As I posted HERE, I finished only 4 of my items listed for Q2 - and interestingly enough, I finished only 4 on my list in Q1 as well .... hmmmmm, hope that's not a pattern forming there! Obviously I need to
*** Projects I'm carrying over from Q2 .....you can see pics and details on these HERE
#1 - Make two Bionic Gear Bags - I've actually made one of these, but it doesn't count since I didn't get the second one done :(
#2. Repair faulty quilting and bind Montego Bay
#3. Quilt and bind Whooooooo's Your Daddy?
#4. Quilt and bind Amish Beauties
*** New items on the list! ........
#6 Quilt and bind Flowercrackers! This is the July project from Kim Schaefer's book, Calendar Quilts
I started this quilt in June of last year hoping to have it for 4th of July, but it didn't happen. So I picked it back up last month and got it to the quilting phase earlier this week --- binding went on today and it will decorate my wall for the 4th this year - woohoo!!!!! Post to follow soon :*)
#7 Complete the August project from Kim's book, which I call Show Me the Honey. .....
This project only has the applique pieces traced onto fusible and the background squares cut. Lots of work yet before this one is done!
#8 Bind Romancing the Paisleys - this was one of my first ever Mystery Quilts and might give you a fair idea of why I no longer participate in mysteries!
If you visit my blog often, then you know that I don't do soft and romantic. I do like the fabrics in this quilt - aqua and paisleys are favorites of course - I just don't care for the way it all comes together .... it's just blah!!! My total lack of love for this quilt is probably why it's been lounging around on a shelf in my studio just waiting to be bound since I quilted it in 2012. Sheesh!!! Time to get it outta here!
#9 Do something - not sure what yet - with these 3 orphan Heart Blocks! I do have an idea but we'll see if it pans out before I share it :*)
So I think that will be enough to keep me focused and moving the old dinosaur projects out of my studio! I've realized lately that having these older projects sitting around mocking me is like dynamite to my mojo. I'm really glad to have the Finish-Along initiative to encourage me to continue getting them out of my hair. What do you use to help you move those quilts from start to finish?
Wishing you all a lovely July !!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
