There are 38 photos here, but if you count each individual make there are many more. To break down the makes:
Bed quilts: 6 (4 twin and 2 queen)
Baby size quilts: 5
Wallhanging size/runners: 5
Cushion covers: 7 (includes the pillowcases)
Placemats/cat mats: 12
Island Batik makes: 13 (I did two projects for one of the challenges), plus the Patio Chillin' table topper was an extra all IB batiks for fun project.
Whoa, that totals 50 items. I also quilted a quilt for a customer. 27 of the 50 makes were given away, either as presents, comfort or healing. Also of note for my future self, is that since the beginning of May, I've done this while living in half a house, with a puppy we got February 2 at the age of 6 months, a senior dog who had his second ACL surgery in April, and in a year when we travelled extensively, almost 7 weeks away.
I never did show the scarf I finally finished knitting for Dayna:
Remember the geese I caught in my last post, flying over my Floral Stars quilt? Well early this morning I saw the same ones, I like to think, flying in the opposite direction. I bet they were headed to the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary area where there are lots of open fields with good eating! I just managed to catch them in my photo:
My OMG for this month will be to get the flimsy together for my RSC Arrows quilt:
Update: Well, I thought, I'll just take the stack of blocks and lay them back out on the design wall to see where I'm at as far as needing plain squares, and how DO these black and brown blocks look?
A few hours later, this had happened:
|Of COURSE the wind whipped around right when I wanted a photo...|
So I AM going to add another OMG since I finished this one in stunningly lightning fast speed: I'm going to finish one more of my scraps boxes by month's end. I have panels made for a couple of the colours, so it'll be aqua or orange, probably aqua, as my blues Rubbermaid plastic box is overflowing.
I've been having a blast watching/listening to bluprint classes. I'll be back later this week to let you know some good ones, but do the words, Cameli and Kennedy mean anything to you?!
Speaking of distractions, I mentioned in my last post the bluprint sale:
In case you didn't catch the update on that last post, I did succumb last night... I just got one item that's been on my Wishlist, and I'm pretty pumped about it. It's Cutting Flowers (affiliate link) and I can't wait to see the fabric! It's got excellent reviews. I got the queen size, destined for our bed once we move upstairs. I ordered it last night (Friday) and it shipped this morning!
