Like last time, I only have a few projects to enter Quarter 2
First Project: Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt
This project is carrying over from last quarter. I wasn't anticipating changing gears from machine quilting to hand quilting. The hand quilting slowed me down - but I'm LOVING the result of hand quilting! This one should be a finish since I only have the binding and the label to do. I'm getting excited to be able to snuggle up with this one on the couch. Almost there!
Second Project: Mom's Quilt
Third Project: Large Pouch Mother Day Presents
This is a very necessary project - my mothers day presents for my sister and mom. I want to make them zippered pouches using this tutorial. I'm crossing my fingers that I get these done with enough time to send them out for mother's day!
Fourth Project: Liam's Birthday Corner Quilt
Liam's birthday is in four months! Did I type that correctly? Yes, four months!!! My goodness, in four months he will be one year old. My heart can't keep up with how fast it flies by! For his first birthday I've wanted to give him his very own reading corner in the house. I have had this book since it was first published and I have been wanting to make one of the ABC quilts in it - but just haven't had the right motivation to start it until now. I just purchased the DMC floss I would need and finally I can start stitching! I'm looking forward to learning a few new stitches in this process as well!
Fifth Project: Baby Quilt
Friends of ours have just given birth to a baby, and since we will be on the Mainland during the summer - I wanted to make them a quilt to show how much we love them and are joyful in the blessing of this new addition to their family. They called this baby their "rainbow baby"... because it was a blessing from the Lord.
Sixth Project: Toy Bag
A good friend of mine recently gave me a birthday present wrapped in a fabric bag. I wanted to use this bag and change it into a drawstring bag for Liam's toys.
Here are my five projects for the Second Quarter of the Finish Along! Happy Sewing Everybody!
