I have a lot to do if I am to complete my quilting projects for 2011. I love having several quilts “in progress” at any one time, but I sometimes have a tendency to have too many unfinished projects before jumping into a new one. I made myself a promise at the beginning of November to complete some of the works in progress (WIPs) before the year came to a close. Here is what is what is in the stack:
- Collaborative Sisters Quilt (pieced with my sister, Paula, in October). This has been pinned and is ready to be quilted … it is the next project up in the stacks:
- Summer Sampler (this was pieced this summer as part of a quilt-along group on Flickr). I need to get this one sandwiched, pinned and quilted:
- Rockin’ Robin Quilt (another quilt along from the summer). I need to finish piecing the back for this quilt, then sandwich, pin and quilt it:
- Star Friendship Quilt (you might remember that this is part of a companion quilt project – I finished its companion for my friend, Laura, in June). I am the farthest behind on this quilt. The blocks are all made, but they need to be pieced into rows, and then the rows need to be joined. I also want to make a pieced border. The back is also undone. Then it needs pinning and quilting. I will have to work really hard to get this one completed before the end of 2011:
I think this is enough to keep my sewing machine rumbling along for the next six weeks, don’t you?
