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!

Nothing like updating the WIP list each quarter to cement what is languishing in the sewing room. Like #2 and #3 that just needed binding three months ago... and still do. Eek. To be fair, most of Q3 is summer break for my kids and I'm always overly optimistic about what I'll get done in the sewing room.

In Q3, I helped my kids each complete the end of four rounds of the Kids Quilt Round Robin, and I finished off my 100 blocks in 100 days. I completed five quilts, three of which were on our my Q3 list, samples for my Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares workshop and my Back and Forth baby quilt. Plus I designed and completed Vincent's Ear and Fall Fleurish.

Here's my comprehensive project list, categorized by stage of the project. My OMG October Goal is obviously to finish my Halloween quilt. It's quilted and trimmed. I just need to finish making the binding and get it bound. Maybe I can have "binding day" and get the binding on all three of those!
