April OMG

Sooo, I didn't meet my goal last month.  I made significant progress on marking the quilt, but I didn't even get it sandwiched.  There was a confluence of events including a big work project (read: extra hours) and spring break that means

Project Quilting: Time is Up!

And JUST before Time is (Really) Up ... I bring you my version:

The final challenge for this latest season of Project Quilting (season 8, challenge 6) is "Time Is Up!"  I must say, this finish isn't at all what I started out to do ...

OMG March Goal

I had so much fun working on a new project last month!  Now I want another finish =) I really want to keep the ball rolling this year. 

Last year I pieced this Slats quilt for a friend.  Since then, it's sort-of stalled.  I have all the pieces--and have had for months.

This month I will sandwich and quilt this puppy.

OMG February--Swooning!

This month my goal was to get the scrappy panels together for my Scrappy Swoon quilt.  I got a bit carried away with sewing 4-patch strip units, and ended up with enough strips to make over 50 16-patch squares!

A Bit of Color ...

I got my act together this week and was able to throw together these little beauties for the "brighter the better" challenge over at Persimmon Dreams.  I've been saving selvages since I really started quilting about 5 years ago, and my 2 baskets are overflowing.  The perfect starting point ...

OMG February

Last month I decided to quilt along with Camille over at Thimbleblossoms and her 10th Anniversary #swoonalong.  I decided to use the Patchwork Swoon, but adapt it for my scraps.

Project Quilting--8 is great!

I've been following along with project quilting for 2 or 3 years now, but I always had other things going on and was never really able to jump in.  This time, however, the theme, was just up my alley and I felt like I could squeeze in a little something.

January OMG

I guess it's a last-minute decision to join in again.

November OMG

Right under the wire ... but here goes.  This month I want to quilt the Slats quilt that I pieced in October ... no problem, right.  We'll see ... I have to do a bunch of marking, then find a place big enough to sandwich this baby. For me this month, it will be no small feat =)
