I am all over the place. Working on four different quilts which is very unusual for me. I’m normally a monogamous quilter – one project and then onto the next. But suddenly I find myself working on four all at the same time. It is stressing me out just a little. But one stitch at a time and all that.
Rather than stress you out with details of everything I have to do (trust me, it’s exhausting just thinking about it), I’ll just focus on two of the quilts today!
First up is a bit of an update on the Just My Type patterns and charity quilt. The blocks have started rolling in and are looking so great! I received 9 today (awesome post day – 12 packages, all filled with blocks and fabric-y goodness!).
I have worked out a layout for the quilt – it’s looking like this (thinking of adding the word “Comfort” to the back).
Obviously the colours of the words are just representations as everyone is choosing their own colours and fabrics. I am using the Simply Color for the top and bottom borders though. And I fibbed. I’m doing two of these quilts (one lowercase, one upper) so that makes five quilts total I have on the go. Good Lord. What is wrong with me?!
With so many blocks coming in and feedback from testers, it means I will have the Just My Type alphabets ready to list in my shop in the next few days! I just need to do a little bit of tweaking and they are good to go!
Also coming soon – I have numbers and punctuation to go with the alphabets! These are yet to be tested though so will be released a little bit after the alphabets (feel free to raise your hand if you want to test numbers and punctuation!).
Next is my very first quilt for do.good Stitches. I took on the role as host of the Care Circle and so I was up first for January. The girls all sent their blocks in very speedily so I have been able to put together the top and back already!
Unfortunately I do not have pictures yet of both the top and the back because the weather was not cooperating. So here’s the next best thing. A pic of it basted at nighttime. Yeah, the inside at night time pic is better than the windy day pics I attempted.
The other quilts are for Nan’s 90th next month. They are coming together slowly but surely. Hope to have more of an update on those next week!
And I think that’ll do me for now! I’m off to get started on the quilting of the Charming Stars. Wish me luck!
