I am so excited about my list of projects for this quarter! I have a tendency to overshoot and I think I may have this time as well with 15 on my list but most of them are pillows and minis so it should go pretty well. Many of these are for swaps or presents. The first project on the list is also my ALYoF goal for April.
So that's about what I hope to accomplish in the next three months. I have a few more swaps I'm signed up for but have no idea what direction I'm going with for them so you'll see other things pop up here as well. I also have my ongoing swoon project but there is no way I'll finish that this quarter. I'm excited for this quarter and for all the near instant gratification projects on my list. I'm linking this up with the Q2FAL post as well as WiP Wednesday.
|#1 - Cotton and Steel Mini Swap quilt I used the Nested Churn Dash pattern. My partner said she was loving Tokyo Trainride so I went with it. I'm loving how this picture is showing off the quilting too. I need to finish by trimming, adding the binding, and the tag. This is my ALYoF goal for April.|
|#2 - Alison Glass Mini - I'm planning on using the Sea Breeze pattern. To whip up a mini for my partner in the Alison Glass Mini Swap. I'm loving the idea of this one and may need to make one for myself.|
|#3 Suzi Pouches - I'm making six pouches for my sister-in-law using the Quilted Patchwork Pouch tutorial. I have all the stuff for the pouches but have only made one of the six.|
|#4 Nana Pillows - My mom asked for pillows from this leftover bunch of Papillon that I used to make her this quilt. I'm excited about this!|
|#5 Route 15 Pillow - Made to match this quilt. Should be quick, easy, and fun!|
|#6 Preppy The Whale Mini - I won this kit on an Instagram giveaway and I'm excited to add it to my growing collection of mini quilts.|
|#7 Riley Blake Challenge - I got the fabric for the MQG challenge and I've been struggling with a plan. I'm thinking something to do with hexies, maybe this tutorial here.|
|#8 Dottie Mini - This was a total impulse buy at my LQS. I usually don't do that. It should be fun though. I think I'll try the pinwheel one in the middle. Another one for my mini wall.|
|#10 Scrumptious Baby Quilt - I've had this fabric all cut out and ready to piece for over a year now. It just needs to happen. I'll be using this Pinwheel Baby Quilt tutorial.|
|#11 Hazel Hedgehog Quilt - My eldest daughter is in love with all kinds of animals and wanted an animal quilt. I'm in love with C+S Basics so the two combined should be pretty epic.|
|#12 Orange Fancy Fox Quilt - My youngest son adores all things orange and foxes. This quilt is going to be epic for me. I have all the foxes pieced and basted. It just needs to be quilted and bound.|
|#14 Mittens - I'm knitting myself a pair of mittens out of the same yarn as my cable hat from last quarter. I'm using the Cozy Purl Ridge Mitten pattern. I'm really loving these and think they should be a pretty quick finish. I altered the pattern to make them fit me better.|
|#15 Big Owl - I'm knitting my first animal. The Big Snowy Owl from the Purl Bee. It's pretty giant and is going really fast but I haven't been really motivated to finish it. I'm also worried about how I'll get the stuffing to stay in as it's not incredibly tight.|
