Upcoming Projects – A Busy August and Beyond
Here is a recap of some of the projects we will be working on over the next month and beyond. I have a habit of adding new projects willy nilly, but it’s good to have a full plate right?!
Several of you have joined our sew along, choosing between three different free quilt patterns. We selected Up From Here and only have one square together so far. Since several of our friends have already completed their flimsies, we feel woefully behind (not really). Plus I had the wild idea of making the other two projects as well!
We’re making another Plus Playtime for a young friend who just bought his first house. His major is math so we think a plus sign quilt is just the perfect quilt. We’ll have to find just the perfect backing fabric!
When the directions for the first block for Fireburst were released on August 1st, we discovered that we had mixed up some of the fabrics. Sew, we need to remake several of those before we can put our Fireburst block together. Good thing we have all month to get it corrected and made! Way back in Step 1 the mistake was made.
We went to visit my brother after the 4th of July. My sister-in-law asked us to make her a new purse, so that is going on our list. I’ve not made a purse for a while but I know we can do it. I’m on the hunt for a pattern that looks similar to her old purse.
The next hand quilting project for Sue is together except for borders. We would like to get those borders on, it layered and let the hand quilting begin.
George the Giraffe needs to be designed based on these picture ideas. Of course, this will not happen in just one month but we need to get the wheels in motion.
Etc. . .
Complete UFOs and finish all of these for PHD . . . oh so much to sew and sew little time.
