I'm slightly amused at the thought of writing a "show and tell" post when I personally don't have anything new to show, but it's about time to talk about our projects. I'm still plugging along on the Thimbleberries applique basket quilt--I just finished piecing the last two floral borders last night, but I still need to sew them onto the quilt and then decide exactly what I want to do for the final border. Then, of course, there's still the quilting to be done.
My Thimbleberries basket quilt is quilt number four for this year, and I'm pretty much right on "schedule"--if there really IS a schedule. But here it is in the fourth month of the year and I'm working on my fourth quilt, so that seems a good pace. And some of you who decided to adopt the 11 in '11 goal have been making progress too--good for you!
Whether you're part of the 11 in '11 group or not, please take a few minutes to click over to the group's Flickr site (look in my sidebar) and check out what our quilting friends have accomplished. See? THAT's the "show" part of my little show and tell tonight. And if you're working toward 11 quilts this year and you haven't joined the Flickr group and uploaded photos, please do--it's a nice, central place where we can visit one another and comment. Because you CAN comment on the quilts--did you know that? You don't even have to be a member of the 11 in '11 group, just as long as you're signed up with Flickr, which is simple to do.
Somewhere along the line, I've lost track of the Layer Cake Quilt Along; I need to catch up. And we won't even THINK of Block-a-Palooza, because if I ever had an idea I might do anything other than make the first block, . . . well, I doubt I'll ever get caught up now. And last month was the first time I've missed a month of Le Petite since I started when it was the Schnibbles group. But I know I can't do it all, and that's okay. I'm getting things finished that I've put off much, much too long. And I'll get back to these other little projects when I need a break.
Now it's your turn--even if you AREN'T on the road to finishing 11 in 2011! What are YOU working on? We'd love to hear about it!
