This post is linked to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
1. Jacob's Ladder Quilt. I finished all the blocks and got them sewn together into rows for a finished top/flimsie. This week I am working on the pieced back so that I can get this quilt pin basted and then start the FMQing. I'm trying really hard to use what I have on hand and so the backing will be pieced from 4 different pieces of fabric that coordinate with the quilt. All four of the fabrics are used in the front of the quilt also.
2. The baby boy stacked coins quilt. Its ready to quilt, but no progress this week. The machine and my time were both concentrated on finishing the Jacob's Ladder quilt top. After I pin baste the Jacob's Ladder quilt, I will quilt both of them.
3. Cheddar Bow Ties Leaders and Enders project:I have 60-some done and have gone through a small fraction of the zillion scraps I have in search of pieces big enough to use for this. Just love playing with my scraps! Each one has a story and takes me down memory lane. The criteria for a scrap to be used for a cheddar bow tie is that it has to be 2 inches wide and I need 6 1/2 inches in length. It doesn't have to be all in one piece. I sit down while watching tv with Hubbie with a ruler and end up with a pile to be used. For each block I need two 2 inch squares and two 1 1/4 inch squares.
I still haven't decided how big this quilt will be but since the blocks are only 3 inches (finished), I don't think it will be too big.
4. Hand quilting the Baptist fans on the Grandma quilt: No progress :o(
I have my eye on SEVERAL new projects, but I must finish at least the first 2 quilts on this list before I allow any more projects to start!
