WIP 1.19.11

Last night was the PMQG meeting and we got our next challenge.... well actually I picked the challenge!  A contest was held for our group and everyone was supposed to submit an idea for a challenge. My idea was a monochromatic quilt. A few days later The Modern Quilt Guild announced that as their challenge too so I thought for sure I wouldn't win. But, it seems to have worked in my favor! 

My prize? This sweet little Hello Betty honeybun! *squee**

Oh and I have to coordinate the challenge too. Guess I better start ironing out the details.

On to the works in progress....

I finally took my daughters quilt to the new (empty) house so I could lay it out for sewing. It's missing all the white that goes in between those pieces, but I didn't have the patience to do that at the time. Hopefully I don't regret that decision when I try to put it together! I need that design wall I was asking you all about last week.


The PS I Quilt Postage Stamp quilt is coming along. My next step is to piece these 2.5 inch strips into blocks. I need to do a little bit of math and planning if I want to keep my rainbow effect. I'm kinda wishing I had just gone scrappy!
  
I'm putting together hexagons for my Spicing Up the Kitchen Swap partner. I'm not sure how much I can say about what I'm doing with these and how much is supposed to be a surprise. But these have been fun to put together. I'm still working on the layout.

I should be getting my swap partner for the Make Mine Modern Swap anytime now. This is the mosaic I put together for my partner. I'm excited to start coming up with more ideas for my partner!


I got this fabric for some bathroom curtains. The plan has been derailed though. I wanted to make a roman shade, but found out that you need to use a wood board to mount it in the window. I can't do that because if I remove the curtain rods there will be holes and I have no idea what colors they painted the walls.  So I'm on to plan two which is basic curtains.  I just need to get back to the house for new measurements.

And no, I haven't even ordered the fabric for the windows that I did the poll on. Things are starting to catch up to me and I'm feeling overwhelmed!

The move is tentatively scheduled for next week. I'm so ready. I just want to get this over with! I've almost finished painting the master bedroom and that should be the end of the work until we are in.

Yikes, moving and sewing? That sounds stressful! I hope your move goes okay next week, moving is one of those things I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy because I fully despise moving. Anyway...I really love your daughter's quilt, all laid out. I can tell it's going to be just lovely. And you hexies? Swoon. Hope I'm your partner :) I really like how colorful and cheerful your mosaic is, too. My advice is you're feeling overwhelmed? Take a step back, have a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and take a breather. Good luck! :)

Good luck with the move! Our next move is still several years off (we think) and I'm already dreading it. I'm looking forward to seeing your postage stamp quilt when it's done.

Ooh, I like your postage stamp quilt. That is going to be so pretty with those fabrics.

Oh I love those hexies! I cannot wait to start to see your Central Park Postage Stamp blocks come together! I was at my LQS this weekend, and they had a Central Park FQ bundle, and it definitly made its way home with me :)

LOVE the layout of your daughter's quilt! It's going to look wonderful.

Good luck with the move. I'm one of those weirdos who loves moving. Especially when you spring for professional packers so you don't have to swim in boxes for weeks beforehand...

So many projects, so little time. Glad to see all your work. I'm trying to come up with a way to hang a roman shade without the board. We'll see. It's made, but not hung yet. Too many distractions. Lane
