Things in progress

Yikes, not a whole lot of progress lately--maybe I shouldn't have eighteen projects going on at the same time!

I am working on quilting my pinwheel quilt and am about 2/3 done. I'm leaving out a few pinwheels for texture.

I also picked up a magazine, 101 Patchwork Projects and Quilts by the Quilting Arts people, because it had some unusual projects in it, the likes of which I had not seen before, and of course promptly had to start a new project--a soft-sided portfolio that will hold file folders!

If you have this magazine too and decide to make this, buy a yard of extra-firm stabilizer, not 3/4 like the pattern tells you to!

I got this fabric a while back because I just thought it was really pretty, but I couldn't think of what I wanted to make with it. This is going to be a great way to show it off!

  1. Your quilting looks very nice, unlike mine. But then my machine is acting up again, skipping stitches at will (with BSR foot attached). I will have to try again or else it's machine back in the shop. :(
    Like your folder thingie - you can send me instructions for it (scan and send) if you like.
