Net destashed added in 2017:  6.5 yards

“Surrounded by Scraps” by Charlotte Hawke

The warm weather is really slowing sewing production!  However, I’ve inched along and gotten a few things done in the past two months.

March/April Goals:

  1. Make donation blocks for Kat’s Covered with Love.  Yes!  And mailed!
  2. Clue 3 for Surrounded by Scraps.  Yes!  And the next one, the top is finished.
  3. Finish the orange Cabins donation quilt.  Yes, also mailed!
  4. Storm at Sea Quilt:  Decide about cropping corners, finalize quilting plan, trim excess batting, sandwich, begin quilting.  I worked on this.  I made a number of decisions about quilting, and trimmed some of the batting.  I still have more marking before I begin quilting.

May Goals:

  1. Make blocks for Kat’s May/June block drive.
  2. Begin the Twilters! facebook group quilt along.
  3. Make backing and sandwich Surrounded by Scraps.
  4. Make summer/patriotic wall hangings.

Hope youre making all of your goals!

WIP Wednesday

I haven’t been here in a long time!  First, we spent a few weeks on vacation.  Since we’ve returned,  the weather has been so warm that we’ve worked outside nearly every day.  And, it’s getting to that time when the upstairs sewing studio is hot and not as attractive.

I have managed to put together most of the top to Surrounded by Scraps, Charlotte’s mystery quilt for this year.  The top three rows are complete, and I’m almost finished with the bottom two.  I’m quilting this in two sections  and putting them together later.

And I cut my “layer cake” for the Twilters! quilt along in May.

Hope you’re enjoying the spring (or fall!) weather.
