Projects Galore! Quilts, Quilts and more Quilts!

I've got the quilting bug!!  I thought I would share my current projects --- this is only a few of the many in boxes and bags waiting to be started/worked on/ and completed.  If you ask my husband, he is pretty sure I have over 1000 projects in various stages--- hmmm.... he might be right ;)

My eye is on these fabrics for my next project.  I will be the quilt guild president for 2011 and I'm hoping the ladies will want to do a mystery quilt.  I have already chosen a pattern and these will be my fabrics:

This will be my Christmas decoration hanging on my front door.

Now this next project has been in hibernation for over 10 years!!  When I lived in Logan, before I even meet my husband, I was quilting alot with my mother and we went to a quilt retreat and this is the project I chose.  It is so time consuming that the only thing I got done at the retreat was coloring my diagram and cutting the pieces.  Because each block intercedes with the next block and each row gets bigger and bigger it is sewn together piece by piece not block by block.  I hope it will be stunning when it is completed!!   Note:  Daytona (my fur-baby) was very jealous about all the attention he wasn't getting and wanted to be in the picture too!

And last but not least, when we did our renovation on the great-room in our home, I decided to hang some of my past projects in the entry.  I have made many quilts, but rarely used them -- I don't know why.  But with our new decor- they are everywhere -- even on our bed!!  The center quilt was a gift from my mother for Christmas last is appliqued!  Simply Beautiful!!
I love to start new projects, a bit slow to finish, but I hope by the first of the year you will come back and see the finished items!
Wish me luck!

BTW --- I can't be the only one with several projects in the works -- how many do you have?


  1. Love the hangy thingy--what is it? Those quilts look fabulous. What a darling door hanger that will be? What pattern did you use?
    Love it all!! Julie

  2. Do you personally know Julie? She's a sweetheart!

    Love all your projects. It's nice to fill you home with your own handmades!

  3. I just love the cool idea of refurbishing the ladder to hang the three quilts. You are always clever even when you doubt yourself. We need to do another CARD day.
