The end of the month is approaching rapidly, and somehow I’ve managed to get all my January deadlines met!
Madrona Road Challenge Quilt – Finished this, and I made a fairly thorough post about how the design process went for it.
Sew Sew Modern Swap – More pictures available at the blog post here. Shipped it out this morning! I get impatient at this step. I wish the mail was more instant gratification!
Handstitched Class – I’ve finished the first assignment for my Handstitched class, which is the dogwood blossom center + handstitching around it, and the three borders. My muse is rather sadistic and I had the idea to line up the two prints in the center. Because it was handstitched, it was actually a lot more forgiving than it would have been with the machine! This week we’re embroidering the white larger border, so I’ve picked out the colors for that.
Skill Builder BOM – For the Skill Builder Block of the Month, I’ve gotten the two January blocks done. I am using rainbow shot cottons with low volume prints. For the blocks that use fewer colors I’m doing a warm or cool split of the colors. It uses quilt as you go, so I need to add borders to these blocks, but I can’t decide if I’m going to do more low volume prints as the border or stick to neutral solids. Any opinions?
Basically anything that wasn’t due this month didn’t get done.
April & Kerry’s Quilt – Cutting out all the pieces is one of my goals for February.
Tote Swap – Will probably get to this after QuiltCon! (OMG QUILTCON)
A Quilt for Me – Maybe in March?
NuBees Quilt – This may end up being my February Lovely Year of Finishes goal so I’ll stop putting it off.
Linking up to the WIP Wednesday link party hosted by Lee @ Freshly Pieced! I love looking at all the great projects people are working on.
