a little odd, but I made a spreadsheet to let me know what projects and obligations I have. I am so spreadsheet oriented. When I first made the spreadsheet I had 31 planned projects. Yikes! Remember that I just started quilting in January of this year. I guess the quilt bug has bitten me and taken over my body. Some of these projects are big (full-sized quilts and quilt-alongs), and some are pretty small (Block Swap Adventure). Here's a look at some of it:
