1. Cherry Christmas Scrappy Trip-Along
This quilt has been in progress since 2013, and is SO close to being finished (I am stitching down the binding).
2. Ursa Major
So far, just the bear is pieced (using Juliet's wonderful Big Bear pattern - available here), but I have more of the blue background fabric to complete the quilt top and an idea.
3. Heart Quilt
This quilt has been hanging out on my design wall since May! I even made the binding back then, but it's been waiting for the right quilting idea. I am planning to densely FMQ in the background and hand quilt the heart.
4. Clover Sunshine and Oakshott
I haven't made any more progress with these blocks, and I'm still not totally sure what I want to do with them...
5. Midnight at the Oasis
I still love this quilt, but I haven't really worked on it since Christmas 2013(!). The fourth border is really nearly done, so I should probably make getting that finished my goal and then start thinking about the next border (all those teeny tiny churn dash blocks).
6. Indie Stripes quilt
I've been hand-quilting this quilt for about a year. I don't think it will get finished in Q1 (particularly because it's quite warm at the moment and therefore not the best time to sit under a big quilt while you stitch it), but I'm determined to finish it this year.
7. Bangles Quilt
I started this quilt in January 2013, and yup, I've still only sewn a single hexagon...
8. Jenny's Fancy That quilt
I started this quilt in October 2013, in a class with Sarah Fielke. I stitched one quarter wheel in place using the needle turn method and it got a big lump in it, and I haven't touched it since. I'm going to unpick that part, abandon any attempts at needle turn appliqué (it's just not for me), and machine blanket stitch the appliqué in place instead.
9. Moonshine Stars
This is a fairly new project - started in late December 2014 and already a quilt top. It's out for long-arm quilting so I will just need to bind it when it's been quilted.
10. Cotton and Steel and Low Volume quilt
Another new project, this one started in 2015! This is continuing my exploration of improvisational curved piecing. As you may be able to tell from the name, this quilt uses a selection of low volume fabrics together with fabrics from the first Cotton and Steel collections. I've made four blocks (out of 15) so I reckon this should at least be a quilt top in Q1.
11. Purple wonky stars and 1930's prints
I started cutting fabric for this quilt in January last year, because I thought it might make a good Radiant Orchid project. However, I never actually got around to piecing it. It's inspired by this quilt and I still want to make it.
12. Green and blue drunkard's path quilt
Another quilt I never blogged about - but part of my resolution to conquer curves in 2014. I used my friend Anne's Accuquilt die-cutting machine to cut lots of blue and green drunkard's path blocks. I'm planning to put them together fairly randomly.
13. Argh My Eyes V2
I made a quilt called Argh My Eyes! for Quilt Symposium. I can't share it online yet, because one of the exhibition rules is that quilts must not have been published online before they are exhibited. However, the process of making this quilt meant I ended up with 60 blocks for a 30 block quilt - so I can make a second quilt using the extra blocks. I'm thinking I'll add some appliqué to the second one so it is truly a different quilt from the first.
14. Echino quilt
After I made an all Echino quilt last year, I decided I wanted one for myself. It's super quick to sew up, so I started the top in early January and it's already at the long-arm quilter for quilting.
15. Karen Lewis Log Cabin mini V2
When I started my igminiswap quilt, I knew I was going to love it, so I cut enough pieces for a second version for myself. I've started making the blocks but other priorities intervened at the end of last year.
16. Blue, White and April Showers High Tea quilt
After I made my first High Tea quilt, I decided to make a second one using a layer cake of April Showers that had been sitting in my stash for a while, and white and navy solids. I've stitched all the sashing strips together but I think I was defeated by the ironing!
17. Dressing Table set quilt
I've collected quite a few of these colourful vintage doilies / dressing table sets, and I would really like to incorporate them into a quilt. I have an idea - the main thing I need now is some free time to work on it.
18. Secret sewing quilt
I shared this fabric pull for a little quilt I'm making for an online magazine. I can't say too much more, but I have a January deadline so it WILL be done in Q1.
In order to keep up with my Year 30 quilt challenge (read more about it here) while I was away on holiday, I prepared these orange peel blocks for hand stitching. They were really fun, and a certain someone insisted that I should make a quilt using similar blocks. At this stage, the quilt may be more of a mini, but we'll see!
I'm actually surprised that the list isn't longer!
The Q1 link-up is open for a few more days, so if you haven't made your list and linked up yet, get on it and you you can find the link-up here. For those who have linked up, I am working through your posts and loving all the beautiful projects people are working on. I'm aiming to look at and comment on 20 posts a day until I get through all of them, so if I haven't made it to you yet, never fear, I'm on my way!
