Time seems to be flying by here at prsd4tim2. I thought retirement might be boring, but no, I seem to fill every day and wonder where the day went when it gets dark. What's up with that? I honestly can't believe it's been a whole week since I blogged. And I don't think I have any finishes to report, at least not any that can be shared until they are received by the recipients, but rest assured I've been stitching away!
I finished all the blocks for the Fat Quarter Shop 2012 Mystery Block of the Month quilt. Next up - the 90 Flying Geese that make up the sashing for this quilt.
Can I just say I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of them? Flying geese are no problem, but 90 of them? Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it.
But I finally got the pieces cut out, so I will get to this soon. I hope to have it finished to give to my friend in September.
My faux string quilt. The pattern, you may remember, is Heximetry by my friend Ali of a_2_w and the fabric is from Westwood Acres' Stripes That Bind bundle. By the way, I learned yesterday that Ali's book is available for pre-order on Amazon! Woot! Woot!
a cutting table to give me more storage! How in the world did I cram so. much. stuff. into my tiny previous space???) By the way, this adorable stitchery pattern is available free on my friend Ellyn's blog.
Want to join us? It's really a beautiful quilt. The fabric is Beechwood Park by Jeanene Morrison and a selection of solids from my stash. I have a confession to make - I only had a FE bundle, and she calls for fat quarters in her instructions, so I grabbed the solids and started cutting... and totally lost count. It will be interesting to see if I have enough or way too many diamonds, won't it? In any event, I can't wait. The quilt is amazing!
So, there you have it! I'm pretty sure that's ALL the WIPs I worked on this week. I hope to have at least one completed project by next week! Wish me luck! What are you working on?
I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced again today...
