I have been up to WAY too much, but I have a bit of a breather for a second. I actually counted that I have 8 quilts in progress right now and 3 smaller projects that I need to start, but nothing with an exact due date and most of it is for fun.
Here are the items I would like to finish in the next month:
I completed the first block for my Kite Flight Quilt. Robert Kaufman is having a quilt-along on Flickr and you can follow along at #kiteflight. If you want to join in on the fun, the free pattern is here for the 2.5″ roll-up version I am making. There is also a 1.5″ strip version to use with RK’s new skinny strips that are coming out next month and that pattern is available here.
I have all my triangles cut and I am working on piecing my blocks. I’m excited to see how this looks all together. I’m loving those big Kumiko Fujita text prints.
Next is a Superhero baby quilt I am making for a friend who is due in October. The shower is in a couple weeks, so I’d like to get it quilted by then. I am co-hosting the shower at my house, so we’ll see if I get the quilt done in time!
Lastly, I want to get this Robot quilt done by my son’s birthday. He’s turning 4, so really, if it’s not finished, he won’t care. He sleeps in a twin bed now, but all he has is his little baby quilt, so he needs a BIG boy quilt. The pattern is called “Does Not Compute” from Boo Davis’s book, “Dare To Be Square”. I’ve been collecting tone on tone and white on tone robot/outer space fabric and I’m just waiting on a bit more.
That’s it for now! I’m trying to find time to write up various free patterns and tutorials that I really want to share with all of you, so keep checking back.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
