First up, the obvious one. If I finished Helen's quilt then poor Emily still doesn't have hers. Despite me giving it to her for Christmas there is the little matter of basting pins all through it and a great deal of hand quilting to be done. It is a priority and if it hasn't been completed in this quarter I give everyone permission to take me out and have me whipped, or take away my chocolate, or some such cruelty!
I have often bragged about being a member of Brit Bee, the most amazing group of women I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. I was Miss September in this bee. The other eleven made me glorious blocks with the Drunkard's Path block. There are 24 of them sat there now, waiting to be joined up, basted and quilted. It would be an incredible waste of such goodness to not get on with it and make the quilt!
I dug a little deeper into my box of goodies and stumbled upon 21 6.5" blocks. I love these little blocks (except one; one I hate) and really need to make some more until I have enough to make something, anything, with them. They are my Farmer's Wife Quilt-A-Long blocks. If you are a betting person then I would put your money on this being the item on my Finish-A-Long list that I make little to no headway on!
As I have started my Terrain charm square quilt I guess it now qualifies for finishing. This one will definitely get done because I am loving it so much, it isn't too big and it was my easy start up project for the new year to get me back into the swing of things. And may I thank everyone for the terrific feedback they gave me about the layout! You boosted my confidence in my slightly shaky decision making abilities.
I am pondering whether I should be adding in anything about my Favourite Fabrics Quilt, and the offspring of that idea which are the For the Birds Quilt and the Heather Ross Fan Club Quilt. At least one of these will get started shortly, and with luck finished within the three month time frame as well. Progress so far involves fabric fondling and little else.
That should be just about enough to keep me well and truly busy over the next three months, but you can add in a swap (that is being organised and shall be announced in the not too distant future), the For the Love of Solids Swap - Round Two that I have put my name down for, and a tutorial that I have promised to do for someone else. Well, quite honestly the small bit of sanity I cling to now will be well and truly gone.
Stick around over the next months. It should be amusing to watch me lose the plot!
