Projects in Progress

This week I have been finishing up some projects and doing some smaller things before launching into my next set of quilts. All of the blocks for my Carpenter's Star quilt are finished I just need to get around to piecing the top.

I pull my fabric choices for my Dog Gone Cute quilt for my daughter. I'll be participating in the blog hop in October so stay tuned for that! I might add in a dark blue fabric from Cotton and Steel, but I haven't decided yet.

A month or two ago I came up with the idea that I wanted to make quilts for all of our nieces and nephews. We have a total of 12 plus Chad's younger sister who is the same age or younger than quite a few of them. Yeah, this is going to be a long-term project! Lost Lake will be going to my oldest nephew and my secret sewing, Cushion Cut, will be going to my oldest niece. Next up is a nephew so he is going to be getting a quilt out of the Dare To Be Square (amazon affiliate link) book by Boo Davis. It is called Basket Case and has a skull in the middle of the quilt. In the book, the background is in pinks but we decided on using greens instead.

I have also been working on my block for the 2015 Fabri-Quilt New Block blog hop which I will be sharing next Monday so make sure to check in for that!

I also have a very special super secret project that I will be working on for the next several months that I am very excited about and will probably share some progress on IG. With school starting soon for my two older girls, I'm hoping it will free me up to get some stuff done.

How many projects do you have in progress? I used to work on only one project at a time but lately I have been getting a little crazy with my projects!

Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts and Freshly Pieced.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun in the works! I love the fabric pull for your Dog Gone Cute quilt.... I can't wait to see that finished!

  2. It sounds like you have a lot of great and exciting projects planned and in the works. Having a goal, like making a quilt for all your nieces and nephews, can make finishing a project so exciting. Do you plan to gift them as you finish or all at once when they are all complete?

  3. I like your fabric choices for the projects. I have four projects going right now. One is a queen hand quilting for my bed which is a long term project I have been working on for a couple months. I am making a full rag quilt for my granddaughter, a baby tumbler quilt and some fabric coasters for this fall. I also have a tote with about 15 UFOs and a table runner I am half way through binding, Makes me wonder why I have so many at one time, ;) Debbie
