I am working towards completing my works in progress. I really have the bug to get everything wrapped up and decks cleared to start some new projects.
This. This is the white whale. I must have this quilt. I must. I have the ombre bundle sitting in my studio. I have the desire. I probably have the skill. I want to own that quilt.
I want to focus on it completely.
And so I am wrapping up things. Last weekend I finished a quilt top so it could be sent for quilting. I wanted to finish a project per weekend, but didn’t get there this weekend. And I am fixated on how much “done” do I need to be. I have a plethora of orphan blocks that should be used for something useful. What do I do about those? I am going to use them up. These decks are going to be cleared!!
- New quilt for our bed. We growed-up the decorations in our room and so I want a new quilt to go with them.
- Living Room wall hanging. I created a new wall hanging for our living room not that long ago. But these mysterious black stains appeared on it when it was washed and it bugs me unreasonably. I want to create a new one to replace it. Goal for getting this done is 1/31.
3. Heather Bailey improv quilt. I still have a lot of Heather Bailey scraps that I want to make into a quilt for my studio. I have started with these adorable blocks. My goal for getting this quilt done is 2/7.
4. Lots and lots of Project Linus quilts. I think most of these orphan blocks from my abandoned farm girl vintage quilt and those that I didn’t use in my stepdaughter’s quilt will make great Project Linus quilts. But creating all of those quilts could take me another 3 months. My “find the gray” compromise will be to work on these interspersed with the WIPs above. I got a start on a baby-sized quilt this weekend with some orphan blocks.
Here is to getting stuff done!!
