11 in '11

has a goal to make 11 quilts in 2011.
She was willing to make time
(and possibly offer a prize or 2 at the end of the year)
to keep track of those who want to join her.

I *think* I can make 11 quilts this year.
Yikes, that sounds like ALOT!

But I already have 1 done. And #2 is 90% done.
And I have #3 completely pieced.
And #4 is over half way pieced.
We'll say #5 is my Block A Palooza quilt, so again, half way pieced.
So, Ok, maybe I can do this!
Just as an FYI, I do not plan to count my runners/table squares,
etc....only real quilts.

I'll keep you updated!

Scattered Thoughts

I'm feeling slightly scattered.
Its been that kind of day.

Started with taking all 4 kids to the dentist for cleanings.
Good reports all around, but man, I wish they had been
better behaved.

Then, we ran a few errands.
And came home.
And I took a nap!
I was so tired!

This afternoon, I finished piecing my March table runner.
And started my March table square.
Love the runner.
Hate the square.
More on these laters.

Yesterday, I FINISHED the flannel baby
quilt for my brother.
So glad that is done!

And for the FNSI I finished
block #8 for the QuiltAlong.
Love how this turned out!
I hadn't figured out the basket stitch yet on
this machine, so after a bit of playing
around, I got it done.
All 8 block look like this:

I'm not much of a sampler person, so I hope I
like this when its done. I do love the Sunkissed
fabric's tho!

And, because my thoughts are scattered,
here are pics of my darling making breakfast
yesterday morning.
Strawberry crumble, anyone?
And check out that fancy apron she has on!
She picked out the fabric, I did the work.
She looks cute.
Even deal all the way around :)

Catch up!

WOW! Its been awhile!
My excuse is that I spent most of last week sick.
Strep throat that would not get better!
Ugh, it was horrible!
But, I am back and feeling better
and have gotten quite a bit of quilting done.
Here's a photo blog of it:
All quilted and pretty for valentines day! This table is in my kitchen.
And the runner that sits on the dining room table.
Let's see, I think this was block 6 for the quilt a long
This should be block 5? I'm not real happy with how it turned out.
Block 4. I think. Love this one!
And block 3.
Today's Block 7.
A sneak peak at what I am working on right now. This will be a streak of lightening quilt
for my son.
And, this is the center top for my bed. Finished this at the end of January
and haven't gotten back to it yet. All I need to do is add borders and send it off to be quilted.

And there are a few other's that I have been working on, but no pics of those yet!

Friday Night Sew In

The next Friday night sew in is
next Friday, the 18th.

Not sure what I'll work on.
I have about a million choices.

If you're wondering where I've been,
I'm here.
Just sick :(

If I'm not better by tomorrow, I'm going back to the dr.
I've got strep throat and its not going away.

But its been awhile since I blogged and I've
gotten lots done and bought since then.

But for now, go sign up for the FNSI, it'll be fun :)
