Here is my list of active WIPs. There are 11 projects (fingers crossed I don't find any more in my sewing room, or start new ones.....😂)
2022 Monthly Colour Challenge and 2021 Monthly Colour Challenge - I'm participating in the monthly QAL hosted by Jen @ Patterns by Jen. I didn't piece together my 12 blocks from 2021, so I am going to join them with the 2022 blocks and made a larger quilt. Both sets of blocks are made with Kona solids.
Stay at Home Round Robin 2022 - This was a QAL hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail. I fell behind and didn't finish rounds 5 and 6. Since I have so many projects on the go, I might just skip the last two rounds and add this to the pile of quilt tops to be finished.
Macaron Mystery QAL - Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs hosts an annual mystery QAL. I fell behind with the 2021-2022 version and need to finish piecing my blocks. The push is on to get this to quilt top status because the 2022-2023 mystery QAL has started.
Blue Skies & Sunny Days - This is a pattern by my friend Sandra @ Musings of Menopausal Melon. I'm going to use a Kona jelly roll with Kona White for the background. Stayed tuned for more details about this project.
MMQG Brown Bag Swap - My quilt guild, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild, is in the midst of a brown bag swap. We put 2 metres of fabric in a bag (yardage, jelly roll, fat quarter), and another guild member will make something for us. They can add additional fabrics. This is a secret swap so I can't share anything until the final reveal.
Ruby Star Summer Sew Along - Perfect Picnic Quilt - I'm participating in the Ruby Star Society Summer Sew Along. I had a bundle of Rashida Coleman Hale fabrics and decided this was the perfect opportunity to use it. This is now a pieced top (stay tuned for photos), so it will move to the pile of quilt tops waiting to be quilted.
Melodic Mystery QAL - I've chosen my fabrics for the 2022-2023 mystery QAL hosted by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs. I'm using Kona Chartreuse and Storm (background). The cutting instructions will be released in August.
Modern Mini Quilt - I found a skill builder project online by Trendtex Fabrics. I had some troubles with the pattern, so I need to figure out the best way (aka the least work involved) to fix it. Here are the colours I used.
Bloom - This is pattern by Leanne @ Devoted Quilter. It was easier to cut fabrics and piece blocks while I was in my temporary apartment, so I prepped a few projects for when I eventually got home. I'm using Island Batik fabrics.
Cargo Duffle - I started a cargo duffle as a gift for a friend and didn't finish. 2022 has been a challenge, but now that I'm back home, I hope to get back on track. This is a free pattern by Anna @ Noodlehead, but I'm following a tutorial by Michelle @ From Bolt to Beauty to add a lining. I need to get this finished.
Exploding Hearts - This was a 2021 QAL hosted by Laura @ Slice of Pi Quilts. I fell behind as my design wall wasn't large enough to lay out the blocks and then...well life happened. I haven't purchased a new bed for the spare room yet, so I now have space to lay out the blocks on the floor.
Hand applique project - I was gifted some fabrics from Sandra @ Musings of Menopausal Melon. I've added some Kona solids, and I have a hand applique project in mind.
I'm hoping to make progress on some of these projects over the summer. We'll see how that goes. 😂
