So much to do and so little time! I’m making my list and checking it off so I will try and get everything done in time.
In addition to a number of Christmas presents I need to finish, I have several other projects. First, I am Block Testing for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 7 which will be published in the Spring of 2013. Sorry, I cannot show you the blocks I’m testing until the issue is released, but I promise I will post them on my Blog when I can. I will also be making a quilt to show off a number of the blocks. More on that later.
Another project I’m working on is four Quilt Top Samples for Fabric Café. These are 3-yard Bundles and work up fast. I only have to piece the top and prepare the binding. I got one done today. All four patterns use the same HST Block (Half-Square Triangle) and single border, but they look so different. I’ll post pictures of the others as I go. The first one is the Chevron Pattern – Earthscape Kit.
Next, I will be working on a Charity Quilt for Webfabrics in Purcellville, VA. I picked up the strips for the Top at the store and pieced the top earlier. Tomorrow I will make the “Quilt Sandwich” (Top + Batting + Backing) and quilt it. After I add the binding, I need to make a trip to the store to turn it in.
Also on my list are a couple more ‘big’ items and a number of smaller items, which (due to the Holidays) I can’t share yet. I will post pictures after Christmas.
This year Thanksgiving was early, which means we have 5 Sundays before Christmas. So the 1st Advent Sunday is this weekend. Maybe we can get some of the Decorations up. But I do have a Christmas Flower Blooming!
