    What do you have in your "working" pile?

    I have two piles....the stuff I'm working on and the stuff I am planning on working on...

    working on:

    - a grandmother's flower garden with 6" hexies that I started close to 9 months ago and have not had any gumption to work on

    - a Quilts For Kids quilt that I got the kit last week..all the blocks are done I just have to throw the borders, backing and binding on it

    plan on working on:

    - rag quilt for my daughter that lives in PA

    - quilts for my sons using the BOM blocks that I have stacked up

    - table runners for family for Christmas (need to actually start this pretty soon!)

    - chenilled hot pads for a friend for Christmas

    What are you working on or will be starting soon??

    Re: What do you have in your "working" pile?

    I have in progress:

    - A quilt for my father and step-mother for Christmas that is all layered up and partly quilted

    - The Gift of Friendship quilt that I showed pictures of in Show and Tell. The main body is quilted but I used a stencil for the borders and I haven't got around to figuring out the corners.

    - A disappearing 9-patch quilt using Arcadia charm packs that I started on Sunday which was naughty because I should have been finishing the other ones.


    I have planned (fell in love with Jelly rolls and bought on and implulse)

    - A braid effect quilt using Kashmir IV jelly roll (adapted for a jelly roll from: http://www.marcusbrothers.com/makeit...ion/index.html)

    - A strip twist quilt using Mill House Inn jelly roll (using this pattern: http://www.quiltville.com/striptwist.shtml)

      I'm finishing up a quilt for my niece. Debating on whether to keep it or do another for her. I'm not overly thrilled with the way the back turned out. I may do another one for her.

      In the "to be done" pile:
      - duvet cover for my brother
      - a quilt for my other niece
      - some fabric spiral notebook covers for my stepdaughter (college student)
      - a baby quilt/blanket for a friend
      - a fancy quilt for me

        I forgot to say that my boyfriend's sister just got engaged so I am thinking about making something special for a wedding present. Any ideas?

            WOW! You are all amazing! I love to hear about and see what you are doing. I do some, but, like you, I have several 'in the works.' Mine are mostly small projects: three almost-finished table runners, two Abby's Treasure Boxes, two baby quilts... Hmm. Maybe I should do a little sewing Happy Quilting!

              There are a few in my 'working' pile.
              I have a table runner that needs machine free-motion quilting.
              3 I SPY's for Christmas for my kids.
              If I can get those accomplished by the New Year, I'll have a humungeous list of UFO's to work on.

                Currently I'm working on a Crazy 8 with 12 fall fq instead of 8. My DWR is staring me in the face waiting for me to finish up a few seams so I can get it on the quilt frame and then I have no idea. I've got way to many works in progress that need finishing to start anything else new. My Fall Crazy 8 was 'reward' for finishing my nephew's quilt.

                      Jrchapman .. how about a double wedding ring done without paper piecing,, Marti Mitchell has a wonderful template set for it .. I bought one and gatheingr fabarics for it - the arcs are one fabric not a bunch of pieces.
                      I have much in my working pile .. I actually need to take a look at the things that I may need to finish in the next month!
                      If you can't see it riding by on a fast horse - it ain't there.

                        Quit Vader,
                        I LOVE her templates! They make quilting so much easier for those of us that are mathematically challenged. I too have some things that need to be made into gifts for the holidays.
                        * Aprons * Raggedy Ann doll * Lap quilt * Several No-Sew fleece blankets * Fleece lounge pants (3 pr) * Stuffed pony * Storm at Sea quilt *
                        That is only the stuff for the holidays. I also have a couple of quilts for some birthdays and babies coming up. I guess I had better get to the pile!
                        Be who you are and say what you feel
                        because those who mind don't matter,
                        and those who matter don't mind. - Dr. Seuss

                          for those of us that are mathematically challenged
                          I am just getting lazy in my dotage.. and I suspect you are too busy to take the time required to work those things, ane why would you? Someone has already DONE all that work
