I really enjoyed last year’s finish along, but when the goal party started for the first quarter this year, I completely missed it. Luckily I have some time for quilting this quarter and some ideas of what I want to do.
- A scrappy quilt in browns, greens and golds, to use the fabrics in my stash that don’t
really fit my current quilting style. I am really really not such a scrap quilt person, and when I do go scrappy, it is a very controlled, so this quilt may turn out to be a challenge. However, I was inspired by a post at Quilty Folk, where Audrey talk about how she loves her random scrap quilt despite it not starting out as one of her favorites. I hope mine will turn out to be similarly appealing. I’ll either use something similar to her quilt’s design, or possibly something a bit more like this Chinese Coin quilt that I found over at A Day in May.
- Two wall hangings using the Stupendous Stitching techniques. I had so much fun with my last project, and I have three fabrics already chosen. If last week had not been so stressful, I might have one underway already.
A quilt top using these gorgeous fabrics that have been calling to me.
I think I found the perfect pattern to showcase them. I want to use this block, designed by Christine Barnes at Artistical Alchemy. I may try to get this ombre fabric as well. I love the effect in her blocks.
That’s probably already far more than I can manage in one quarter, but there is also a slim chance for another top based on scraps. It would use up my brighter scraps and florals. It will probably depend on how much I end up liking the other scrap quilt…or not.
