I’m “working” on four quilts now. My queen size nightmare bento box quilt, Kiddo’s green bobeep quilt, Honeybun’s quilt and now a baby quilt for a June baby. Oh, actually five because I’m trying to learn how to use a paper piecing program so I can make some Destiny’s Edge lap quilts. Don’t place your orders yet, I’m terrible at applique and that may end up being the method of greatest ease.
My bento box is in a box, waiting for a time when I feel like undoing everything I’ve done already because I royally fucked it up. There’s just no getting around it. This picture is from around six months ago. I just can’t bring myself to work on it knowing that I messed up as bad as I did.
Kiddo’s green quilt is basted and ready for me to start quilting it but I feel like I need to put my focus onto the fourth project just to make sure that it’s done in time. I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out and I’m debating trying out my new machine and walking foot and just doing it that way but I feel like I would need a lot more practice before I work on the quilt itself.
Honeybun’s quilt is planned and the fabric has been purchased but this is as far as I’ve gotten. It’s the fabric on the left by the way, I didn’t take a picture of all the fabrics together apparently. My main thought for her room has always been California sunset and I think I’m well on my way with the palette I chose.
I’ve worked on it for 4 days or so. I’ve got all (but one) the blocks done and Benj helped me to better spread out the colors so it wasn’t too clumpy. I’ve got rows waiting to be assembled and then I’ll sew those together to finish. I still need to do one more block because I was a little tight on my measurements. I need one more 6×6 square of the dark green. Seems like a silly thing to have to go back to JoAnn’s for but that’s the predicament I’m in.
I heart all of yall’s faces and I hope to get this particular quilt done before the baby’s born 😀
