Okay, Rhonda’s Finish Along is fab for making me keep track of things over a longer period, but I actually have things to do that aren’t on that list too, you know, new things that I also have to do as well o.O Anyway, I saw Traceyjay’s Three For April popping up, and decided that it was a good thing to keep track of just this month’s ‘To Do’ list, or at least the 3 most important things!
1st up is my Stained Quilt. This is my granny’s birthday pressie for early May, so I’d best get to it! I’m just doing a solid back from a flannelette sheet that’s in the wash right now, and I’m going to take it over to my gran’s on Monday to use her big floor space to baste it on. I’m planning on some wavy organic line quilting, to kind of go with the swirls and circles in the fabric, what do you think?
2nd up are my makes for the sample swap at the Fat Quarterly Retreat. I’ve got a few ideas in mind, but haven’t reached a final design yet…
3rd up, is that rainbow windmill cushion. I know you’re all as sick of hearing about this as I am of saying it, so enough already! I just want this one out of the way, so I’m hoping to get to it over this long weekend…
How about the rest of you, any of you joining in?
Great idea! Haven't seen this Katy and as you say we need to keep track of new too!
Get those done girl – they are so worth finishing off!
You can do it, gogogo! 🙂
I'm going to try and get some of your paper piecing lessons done, this weekend, but I'm not promising anything else!
love the windmill think i would like to give it a go !!!have not been able to find it !!and the colour in your stain are scrummy
I like the idea of wavy line quilting, I keep meaning to try this myself so thanks for reminding me as I have a quilt to baste too over the weekend! Looking forward to seeing what you make for the sample swap and both of these lovely projects finished. Is there show and tell at the guild meetings?
This Stained quilt looks fantastic! I'm sure granny will love it. Hope you're gonna blog about it and show some close up photos.
Have a nice weekend!
Your poor cushion is getting a complex. It is funny how we get a block about something and put it off. I really know the feeling.
must say sweetie, loving the streamlined clean new blog look! How on earth do you get all your buttons the same size???
Love the stained glass! Gorgeous
The Stained Glass quilt is beautiful and I love the idea of contrasting all the rectangles with wavy quilting. Good luck on your cushion this weekend! Sometimes the smallest projects give me the most resistance!
I'm hoping to get two small quilts basted this weekend. I love the colors in your stained glass and think wavy line quilting is a great idea. That poor cushion is another future project I want to get to and hope if I do it turns out as lovely as yours. Happy Easter Katy. Hugs
I can't wait to see your stained quilt done – it's just gorgeous! Can I ask how you got your numbered comments to work? I've spent hours stuffing around with tutorials, changing the html, and nothing works…
Hmm cool idea
I think the wavy lines would look great… it's a beautiful quilt! Amazing windmill block too!
Thank you for linking up! I look forward to seeing your report at the end of the month!
I think they are feasible 'to do's! The Stained is amazing and I think the wavy lines sound perfect.
I know what I'm doing for the swap – just need to get started! 🙂
I think the organic wavy lines will look perfect on the quilt. Will help to break up the stained glass effect to, making a beautifully balanced quilt. Your granny's a lucky girl!
I think it's very wise to stick with three. Right now, I can't manage more than one!
Yes, organic lines! And that is going to be one beautiful cushion!
I can't wait to see the finished Stained Quilt!
