WIP Wednesday

The only project I managed to work on this week was my Lone Star Quilt for my MQG challenge.  I just have to bind it, but I’m not going to show the entire quilt until after the meeting on Monday.  I’m hoping to get a tutorial up soon after that.  I never knew a Lone Star could be so easy!

Here is a sneak peak with the quilting:

I have been busy catching up on my blog entries and I finally sat down and made a list of every project I have in the works.  I was a little shocked when I had 12 items on the list!  Uh, Gemini, anyone?

Here are a few:

1. Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee blocks using the “Bedtime Stories’ block tutorial from Fat Quarterly.

2. Denyse Schmidt “Single Girl” Quilt using “Katie Jump Rope” fabric and Essex Linen in Natural.

I REALLY need to finish this one someday, because I took a year collecting that Katie Jump Rope fabric and then cut it all up!

3. I-Spy Quilt

I made about 20 or so blocks and never got any further.  It was supposed to be a picnic quilt for Liam, but I think I may finish up what I have and either gift it to the next baby that is born, or give it to charity.

4. Wonky House Quilt

I’m really excited about this one.  The ladies from “Bee Happy” made  these blocks for me and I think my kids are going to love it.  I certainly do! I adore all the fussy cutting.

5. Christmas Tree Skirt using pattern from Fat Quarterly.

I started this one LAST December and never finished.  I WILL get it done by December 25th!

6. String Quilt Blocks

I haven’t touched these since the day I gave birth to my almost 3 year-old son.  I have 24 7″ blocks.  I may sash them and also give it to charity.

Also on my list:

7.Bee Blocks! (those are #1 after the MQG Challenge quilt)

8. Quilt for Yolanda’s grandchild.  She is sending my a Jelly Roll, so I may use Jay Bird Quilt’s “Unwind” pattern.  I was given the pattern as a gift (Thanks, Alison!) and I am eager to make it.

9. Fab Little Quilt Swap :  we just got our partners!

10. Geese In the Forest Quilt: Still hand-quilting it.  That’s going to take me a LONG time.

11. Quilt using Jeni Baker’s Fat Quarter Shop Bundle. This is a surprise for someone.

12. Tutorial for Lily’s Quilts.  Stay tuned for that!

Only a couple projects have an actual due date.  What kind of quilter would I be, though, if I wasn’t working on a dozen things at a time!

  3. Oh, wow, I’m in love with everything you are working on! Those vintage sheet blocks are gorgeous! I recently picked up some fabric at a thrift store, and I’m looking to get some more to make a vintagey quilt. I am signing up to follow – so much good stuff you have going on here! 🙂

  4. holy smokes you’ve got a lot going on! loving the vintage sheet stuff. and you NEED to get that single girl quilt done, it would be such a shame to leave all those pieces untouched, lol! i’m also getting wonky houses in a bee, how fun! great stuff, all of it 😀

  5. Hi Janice, I found your comment on Chrissie’s blog and came here to check you out 🙂 You have some gorgeous WIP-s here! I saw that you were looking for film editing theme fabrics, just wanted to let you know that I found the ticket one and a kind that has film rolls on it at Hancocks of Paducah website ON SALE. They’re mostly $1.99-$2.49 per half yard which is a pretty good price! Hope it helps with your search!

  6. Wow! What great projects you are working on. Love the bright, happy, clear colors. The quilting on your lone star is lovely. It will be fun to see the whole project! That tree skirt is so adorable and the I spy blocks are just too cute. Have fun with your projects!

  7. I’ve had plans for the last year a half or so to make that same tree skirt. Maybe seeing your WIP tree skirt will be the motivation I need to start cutting wonky houses for it! Thanks for the post
