Focus : Week 1

I have had some deadlines lately that I have just missed. I feel bad about it and decided that this month, I am committing to finishing up some projects.

This week’s WiP and focus projects are:

  • First priority: Sisterhood of the traveling quilts – Laura’s (@littleandlots) quilt addition…She wanted a row of blocks, that represent the rainbow.  I was pulling fabric trying to decide and all of a sudden I found that I loved Tula Pink + Alison Glass combination. It just happened I was pattern testing at the same time for Juliet @ Tartankiwi, and feel in love with the Can-can girl paper piecing template. I am almost finish – here is Miss Orange through Miss Violet…

    Only Miss Red to go, and I am hoping that she will be finished tonight (PS. there might be a giveaway on Friday to celebrate completing these).
  • Secondly: I plan to bind my Idea, Design, Create quilt to show at our Guild meeting this weekend…probably my Friday night sew along project. I got the quilt back from Sarah @ Crinkle Love who did the wonderful quilting!!IMG_4749

Planning ahead:

  • Project of the Month and my goal for ALYoF is the same as last month – my Spoonflower Sampler Quilt. I actually plan, starting next week to release a block or two patterns per week (total of 12 blocks), as I complete the quilting and binding on this project. So stay tuned every Saturday for the releases!!
  • Sisterhood of the traveling quilt: Jess’ @Quiltyhabit who wants jewel tone curves. I have the perfect start, for this project and I am re-purposing this UFO.
  • Start and complete my quilt top for our guild’s Spoonflower charity quilt challenge.
  • Lastly, is my planning and buying supply’s for my possible QuiltCon entries.

Linking up for this week’s WiP projects @Freshly Pieced WiP Wednesday  and for my monthly goal, A lovely year of finishes (see buttons on the right).

    That block for Jess’s quilt is so perfect! I love that technique! And I love the fabrics you’ve chosen for all of the can-can ladies! Very nicely dressed gals. Being so close to done with TWO quilts is pretty exciting!

    The can-can girls are really beautiful; I look forward to seeing them in their full rainbow glory. I have been thinking about QuiltCon entries, too. I feel like I don’t make things modern enough to enter, and yet I know I’ll enter several anyway… 😉

    The Can Can girls are amazing – Paper Piecing looks so difficult but I would love to produce things like that – one day I will give it a go.
