1. Black & White & Bright Hexies. Again. But I'd really like to get it done this quarter. Status: Piecing of top is underway. Slowly. I do love how it's looking but it's way more fiddly than I anticipated. I actually had to set it aside because I was getting aggravated by it.
2. Friendship Tree. I proposed to G's classroom teacher that I could make a quilt with the class. We've done something similar to the preschool/kindergarten fundraiser quilts I made a few years ago, but instead of leaf shapes already cut out, the kids traced their hands and we used those as "leaves". Stay tuned for the reveal! Status: basted and ready to quilt.
3. William Morris 16-Patch for Quilts of Valour. Status: partially cut out.
4. Strippy Quilt for Another Nephew. When I cut out the strips required to cut out the triangles for Star City, I cut extra WOF strips because I loved the fabric combo so much and wanted to make a quick strippy quilt by piecing them together. Since then I embarked on my "a quilt for each of the siblings' children" plan, and using WOF strips would make this quilt too narrow for its recipient. Accordingly, I will be deploying the strips in a slightly different way than I originally intended. Status: strips cut.
5. Wonderland Sampler. Sew Mama Sew is hosting a fun sew-along (with prizes woo hoo!). I'm so excited to have found the perfect way to deploy my rather significant collection of Wonderland by Momo. I am not usually one to go bazoo about fabric collections, but this is my one fabric collection weakness. I love all things Wonderland and have since winning a Fat Eighth bundle in a giveaway many moons ago.
Status: layout designed, thanks to Sarah Schraw of Sarah Quilts' wonderful tutorial.
I've got a lovely overnight retreat with the VMQG in early May (the guild's first!) and I'll be hitting this list hard (in between chatting, eating, wine-drinking and whatnot of course). It may be a wee bit ambitious but it's three whole months so I'm aiming high.
