What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I had this table topper that I had made for DMIL several years ago (which she put in a closet in a plastic bag to keep it safe....hmmmm).  Anyway, DD asked if I'd make her a Christmas tree skirt for her apartment - Viola!  Looks better as a skirt than a table topper.

Next I really would like to start working on this (from 3 Dudes website)....

or this....

or this as a miniature....

but I guess I'll be a good girl and honor a commitment to make a memory quilt using old receiving blankets - in pastels  - ho hum.  At least I already had some fleece backing that is the perfect colors.  I'm going to just do large blocks in a diagonal layout so it should go fast, then I can move on to the fun.

My grandparents put their first quilt gift (my first bed sized *supposedly* quilt ever) in a trash bag in the closet (to keep it nice). It came out when Grandma passed and they passed it back to me.

I just received a box with 2 sets of tshirts for my sister.  She lost her son last year, and I want to make quilt of comfort for her!  I should get these started, but I haven’t hardly touched my quilting lately.

ive had work and school book fair, and unfortunately, very little support for doing it.  This needs a new game plan next year!  I need a couple school parents to help set up and clean up!

I like that "to do" list you have.  The second one is my favorite.  I'm in a similar position.  Have to complete hand stitching down the binding on the t-shirt quilt I made for a friend before moving on to projects for me.  I have been doing so many charity quilts for the quilt group that my next project will be something for me.  

That was a great idea for re-purposing that table topper into a tree skirt.  Perfect!

neat modification to the table topper!

I agree with Cathy... I really like that second one too!

I was decorating last night and have decided to put a nativity on the table underneath this quilt - but now I'm thinking it would be nice to have something more Christmas like above it.  Of course too late to do much about it now.  This does look a bit like stars, but it's so busy you don't even notice the nativity.  Hmm, an excuse for making another quilt though.

You need an excuse???  Nobody told me that was a rule.  LOL

Maybe she has a fabric budget? fearful
