And now my "Works in Progress" as we head towards the end of 2023:

Pineapple Blossom (was going to be for Maui until they cancelled quilt requests)

I haven't made much progress on my 365 Quilt.  It arrived with our locker contents in the spring but I've been very busy getting ready to open the shop, so sewing hasn't been top of mind.

And I'm still working on my eternal La Passion Quilt and progress has been slow, also because of the reason stated above.

There has been some piecing in 2023 but no quilting completions until I have my storefront space and machines set up.  Then I will take a victory lap.  For now, it's just piecing.

"Sew in Love" quilt - done in a class in Tennessee.  Needs borders and quilting.  Soon!

I did this class with my friend Sandi at Lana's Quilts and Sew Much More.  It is an Edyta Sitar pattern.  It was challenging but we got our blocks done.  Now for the borders.  I have everything cut out.  I just have to get it done.

I fit in stitching every so often and sometimes take it to church with me for in between the service and the afternoon Midrash.  I'm currently working on the outer blue border.

I started this Time After Time sew-a-long with Sharon Blackmore of Prairie Quilt Militia back in fall when we arrived here in Tennessee.  The fabrics were purchased at Lana's also.  I am very near finishing.  I just have to press, trim and add the borders.  I'm excited to get my long arm machines set up so I can get back to quilting these treasures.  I already have a recipient in mind for this one.

Aside from these projects I have done two baby quilts.

The lighting is bad in the RV but I hope you can get the idea.  This is "Boxy Stars", a free pattern by Bonnie Hunter.  There is a funny story attached to this one.  I prepared this kit before we left Victoria.  I thought it would be a good one for RV sewing.   I made two blocks before we left to test my colors.  I did the remaining blocks months later (August 2022) and I made them with the fabric values in the wrong place.  So I initially thought I had 2 blocks wrong.  But I in fact had 2 right and the rest wrong.

Do you see how the value placement on the two on the left makes darker star points?  That's what I was going for.  And since I had precut this 'kit' to take on the road, I didn't have any fabric to fix the problem, so I just had to roll with it.  I figure the baby who receives this quilt won't know the difference.
