In the sewing room, no. 1
This year I’ve decided to keep track of my 2013 sewing and quilting goals in a post separate from my yearly goals. I have loved reading many of the link-up progress posts every Wednesday, so I’m going to join the party and post on Wednesdays.
Here’s what I’m working on right now:
I got a stack of 6 inch fabric squares last year at the Utah County Modern Quilt Group and we were challenged to make a half square triangle quilt out of it. I decided to make a bunch of “arrows” with mine. I need to get the rest of the blocks put together so I can lay them all out and see if what I have in my head will look right.
I also have a small stack of diamond strips waiting to become the next star in my Ellen’s Sewing Basket quilt. Time to knock it out!
I cut squares a couple of weeks ago for a simple sawtooth quilt I want to make. The colors are so happy, it’s a perfect project for winter.
I need to piece a backing for my postage stamp quilt and FINALLY get that done.
I also need to get the binding on a quilt I made last year so it can be loved by my little guy.
And last, but certainly not least, I have work to do on the Scrappy Swoon Quilt Along I’m hosting. I’m in love with this print I cut into for some of my background pieces:
I have three new quilts I’m anxious to start on, but until some of these projects are finished I’m going to resist. I’m also trying hard to resist the Scrappy Trip-along frenzy, which looks like so much fun but which would also derail me from other projects.
And that’s it for the week. If I make progress on all these I’ll be thrilled.
Thanks for visiting,

Lots of great projects going on there.
Love your projects and your fabric choices…can’t wait to see more in 2013!
I really like the handwriting/copybook fabric at the bottom of your post. Happy quilting in 2013!
Good for you for listing out your wips. I find that really helps. Good luck moving forward on them!
