So this has been an unusual month for me. I started out with much vigor and determination, and promptly sewed through my finger. My heavy duty machine spent most of the the last four weeks in shop, I just got it back yesterday. I've done some piecing but not on the two tops that were listed as needing piecing in my report last month. I also managed to sandwich Chocolate Covered Cherries and tried to do Briners' Picnic, too but I can't find the backing I had set aside for it. That prompted an effort to get my act together and clean up the mess that used to be my storage area. It's coming along. I still having found the backing for that quilt.
So as we head into March things are much as they were on February 1st. I have added one thing to my list. I selected a thread painted piece I started in a class with Susan Brubaker Knapp (she's a wonderful teacher) I'm never going to use it as wall hanging for myself, but I'd like to get it finished for the ECQG Small Treasures Auction. It's mostly finished, just an hour or so of thread painting left and then some light quilting and facing and it's done. I want to hand it in at the next show meeting. Special thanks to Susan for giving me permission to donate one of her designs.
Quilts tops that need basting, quilting and finishing:
Chocolate Covered Cherries (pin basted and ready to go under the needle)
Sherwood Forest Romance
Briners' Picnic (yes, still)
WIPS that need piecing:
Hunter's Star (I've started sketching border possibilities, we'll see where this one goes in March)
Green and white chain quilt (I did get the white blocks cut and the rows pieced, I just need to get it all together)
Round Barn (needs thread painting, quilting, facing)
