Working Hard to Finished my WIPs for 2011…

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:

  • 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?

    I’m curled up in my Star Friendship Quilt right now as I’m reading & commenting! I love it Wendy, and hope you have one of your own soon!

    These are just beautiful, and I think my favorite one is the first one. Great job on these!
