Back in 2010 Moose on the Porch hosted a Jelly Roll Quilt Along and I started it. I quickly fell behind and disinterested. I really didn’t like the fabric I chose. I did use jelly roll that I had in my stash. Today while looking at my project boxes trying to decide where my UFO #8 was located, my eyes fell on this project. I had cut out the five remaining blocks when my machine was in for service at the end of 2011.
I was able to whip out the last remaining blocks:
This morning before taking the kids to school, I managed to get two little tops done.
This brings my top total to 6. I need to start quilting them! I have plenty of 12.5” batting squares cut. I just need to find backing and binding for each of them.
Complete Love Letters – Month 3 – I finished one, but ran out of fabric and had to order more.
5 Arrowhead blocks – DONE. Though only 4 got photographed. Oh well.
Love Letters Month 4 – Nope – I have a mental roadblock when it comes to this quilt, I guess.
Designer Mystery Month 9 – DONE!!
2 blocks for the Super Secret Project #3 – I got one finished and started the other one. My machine really didn’t like the fabric that was given to me and was eating the fabric. I don’t have a single stitch plate for my 6600 yet – so I will probably take it with me on Saturday to the Sassy Bee and work on it since that one has a single stitch plate.
Design Super Secret Project #4 aka my guild’s annual challenge quilt – I won’t be able to post anything – even teasers – about this until May because the members will vote on this and I know some of them read my blog. DONE!! I even pulled fabrics and ordered threads to start working on it next week. It has to be appliqued so I also traced the pattern on to the back of the base block so I can back-baste applique it.
Not on the list that got done:
4 Tsunami “quilt tops”. I really am having fun with them. I also pulled fabrics for 4 more “tops”. Sunday, I worked on another quilt top and got all the units made for it. Now just to trim the units and put it together.
Blessing Block #1 from Temecula Quilt Co. This was such a cute block and quick, that I couldn’t pass up another mystery from them.
I sure don’t know where this last week went off to but I want it back!! It flew by. Before I knew it, it was Friday and I hadn’t gotten anything done on my list!
- Quilt the five tsunami quilt tops that are done. Get them ready for binding.
- Again – try to get months 3 & 4 on Love Letters done.
- Quick clean of sewing room. It is getting a bit messy.
- Work on Terrain Maze at the Sassy S & B Quilters bee
- Work on Month 1 of Merry Merry Snowmen. I ordered threads and I should be ready to start this now.
I do have to do some guild stuff this week. The kids are out of school on Friday for a little over a week since Spring Break is next week.
