Quilt Tops in Progress

I have vowed not to start anymore quilts until I finish what I've got going on.  For me, finished means top done, waiting for batting and quilting.

Crazy Mom Quilts: Quilt-a-long #5

I'm at week 5, which means technically I'm not behind, because she posts each week's step on Monday.  So I'll be behind as of tomorrow because I'm not gonna have time to do the next step today.

This one is gonna be for Muffin's bed.  It finishes at a twin size, which is perfect.  I'm using these fabrics, with an added print I didn't get a picture of.

PS I Quilt:  Pinwheel Sampler

Almost done with this one, s'matter of fact I would be done if I hadn't asked Mr. Chaos for help with the layout.  He came up with a brilliant layout, but it requires more work.  I'm at the point of adding the border, which is pieced, so it's taking me awhile.

1930's Wonky Stars
These are the blocks I recieved from my month in Sew Buzzy.

1930 wonky stars

Here's my plan:

Which means I need to make 10 more 12" stars and come up with 18 6" squares of 1930s prints.

Erik Homemade: Scrap Pile Mystery Cleanup.

No pictures of this one.  It uses scraps of darks and lights with a sashing (I'm using white.)  This is my leaders and enders project.  I have no idea what it will end up looking like.  The only info I know is:

"Block size: 12 x 12-inch finished

Number of blocks: 30; 15 A-Blocks, 15 B-Blocks
Finished quilt size: (throw) exact size to be announced"

Tic-Tac-Toe Picnic Quilt

I've decided to use my winning for the block lotto to make a happy picnic quilt.  Super simple plan, I have 40 8" blocks.  It'll be 6 blocks x 6 blocks with 2" bright sashing.  Have I started on it yet?  Nope.  not yet.  I've got the fabric for the sashing, but haven't cut it yet.

Cool Braids:

I haven't touched this project since this post.  So I might not hold myself to finishing this one before I start a new quilt.

So that's six quilt tops in progess.

Now I really need to get back to cleaning up.

  1. They're all going to be great quilts! I especially like your plan for the wonky stars. Of course, I can't wait to see your tic-tac-toe picnic quilt.
