Thank you JOAN for this very clever HOP. If you haven't looked at the previous days' posts of those participating, you have to. Lots of inspiration and advice on working thru those lanquished projects.
I didn't work a project to a finish, but rather I'm showing in honest what I have. I have a strict 2-year policy - use it in two years or pass it on. I am not a collector of fabric or projects.
This is my 'work space' in a corner of my living room. I had taken this apart a several days ago as I needed to use some of these items at our Guild Show. It gave a good reason to clean - vacumm, dust, and get all those pins up. The small rolling cart has my thread and the tall cart - large drawers contain specialty fabrics and the small drawers hold pins, zips, special threads, templates, supplies, etc.
6.5" blocks that are replicas of guild members blocks from a president's challenge. These do need to get into a flimsy before the year's end.
This was a travel project while I was taking the Hall of Fame quilt around for ticket sales. It is two years old, and you can see I am trying to get this into it's flimsy stage.
This Hexi project just needs it's final border on and then sent off for quilting. I hate doing borders, but this one is on it's timeline as well.
Another traveling project - yeah, I love to work hexies when you need a little hand project on the road. All the 'tiles' are made so this needs to become a flimsy this year.
This was a project using African Fabrics brought home from a guild member who traveld to Africa. Again, sashings and borders are cut.
My main goal this year is to get 'that tote' of tops finally quilted. Hey, I've gone from three large totes down to one. I have been doing 3-5 quilts myself and then 'quilting by check' with 1-3 each month. That tote should be empty at the end of this year. These three tops I pulled to use as table covers at our quild show with the purpose that they WILL be the next ones quilted - not to go back in that tote!
Now I am ready to get to work. My Juki has been thru a lot of years piecing and quilting - love this machine. BUT she is getting a little grouchy (I do most of my own repairs), so I have been researching for a new machine - leaning toward the Baby Lock Jazz II! Oh, I have 6 other machines used in our class room - so not to worry. (and I have a long arm) Yes, I keep a herd.
