not sure what will happen to them all now, I expect they will be put in a box or bag for a while till I decide whether to make them into one big quilt , will also have to consider whether to add sashing or not, I expect that will depend on how big I want it to be. decisions decisions.
I have also constructed the 12 blocks for my CQJP and Helen called yesterday to approve them! Not sure what I would have said and done if they did not meet her expectations, probably told her to do it herself
I hope it is not going to be too pink! have included a bit of grey but this is what she asked for. The stitching and embellishments she wants in the same colours, will see how it materialises. Glad I have them all made.
Now to my projects for 2014
I did not realise till I sat down what I had committed myself to.
1. finish of the Tula Pink challenge
2 CQJP 2014
3 do something with the economy blocks
4 quilt the stack and slash wallhanging
5 I have signed up to the hexie BOM for this year.
6 Have the chicken run blocks from R Glewe to do, these are foundation pieced so will have to master foundation piecing first, there are only 3 in the series.
7 I have just bought the instructions for the aiming for accuracy 2013 quilt, this really appeals as it has blocks of different sizes which I have wanted to do for a while.
8 Craftsy BOM with Laura Nownes from 2013 is also on the list, this has 10 not 12 blocks but this is one project I might pass on.
9 Craftsy Mickey Depre pieced hexies project.
10 I could not resist buying the hardanger SAL from Mabel (sorry not sure of her surname)
11 Last but not least is the round robin I joined with embroidery friends, not sure what has happened with this as so far I have only had 3 to stitch on, it seems to have come to a standstill, hopefully the lady holding it up will be in touch soon.
numbers 6,7,8,9,and 10 have not even been started yet
Well I think that is it but no doubt I will see other things I want to do too.
Tomorrow I am at the modern quilters group meeting. I have bought a tablet as we are going to be shown how to use pinterest and similar sites, not having an ipad, lap top or modern phone I would not have been able to take part so with tablet in hand I will boldly attempt to follow what we are told, do not hold out for much though as these contraptions are all a bit beyond me, will make plenty of notes so hopefully will get the knack in the end. I am also hoping to get some advice on my stack and slash quilting, have got some yellow hand quilting cotton to use, struggled to find the cotton and when I did could not get the colour I wanted, Gutermans is the only make I could find and they do not do a large range but I think the yellow will work
Will let you know how tomorrow goes
