Week in Progress #20

It's my b-day and I didn't accomplish much, but it doesn't matter because I am doing a giveaway to celebrate my b-day! So if you found your way over from Lee's Freshly Pieced Blog and you didn't know about the whole b-day thing check out my previous post "It's my birthday! giveaway" and enter if you like what you could get. 

Ok enough shameful advertising for my own giveaway and about my b-day. So, on to why you are here. To see what others are up to in the quilty world. 

Since Monday I have been in really fun professional development. I know you are thinking fun professional development for teachers. No way. However, it is true.   

Completed Projects:

June Twist on Tradition Blocks

New Projects:
Was good and still haven't added on. 

Ongoing Projects:
Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild's Kona Challenge - Hopefully it will grow on me. I don't love the placement, but I don't want to be very friendly with my seam ripper. So it is going to stay the way it is. I think. Luckily all I need to do is make it into a place for my dog and hope she likes it.

Prairie Claw Block - This is the class I took with my mom using the square in a square ruler.

Orange/blue commissioned quilt. Finished cutting all the fabric. Didn't have time to take a new picture sorry.

Embroidery 101 Quilt Along - Cut fabric, messed up, ordered more fabric tonight. Decided to get the backing too. In a funny note, I also happened to win the giveaway from the sewlux fabric. If you read my blog remember how happy I was with the packaging from this company.

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
You would think I could get to these already. I think I may be getting to these really soon as I signed up for a long-arm quilting class at a local quilt store. That was my b-day present from my husband :) what a kind loving husband I have.

I didn't do anything with these:

Kaleidoscopic Quilt Along - This starts tomorrow. Ekk!

Stash Fabric

Doll Quilt for the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Challenge. Still to finishing binding it. I made a silly mistake in binding it and I just haven't fixed it yet, it really would only take me 5 minutes to finish. Ok maybe ten!

  2. Wow, you've got a lot going on! I'll be excited to see your Kaleidoscope quilt come together. :)

  3. Happy birthday! Awesome gift from your husband. I think your Kona quilt looks great! I wouldn't change a thing.

  4. Happy Birthday! I am excited about the quilt along too!! Agreeing with Katie...awesome B-day gift...would love to actually have a long-arm...sigh!

  5. I actually really like the way you laid out your Kona challenge quilt! I love how the backgrounds are different colors... they remind me of 8-bit video game aliens. :D

  6. Happy Belated Birthday Jenn!

  7. Wow! So many projects! I actually really like the Kona challenge quilt. And your Prairie Claw block is just awesome in Wonderland! Love love love!

    Also I just realized I never got back to you about the Neptune! I'll send you an email.

    Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )

  8. I haven't gotten my log cabin done for the skill builder either. Kinda figure I will do last week's and this week's at the same time.
    PS - love your fabric boxes. I use the 12"x12" scrapbooking boxes myself.


Thank you for taking the the time comment. Please know that I read each comment and they all make me smile.
