This year, I’m going to be participating in the 2013 Finish-A-Long. It looks like a lot of fun, and like a great way to get me to finish some of these projects that have been sitting around forever. There’s no penalty for listing more things than you can finish, so I’m going to make a … Continue reading 2013 Finish-A-Long
The fall semester has been kicking up into gear, so I’ve had less time to work on projects recently. It’s also influenced what I’ve been working on to a certain extent. That said, I’ve still gotten some things done! Finished: I made three notebook covers for classes, following Rachel’s tutorial on Stitched in Color. I’m … Continue reading WiP Wednesday as the semester first kicks in

I think the next time I make one I’ll use a different color for the edge of the pocket than I used … Continue reading Small projects & HST Quilt-along

So far I’ve finished the blocks up through April, and I can’t decide if the pinwheels or the flying geese are my favorites. I am very proud of the way the pinwheels all line up in their centers, though. … Continue reading Block of the Month Progress
First of all, here’s the rather pathetic progress I’ve made on the Mixtape quilt since the last time I posted about it: I’m looking forward to finishing it up, but I think it’s going to have to wait until the end of the semester: something about the potential finished-ness of it once I sew in … Continue reading Mixtape progress and Block of the Month question
