4th quarter FAL's EPIC.

Okay, so I'm living large in the world of lists.  In that regard, I'm a legend in my own head.

My sewing room is like a Tardis.  It's bigger on the inside.  Seriously, I come from a line of stuffers/hoarders.  I have an insane amount of projects...and supplies.  I need to get a handle on that this year.  Or sew faster.  One of the two.

So, anyway, here's the list:

1.  Bess top.  I cut it for the Selfish Sewing week, which turned out to be the week from hell.  So, it didn't get finished because I ran out of bias tape.  It will.  Early on.  In time for cooler weather so I can wear it.

2.  Divided basket for me.  Ditto on the Selfish Sewing week original plan.  Cut following the making of a basket for a BFF having a babe.  Never finished it.

3.  Penny Sampler Quilt.  I'm still on track to finish this one before Christmas.
Penny Sampler so far!

4.  Sisters 10 Modern BOM quilt.  One more block to be released and then I can finish the top and quilt it!

5.  Wellspring quilt.  I made one for the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild donation to the house.  I needed to get batting from the Guild to finish it.  On tap for the Oct meeting.

6.  Postage Stamp Top #1.  Made when I cleaned out my scrap bin.
Postage Stamp #1

7.  Postage Stamp Top #2.  Made after #1 when I realized my scrap bin apparently is also like a Tardis.
Postage Stamp #2

8.  Wonky Star Quilt.  I have a baby this one needs to be I need to get inspired.

9.  Hexy MF.  Seriously, this one needs to be done.  And sent away to come back and be bound.

10.  Space quilt.  I have to get this one done for the aforementioned mama of the babe that is coming for whom I made the divided basket.  I inherited a block from Katy at The Littlest Thistle.  It is so so perfect, as her nursery themes involve robots and rockets.

11.  Retro Rubies...will only get done if I'm in the mood for curves.  Who knows?!

12.  Converging Corners.  It either gets done this session or it finds a new home.

13.  NY Beauty Orphan Block project

14.  Bag out of 2 churn dash orphan blocks.

15.  Churn Dash quilt..Started during The Penny Sampler class.

16.  Meridian Cardi #1

17.  Meridian Cardi #2

18.  Hexy Diamond quilt.  Realistically, this is not going to get done as it's my long term hand sewing project.  I'm just including it to get it on the master list.

19.  Marcelle Medallion quilt.  I petered out before the Flying Geese section.  Need to make this one happen.

30.  Train Case Makeover
Travel case, in need of makeover

31.  Octopus pillow case for me (I made 2 before, but the one for me is upside down. I've gotten new fabric to redo it.) In the photo, it's the failed one. I'll be making another one, one with the octopi upright, with the cuff on the right.

32.  Sidekick Bag  (Yup, I wrecked my most lately used 241.  I need a new bag.)  I bought fabric for it a while back when Marla and I shopped.

Yeah.  It's an insane list.  But I think I can make a considerable dent.  Plus, um, there's the pressure of a deadline with the Christmas gift make-age.

Goals for this weekend:
Pin baste like  MOFO....the Malka improv quilt, the two postage stamps, the Wellspring, the Sisters 10, and the Churn Dash....Of course, that means I have to finish the Churn Dash mini first.
Also, cut fabric for the first Meridian....finish the divided basket and maybe the Bess top.


  1. Wow that is an impressive list.. but all wonderful projects I love the Malka quilt and the converging corners blocks. Such pretty colors!

  2. I got tired just reading your list! Don't burn out my dear. My block should be there any time. Look forward to seeing all these wonderful finishes

  3. You are a legend in my head too for keeping track of that list!
    Now heres my go at cheering you along...
    You can make a massive dent in that list #1 just needs some bias tape
    #2 is cut and ready to sew up
    #3 is on target same with #4
    #6&7 I think the bottom of my scrap bin may link to the bottom of your scrap bin and we are fighting a loosing battle!
    #12 has fabulous fabrics so you know once you start it again you'll want to finish it!
    #31 is a super fast make and you know how satisfying it is to get a newly made pillow case on the bed, best nights sleep ever!
    There is 6/32 projects whipped into shape :D for more cheerleading just give me a shout :D

  4. Insane is right girl! Good luck getting as much of it done as possible.

  5. Wow, it is a great list, and they are all such fun projects too.

  6. Your master list is awesome! I have a similar list on my wall in the form of white cards and washi tape. I like that your putting it out to the blogiverse to keep you accountable. I may have to do that too lol. Did you follow a tutorial for your star in #22?

  7. You are a madwoman as usual but you finish lists like no one's business.

  8. Welcome to the madness. You are a legend, but not just in your own head! I'm a lover of big lists myself. Can't help it. I'd rather have too much and not get it all than too little and twiddle my thumbs!

  9. Wow, I had 7 on mine and thought that was ambitious. Nothing like a deadline though is there? You deserve some me sewing thrown in there. I'm looking forwad to reading about your finishes!

  10. Ahh, I do love shifting something from my list to someone else's ;o) Don't forget to save some for next year :oD

  11. Wow, I'm speachless on that long list. You have some beautiful projects. I love the block for Madison's Senior Quilt. What are you going to do with the train case?

  12. Best of luck on your list this quarter! Love the start of your medallion, that is going to be amazing.
