Second February Finish


I only finished two quilts in February.  The second one is a Project of Doom (design by Jennifer Ofenstein at wallhanging for my nephew and his wife.

2018 PoD

Now for my goals for March:

  1. Bind Rainbow Cascade quilt and give to Theatre Alliance for raffle.
  2. Start making t-shirt quilt for Matai’s graduation.
  3. Start making blocks for Ezra’s A Bug’s Life quilt.

I’d love to get the blocks finished for the second two since I need to have them both finished by May or June.  I’m going to have a busy March!!!

First February Finish


My first finish for February.  With a little luck (and a bit of work) there should be 2 more before the month is over.

This is a baby quilt or wall hanging – about 30″ X 40″. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet but I do love the colors.  Quilting by Missouri Star Quilt Company. I love the meandering with occasional flowers to go with the flowered fabric in the quilt.


I have all blocks finished for the Project of Doom but I am having a puckering problem as I quilt it.  So for now I’m going to let it, and me, have a bit of a rest and then I’ll go back and tackle it.  Meanwhile I have another quilt back from Missouri Star that I need to bind.

My priorities have changed a bit.  I have two great nieces who are expecting baby boys in a few months.  One, whose baby is due in June, has asked for a quilt.

Next steps/quilts:

  1. Bind 2nd quilt returned by MSQC.
  2. Finish PoD.
  3. Make embroidered blocks for baby quilt.
  4. Iron interfacing on t-shirts for t-shirt quilt. (the shirts have been “rough cut” around the patterns that will be used.  She has asked for a twin sized quilt, but sent so many t-shirts and jerseys that there is enough material to make a queen or maybe king size.  Once I have everything interfaced and the blocks cut to size, I’ll go to the design and arrange them and decide which ones to use.  I may end up making a twin sized quilt for her dorm room and a wall hanging or lap quilt.  I’ve also fiddled with the idea of making it reversible but that would be a really heavy quilt and she’s going to college near the coast. Stay tuned.
  5. Start making blocks for Land Before Time quilt for Garrick.
