Expected incoming fabrics arrived. No buyer's remorse on any of them! I'm going to start cutting them up this week, so at least half of them will be out of here within the next couple of weeks.
In addition to the FQs I blogged about yesterday, the third project in the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle arrived. The quilt is called Prairie Gathering, and the fabrics are absolutely wonderful! I'm really itching to start this one.
I really need to finish up a couple of items on my sewing table, so I can really hop into the Civil War projects in earnest. I could finish both of those in a couple of weekends if I'd put my mind to it. Might work on one over the long Memorial Day weekend. It's not a large quilt, but the backing would be a stash bust. I'm going to simply grid quilt it on the machine. Just need to get it squared and pinned. I can do it!
A few months back I pulled out the Brrrr Park to cut, and I still haven't done that. Might get that cut out next weekend as well. I want this quilt on my bed this Christmas, but that won't happen if I don't get it made. It's a gorgeous Minick & Simpson quilt out of their Winter fabric. I love love love this quilt! (Scroll down on the page to see the quilt.) I'm going to enlarge it to fit my bed.
I think I can significantly lower my numbers in the red just doing the above. Must stay focused!
Oh, oh, oh, oh -- I finished up my 100th basket block last night! I'm so excited! Of course, there are 191 more to go. I had this goal this week and I made it! I'll prep more of them as I'm cutting the Civil War fabrics, but I don't plan on stitching on them again at least for a month. It's okay. I have a plan and I'm sticking to it!! It has worked out well, though, to stitch them 20 at a time. Small goals; more accomplishments!
Why do I always pick these projects that are big and tedious? LOL.
