I joined the 50 projects craft-a-long in order to push myself to finish a boat load of projects laying around the basement. Many of my WIP's and WTBS (is works to be started a real term?) are quilts. Including wedding and baby quilts for couples celebrating multiple anniversaries and babies entering kindergarden. The weddings I can excuse. I needed to make sure they would last! The baby, not so much. If I don't have enough fabric to make it longer, I'll just add a sleeve and call it a wall hanging! Several of them are really just comforters, tied rather than quilted.
So... I've spent the past month or sew
working on some of those projects.
This is the whole batch
From the finished pile
This memory quilt was the simplest WIP to finish. I just needed to learn how to put a sleeve on the back and to finish the binding.
The picture isn't the best but here is a close up of one section. It is a picture of boy blacksmith at 3 building a cabin. (He built the bench.)
This is the wedding quilt. To be gifted today!
I kinda, sorta over bought the fabric so here is a small baby/table runner size from the leftovers.
This is the baby quilt. I really don't like it now that it is finished, but I'm done and moving on now.
And here is a quilt-as-you-go practice piece made into a table runner. I did this to use up the fabric from the Easter Chickens.
There is one more memory quilt, but it is off at the quilters.
Now here is the WIP pile... at least the ones that are out of the boxes. I'll just show the ones ready to go to the quilter.
My ME quilt. (Made out of Mary Engelbriet fabrics for ME because I love them.)
I'm trying to decide if I can machine quilt this one myself. After I showed a practice piece to the troops they said send it to the quilter. EEEP.
And remember that fabric I over bought? Well here is an 80x48 little doodle I made with the rest of it. You can only see about half of it in this picture.
