#1 is really my top priority, as it is a birthday present due in early August. I know, you are thinking "GET BUSY". I need to get back on it tonight.
#2 is a quilted grocery/picnic cooler bag. I have all the pieces cut:
I did a bit of test quilting, since it is so thick, with two layers of Insulbrite batting. I am planning on using my new Davis New Vertical Feed, so I was wondering how it would do, well I shouldn't have worried.
It went through the thickness like butter, with no slipping or sliding of layers, and no catching of the batting on the feed dogs (since there aren't any!). I love this machine!
The bag is based on the tutorial from SewMamaSew http://www.sewmamasew.com/2011/06/summer-sewing-insulated-picnic-tote/
#3 Is my Fourth of July quilt, pieced on my White Family Rotary treadle, I just need to sandwich and quilt it, and bind it.
#4 is a simple Christmas table runner. Yes folks, this has been hanging on the design wall since, oh, November.
Those are Christmas trees. Now that I have shared this, I really need to finish it.
# 5 is my guilt trip. I won these blocks from the Block of the Month drawing at my guild meeting. Everyone worked so hard on them, so I feel guilty they are languishing in my studio. There are a lot here, maybe even enough for two charity quilts.
# 6 is one of those "easy little projects" that should have been done long ago, a set of potholders from squares I got at a yard sale.
I think of these often when I use the ones in the kitchen that have gotten so ratty. I think it's only been a year, but maybe more.
The challenge only requires finishing ONE quilt or quilted project, so I am very hopeful to meet that and do a bit more. I really want to finish these before starting on anything new, and even then it should be from the projects I planned and purchased for, that are lurking in little plastic bins.
