First up: finish the Houses Sampler, to be named Furever Homes, I think. I finished the 12th block back in December, but I need to design the 4 others for the wrong side of the tracks, then create the railroad tracks, sashing, and picket fence border. It will probably end up a full-sized quilt, I think.
Well, since I blew my Finish-Along goals out of the water last week, I thought I should challenge myself a little more, so I’m adding three other projects to the list.
Second: the Lilac Hill Trapunto quilt (final name unknown). This has all the parts cut for the top, and the piecing will be pretty simple. The trick is that I want to do a trapunto design inside each of the 10″ squares. And it’s king sized. So… yeah. Insane.
And the last, and smallest, will probably cause the most tears. It’s truly a UFO because I started it about 10 months ago. It’s one of the handkerchiefs I got from Grama Eddie’s things when she passed. I got far enough along to embroider her name in her handwriting in the middle and a nice verse around it, but I stalled on finishing it because I kept tearing up. Plus I wasn’t sure what else to do with it – maybe Dresden plates on the corners? I think I want to do a trapunto effect around the quote as practice for the king-sized quilt above, but don’t have a template or pattern in mind yet.
