I'm throwing down the gauntlet for June! This month I need to finally finish my son's bed quilt. It's been over a year since he finished a twin sized quilt for his sister and he's still waiting for me to finish his quilt. It's been in progress for... a long time. Fabric was cut for the project almost three years ago. Eek! The quilt top was finished pretty promptly, but it languished at the quilt top stage. (Why did I not send this one out for long arm quilting!? Actually, I know why. I was married to my plan for thread color and quilting motif. I should have been more flexible.) It's been basted for a while and quilting has begun. But free motion quilting a twin sized quilt on my domestic machine is a little daunting.

It was also my December 2017 OMG to finish it. I started the quilting with Aurifil 50wt Marrakesh Variegated #3817.

Wish me luck!

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! ;-)

Thank you for visiting!



Part of the problem with choosing one goal for the month is that I have about seven projects I'd like to finish in March. Anyone know the feeling?

Well, a package of fabric arrived yesterday for one of these projects, so surely that's a sign that it should be my One Monthly Goal.

Curated Quilts' issue 4 call for mini quilts is all about triangles and due April 1. I was drawn to the sherbet tones, not my normal palette, for this challenge. I don't have a firm plan yet of what I'll make, but the fabric is in hand. There's lots of time for you to join in on this challenge. You can see all the details and current submissions at Curated Quilts.


Here I am visiting my i Mini quilt in the Curated Quilts booth at QuiltCon (more about my trip soon!). i Mini was my submission to the Minimalist Quilt Challenge and was selected to appear in issue 3.
