My list looks pretty short and achievable. Dare I say that I'm feeling quietly confident that I can make good progress.
Here is my list of things that I'd like to get done:
1. The Bird Quilt.
This is expected back from the quilters any day now, so all I need to do is trim and bind it! I am extremely excited by the sneak peak of the quilting that I have seen so far and I can't wait to see the whole quilt.
2. Butterfly Quilt
If you see the colours of the bundle of amazing Oakshott Cotton that I am working with for this quilt, your first thought might not be butterflies, but I like using fabrics that are not the obvious choice.
3. The Secret Squirrel project.
|A Sneak Peak!- I'm not showing you any more at the moment!|
I have a new pattern designed, I have a pile of potential fabrics to use. I have a deadline... I don't want to reveal too many details at the moment, but what I will tell you is that I am working together with the team from the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults and there may or may not be a giveaway involved!
4. The Sampler Quilt
This one's a regular on my finish-a-long list! I really really need to take the sampler quilt out of the WIP basket and give it some loving.
Its pretty close to being finished, I just need to trim the blocks; sew them together; sweet talk Deb into letting me use her long arm machine for the quilting; and then bind it.
So there they are, the four projects that I can share with you at the moment. There are a couple of others, but they are either still too early in the planning phases to include or projects that can't be discussed on here just yet (hee hee!)
I have good hope that I'll manage three out of the four projects and I'd love to think that the fourth will get done too.
Wish me luck!
(Sorry for the lack of decent fabric photos in this post for the new projects but its a horribly grey day today and it's difficult to do justice to the beautiful fabrics.)
I am, of course, linking up with Katy over at the Littlest Thistle
