Here's a rundown of many of the projects that I tell myself are still Works in Progress! No, it's not complete. Newer ones are likely to be near the top. You can click the name of each project to see all the posts on it so far.

The Patchwork Barn is the 2018 BOM designed by Edyta Sitar for The Quilt Show. TQS members can get the pattern here. I'm planning my version in mostly neutral taupe and grey on white, with a few touches of soft green and gold.
Technicolor Turkey -- A multicolour version of Bonnie Hunter's Talkin' Turkey blocks, sewn in conjunction with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for 2017.
El Camino SoCal -- New for Summer 2017 and moving fast, this is a fusible applique adaptation of Nancy Rink's design "In Remembrance," from her book El Camino Real.
Aunt Millie's Garden -- This is sort of a paper cut, silhouette version of the applique design by Piece o'Cake. And, it's another red and "white" quilt too.

Moth in the Window -- Because I clearly don't have enough Bonnie Hunter projects on the go, this is another one, from her latest book Addicted to Scraps. For years I've wanted to use pink as a neutral, so this is it!

Prairie Star -- This foundation paper pieced quilt was designed by Judy Niemeyer. For a while I was calling it "Riviera Star," based on the fabrics, but now it is back to Prairie Star. I've changed my mind about the colours many times, but now the plan is frozen, the fabric is cut, and the project is moving forward at last.
Rose Boll -- One of many Bonnie Hunter designs currently in progress, this is a two colour, red and white version of Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll, from Bonnie's book, String Fling.
Wild & Goosey -- adapted from Bonnie Hunter's design in her latest book, Addicted to Scraps. Instead of Bonnie's bright yellow constant fabric, I will use Kona Flame, a dark orange/red. I've simplified the piecing, and plan to make it queen sized.

Cheddar Broken Dishes -- based on a vintage quilt featured in the October 2016 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. The mostly indigo and white broken dishes units are set into cheddar nine patch blocks. Mine is slightly simplified again, and slightly enlarged.
Gwennie Medallion, "Olive It" -- A challenge, and challenging, quilt along run by Lori and friends. Five rounds, five clues to be interpreted as we like, all in the liberated improv style of Gwen Marston. Mine was inspired by a silly joke on the radio, on National Olive Day.
Brinton Hall -- A medallion quilt with a combination of machine and English Paper piecing. The pattern is by Leigh Latimore, in Quiltmania 107 & 108. Leigh's quilt was inspired by a historic English quilt made around 1800 by Anna Brereton. My quilt will have my own stamp as well!
Vintage Blooms -- A set of 20 free stitchery designs being offered in 2016 by Gay at Sentimental Stitches. I've decided to try them in whitework, and I have an original quilt setting designed as well.
Little Wooly Baskets -- Another free 2016 BOM, this one offered by Dawn Heese at Linen Closet Designs. It is wool applique on a cotton background.

Allietare -- Bonnie Hunter's 2015-16 Mystery Quilt. It was the first year I joined in, and I was very happy with both the experience and the result. The blocks are done, I just have to dedicate some time to sew them together!

Camping -- I started this foundation paper pieced quilt in the summer of 2015. I am undecided about how much I like the technique, but I think it looks good, so for now I'll call it a WIP. The paper piecing design is by Cyrille Zellweger.

Aloha Kisses -- A larger (queen-sized) version of Carrie Nelson's quilt X-Rated, from her book Schnibbles Times Two. The fabrics are a mix of Hawaiian-themed prints and batiks.

So Happy Together -- Started back in the blurry mists of time and revived in 2015, this wall quilt is built around three cross stitch designs by Jim Shore, with an original pieced and appliqued setting.
Hanami -- Hanami is the Japanese word for cherry blossom viewing. This all-pink Tree of Life quilt has been adapted from Audrey's trees at Quilty Folk.
My Country House -- The 2015 BOM designed by Lynette Anderson for The Quilt Show. My version is 3/4 scale so it will make a nice wallhanging.
Down in the Garden -- This stitchery quilt was designed by Leanne Beasley. I love the mix of techniques -- some piecing, a little applique, and a lot of stitchery. To make it pop even more, I added some extra colour with Tsukineko inks!
Jacks and Cats -- This fun quilt is from the Fall 2014 issue of Primitive Quilts, and was designed by Emily McGlothlen. It has a little of everything, felt applique, needleturn applique, and wonky piecing!
L'Herbier -- An embroidered wall quilt designed by Nathalie Méance of La Fée Pirouette. It was her 2010 BOM, but after three years in my stash I finally started it in 2014!
Best Friends Forever -- A quilt that combines stitchery designs by Rosalie Quinlan with my own original English paper pieced setting.

Texas Star -- Inspired by a vintage 1940s quilt that was featured in Judy Martin's Scrap Quilts (1985). The piecing is done, it's high time to finish it!

  1. I am adopting your resolution as my own. It's certainly one I can keep!

    1. LOL, thanks Mary Ellen. It's nice to have a sure thing once in a while, isn't it?


I'm told Blogger has been bouncing some comments, so if it happens to you I'm sorry! But the settings look right so I can't explain it. In any case, thanks for reading!
