Zoe---'Summer School' --for a great review and some lessons learned, check out this blogpost.

2012 Finish #7

  • Skill Builder Sampler Block #6, 7, 21

I've put the first 6 together with the sashing that I have come up with. Carefully fussy cut both the sashing and cornerstones. Hoping for creating the effect of rivets (they are buttons printed on the fabric for the sashing) and a square washer at the cornerstones in red with a grey center.

  • McCall's Mystery - Part 2 (both versions), it might be a couple of months before we get instructions for part 3 which should include the final assembly.

  • EQ7 BOM layout, today is piecing day! Can't reveal this until March 1
Also awaiting quilting:
  • Charmed Network v.2 - Eva
  • WWVQG 2006 Basket BOM
'Til Next Time
  • Oddie's Wild Nature (O.W.N.)
  • Alaska's 2007 Shop Hop (block 1 is up in February)
  • Out of the Darkness (block 1 is up in February)
  • Rose of Sharon Bird Block (hoping for a finish within February)
  • Snowflake/Blizzard Quilt
  • Irena Bluhm coloring samples

  1. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with so many projects going at once!

  2. The skill builder sampler looks awesome. I love the fabrics. I used the Rosie fabrics for a couple wall hangings a couple years ago. They hang in my office and sewing rooms, inspiring me to quilt.
