Project List

I feel like my blog has been all about client quilting these days - and although the majority of my time is spent on quilting - I do have a few projects in the works today that I thought I'd share.  

Sometimes a girl just needs to sit down and sew for some sanity!

Horrible lighting as these pictures were taken at night - but pictures none the less.

First up is a sneak peak at a cute quilt I'm making for a client.  She wanted a sea type theme.  Boats, mermaids, seashells etc.  Out to Sea by Sarah Jane was the perfect pick and I'm so glad she loved the fabric and let me run with it.  This has been such a fun project - that will be wrapped up this week.  Just need to buy some backing and get it quilted.  

This next block was inspired by a quilt I quilted up this last week.  The pattern is Vintage out of Simply Retro book by Camille Roskelley.  Great book - with wonderful patterns.  I want to make each one!  I love books like that where you buy for not just one or two patterns but for all patterns!  ANYWAYS.... I bought the Candy Corn bundle of fabric and have been dying to get a fall project going.  So after the inspiration - I decided this was the pattern.  I have 3 blocks down and 9 more to go.  The blocks are 20 inches and go together fairly quickly!  Going to be a fun one that I may actually finish while its still fall!

Oh and here's a few pics of the inspiration for Vintage - I thought this quilt was SO Cute!  She made a baby sized version with just 4 blocks!

She chose the baptist fan for quilting - I LOVE how this turned out.

The backing fabric was so cute too!

These next 2 blocks are from the Little Lollies pattern by Fig Tree.  When this pattern came out I had to make both the quilts in the pattern.  So I bought Avalon and Tapestry to mimic the pattern.  And then they came out with a Halloween version and I had to have the kit - so I'm finally working on it - my goal to have it done by October 1st.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  They also have a Chirstmas version - I'm so tempted!

This next project is for a client and I'm so excited about - just need to get moving a little faster on it!  Its from the Lincoln pattern by Miss Rosie  and we are only using the tans/greys/whites/creams from French General and a little Minnick and Simpson.  Are these called low level quilts?  I can't remember the name, but I'm excited to do this one.  I think it will look so classy and clean when its done!  Also a goal for September....I'm running out of time!

Last but not least is the beginnings of a baby quilt out of High Street fabrics.  I.LOVE.THIS.LINE - can't get enough of it!  I have a shower on Thursday - so am hoping to add some borders and quilt this one up tonight - better get going!  I have big plans for High Street - like On a Whim big plans!  This line is so bright and cheery!  

There you have it - I might have ADD when it comes to projects - but at least I'm working on something!

Linking up to WIP Wednesdays!

Lordy, Lordy, but you have a lot going on. Each project is unique from the brights for the baby quilt to the low value of the French General..which I might add is going to be beautiful. I think the babtist fan pattern was perfect for Camille's design. Thanks for sharing,
