How am I doing in the 1st Qtr? -- AKA a super busy March

Well I have been sewing pretty continuously in the first three months and do have some things to mark off my jumbo unrealistic list I set forth in January but the progress is slow coming and I'm not thinking that there are enough days in March to get them all crossed off. 
  • Complete the Medallion Quilt -- still basted and patiently awaiting waiting for me to quilt it 
  • Complete Rush Hour -- same as the Medallion Quilt
  •  Find a Project to use my Cat Nap fabric -- nope 
  • Swoon Quilt using Rock N Romance -- I did get the background fabric now so in theory I could start on this one at any time, but nothing is cut yet. Maybe this one will be going to Stash bash as well.
  • Tula Pink's City Sampler -- HAHAHAAHAHHAHAH! no
  • Keep up with the swaps --  doing great on this one -- Bitches Stitches (done), Kitten (done), Ghibli (done), Tula Pink (done), Rainbow (ready for quilting), Spring (I'm toying with ideas), Alison Glass (need to order some fabric), Stash Bash Swap (just got my partner on this one, no progress yet), Villains Swap (new) 
  • Keep up with the Bee Blocks -- yes and I'm ready to start the March blocks this weekend
  • String quilt for my dad for Father's day -- I need to recount the blocks but I think that I have nearly enough to make a large top.
  • Patterns by my friend Lisa Alley -- no progress 
  • Disappearing Hourglass -- the top is completed, basted and waiting for me to quilt it. 
  • Complete the Scrappy trip along quilt -- these blocks are coming together slowly as I only work on them during lunch at work. 
  • Make at least one plushie from this pattern. -- nope
  • Lucky 21 -- I have the fill in fabrics that I was needing to round things out but haven't stated on this one yet. It might be saved for Stash Bash next month. 
  • Moda Modern Building Blocks. -- I have made about a third of the blocks for this one and have several cut and ready to sew together. I'd like to get at least to the half way point this month. Block one is my most recent block and it might be my fave. 
  • I've also decided that I would like to make at least one bag before the big retreat next month and I've picked up a pattern to test. 
March is going to be busy for sure -- you know that means less time to ogle fabric online and in the shops (yeah right) so maybe I will have a super successful month on Sewing my Stash (Bahahahahah!!!). I'll be sharing some of those swap items later on in the month so be sure to stay tuned.


  1. Your projects are very pretty. How did you decide on a bag pattern? I am looking for one too

  2. how are you working on your trip along at lunch?

  3. The string blocks look great and I'm sure you will find the time to do plenty of sewing.
