Hi Everyone!!! Happy Wednesday!
I recently mentioned a not-so-secret quilt to a friend, and it suddenly hit me how many projects I have that are ‘secret’ only because I haven’t shared them! I know there are quilters out there who can work on one project steadily, without breaking up the work flow. I am not one of those such magical creatures. Not even close. So I thought I would share a few quick snippets of what I’m working on these days. Ready?
This is a project that I affectionately refer to as the crazy cat lady quilt. I’ll share more on my thought processes behind it someday, but for now the quick blurb: This floral I’ve had since, ummm, 2012? waiting for the perfect inspiration. In a clean up, the green cat face print from Catnap fell on top of it, and as they say, the rest is history. I’m working on creating several blocks of varying sizes and will eventually join them with some improv/alternate grid work. Lots of black, chartreuse/pickle, and coral. Fun, right?
Since this summer is about sewing for me (remember?), I picked back up my Supernova blocks. Now I just need to keep the momentum going and finish it out!!! Anyone want to take bets on if it’ll happen before 2016? I think this is my most picked up and put back project to date…
I’m also working on a quilt of my own design, with the intent of either selling it, or releasing it as a free tutorial. I don’t want to give too much away, but it uses this charm pack of Persimmon I picked up during a fun day with quilty friends.
The completion of the Farmer’s Wife quilt is still on the agenda, I just have to work through an idea or two. Here’s what I’m leaning towards currently (the strip idea didn’t look great in person; the blocks got washed out).
Last but not least, I’ve been invited to join in the Fabri-Quilts New Block Hop at the end of this month!!! So now I need to design a block…
How many projects do you work on at a time? Are you like me, flitting from project to project? Or more purposed working on one project until completion?
