Between Projects

Junk basket fabrics, feather pattern
Snowflake repair, bedspread blues
Oh, so many things I want to do!  Just when I thought I was catching up with my project list, I've just added a few more items.  And I'm dreaming of two more after that.  Oy!

Currently, I'm going through my fabric to make a couple more junk baskets.  They will be the next size larger than the one I made for myself.  While digging through my fabric I found several 2" squares of the background fabric to my wonky snowflake.  Yay - I can now square it to the same size as my other snowflakes.  Maybe that will motivate me to finally sew them into something.

I've picked a pattern for a summer quilt that has been on my to-do list for years.  I plan to incorporate a fat quarter bundle I got from my sister at Christmas.  I calculated yardage for the rest of the quilt a few nights ago - and double checked my numbers.  I tend to underestimate, but I think I have the right sizes this time.  Off to the fabric store this weekend!

Lastly, I've been eyeballing Anna Maria Horner's feather quilt pattern.  I know what I want to do and who it will go to.  I just need to do more research on macaw and African grey feathers and pull together my fabrics.

Whew!  And this list doesn't even include the Sculpey projects I need to get working on.  There's just not enough hours in the day to do all the fun stuff I want.


  1. Love that royal blue/white snowflake! And your feather quilt sounds intriguing with the color research you have in mind. I really like feather patterns.

  2. Sounds like a pretty project Sally! That's the story of my life, not enough hours in the day to do all the fun stuff I want to do...........When is the "Prize Patrol" going to knock on my door? :)
