WIP 28/01/15

Oh my its the last Work In Progress Report for January. I am both happy and sad to say I am still working on my baby quilt for Lil Pickle.  I know you must be thinking...gesh this quilt AGAIN....I'm slow but I am still working at it so YEA me :)

 I am officially all done the squares in the squares. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be, but I am happy with the look.

Part of the front (other half is still in the machine)

What the back looks like 


 I am now moving onto stitching in the ditch. So far I have gone in between the quilt and the border. 
You can almost make out the line below the boxes..lol


I was going to opt out of going around each square set, but it looks a little strange with just the 4 squares...see above

 I want to have this done for her birthday in the middle of March. I think I can do it, fingers crossed I can!
However, at this rate I am not sure what I should do with the border. Should I quilt it or just leave it....hmmmm


For those of you who read yesterday's post.....yes this quilt is also covered in unicorn fart dust....aka glitter from the tutu..lol

2015  Sewing Mission Statement
In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list small and just work on one thing at a time. I am going to try and not start anything "new" but instead take one thing off of my no progress list each month.




No progress Items to date (these are projects that have appeared on the to do list for 1 or more months with you guessed it.....no progress

  1. It is coming - don't rush it. Keep it simple. I would personally keep the outer border plain - no quilting.

  3. It's going to be beautiful.

    Your "glitter woes" reminded me of a gal my son dated years and years ago---we always knew when she had been at the house because she left a trail of glitter behind. I guess girls in the 90's wore glitter in their hair? Anyway, it was a nice memory.

  4. It's coming along great, and of course it takes time and several blog posts....it's a handmade quilt!

  5. You're making great progress. Just work at your own pace so you can enjoy it. If it's not finished till after her birthday I'm sure Miss Pickle won't mind.
