My To-Do List

So my friend, Christy, just did a post of her unfinished quilt projects. She listed 20. It got me thinking about my unfinished project list. I keep track of all finished quilts, quilts in progress, and quilts I want to make.

We'll start with the positive.... Since I began quilting in December 1999, I've completed 71 quilts. Of those, I've kept 24 for myself/family. The rest have been given away. That's pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Okay, so now the WIP count.... ELEVEN! That's more than I thought (are you surprised, Christy?). Here they are:

1. Eight Pointed Star wall hanging
2. Dinosaur panel baby quilt
3. Blue and Green Kaffe Fasset for the Polack
4. Austin Starrlight
5. Black & White Block Exchange
6. Julia’s Quilt
7. Anna’s Quilt
8. Lime Green & Royal Blue Blocks
9. String Quilt
10. Mystery Quilt 1
11. Mystery Quilt 2

The first two on the list probably won't be finished. They were started years ago. The rest though, were started in the last two years.

Christy and I organized a stash-busting contest a few years ago and we've decided to do it again this year. It's time to finish some of those WIP's so that I can get going on the wish list!

Hail to PU

The Purdue quilt is finished and mailed. I was tired of the zig zag pattern so I went with Purdue P's.

I've done this pattern before... a long time ago.... In fact it was before digital cameras (whoa, I sound old!) so I don't have an image to share. And I didn't get a great picture of this one. I was so happy to be finished with it!

October 2010 Quilt Camp

My last post was of my block of the month. I didn't mention this but I made it at Camp Tecumseh's quilt camp so I thought I better do a full post from that weekend. It was the Wild Wild West Camp. Check me out on the horse!

This is a picture of Maple. Maple likes to watch people through the window. She also delivered this quilt block to my mom. It was quite a suprise.

At camp, I quilted the Purdue quilt I've been working on.

I also worked on a Mystery Quilt. I wasn't super excited about the pattern so instead of making one big quilt, I made to smaller quilts with the blocks that I put together.

Here are my two quilts at Show and Tell. My mom also did the Mystery Quilt. Her top is on the left.

Here are some more photos from the weekend. I love to go from room to room and see what others are working on. As a quilter, I draw inspiration from other quilters and I always come home from camp with a list of projects to tackle.
