WIP Wednesday

Here are my projects in progress for the first week of January, 2012:

1. The grandma quilt. I started back handquilting on it last weekend. This project has been hanging around my house for a couple of years, not to mention the 50 or 60 years it hung around Grandma and Mama's house!

The quilting doesn't show up too well in pictures so I took several in the early morning sunlight hoping to capture it.

My goal is to quilt at least 15 minutes a day. Over time this will add up.

2. Jacob's Ladder Quilt Along:

I've finished 26 blocks and trying to do a few blocks every week. Here are a couple of blocks:

3. Quilter's Block of the Month Christmas quilt. Here are the first 4 blocks.

These two haven't been started yet:

4. A baby boy quilt. My cousin who already has a set of twin girls about 2 years old is expecting a baby boy (just one this time) in March and I plan to make a baby quilt for her. The stacked coins pattern is my go to pattern for baby quilts. I think I've made 4 girl quilts in that pattern and am looking forward to using some of my blue fabric for this one.

5. I'm also thinking of a college graduation gift that will be needed in May! Just thought about this this A.M.!

I so love your Grandma Quilt!

I'm getting my fabrics together to begin the BOM you're doing. Its ending time is perfect for making a Christmas quilt, so that's what I'm going to do too. I have a couple of fabrics that are specifically Christmas, and enough others to match, so that's my project for myself for Christmas this year! I think I can catch up on those 4 blocks this month.

I'm also making a quilted wall hanging for my dad & stepmom, celebrating their 30th anniversary. And my son is getting married this fall, so it's a quilt for them. I'm ambitious, if nothing else!

Thanks for your inspiration!

I really like the quilt top fabrics from your mama and grandmama...I have never tried the Baptist fan pattern...what is your quilting frame brand?? it seems to be small enough for a room??? I have one but it it bulky and I have not used it in years so I use my round 16" hoop...
