Work in Progress Week 22

Another week a bit of progress this week. I wasn't feeling too well last week so I was stuck on the couch, which was a good thing for my embroidery 101 blocks.

Completed Projects:

Doll Quilt for the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Challenge. I did the binding yesterday. I was tried of this being a UFO. I completely changed how I did the binding. So it took me over an hour to unpick and redo the binding.

Please ignore any imperfections. I just wanted this done and I love it in all of it imperfections. I am hanging up as a reminder not to rush though things or leave things for the last minute. Haha!  Like I would ever do that :)

Speaking of putting things off. I decided to join
on flickr. I seem to have a whole stack of UFOs down there so I joined a support group, because checking in each week isn't seeming to help. Join too if you like. 

New Projects:
June was my month for Scrap-bee blocks. I asked for  a modified bento box block in aqua and tangerine with gray/white as neutrals. I even made a flick gallery to help with inspirations. Here it is in mosaic form.

These are the blocks that I recieved so far. I am just waiting for three more to come in. Then I will start quartering them and sewing them into a modified bento.

The tutorial I shared to make these blocks was from film on the fridge for the modified bento box. It worked out really well and was pretty easy to follow. The block I made is right there at the bottom in the middle. They all look so great together. I am very happy with this so far. Please ignore the bed full of wrinkles underneath. I really don't like ironing unless it is necessary for quilting. 

Ongoing Projects:

Embroidery 101 Quilt Along -  All 9 blocks are done. Again with the wrinkle bed, just pretend you don't see it..

And two blocks even have the embroidery done.

I am all caught up with this Quilt Along. So that is a good thing. 

Completed tops awaiting quilting:
You would think I could get to these already.

I didn't do anything with these:

Orange/blue commissioned quilt -  All the blocks are done. I just need to do some sashing. Have the fabric, should have cut it already, but really didn't do anything yesterday :)

WIP Orange and Blue

Kaleidoscopic quilt along - Again no cutting of fabric yet this week. Maybe after I finish cleaning up for the forth of July party. I have a lot of serving dishes to put away :)

New Fabric choices for Kaleidoscope Quilt Along
