Partially PiecedMost of these are the ones that were "left behind" last year. There are a few new ones, but most of these are old ones that I neglected to work on. These are the ones that take up the most space because there are still a lot of parts to keep track of.
1. a few postage stamp blocks. I am in no hurry to finish this one.
2. Raggy brick quilt. I couldn't find the project to take a new photo. I know it is in my studio somewhere.
3. These didn't move out of the container either Since all the blocks are already quilted, this would be a quick finish.
4. This is Bonnie's tobacco road pattern with the pieces larger. I hope to get this into at least flimsy stage.
6. This is canned pears from Fig tree. I love this quilt. I have the columns done...but...If you go larger, the columns aren't the same size. I just need to figure this out and piece the checkerboard border.
7. This is another project I intend to work on this year. I did get it out to make calculations on what I needed to do to finish. I wanted to use it for leader-enders but my foot has an edge guide. I can't sew corner to corner with this on.
10. This is an oldie. I am not sure if I will ever finish it. I no longer have a relationship with the person I started to make the quilt for. This certainly put out the fire to finish it.
11. This is Roll, Roll Cotton Bowl (another Bonnie mystery). All the units are done, but I haven't started assembly.
12. This is the Orca Bay mystery from Bonnie. I only have the triangle string blocks to finish. My sister assembled hers in 2014 and it is amazing. I will make some progress on this quilt in 2015, but probably not a finish.
13. Ellen advised me to pitch this version of swoon, but I think it will be a colorful picnic blanket. I didn't intend for it to be so pink, but WOW! I have plenty of pink for the sashing as the pattern is written. I am wondering if I should use scraps of other colors to tone it down.
14. I have 2 nested churn dash blocks (love that pattern by the way)
15. I have a LOT of Farmer's Wife blocks.
16. Grand Illusion Mystery from Bonnie 2014- I have decided to go with the solid sashing. The checkerboard wasn't working for me. Perhaps it was just the colors I chose. I may go with 2 1/2" sashing strips with a 4 patch in the middle. I haven't auditioned it yet.
I hope this is the end of the parade. I have found some other quilts ("additions") and I edited Part 1 and Part 2. I have to admit I was a little depressed when the total list climbed over 50. In an effort to keep my studio organized, I increased my goal of finishes for the year.
The happy part of this story- there are only a few quilts on the partially pieced list that I started last year. That means fewer stalled projects!! I may not have gotten them all quilted, but at least they are put together.
I hope you enjoyed my colorful quilt parade. Hopefully I will have a few less to report next year.
