Current Works in Progress


 The first four are my long term projects:

#1 - LA PASSION HEXAGON QUILT  - Pattern by Grit Kovacs

Grit's original version of La Passion

My progress as of October 2020:

Update:  April 2024 - progress shot.

I'm getting there.  A LONG way to go but it's enjoyable, contemplative, and portable.

#2 - 365 Challenge Quilt
Pattern by Kathryn Kerr of Australia

My assembled center.  I do have a pile of blocks not yet sewn together.  I'm plugging along.  I didn't get it done in the first 365 days of 2019.  It would be great to get it done by Dec 31 2020.  We'll see!

update:  May 2024
Since we left Victoria in June of 2022 I haven't touched this project.  It finally arrived in Tennessee with the locker contents in 2023.  But with so much else going on with opening the business it has sat but I'm hoping that will change shortly.  I actually saw a post online about block organization using small paper bags.  The pieces for these blocks are so small that I thought this was a great idea and I bought some from Amazon.  And I can write on them!

This is the current state of my 365 quilt as of May 20, 2024.

#3 - AVES, also by Kathryn Kerr

And my progress to date:

Update:  May 2024
This has officially become a UFO and arrived with the locker contents with the 365 Challenge quilt.  I will at some point pick it up again and am trying hard not to feel badly about ignoring it.

Update:  May 2024
This one was also included in the locker contents and is at home with me and I have actually had some great down time adding more hand stitches to it. 🩷

These four projects have no end date in mind.  Aside from those long term projects, I have been working diligently at finishing my UFOs (unfinished works in progress) for the past two years.  The cupboards in my sewing room need to become uncrammed and creatively I would love to start on some new projects.

Quilt tops done and ready for quilting:

Update:  May 2024
Both of the above projects were quilted in Tennessee.  One is for sale (top) and the bottom one has just been sold.

Current Piecing Projects:

These pictures are not of my progress but promotional pictures of the designs (Fons & Porter and Bonnie Hunter/Quiltville).  My piecing projects are pre cut and in bins ready for the RV adventure to commence beginning of July 2022.  In other words, they are going on the road with me during my sabbatical.

Boxy Stars (By Bonnie Hunter/Quiltville)

Update May 2024:  The Boxy Stars quilt has been finished and gifted to a family member.

New works in progress as of May 2024:

This is a baby quilt for some friends from church.  I have completed the blocks but just need to complete the quilt top, add borders and get it quilted.

May 2024:  I'm remaking Montenegro using Moda fabrics.  I also taught this as a class and one of my students has finished her quilt top in the same fabrics and I have it in queue for quilting. Time to get it finished!

Chilhowie mystery quilt from Quiltville.

I want to finish this quilt top soon.  I've purchased a custom quilting design from Sweet Dreams Studio and I'm itching to get stitchin!  This is just one element of the set.  It should be fun to quilt out and I really want to get it from the back burner back to the front burner!
