2011 Quilty Goals: Q1 Check-in

Back in December, Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy created a link-up for those of us who love to make lists. Here we are at the first check-in!

1. Sewing machine cover. This is now a mini quilt because it ended up too small to cover the machine. I'll be hand quilting it at some point. Hopefully this millennium.

2. Rainbow I Spy (That Girl, That Quilt Along). Still stalled, but at least I've got two more rows made since I put it on the list (the orange borders are all on).

3. Fresh Air Charm Quilt. Finished into placemats that look great in our Dining Room!

4. New Wave Quilt. Fabrics are all cut, but that's where it has stalled. I did get started on the back, however:

5. Traffic Jam Quilt. No progress.
6. Heather R keepsake quilt. Design and fabrics chosen.
7. Bees. I'm up to date! Here are some of the blocks I've made, together with a photo of the strips I sent out to my two bees for March.
Bees So Far

Why I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked on the list:

8. Doll Quilt Swap 10. I completed my quilt and sent it off, and I'm still waiting on mine.

DQS10 Finished!
9. Lily's Quilts Dresden Quilt Along. Put a F8 bundle of Wonderland to good use...

And that's not a bad thing - I had fun making my DQS10 quilt, and I am loving both of the QALs. Just keeping myself busy is all. Separate progress post to come!


  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! Wow! So, so much eye candy and so much progress! You're definitely going to finish off this list by the end of the year, if not sooner!

  2. I'd say that's a very impressive list for a F/T workin' momma!


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
