Progress feels great, it really does.


None.  Sad.

Finished Quilt Tops

1.  Batik Squares - no progress
2. Snowballs (or fire and ice balls) - no progress
3.  Strawberry fields postage stamps - no progress
4. Halloween wall hanging - no progress.

The Rest

1.  Flying Geese - No progress.
2.  Pinwheel sampler - Sashing complete, needs an outer border and I'm debating adding some tiny pinwheels to it.

3.  Daisy Doodles - Need to add borders - had a last minute substitution for the inner border

4.  Spring flowers - No progress.
5.  Stash busting triangles - No progress
6.  Stash Busting wedges - No progress.

7.  Stash busting hourglasses - Started work on this and I have about 60 of the hourglasses complete.  Then I was reading the pattern and learned I misread when I cut my squares.  I have 332.  That's how many medium fabrics I needed.  I need another 332 squares (light/dark).  I'm going to aim for a total of 664 trying to get a good mix of values, but I'm not going to go crazy trying to get the right number of light/dark and medium.
8.  Batik plus sign quilt -Most of the blocks are complete now.  Just need to be trimmed and sewn up.

9.  Man's 1/2 square triangle quilt for Victoria's Quilts.

I really love how this quilt turned out.  I got all crazy and laid it out on the floor at Mom and Dad's making sure all the puppies were right side up.  I even got a little nutty keeping colors on the same diagonal.  I just have 4 rows to add, I ran out of time at the end of the retreat and couldn't finish it up.  I'll finish it next week at the group's meeting.


10.  String quilt.  A lady at the retreat brought in a bin of her scraps and strings.  I went through and picked out everything that looks remotely interesting, combined them with mine and I've started on this.  Sorry for the bad lighting.
