Now that school is back in session, (my kids started last week!) it was time for an honest WIP assessment. I counted up my quilts in progress to see where I was at. It turns out that I'm back up to 14. (My recent lowest was 4, back in March of this year.) It sure doesn't take long to rack them up!!!
This quilt is my newest WIP, which is made from solid scraps. It was definitely pre-meditated. I have been planning this quilt for months! The blocks measure 6" x 10" unfinished and are foundation pieced onto phone book paper. I've been having a lot of fun with it! I have 44 out of 88 blocks complete. Feels great to be half way there! My sister and a good friend of mine both commented about the riot of color. Apparently it is a LITTLE much for their liking. As for me, I love all the color. I can already imagine it all quilted up!
I posted this photo on Instagram the other day, but I thought I should share it here, too. A few weeks ago we got not one-but two-puppies! It took at least 5 years for my kids (and husband!) to wear me down. Lucy, on the left, is a Schnoodle (schnauzer/poodle mix) and Gigi, on the right, is a Cavapoo (King Charles Cavalier/poodle mix). We are finally settling into a routine and I get to sleep through the night again. (Hurray for that!) They sure are a lot like kids. It's a good thing they are cute! Ha!
Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start!
