Quarter 2 Preview

This coming quarter is looking to be a busy one.  I already have my projects lined up, and I can't wait to get them all finished.

Project #1:  Ole Miss Patchwork Quilt

I'm putting together this full-size patchwork quilt for a graduation gift.  For anyone who knows me well, they know I don't willingly cheer for Ole Miss much less any SEC school.  I'm almost half-way done with the quilting, and I hope to be finished in the next week or so.  I'll be glad to get this one out of my house soon...it's clashing with the burnt orange.  Hook'em Horns!  \m/

Project #2: Star Quilt

A good friend of mine has asked me to make a twin size quilt for her daughter as she transitions from a crib/toddler bed to a "BIG GIRL" bed.  I have the main-feature fabric, which was selected by the mom, and I have the design all laid out.  I just need to buy the coordinating solid fabric and batting, and I'll be good to go.

Project #3: Daughter's Birthday Quilt

I already have the front pieced from a jelly roll of Bonnie & Camille's Marmalade collection.  I'm using Amy Butler's Tangerine / Full Moon Polka Dot fabric from her Lotus collection for the back, and I'm using the large floral prints from the Marmalade jelly roll to make up a scrappy binding.  My daughter's birthday is at the end of May, so I need to get moving on this one soon.

Project #4:  Disappearing 9-Patch Wedding Quilt

I'll be using Amy Butler's Belle collection, and some Kona Snow, to create a large disappearing 9-patch lap quilt for a dear friend.  He's getting married in July and I hope this proves to be a wonderful gift for his new home together with his bride.

Project #5:  A Secret Surprise

I can't tell you much about this one, but you'll see it mid-May.  :)

Other fun projects for Quarter 2:
  • Revamping my sewing room with a new sewing table, cutting table, and quilt rack.  I can't wait to show it all off once it's completed.  I haven't even seen it all yet, and I'm completely jittery with anticipation.  I'll be posting about it in early June.  I'm so excited about this one!!!!
  • Making 2 new sewing machine covers that are larger and fit my sewing machines properly.  I'll be squeezing this in somewhere between all the quilts listed above.
It's going to be a fun-filled 3 months!
