strings and things....

Stephanie at loft creations has a strings challenge... I just had too...

I so don't need another project,
I have 12 in the works. and 7 that need to be quilted...!!!

But while I wait for more thread to arrive for my tile quilt, I practiced some
shadowing machine quilting on this Valentine Strings runner...
this thing is 6' long... the picture is very deceiving!

It's PINK! well, but not without my RED!!! And it was all scraps. How great is that?
Now if I have some old leftover bindings in pinks and reds this will be done lickety split...

Hop over to Stephanie's blog and join in, at least to get rid of some of those scraps I know you have piling up!

I'd like to think I could get a few tops done this week, but it's going to be a busy one...
One small goal is to get these last three ON POINT blocks done
and then I can put that top together...

I have 5 up on my design walls right now...
Two of these are serious piecing... (the crosses and the geese)
that ain't happening this week.

The Kitchen sink quilt is plugging along...

The Orange and Pink Paula Prass blocks, I could maybe get done this week.
perhaps I'll put that on my must do list...
And I do want to get to my wonky log cabins... but not this week.
I also need to get the Chinese New year quilt quilted.... ...

OK. that's it. that's my list for this week...

On Point blocks, Chinese New year. Paula Prass blocks, play with my wonky log cabins and kitchen sink quilt, and lastly, bind the valentines runner...

Good to get focused.

And I am off....Happy sewing!


  1. Love the PINK and you are inspiring with all of your goings on...can't wait to see what's up your sleeve in the scrappy dept

  2. You're already for Valentine's Day. I heart Valentines! Loving your on point blocks.

  3. You've got a full week! I love the Paula Prass blocks, they look good! Happy sewing and think pink!

  4. Can you post photo of the wonky log cabins when you get a chance? i would love to see them!

  5. Hey, slow down. You're making the rest of us look bad! haha

    But I love your red/pink strings. I wanna make one!

  6. Sounds like a great list! My goals are not quite so adventurous :) Great start to the week!

  7. String quilts are so fun! I can't believe how many balls you keep up in the air - go girl! And that you actually keep count - I'm too chicken.

  8. I love that table runner. I think I'll go make one right now!

  9. The strings quilt looks like a fun project. I like how you made yours into a Valentine's runner.

    Also, FYI, I just nominated you for an award on my blog. Thanks.

  10. Wow, you sound like me! Way too many things going on at once. But I don't know if I would like it any other way. Your table runner is really sweet.

  11. My goodness do you ever sit down?!! I absolutely love that orange quilt on your wall! I do like quilts with squares in them.

  12. lots of fun projects
    I didn't realize you were making the Diva Quilt (hear its on the cover of QNM for Feb 2010)
    I love that block with the nine patch center and flying geese all around it!
    That quilt is on my list of quilts to make this year
    you can see the Houston Diva challenge quilt here...

  13. I've joined the strip challenge too but my scraps still don't seem to be going down !

  14. I see the Hawaiian block there. I bought the magazine today and am reading all about it.

  15. i like your block in the lower left of the last pic-- from the cover of Feb's Quilter's Newsletter. i was inspired by that one too. do you think you'll make the whole quilt?
    oh, and i'm loving your crosses too..

    (found you by way of the NYCmetro mod quilters site, i'm on LI)
