I've been working away.  It is so wonderfully nice to feel better again, so I've been getting stuff done.  I had a unrealistic goal of not adding to the list this year, but that didn't happen.  However, I've also managed to get a lot done and the list has gotten shorter!  I had 22 items in FebruaryThe list went down to 14 and then up to 16, but that's a lot shorter than it's been in a long time!

1. T-shirt quilt.  I've gotten the middle together and am just working on the borders now.

2. Quilt a doll quilt This shouldn't take much time, I just need to do it sometime.

3. Aunt's throw.   I have them in four patches and just need to continue to sew them together.

4. Baby quilt - urban cabins I was so close to finishing and ran out of blue.  Then I decided it was more of a boy quilt than a girl quilt.  (I had been hoping the navy would act as a neutral but might not be dark enough.)  So I got fabric but now it is just sitting again as there is no person to give it to at this point.

5. Quilt nautical quilt  All ready just needs to be quilted

6. Quilt Christmas quilt  All ready just needs to be quilted. :)

7. Pillow for family room.  I ran out of scraps before it was big enough for the pillow.  So now I either need to make scraps which seems ridiculous or wait until I use the fabrics again or something.  It's been a leader-ender project that I periodically plug away at.

8. make the wall hanging for office.  I won this bundle a (long) while ago but since it's for me it doesn't always get priority.  The purple matches the office perfectly though, so I still want to get it done.

9. Simply solids bee quilt.  I still love this layout and want to get it finished, but since I only sort of have an idea of whom to give it to it has stayed on the back burner.

10. {pretend to} work on scrap quilt.  I actually worked on this a little bit!  It was fairly mindless.  I don't have many red scraps, but they're now all in a roll and I'm working on orange.  The final layout keeps changing, but I figure I'll make something work with whatever I have done.

11. Orphan rocket block  This would probably take less than an hour to finish, but I have no real motivation to work on it.

12. Jeweled floors.  I have some of the fabric for this, but it's been put on the back burner
13. Lost piece (almost whole cloth quilt).  I've thought about this a lot but haven't done anything.
14. Winter quilt.  I have all the fabric and an idea on the layout.
15. Wedding quilt.  I've e-mailed to the bride but haven't heard anything back.
16. Space robot quilt.  My son moved to a twin bed and I realized that he needs a new quilt for it.  I was looking through a fabric catalogue (usually not a dangerous thing) and noticed some robots.  He loves robots and, upon closer look, there were also space ships/planets/stars.  The decor in his room is space and robots, so I purchased the fabric.  I think I have a plan now but need to figure out the details.
(One of the things i love about this hobby is that I can wash the quilts.  So if fabric gets walked on, it really isn't a big deal.)


  1. Some great finishes and a lot in progress, you go girl!! Glad you are feeling better!

  2. Love the Urban Cabin concept! And execution.
