Cherie, Cherie….

This week, I am trying to be super diligent in focusing on only two projects:

  • Cherie Quilt top is in the process of being pieced
    CherieQuilt_unfinished
  • Phased Circles Quilt is being quilted.
    Phased Circles Outside

I say this as I am thinking of about 3 other projects I could be starting but not on my list for this month ;-).

My updated list for this month, does not have anything new but for some reason feels a little daunting….probably due to the fact 3 of these quilts are 60″ x 60″ or bigger.

WiP Wednesday in the Mountains

I have another finish to celebrate today….it is the “Mod Squares”. The design and tutorial can be found over at Sew Mama Sew. It is my new Fall/Autumn lap sized quilt, that I will be using for my sofa using low-volumes, neutrals and Indelible prints. My favorite part….I have a couple of stripes of some FMQ!!Mod_Squares_Finished_800

The rest of my projects, are coming along nicely too.  This list and deadlines have been keeping me on top of things for once, SUCCESS!!

I am on a last-minute vacation in the mountains this week. I am, however, trying to focus on the Cherie quilt top, now that two of the other quilts are complete. I managed to cut out all 182 pieces…I think that is the first time I cut out all the pieces (more or less) before starting the actual quilt. I usually cut, sew and then repeat.

So, now onto piecing all of these…my favorite part. Linking up with Lee over @ Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday (see button on the right).

WiP Wednesday and October goals

The past month has been good to me, as far as project progress. The “Neighbourhood” quilt is really close, I just need binding (maybe a Friday Finish??).

This will be my ALOYF for October as a carry over of September. I was so close. This week I have also made a huge amount of progress on my Sew Mama Sew project….its coming up next week. Here’s how my list is looking, going into October.

Almost there

This week, I am definitely trying to finish up the Neighbourhood quilt. I am about 3/4 of the way through quilting.

I am using the sunshine variegated Aurifil thread out of the Tula Pink Kit (#4658) to add some interest. I think it is looking good, those Oakshott Cottons look great!!Close-up Quilting_Neighbourhood

For my Cherie quilt, I picked out the Cherie fabrics from Frances Newcombe’s line. I want the quilt to be mostly made of the neutral fabrics with a slight pop of pink (like in the design, see link in the table).

So, last night while watching TV, I started laying out the initial blocks for the Quilt. Cherie_StartThat’s it for this week. Apologies for the photo’s…it has been raining here all day and the light has been terrible for photo’s.
