2013 FAL Q2

she can quilt

Alright, once more unto the breach, dear friends!  This time I am going to be a bit more gutsy and add even MORE stuff onto my list.  Who knows, maybe if there is more pressure I'll actually finish more stuff?  (I know, highly unlikely.)

Whatever.  :p  Let's begin shall we?

Project 1: New Nephew Quilt
I began this quilt top months ago.  I know, I'm awful.  My nephew is already born.  What did I expect, that these HSTs would magically put themselves together and become quilt and bound on their own?  Wishful thinking!

Project 2(+): Twin Quilts
Technically this could be 2 projects because it is 2 quilts for a set of soon to be twins.  But, in all fairness I cannot think of the quilts separately because they are clearly going to be a set!  Again, another project where I bought fabric, drew a layout, began cutting and piecing, and whoop - No Fairies have come by and finished it all up for me???  I don't want to reveal too many photos here because it will ruin the surprise but the Mom to be has already seen the fabric so I will post the strips...  Luckily the Twins aren't born yet, but it could be soon!

I cut all the pieces, did the complete layout, and then put this away while in a Studio cleaning frenzy.  And how does it go?  Out of sight, out of mind!  I better finish this while Miss V is still having a purple love affair...

Project 4: Joy, for the Queen
Who am I kidding, this is never going to happen...but what the hell I'll add it to the list anyway.  I can dream can't I?  Since this quilt is for moi I doubt I'll push it to the head of the line, but you never know.

I like them all! Get a babysitter for a weekend and sew, sew, sew. Okay, so that's probably not happening for you, either, but we can always dream, eh? Have a super day!
