Guys, I’m sorry. I fell of the face of the earth. It’s prep time for my Vegas conference, and the following week is the big project launch for a work thing, and then the next week I’m vacation. I will try my darndest to keep things moving and posting over here, but if you need a quick fix of “What is Pam up to?” just watch Instagram for more upcoming bathroom art and who-knows-what-else from my travels.
Also, I got stuck in traffic for two hours trying to get home yesterday, and if that doesn’t crush your spirit, I don’t know what will. The good news is at the end of it, I did get to a sew-in and spent some time with Marcia, my Singer Featherweight.
Conveniently the #IGQuiltfest prompt for yesterday was “what’s on your cutting table”, and for once I had something other than a pile of fabric or a cat! These little gems are being sewn into 3 rainbow star blocks to go into a raffle quilt for an upcoming blog hop!
Stay tuned for a link over to the blog hop the first week of April so you can enter to win the quilt yourself!
It was quite a productive week in terms of number of projects finished. Granted, three of them are quite small, but a finish is a finish!
First up is a pair of composition book covers for a school fundraiser.
I’m really happy with some quilting on this poppy mini quilt; this “Poppy Power” mini ended up 12″ square.
I also finished my Star Wars mini for the swap, and my small quilt for the Riley Blake MQG challenge, and just before writing this a donation quilt for my guild. More pictures of those to come later! Next up is the second magazine pattern for The Stitch TV Show, and THEN I finally get to the chair cover and pillows for my mom. Only three months late. 🙁

QuiltCon was wonderful and exhilarating and exhausting all in one, and I will try to write about it over on The Stitch TV Show site. I make no promises, however, because…
Unfortunately I came back to work to a super busy time and I’ve not had energy to do much of anything outside of work. Time marches on, however, and I did pull it together long enough last night to make the top for my Star Wars mini for the May the Fourth Be With You Swap. We had to show progress on Instagram as a check in.
My picture is less than impressive, frankly, BUT I am liking the direction it’s taking. As I said in the caption on Instagram, it’s going to come alive with the quilting! Such are the hazards of in-progress pictures.
Of course right when it’s time to head out of town I decided to “just get that one thing done”, while also doing laundry and packing and everything else. So here’s a charity quilt I started.
The rows are almost put together; my goal is mostly to get the top finished before I head out tomorrow for QuiltCon. That will bring me to a quilt pile-up of FOUR tops ready to be quilt. I will think about that when I get back, though!
