wip and some improv

in order to have some practice free-motion stipple quilting before i tackle "taite" i used some leftover jelly strips (2.5" x width of fabric/42") to improv piece a doll quilt. but the strips i had turned out to be more than enough for one doll quilt and i ended up with two tops instead. score! i have been documenting the process of putting these together and will share what i did later. for now, these are the two tops pictured above. and interestingly, when i climbed on a chair to snap these shots, i think i got some inspiration for a new quilt design looking at them from a fresh perspective.

report for the week:
completed - none

started -
doll quilts
gathered fabrics for a class i'm taking saturday

in progress -
"limb" - another 1/4 stretch of binding bound while at the park on tuesday
"taite" - trimmed off excess hanging pieces on backing, got back ok'ed by daughter #2, still needs to be repinned
"6 & half dozen" baby quilt - still needs to be bound
"spinning out of control" - nada; waiting for top to be fixed, backing to be pieced, etc

purchases - NO new product, but . . .
two quilt classes: shabby seams this weekend, beginner chevron quilt in april (half sq triangles, here i come!) this should actually help me dig into my stash which is why i'm doing it

trips to the store - one to sign up for the classes. i was already on that side of town after a pediatric visit with the baby. taking her in there without a stroller was pretty wild! but we survived.

in the que - blah, blah, blah about 20 projects

between several family birthdays (the mr.'s 40th coming up!), a wedding, spring break, our anniversary and whatnot, i'm about to go into hyperdrive life mode. there will be very little sewing past the class this saturday. i hope to get back to this stuff come mid-march. until then, squeezing in what i can and living my life!
