End of May ... Green Scrappy Blocks and Projects Begun and Finished
Little things make me happy ... like realizing earlier this week that there was one more Saturday in May and so I had time to make and share some scrappy green Briar Path blocks–the last of the projects I'm working on as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. You can see all the Briar Patch blocks I've made so far here.
At the beginning of the month, I thought I'd work on more green projects ... but it didn't turn out that way. I did start some other projects and mostly finished them. Here's my recap for Barbara's NewFO challenge.
In May, I made the I-Spy Stars quilt and the little pinwheels top, inspired by using the bonus triangles. The pinwheel quilt isn't quilted. I was recently gifted with some tiny buttons that are part of my plan for it. The sewing machine cover was started in April, but finished in May.
My name tag and Sophie Junction signpost piece were begun in May as something to stitch while watching TV.
I also played around with an idea for a Kitty Softie and made this prototype ballet kitty softie.
In June, I plan to make more kitty softies and many (many!) scrappy yellow blocks for four rainbow scraps projects.
I'd like to finish putting together the top for the Feather Bed Quilt and start quilting it.
And I really want to kick off a new project for the 12 weeks of summer that will make use of those very old neutral and cream swap blocks as a scrappy background.
I rarely commit project lists to blog pages because I fear life or another interesting project will distract and I'll end up getting none of it done. Curiously lists and project plans DO work for me for other things ... maybe I resist anything that turns what's fun into a commitment, a deadline ... work.
Are you a list maker? Do you create project plans or schedules for your quilts? Does it still feel like play?
