So many projects, so little time...

So little time TO SEW it seems ;-) Do you ever just take a minute to assess all your WIP's and then feel  slightly ill because there are so many of them? I already know that I like piecing way better than I like quilting but I didn't realize how many projects I had let stack up. In order to hold myself accountable I'm sharing them with you! So the first project I'm going to finish is this Lucky Penny baby quilt that I'm making as a commission for a friend. It's another scrappy trip with 8 strips - I love that pattern so much. The fabric at the bottom is Mural from the Lucky Penny line, it has all the nursery colors in it. This might be the most fashionable baby quilt I've ever made!
This is another baby quilt made with HST's, made just for fun. I love this print from Dear Stella and wanted to use those colors to play around it. This was inspired by this post over at A Quilter's Table and the gorgeous HST quilt that Debbie made. I'd like to make a bigger lap sized quilt with larger blocks. Just so fun to play around with!

I used Christina's measurements and tutorial from her post over at Whip Up, super easy. I used 8.5" starting squares and trimmed them to 5.5". The rotating cutting mat is seriously the best invention ever for trimming half square triangles. If you're going to make them with any frequency you need one!
I saw this tiny table runner at one of my LQS and came home and whipped one out - totally not my style or colors but it just seems so springy and fun! Plus it will fit exactly on the little 4 square Expedit in our living room. Chances are good it'll seem way to bright and out of place with everything else in our house but oh well! I'm going to use a lime green binding so it will be (kind of) reversible.
Two color wheel quilts that have been on my to-sew list for EVER. Or maybe it just feels that way. Either way the are getting DONE. Oh and I'm raising such a mini-me that my 3 year old looked at these and said "are these ready for binding yet"...!! Uhmm, no honey, Mom's getting there. Thanks for paying such good attention to the process though!
Mini Flying Geese quilt! These were my first flying geese and I was feeling brave/excited enough to use some of my Katie Jump Rope stash. I am thrilled to report all my geese actually have points! Whee! I think it's a little busy with the text background print but overall I'm really happy with it. It's 14.5"x18"
Chicopee mini quilt and mug rugs. Again, just made these for fun, messing around with some Chicopee scraps and black yarn-dyed Essex Linen. This little mini is 13"x16".

Whew. So I have everything sandwiched and ready to baste. Then comes the quilting. I'm hoping to be back sooner rather than later with some actual finishes!! Wish me luck :-)
