Hm, I don't feel like I got much done this week, but maybe when I see it all in list form I'll feel better about it :)
Skill Builder Sampler - challenge block and block 4
I love this QAL! The colors I am using just make me happy and I love all the different blocks. My challenge block is log cabins making a cross (I have seen these all over and love them and wanted to try it). I even managed to keep my directional prints the right way! I love it and figure if nothing else, I will use it on the back.
Block 4 is pinwheels and although I wasn't sure I would like it that much, I love it now that it's done. I also think I found the perfect sashing for this quilt so I need to figure out how much of that I need and order it even though I won't need it for a long time.
Summer Sampler Series - blocks 1-3
Star of Virginia, Greek Cross and Mosaic Block. I am loving the way these summery colors are coming together.
Is it a table cloth if it doesn't hang over the sides? Either way, I made this out of an Amy Butler laminate and bound it with some olive green pre-made binding. I love how it looks, the problem is that it is not washable really aside from a wipe down, and my kid is messy. Really messy. So we'll see how long it lasts. It already looks kinda nasty around the binding.....
Christmas in July
I am in the last stage of sewing down the binding. One more good movie and it should be done, maybe tonight. I got a little distracted by a book the past few days which is why it's not done....
I haven't worked on it and don't plan to for another couple weeks once the summer sampler is done.
Farmers Wife QAL
Rainbow style! I finally have the templates cut out (it was a pretty big undertaking and used far too many naptimes)! I plan to start today and hopefully do the first couple of blocks. My fabrics are all washed and ready to go and I am sooo excited. I decided I am going to go in order that the blocks are with the letters instead of just going in numerical order. It should be interesting. I am a little scared by the templates and how small some of these pieces are going to get, but hopefully it will go well.
The 4th block was posted Monday and the 5th today. I may just wait until the end of the week and do all 3 together again. I kinda liked it that way and it helps me balance the colors I think.
That's it I think. I do feel better! All those individual blocks remind me that I was actually pretty productive (and those stinking templates sucked up a lot of time). I am just working on a lot of quilting things right now before I dive back into some things I need to make for the little one and the house and such. At least those other things usually go a lot quicker so I feel more productive; it helps me get through the more long term projects.
