i managed to finish my first top for 2010 earlier this week (the blue and yellow) and got every block to play nicely with it's mates. So that one is put away for quilting later.
and now it's on to quilt #2, a pink, green and white one called "Rose Trellis" from a pattern by Sandi Irish of the same name. the patern was put out as a pamphlet a few years ago at Hancock fabrics stores (the chain, not Hancock's of Paducah) to go with their line from Hi-Fashion Fabrics, inc.
it's a strippy quilt, set with four vertical rows of 9 patches on point, alternating with rows of roses in a border pattern. So far this week i've gotten all 28 nine patches made and started adding the setting triangles to them. i hope to get this top together by the end of the month.
Also this week i've been playing in my project boxes that i've set aside to work on this year; a total of 20 boxes in all. I've managed to get them organized with all the fabric and the quilt pattern in each box. So it will be interesting to see how far i get this year on knocking out this row of boxes.
All told, i've got about 3 years-worth of projects lined up now, but at least i can say that i know where i'm headded---provided i can keep my boxes in a row! LOL
