26 Projects Update

I got a bug in my ear to update this list. I don’t think I have made much progress, but I wanted you to know that it is still on my mind.

Here is the list, again, still in no particular order. This time I have some annotations and I am crossing things off that are well in hand:

  1. Stars for San Bruno #2: Finished! YAY!
  2. Stars for San Bruno #3: Ready to be taken to the quilter. I am thinking of trying another quilter. Needs quilting, backing and binding.
  3. Pavers. Finished! YAY!
  4. Food Quilt: needs quilting, backing and binding.
  5. Jelly Roll Race: I decided I would cut this up into diamonds, put a border around each diamond and sew the diamonds back together again. I don’t know what the ultimate purpose will be, but I am pleased with that idea.
  6. Original Bullseye: needs border, backing, quilting and binding. Went rummaging through my fabric closet to find this top, because I was fired up to put the border on. I couldn’t find it. It is lost. I know it is in there somewhere. I am also working on my border idea and have definitely decided not to put that particular border on this quilt, if I ever find it, but I am glad I am doing the test.
  7. Corner Store: foundations cut; blocks not made
  8. Spin Wheel: really not started, but supplies gathered.
  9. Infinity blocks: I know where they are.
  10. A-B-C (A-Z) BAMQG Challenge – I am actually not sure if this should be considered a WIP, because I don’t really have enough blocks with which to make anything yet. I am making good progress. This month I need to make K and L blocks.
  11. Aqua-Red Sampler – steady progress has stopped and the class more than the quilt is really weighing on my mind. As far as I know Frances has still not finished her Dresden Plate. I really don’t know what am I going to do with her? The next class was going to be fusible machine applique’, but I haven’t gotten past cutting out the templates. Perhaps I should skip to machine piecing curves?
  12. The Tarts Come to Tea: I haven’t quilted on this since April 2011. I need to work on the quilting. I was making good progress and then got sidetracked.
  13. Kissy Fish: Finished! Yay!
  14. FOTY 2011: piecing nearly complete.
  15. Flowering Snowballs: I decided not to abandon this project, partially because I am so far along and partially because I need a hand project. I made the templates I need for the border blocks and am ready to start cutting fabric for the borders.
  16. Garden
  17. Flower Garden
  18. Moon and Stars: need to finish handquilting. This quilt is not interesting.
  19. Pointillist Palette #4
  20. See: needs satin stitching.
  21. Self Portrait
  22. Spiderweb
  23. Under the Sea: class project; like the design, but not the colors much.
  24. Pineapple: Abandoned; will remake blocks at a later time with more care.
  25. Flower Sugar Hexagon: sewed more hexagons together. Sewing Y seams is a bit of a chore, so I get tired of doing it after awhile.
  26. Young Man’s t-shirt quilt: have cut up the t-shirts and am in the process of applying fusible.

Here is new categorization:

Well in Hand or Complete:

  • Stars for San Bruno #2: Finished! YAY!
  • Stars for San Bruno #3: Ready to be taken to the quilter. Needs quilting, backing and binding.
  • Pavers. Finished! YAY!
  • Food Quilt: needs quilting, backing and binding.
  • Kissy Fish: Finished! Yay!
  • Pineapple: Abandoned; will remake blocks at a later time with more care.

Have a Plan:

  • Flower Sugar Hexagon
  • Young Man’s t-shirt quilt: have cut up the t-shirts and am in the process of applying fusible.
  • Pointillist Palette #4
  • See: needs satin stitching.
  • Original Bullseye: needs border, backing, quilting and binding
  • FOTY 2011: piecing nearly complete.
  • Pointillist Palette #4

Hunting & Gathering Stage:

  • Corner Store: foundations cut; blocks not made
  • Spin Wheel: really not started, but supplies gathered.

Steady Progress:

Not a Clue or I Have Lost Momentum:

  • The Tarts Come to Tea: I haven’t quilted on this since April. I need to work on the quilting. I was making good progress and then got sidetracked. I think I do have a clue; am just not inspired.
  • Garden
  • Flower Garden
  • Moon and Stars: need to finish handquilting. This quilt is not interesting.
  • Self Portrait
  • Spiderweb – I know I want to put a self bordering border on this quilt, but just can’t seem to get it done. I think I may need to make two quilts, because I have way more blocks than I need for a bed sized quilt.
  • Under the Sea: class project; like the design, but not the colors much.

Abandoned:

  • Pineapple

I am going to remove the finished items from the list for the next update. I will still call it 26 projects, but I want to see the list shrink and that seems like a good way to do it.

    I have a friend in San Mateo who is very pleased with her quilter. I will ask her for the contact info for you, if you like.
