Keepin' On Keepin' On

Just last week I posted about my last quilt finish for the Q2 Finish-A-Long at She Can Quilt and while I was able to come up with two finishes last quarter, to be honest, I need more.  All of my craft room shelf space is taken up by piles of unfinished projects and I want that space.
I also want more finished quilts.

SO - here is my current list of Works In Progress that I am going to focus on for the third quarter of the Finish-A-Long:

1. A Weekend in the Country
I can't seem to find a good backing fabric.  I have some leftovers from the front but all together I don't think it will be enough to make a backing large enough.  Also, because of the HUGE size I will even have to piece the batting together which scares me - but I can do it!

2. A's Quilt
I have everything I need to finish this little guy.  I should just get to it!

3. Irish Breakfast
I need to piece these blocks together and then I'm thinking I'd like to do some kind of applique border, I just don't know what yet.

4. Milk
So this little bottle isn't even a whole block.  It takes five to make one block - and I want the whole quilt to be made of  these blocks.  I have a few more milk bottles partially sewn in the stack here but I still have a long way to travel on this project.

5. Yet to be Named Dark/Warm/Saturated/Jewel Toned New York Beauty Medallion Quilt
This quilt just started on a whim when I wanted to learn foundation paper piecing  and now it is just moving along.

Now this list is out in the Universe and I have to at least try to make good on it.  Time for me to get to work!


  1. Oh my goodness - your NYB thumbnail drew me in and I love it, but also love the Weekend in the Country, it's like a glorious tiled floor and also the Irish Breakfast. Such diverse projects, good luck.

    1. Thanks so much Sheila - and, yes, I have a different quilt to work on for whatever mood I'm in!

  2. Wow. You are a quilting machine! They are lovely, just like you!

    1. Takes one to know one! (Lovely Ladies that is, which you and I both do since we are the same person.)
