Here is a pair of baby quilts that I made last month, called 'Baby Woodlands'.
Woodlands because of the rail blocks resembling tree trunks of a wooded area, and the baby part because it is only a small wood!
I used a WeePlay jellyroll, love American Jane's fabrics and stunning colours. Also love the era that they represent.
I have more to tell you about these quilts but it will have to wait until next week as I have a few final bits to sort out before I can share everything.... it's very exciting!
Now time till the end of this month is limited. I am having trouble sticking to my organisational list for sewing. From my list I need to be making a bag for a friends birthday and quilting another baby quilt that I have finished the top for.
I want to leave the baby quilt until June because I am attending a quilting workshop by Deborah Louie and think it would be great to have a play with the baby quilt after attending the workshop, you know - a quilt that is a quilt but not so big as most!
So in order to stick to my personal challenge I need to quilt something and bind it this month. I have another quilt (rather large) all basted ready to go. This is fine. HOWEVER I also want to finish piecing THREE quilt tops before attending the quilting class, so I can take them along.
I am really torn as to where to put my priorities at present. Which to finish first.
Time is another factor. With our winterish days I am not finding any (or very little) time to sew in the afternoons and tend to not want to of a morning or evening due to it being so cold in the study where the machine is. These are the times of day I want to snuggle up with a book..... My daytime hours seem to fill fairly quickly with chores, schooling and generally being with and looking after the five children. My next two weekends are gone, no time for sewing when I am needed elsewhere for all day.... soccer and cattlework.
*grin* OK OK OK I hear you, I need to be strict with myself and resist the book snuggle time, and get sewing! Mornings and evenings are the time I need to make use of to get all this sewing done. I have HEAPS to get done in the next fortnight. *grin* better get cracking!
Out of curiosity, how do you manage your sewing time? Is it when it takes the urge, a regular time or do you have to schedule it strictly????
