First of June and am happy with my progess

I am feeling pretty good about how much I accomplished in May.  It felt like it was slow going in April but then I got busy and made a decision to just 'do it'.  This is a cute kid's quilt that I bought as a kit and it is finished and bound and ready for donation.   Very clean and crisp looking and easy to make using fat quarters.

I am adding in this picture because a friend that I was in this purple swap with just finished hers and wanted to know what year we swapped the blocks.  I had labelled my quilt and was able to pull it out and tell her 1998.  Wow, that was quite awhile ago! 

This cute little child's quilt was made from leftovers from one I made last summer.  The top was pieced during the winter and it is now in the 'finished' pile.

A member of our Fraser Valley Modern Guild is having a workshop and collecting pillowcases for kids attending camp this summer that have been involved in a fire and have lived through the horrible experience of being burnt.  She wants each child to get a pillowcase.  My friend Marge whose husband is a retired firefighter donated some fabric and I also went shopping to find some fun, happy prints.  I am contributing on behalf of myself and my friends to this cause. 

This springfling quilt was a kit from Connecting Threads last fall and was on the B-line last week.  It is now quilted and bound and ready for donation.

A pile of some of my finished quilts... looks like I have been productive!

My current project needs to be finished by Canada Day.  The pattern is for a bench pillow but I don't have a bench!  So, it will be a table topper or a wall hanging.  So far, lots of fun and I have 3D pinwheels to make and add and all the appliqué stitching to do and then quilting and binding.

My white board is all cleaned off but by the time I wrote my list of projects I want to get done, it looks almost overwhelming again.  At least the 'needs quilting' side is much shorter.  I have one on the B-line, one waiting for the B-line, one waiting for me to stitch with my walking foot and one waiting for backing and quilting.  I also have a few projects for friends that are waiting, patiently but, with the rain predicted in the next few days, am hoping for some good production!

  1. You certainly have been busy. They all look very nice; I especially like what you are doing on the O Canada one. Great work.
