This is a quilt by Piece O Cake Designs. I love their stuff, and I ADORE this quilt. I have been coveting it for a number of years and gathering polka dots to go in it. I'm hoping to start it soon, but I anticipate finishing it years from now. Maybe if I put it on the blog, I will be accountable to someone and be motivated to get some of it done. I can at least find all those paper piecing things I photocopied. Now, I have never done any paper piecing before in all these years, so I'm excited to give it a shot.
I'll give you a current projects list as well, although, it cannot be complete, because the bins in my garage hold numerous works in progress. I will just list the ones I am actively working on.*A cryptic reference to one I am giving as a gift and therefore cannot say more. If I showed it here, the recipient would know who it was for, I think. I guess you can see it after Christmas. *A king size quilt for my bed using Benartex's City Girl fabrics in pink chocolates. Yummy! *Pink and green applique quilt for my girls' bed -- pinned and ready to quilt. *Pink and brown Ohio star that I started forever ago and have recently unearthed. It's reminding me how much I love scrap quilts. *Seaside Rose (by Moda) hourglass quilt *Simplicity (by Moda) sawtooth stars quilt from one of my previous posts *Blue, pink, burgundy, green, yellow appliqued and pieced quilt -- one more strip of applique left to do. *Hand quilting the patriotic star quilt from an earlier post
This is just the quilting project list, but I'm already tired from just making the list. So fun, though! Cardwise, I have a birthday gift to make for my dear friend, whose birthday is tomorrow, and I am still working on the box of cards for a Christmas gift. I also have scrapbook night this Friday at my house, and then next Wednesday is card swap for which I have to make 2 sets of 12 cards and for which I have made 0 cards so far. It's only Monday. I can do it, although I may have to make the cards at scrapbook night.
Ooh, I just keep looking at that polka dot quilt and loving it! Maybe I'll start it tomorrow. I can't today, because I have so much transcribing to do, but I'll try to sneak some in tomorrow maybe.
I know I should stick to what is already in progress, but what fun would that be?
