Oh my gosh! I have 11 finished quilt tops waiting to be quilted. *gasp* This is clear evidence that I enjoy the piecing more than the quilting. And maybe that I have too many projects going at once.

In Q2 I completed seven projects from my list:

I also finished two mini quilts that I made with the Kindergarteners. Since a few of mine were lap quilts I didn't finish as many this quarter as last. Still, I'm very happy with nine projects in the finished column! That brings me to 25 for the first half of the year.

There are three new projects that I'm starting this month, but this clearly needs to be a "finish it up" kind of quarter. ;-) Many of these projects are workshop samples or will go into my trunk show when I lecture in the Fall and beyond. Here's the rundown. It's a long list (only 40!), but I really like to have them listed all in one place. ;-)

I participated in all six challenges for Project QUILTING in Q1, making 4 mini quilts and two bags. I also made the first of my Island Batik projects, a pair of mug rugs and and a mini quilt. I also finished seven mug rugs from my Q1 list (though they didn't get shared on the blog of linked up). I finished my Wonderlust baby quilt and my minimalism challenge for Curated Quilts. Lastly, I finally put the binding on my Midnight Mystery quilt, giving me one large finish for the quarter. That's 16 quilts in Q1!

Last quarter the list got up to a whopping 45 WIPs. With the addition of a few new projects that number has been knocked to 40 for Q2. They are arranged here by stage of the project. Stay tuned! ;-)

Five finished quilts in Q4 at my house. My kids and I each finished a quilt to submit to QuiltCon. Theirs will each hang in the show. Mine won't. ;-) I also finished my Halloween quilt, which I'm super excited to have done. The last one was some secret sewing that I'll be able to show off soon, but it wasn't on my Q4 list since it was a new project. Q4 also brought the beginning of many new projects.

Here's the exhaustive list of projects in my sewing room. I have a lot of finished quilt tops (14) and a lot of projects being in some state of being pieced (20). And 45 total WIPs. (Sorry if that makes you sweat a little.) This is a new high for me, though at least seven of them will be done this week.

They are arranged here by stage of the project. Let's not talk about how those that "just need binding" have been in that section for a while. I've marked with an asterisk (*) the highest priority items on the list. There are a few more coming up in the queue on the priority list, including five more Project Quilting challenges. (The first is listed at the very end. I have the theme and a design in mind... it's due on Sunday!) Happy sewing!
