    Lourixe's (Monica's) list:

    More than a pattern's list, mine is a catalog of fabrics that most have been staying in my stash for more than a year, and therefore must be given proper use. I'm trying hard not to purchase any more precuts before I make room for them by using these up:

    1.- Shirts. 3Dudes FINISHED
    2.- Corduroy. Random rectangles with thin (1"?) black sashing
    3.- Fox Trails FQs
    4.- Hope Cove Twice the charm Top DONE QAYG
    5.- Serenade Jelly Rolls (2 of them) Friendship braid? Log cabin? Pineapple Blossom?
    6.- Crazy for Shelburne 2 1/2" strips. Carolina Chains. Top DONE
    7.- Gypsy Caravan design roll (pattern intended: Arkansas crossroads AKA Goog night, Irene). It's going to be a quilt for me, I have border and sashing fabrics as it already was on last year's list.
    8.- Happy Blue Design roll Quilt sandwiched
    9.- Sakura Park Jelly roll Two baby quilts (see below) FINISHED
    10.- Novella Design Rolls (2 of them). Three Dudes? Tiny Dancer?
    11.- Tropicana Pixie strips (pattern intended: peas in a pod) FINISHED
    12.- Morning Tides FQs Big Blue Star FINISHED

        It seems I'm working hard to be able to join the UFO group next year! So far I have started 3 new projects, and finished none!
        #6 hasn't moved since my last post here: I got all the units, but haven't started assembling them. Nor do I have batting and backing for it yet.
        #12 has become a huge Monster Blue Big Star quilt top. It is basted but waiting to be quilted, as the required thread hasn't arrived yet.
        #9 is going to become two baby quilts, with patterns inspired by Piece N Quilt tutorials:
        Piece N Quilt: Funky Wonderland Quilt Tutoiral The top is assembled, I now must add the appliqué.
        Piece N Quilt: Magic Baby Quilt Tutorial

            Ok, I finished one of the two baby quilts with Sakura Park Jelly roll. I finally made up my own pattern, although inspired by the link I posted earlier, it is a combination of strips and squares. Instead of a broad border and ricrack on one side, I finally used Jenny's "self binding" method with the backing being a piece of pinck fleece that matches the top's colors.
            I used this project to experiment some FMQ patterns. I really want to extend my skills beyond meandering.

              #6 quilt top is finished and backing chosen, I need to make a decision on the batting. I would very much like to have it finished by the end of the month.

              I've just finished quilting and binding #12 (edited the list to mark it as done).

                #6 isn't quilted yet (I've been FMQing two 2014 projects instead) but I have finished all the blocks for #11 and have found a pattern for #4.

                  I believe I've been squirreling a lot during spring. I'm making a new inventory of the WIP's that have been waiting in different stages for the busy crazy summer to come to its natural end.

                  Sandwiched quilts:
                  1.- Blue 4P baby quilt (40" X 40")
                  2.- Blue Spiderweb quilt (80" x 80")
                  3.- Purple Katie's quilt (60" x 80")
                  4.- Hope Cove (48" x 48")

                  Finished quilt tops:
                  5.- Repro Carolina Chains (I think it is 72" x 72")
                  6.- Grand Illusion (80" x 80")

                  Sets of blocks waiting to be assembled:
                  7.- Monochromatic logcabin blocks (would like some more for a larger quilt)
                  8.- Extra blocks from Grand Illusion's border (thinking of alternate blocks or sashings)
                  9.- Little monkey blocks (just cut the strips for the sashing)
                  10.-Happy Blue blocks (trying to make up my mind on the layout)
                  11.- DHG2 SWAP blocks (different blocks sizes to match)
                  12.- Jamestown Landing units (just finished sewing together the HST's unto Broken Dishes)
                  13.- Sampler blocks (should I, or should I not, put sashing between them?)
                  14.- Hand sewn hexi project

                    You've got a lot going on, I hope you wrap up a few more of these so you can start fun new projects in the new year!!

                      Well, projects #1, #3 and #4 are done, but I forgot to take pics. #2, #5 and #6 are just too large at this stage for me to work at them while at my in-laws, and the hand sewn hexies progress little by little. This leaves me with just 7 bunches of blocks I should be thinking of assembling somehow. Thanks for your good wishes!

                          Congratulations on getting some of those WIPs finished - it's nice to have a few drop off the list, isn't it?
                          Slainte!

                            It's nice, indeed!

                            One more: Happy Blue quilted and bound: DONE! I found the blue pastel colors too dull, even for a baby quilt, so I matched them with coordinating bright solids from my stash. The quilt is 48" x 60", and I backed it with yellow fleece, and no batting (temps are mild in this country).

                              Happy Blue - great name and I like the 'jigsaw'-like pattern.
