First off, I just want to say how much I have enjoyed looking at all the quilts that were submitted to the Blogger's Quilt Festival this past weekend! I have truly been inspired.
And thank you to those that took the time to come check out my little offering. :)
Now onto WiP's!
The only thing I worked on this week was my Swoon Mini quilt.
I got the borders pieced and sewn on. Pretty, huh??
I was going to try and have it all sandwiched and ready to quilt, but then I discovered that I don't have any large pieces of batting left.
(Speaking of, I really need to think of a better way to store/organize my batting. Shoving it all in a large plastic bag just isn't cutting it!)
So I suppose it is off to JoAnns for me today. They have batting 40% off this week. I would really like to get this quilt done this next next week.
My only other issue with it, however, is I have NO idea how to quilt it! I need to decide, however, because I don;t want this just sitting around while I fail to make decisions. I could do the typical all over meander, but I really don't think I am feeling that for this quilt. I thought about doing close-together straight lines vertically, but I'm not sure that's how I want to go, either. I just don't know.
In other WiP News...
I've also decided to put my bed quilt on the back burner. I need to find new fabric for it, and I am going to wait until I go back out to Utah in July so I can actually go look at fabric in person.
I also need to start thinking about when to make Christmas Stockings. I made the Tree Skirt last year, and my goal was to have our Christmas stockings done this year. So I am adding those to the back burner list, too. "Back burner" meaning, I suppose, stuff that I want to make in the near future but they are only in the preparation stage.
One other project that I am thinking I need to get started on if I want to get them done in time is a teacher gift for my twins Preschool teachers. I am thinking of doing embroidered tote bags similar to this one.
Other things I have been thinking about that I want to add to my TO DO list are secrets! I have at least two ideas for Christmas gifts for people that I need to start deciding on, as well. But again, I am waiting till I get to Utah to decide on the specifics of those.
