I would love to join, but I'm not sure I could do all 11 quilts, or even name 11 quilts I plan to make at this point.  I do hope to finish 3 quilts-for-kids quilts this semester, and had vague plans for 4 more for friends over the course of the year, but those don't really fit in with my de-stashing goals.  It is hard to reconcile two very different crafting desires- quilting (a newer craft for me) and using what I have on hand - and schoolwork as well.

Feel free to join and post your list! This is just for encouragement and companionship as we're quilting, if your goal isn't 11 for the year that's fine, just set your goal and try to make it!

I am loving the quilts I have seen so far from you all and I can't wait to see what comes next.  I'm curious about the all white quilt too.  I love the wonky squares and the costume shop is fantastic! 

I've made some progress.  I finished the broccokitty top.  (Since I'm not sure about the etiquette for posting here and on the 50 projects list... I'm going to count for both if that is OK... I'm putting a different thumbnail here.  I hope that is OK.)

That's fine to post here even if you've posted elsewhere! If you made a specific post about a project in the quilt thread you can put a link here to it too.

Wow!  Everything looks awesome!  I have a 50% off coupon on my iPhone (check out their app, seriously) and I plan to use it on a large cut of batting Wink 

I am still collecting my ISpy squares and I plan to tackle the quilting of Sunbonnet Sue first.  Perhaps after a little crafting tonight I will take the quilt out.  I have no idea why I am so scared of it.  Roll Eyes 

Speaking of that...I need to figure out how to drop the feed dogs on my machine  Wink

I got the 2nd row of all 30 heart blocks done today and have a bunch pinned for 3rd row.  I hope to get all 4 rows of al 30 blocks completed tomorrow, and then I have to work all weekend, so I probably won't get much done, but I'm kind of hoping to get the tops pieced by the end of next week/

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

Mommy - on my new one, you can't drop the feed dogs.  If I had realized that I probably wouldn't have bought that model...but, you can always cover them with your darning plate if you can't drop 'em, so I guess it's not *that* big of a deal, it just annoys me a little.

I am trying to decide on a pattern for my yellow and gray (black, at this point) quilt and am going back and forth between simple squares sashed with wide white, or paper piecing string blocks.  I love the way they both look so I am really torn!  Anyone wanna help me decide?

So, this is an example of the string blocks (for some reason I want to call them Crazy string, it feels like I am calling them the wrong thing?  Idk, I'm tired and sick, lol):


And just so you get an idea of what it would look like full sized, here's a picture of another one, it's green where mine will be yellow but you can get the idea:



But then, I really REALLY like this too:


I was thinking that to make it a little more interesting and a little more 'me' I'd add a small square of the opposite color in each of the blocks, varying the placement of it...and I would love to add some pieced birds as well, maybe three of them hidden around.

So, I don't know...I am really liking the simplicity of the simple squares but it feels almost too simple or something.  What do you guys think?

oops maremare--wrong word--it should be SEMINOLE INDIAN...there are tons of patterns but it is a style that you make rows and then join all the rows...

bethieb--I like the second one with yellow...but I also like the simple quilts with white squares.. Cheesy

The pincushion block is wonderful!  That is going to be one interesting and fun quilt!

i like the idea of scattering a bird or two around.  are you thinking applique?

if you were going to applique the birds then i like the string quilt. (but then again... i love string quilts Smiley)

and you can save the simple squares for the next colour palette you HAVE to make!   Wink

BethieB - I LOVE the string quilt, the first one you posted is GORGEOUS. The contrast with the yellow is so striking.

I haven't been quilting as I should be. I'm done my first 4 rows of the queen size wedding quilt for my friend, so half way done the quilt top! I'm being really slow and cautious trying to make sure everything squares up properly. Being behind hasn't stopped me from shopping for more fabrics though! My boyfriend has become enamored with Bargellos, so I'm sneakily planning my next quilt.
