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.
