2nd Quarter FAL project list

Ok...even though I didn't finish my list from the First Quarter,
I'm still going to aim big this quarter.

Mostly because this is helping me keep track of my UFOs...and it's helping me funnel a lot of stress energy and allergy craziness.

Projects (in no particular order):

1. Red, Grey, Black Quilt from bee blocks. This made it a little bit farther from last quarter. The blocks are pieced into a top. The back is sew together.'s still not basted or quilted...

2. First quilt using Skill Builder Blocks. The Top is pieced in rows but not complete. I have one block have to re-do. No fabric chosen from my stash for the back yet.

3. Vintage-y quilt 1(from pattern testing). It's basted but not anything else yet.

4. Vintage-y quilt 2. It's also basted but not anything else yet.

5. Sew. Happy. Quilt. It's basted. I'm planning on hand-quilting this one.

6. Postage Stamp quilt. I've started rows in my random time, but I don't know what I'm going to do with it in terms of layout. I have an idea....

7. The Lawn Chairs Quilt #1, aka jellyroll quilt 1. I started this a while ago from a Moda tutorial using Happy Zombie's Lawn Chair Quilt pattern.
It's been living in a bag unfinished.

8. The Lawn Chairs Quilt #2. see above...the pattern yields two quilts.

9. The boxy bag for Trollop. This was meant as a V Day present. I think it may end up being part of a bday package. I cut all the pieces back when I was working on my Mouthy Stitches item...I sewed 2 boxy bags and kind of burnt out.

10. Cosmic Burst QAL/Precious QAL. I cut up my hoarded Parisville for this QAL. Still hyperventilating a bit about it.

11. My random Farmer's Wife blocks. The reality is that I fizzled on this one. I think I started it when I was too new to quilting and it just threw me. I think I'd be ok with it now, but I also know that the project isn't drawing me back right now. I'm thinking of doing the Civil War ones over the summer in Japanese fabrics. I need to do something with these three. Table runner?

12. Prayer Flag quilt. I made myself a double of the one (different charm pack...something that was Lila Tueller) for my mom that is sitting in the closet until I figure out how to quilt a quilt that big. I am thinking this one isn't even my style now. So I may make it into some smaller quilts for charity or for baby quilts.

13. The Pirate's last shopping bag.
I ran out of interfacing when I was making birthday presents.

14. Stained Quilt. The top is done. The back is semi-pieced. I have NO earthly idea of how to quilt this one.
Stained Quilt top, finish!
