WIP Progress–March 2013

31 Mar

March was a very busy month for us. My daughter started daycare, I solidified my work plans (I start working full time April 15), I did some contract work and we had a first birthday to celebrate (more on that to come). So between all the personal stuff and the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild business this month I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked.

Previous WIP update for reference.

1. Skill Builder BOM at Pile O’ Fabric

Not started. I’m actually still really sad about this because I keep pushing it to the bottom of the pile but then I see all the finished blocks and wish I was making progress. I’m going to dedicate at least 2 nights this month to this project. Hopefully more, but at least 2.

2. Lucky Stars BOM at Don’t Call me Betsy

Still have not done the March block and April comes out tomorrow. I’ll spend an evening this month getting both finished. No change from last month.

3.  Zig Zag Quilt for Addie

I was SO close to getting this done first her birthday. Once I decided what kind of quilting I wanted I realized that it was going to take some time. I could have done less and finished it but I decided to do it right. The result is about 4 more hours of quilting to go and then binding. I also still need to decide if I’ll do the binding light pink or light grey. Thoughts?

4. Simply Solids: a modern {bee} at Sew at Home Mommy

I am up to date with blocks for others. I just received my fabric for the April block on Thursday so I will get it done this week.

I am STILL waiting on one block for mine so I might just charge ahead without it.

5. Small Private Bee

I received fabric to make two blocks for another bee mate, they will be garden fence blocks. I hope to get them done this week.

We just received instructions for the April blocks. Also May is my month to quilt so I will need to come up with my idea by the end of the month.

14. Charity quilt for the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild

One of our lovely members donated a FQ stack of fabric, so we all got 5 fat eights to make two 12.5” blocks for a charity project. Here is my fabric:

All things considered not a terrible month. I also finished the blanket for Ava which wasn’t even on my WIP list, made a trading card for my sewing buddy, and spent a bunch of time working in my sewing room putting the finishing touches on my organization.
