Works In Progress & Fabriholic Anonymous Confession

Progress is happening! It's happening very sloooowly but it is happening.  lol.  

I have completed the Butter Churn quilt top. Next steps: baste, quilt, bind!



This needs to get done before March Break is over or it will not be done in time for baby!

Also started but not on my WIP list is a hybrid hand and machine piecing project:
So far, it's just been hand pieced, but it is a longer term project. I am not sure how big it will be.  But I am using the Inklingo method and freebie collection to create the pieces.  There were a few hiccups with the printing but overall it seems to be going well.

I must confess that I have broken my fabric fast. Not once but twice {insert embarrassed me here}.  Once was for the Butter Churn quilt because I was short 11 background squares but then I ordered the wrong colour of fabric (I have the Kona Colour chart now...).  The second time was when I purchased the backing fabric - which doesn't count as part of the fabric fast, but the 6 FQ's I bought with it do...  

Now, I am determined that I will do even more in the next 3 months to use up my stash.  I am participating in the March Economy Block swap on Threadbias.  I also have another baby quilt that is due in a few months and a bunch of QAL's that I want to finish or start.  

Wish me luck ladies and gents!

Quilt Musings - this is why I am trying not to go into the shops during my fabric fast! lol.

Jayne thank you so much. I believe it is a churn dash variation. The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting Feb2013 issue. I have so many magazines but I usually make my quilts from blog tutorials. lol

Hi Soma, thanks for visiting! The pattern really lends itself to accuracy (lucky for me).
