Like many crafters out there, I start projects faster than I can finish them. This means that my pile of UFOs gets bigger and bigger ! Now is time to take stock :
- Sashiko quilt
This quilt top is finished and has been for about 5 years and needs to be quilted.
- Brown Sashiko table runner
This project was to be a 1.5m-long table runner for my dining table but given how slow progress is, I may reconsider. The ends of each line need to be cut and tied in the back of the fabric. It is quite wasteful on the Gutermann Topstitch I use in the bobbin as about half of each spool gets wasted in order to tie the line ends properly. It may mutate into a smaller wall hanging.
- Patchwork Scottie
This little cream Scottie follows Denyse Schmidt’s pattern here. I should be able to finish it quickly if I put my mind to it.
- Order to Chaos quilt
I started this single-bed quilt earlier this year but got a bit frustrated with it. In the top rows, the blocks are aligned perfectly straight and towards the bottom, more blocks become wonky as they reach the bottom of the quilt. Joining the straight blocks section with the wonky blocks section is proving a bit problematic, so I put it aside to work on something else.
- Dr Seuss Character Quilt
Lucie is a great fan of all of Dr Seuss’s stories and I love the Dr Seuss fabric that came out earlier this year. I have been cutting up the red stripey fabric into its individual characters and I have been framing each of them into each of the primary colours used in the book illustrations. I have enough of these blocks for a big single-bed quilt. I parked this quilt waiting for a bolt of white Kona cotton. It is here now so no excuse !
- Shwe Shwe Quilt 2
This one will be for the shop and just need to be quilted.
- Zig Zag Quilt
This is my first zig-zag quilt. This is the project I am currently working on as it has a deadline attached to it… but it’s a secret for the moment.
- Layer cake hexagon quilt
Bar Harbour layer cake by Minick and Simpson for Moda turned into big hexagons. I am not sure I like the layout, I may shuffle things a bit for a more random look…
These are all the projects that I started but the list of projects I would like to start is even longer… more on it soon. Time to get stitching !
