Catching Up The Rundown

My bundle for the Star Surround Quilt-A-Long arrived, Thanks Julie :)  Isn't it just so pretty!!   I can't wait to start cutting into this, My plan is to start tomorrow so I give myself plenty of time to write the cutting instructions, but lets be honest, I will probably be up super early Monday morning typing away :)

It never ceases to amaze me how the above gets changed into the below!!  Quilting really is an amazing art!! There is still plenty of time to join in the Star Surround Quilt-A-Long, we are just gathering fabric now and of course, there will be lots of prizes to motivate you along the way :)

But, before I can starting cutting out the above pile, I need to finish up with these lovelies ;)  This is Soho Chic by Sandy Gervais and I absolutely love these colors!!!  Yesterday, I managed to get to my sewing machine for the first time in almost three weeks (Yes, I was going through major withdrawals) and whipped up a little project or 2 from these.  But they are secret right now so I can't show much more.

I pieced both projects and got the first project quilted using my version of an all over swirl design.  I plan to quilt the second one the same, would you like a video tutorial of the quilting??

So that is what  I am working on right now.  Seriously, I can't believe how long it has been since I have done a little WIP/Rundown list.  I had to really look back to find it, like back to May 1, and it was pretty much totally outdated.  So, I racked my little brain, and managed to, hopefully, get this updated with all the things I am working on right now.  And I must say, it is so nice to get this written down and out of my mind, way easier :)  So here it is , the updated rundown :)
