Waiting to be Quilted

Recently I took a break from customer work and decided to spend some time moving another one of my UFOs  to join the other projects patiently waiting to be quilted.

Baltimore Album Quilt started in 2011

I just needed to make the time to assemble the rows and add the borders.  I really like the way it has turned out.

Snowball quilt made with Civil War Reproduction fabrics in 2011

There are two wall hangings designed by Pat Sloan....  I'm debating adding borders to each of them so that they better fit my wall space.

Sampler Basket started in a class with Pat in 2011
Lucky Charms started in 2010.  Pattern can now be found in her newest book "Focus on the Center"

I have made many new online friends thanks to Pat's Quilt Mashup forum.  You can join us here:

Last year we did an Improv Block Swap...  making and sending blocks to the swap leader (who happened to be me) who then repackaged and returned one block from each participant.  We all had lots of  fun and I completed this quilt in January with some blocks remaining for another project.
Improve Block Swap started 2011

We had so much fun we decided to do it again.  This time, because several of us did not own a Christmas quilt to decorate with (shocking to realize that I was one of them!) we chose a simple Ohio Star block pattern to be made with Kona White and red and green Christmas fabrics.  I found this lovely Christmas "doll" fabric to symbolize all my new friends and completed this flimsy back in February.
Christmas Ohio Star Block Swap started 2012

Here is "Scott's Squares", a design I came up with for my nephew using men's shirts. He'll get this for a Christmas present this year.
Scott's Squares started 2011

It won't be long and my half-square triangle (Thangles) project will be ready to quilt also.  I've started assembling the rows and cutting borders.  Here are some of the rows laid out ready to sew.
Half-Square triangle project started 2010   
I have many more UFO's in various stages of completion that will all eventually end up on this list.  Hopefully this list will get smaller before I add too many more!
