In the mix of quilting, sometimes life happens. Projects become PHDs (projects half done). In my case I am still quilting the Orange On Ringo Lake quilt. A few blocks every night, with more machine stitches accomplished on the weekend. This is going to be put aside for a bit.
In my post of expectations for 2018, I knew I would be doing a couple of baby quilts. The jury is still out what I am going to do for either of these quilts. Today will probably become a gathering day for one. I found out yesterday that the color scheme for one of these babies is lime and turquoise. I will be shopping my stash trying to figure out this challenge. Perhaps one side will be turquoise and neutrals and the other lime. I have never attempted these colors together. Maybe I shouldn’t pick neutrals but go with black to really make it pop. What pattern am I going to use? I will be brainstorming on this one, probably using my Pinterest account to see what I have pinned in the past for baby quilt ideas. I love a good challenge, don’t you?
I have three upcoming workshops, one for the jelly roll race, one for the garlic knot swap, and one for the iron caddy tote.
I have started gathering supplies to make another iron caddy tote but this time making it into a lunch bag with oil cloth goodness.
I have also come across a jelly roll with 50 strips all in earth tones. Beautiful colors and will get to this one someday.
I was also deciding about labeling my quilts. The labels you buy pre-made are a tad expensive, and I would use many, so I came up with my own label to make. Whichever quilt is finished next is going to get this label. I have spent $2.00 on this plus tax and should be able to get 15 labels out of the 2 bucks. I will probably date it and say “made by me”. I look forward to sharing all of this with you. Oh sew many irons in the fire, and so little time!
