It has been almost a month since I have linked up to Lee’s Work In Progress posts, but it has also been a very productive few weeks.
Last time, I had five works in progress.
1) I have had no progress on my Quilt of Valor II quilt.
2) I finished my Denise Schmidt Log Cabin Quilt. You can look here for more details.
3) I also finished my Cape Ann Hybrid Quilt. You can look here for more details. I’m thinking about posting a tutorial on how to make one. What do you think?
4) I made a baby sized log cabin quilt with the extra blocks from my DS log cabin quilt. You can look here for more details.
5) Cape Ann baby quilt: I had extra Cape Ann Charm packs, so I cut them up into 2.5 inch squares and I am making yet another paper pieced quilt.
6) The Ultimate Boy Quilt: So, my poor son is usually the one who has to come with me to buy fabric. Normally, he very much dislikes it when I say, “We are going to the fabric store.” But, we found a solution, and that is to find a “boy” remnant fabric from the remnant bin or cut 1/4 yard of a fabric of his choice. We had over 20 different fabrics, and so I thought we might as well put it together. He is extremely anxious for this quilt. He deserves it, after all that his mom has subjected him to. 🙂
Oh, yes, this is yet another paper piecing quilt…. It will be similar to the Cape Ann quilt above.
7) Homeward bound Christmas Quilt: A while back, Candi of Raccoon Creek Quilts began a Quilt Challenge of the month. One of the challenges was to design and make our own block. I made a block that I named “Homeward Bound” because it looks like a ton of geese flying into home base. The tutorial is here.
This last month, she challenged us to make a quilt or something with this block. Well, I definitely did not finish the quilt, but I’ve made great progress on a quilt that will ultimately be a large full size quilt (16 of my 16 inch homeward bound blocks). I only have to press and sew and press and sew and press and sew and press and baste and quilt and bind and I should be done :).
8) Skill builder sampler blocks and Quilt Challenge of the month blocks:
Here are my curved piecing blocks for the skill builder sampler. I had a hard time printing off the pattern for the blue and red block (flowering snowball) so I had to make my own with a compass and 12 x 12 paper. Also, I went ahead and made the entire curved 9 patch block, even though it ended up being 13 inches on each side. I like it enough that the cut corners don’t bother me much.
And, since I wanted to make the other blocks from the Quilt Challenge of the month, I went ahead and made these other blocks using the same fabric as my skill sampler blocks so that I could ultimately put them all together in the same quilt.
These quilt block tutorials can be found here.

I guess I’m back to 5 quilts. Thanks for visiting!
