DWM 3/3/2014 Quilter’s ADD

Getting ready for a retreat next weekend. This is my project as we will have a work on anything session with a certified Quiltworx instructor, Eileen Eubanek. I’ve cut my own jelly roll strips as this is to hang next to my Glacier Star on the stairwell. It will have a blue black as well.

I've been sorting UFO’s, seeing if I can kit some up for the Guild’s Boutique since I am in charge of it this year. I unearthed these, but I’m not ready to give up on them, yet.

What to do with these? I thought I would do the Iron challenge at Missouri Star Quilt Company so bought the charm packs. I thought I would do a fractured quilt from the Material Obsession’s book, but . . . .

I’m also cutting up some Dr Seuss fat quarters to make this quilt – I think. . . .

Can I make a table topper out of this orphan? It’s too much trouble to make these blocks . . . . I’m not sure what to do with the rail fence blocks, another UFO that didn't sell at last year’s Boutique.

This doll bed is an estate sale find. I hope to fix it up to display doll quilts on for sale at the Boutique. It is waiting for my wood finishing room to warm up as it is 1 degree F. outside today and the finishing room has no heat!

This is playing with a UFO that didn’t sell at the Boutique last year. These are miss-made blocks (they should have a red triangle at each ”end”) that should make a doll quilt. There are enough pieces left in the UFO to make a king-size Kansas Troubles. Maybe this little quilt will help someone buy it.

I did finish up repairing and labeling two quilts for a friend. This one appears to be from the 30’s – at least the fabrics are. It is a Snow Crystals set in Streaks of Lightning. All the quilting knots are on the outside, not buried.

Maybe this week I can get something finished – HA!
Happy Quilting,
