What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Started 11/19/17 by MarciainMD; 1090382 views.

well I don't want to "give away" too much because it's Susan's pattern (well written).  But here is what I drew out myself in EQ.  Her construction method is pretty slick, nothing wasted.

Just finished this from strips found on the donation table (plus a bit from my stash).  Some of them were thin and raveling so not fun to work with.  but I'm still pleased with how it came out.  I was thinking I would donate it or gift it, but gee I'm kind of liking it - think I'll keep it.

Lovely! I always look forward to seeing your latest I spy quilt.  I saw your             spreadsheet on all the quilts that you have made--wow!!  I couldn't read the little print, but how many novelty quilts have you made over the years?

201 latest count, 26 this year including tops.  Disclaimer, 14 of those were the little 36" square donation quilts made from donated fabric, plus 5 more big boy quilts.  I'm counting those as novelty because they are for kids, but they only have one or two conversation prints, not the usual fussy cut multiple fabrics.

Impressive!  That's a lot of quilts!  I haven't really kept track of the ones I have made, but I did take  a photo of each quilt and have them in a file on my computer.  Guess if I really wanted to know I could go back and count them. Don't you wonder some time where they all are now?

actually yes, that's part of why I started keeping the excel list.  I wanted to know who I had given them to, if I had done a blog update, when they were completed, the pattern name, the pattern designer, etc.  I then added categories for Tshirt, novelty, or other.  I was also keeping a paper binder and I noted if that had been updated.  but I'm kind of moving away from that.  If it's a new pattern, I'm putting it in the binder, but otherwise I'm not.  I find I'm not referring to the binder much.  And I got to thinking who I was doing all the "organizing" for.  My kids don't care.  Same with the blog.  I was trying to make it as complete as possible like a quilting journal, but again my kids won't ever refer to it after I'm gone (I don't think).  So I'm not worry about it so much.

I am frustrated that I have about a half dozen I spy quilts that I cannot remember where they went.  at one time I knew all that and exactly which patterns went to who and when.  but I also used to remember where I bought fabric and now I find fabric in my stash with no idea where it came from.  Memory is not what it once was....blush
