WIP Wednesday

Juice Box Quilt!
I timed how long it took Tommy and I to baste this quilt, and we came in right at 15 minutes! Hopefully that will be encouragement not to let my tops linger at that stage. I went with some simple straight line quilting so it would have lots of body and not get too stiff.
Not the greatest picture, but this is me showing it off at our guild's meeting last week.

Ongoing Projects:
Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along

 I posted this one twice, because I was amazed at how different it looked when I set it on point.

Here are the first 20!!There are two I plan on redoing, (2,2) and (3,3) The color and size just isn't quite right.

Sew Mama Sew’s Modern BOM 

Anna Rae’s Quilt
I can't wait to show off this one! It's coming together nicely. 3 more blocks to finish, and then I must decide if they need sashing or not.

No Progress:
Oriental quilt
Double Hourglasses
Log Cabins quilt
In Color Order’s HST

     I have several more project I need to get working on, five I can think of off hand! These block of the month projects are so different for me. I'm used to seeing one thing all, or most of the way through before beginning a new project. After our last guild meeting, I'm beginning to think I'm the exception! I suppose it keeps things fresh this way, when I get tired of one thing, it's time to move to another. 
     Interestingly, I'm opposite in the rest of my life. I like to dabble here and there, and only finish things when I must. Like doing just enough dishes to keep them at bay. Or cleaning the bathroom just enough so I don't feel dirtier after washing up in it. Okay, maybe I'm not that bad! But I certainly get more sidetracked elsewhere in the house.

In other news I am planning on having a giveaway for my 250th post! It's about 3 posts away!!
