I've stalked the heck out of Lee's freshly pieced blog, and it's time for my first work-in-progress link-up! I like her format so much I'm just going to borrow it :D
There are a few projects that I have on-going or on hold, but I haven't blogged about them yet so I won't bother talking about them either:P
Warm Cool Quilt Along
I've got all my HSTs pieced and about half squared up. I used the Missouri Star Quilt Company method, demonstrated in this post by Christina. Last time I attempted HSTs I did it the regular way and spent a lot of time being a perfectionist. They turned out great, but this time I thought I'd try speeding it up and just flew through it. Big mistake. They somehow ended up just enough short of 4" that I had to square them up at 3.5", which will significantly decrease the finished size of my quilt. Especially since they're apparently supposed to finish at 4.5". I'm thinking perhaps I should have started with larger than 7" squares? Or maybe I cut them short to begin with... any thoughts?! Either way, it'll still work. I'll just end up adding a border!
I've signed up, joined the flickr group, and started my first draft of fabric picks from my stash. I'm also oozing with enthusiasm!
