High hopes for vacation projects

I had high hopes for completing a slew of projects on this vacation. Unfortunately, they were dashed, not by the usual reasons but for running out of fabric. Can you believe that!!

Here is what I did accomplish, which definitely will put me in good stead for upcoming weeks (please excuse the photos as I did not have my usual settings or choices in the beach house we were renting).

Spoonflower Sample Quilt
This was actually the one finish I really had. I finished all 9 blocks for my Spoonflower Sample quilt. That means all my classes are prepared for the Modern Block series I am doing at Spoonflower.

Just the white sashing to add and then onto finishing the whole quilt!!

“Neighbourhood” quilt
One of the designs I liked from the first week of Quilt Design a day, the Neighborhood quilt, has been sponsored by Oakshott cottons.

Oakshott-ButtonI was actually able to make a start on it yesterday, and I am already 1/2 way through making this mini quilt (32″ x 34″). The fabric colors are amazing and I am surprised at how well it sew up without too much fraying. I totally understand the love of oakshott cotton now.

“Phased Circles” quilt
As mentioned on Wednesday, the back is almost complete but I ran out of 1 print + Kona white 2.5″ strips.

Paper Piecing Testing
I am super excited about this pattern, I am testing. It took a little while but all pieces are cut and glued….ready to start!!

It’s a wrap. That is all the progress and 1 finish I made this week. So, overall not too bad, if I do say so myself. Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.

    Your Spoonflower sample quilt looks like it was made at the beach; has that summer, fresh, fun vibe about it. Could see it being used at a beachy bon fire party, or draped over some drift wood.
