Neptune Love

Well I have so many irons in the fire...don't we all but anyway, I think I mentioned my New Year's resolution of making at least one quilt with a bit of my Neptune fabric stash.  I think I have enough to make several!

Here is what I have started that will at least get that monkey off of my back!

It is the Postage Stamp Quilt Along with Rachel from PSIQuilt.  Check us out on etsy!  These are not all of the blocks so it will be bigger.  I think I am going to love it.  I made it just for me and I have some thoughts on how to quilt it.  One resolution down......many more to go!

DQS 10

I think I forgot to mention that I have been accepted into the Doll Quilt Swap # 10!! I am so excited and a bit intimidated to think of the great doll quilts that I have seen in earlier swaps on Flickr!! Can't wait to get partner info and we will be on our way!!

Sewing, sewing...

Today is catch up day. I was a month behind on my bee blocks so I wanted to catch up on those. I did so! I try to be timely but I failed this month! I needed to finsh my strip sets for the psiquilt Postage Stamp Quilt Along. I did that! Check us out on Flicker!

I just couldn't choose between the Kaffe strips and the Neptune so I am doing both. Don't know if I will be able to keep up with two quilts at once but I am going to give it a try!

We have the "No Prints Allowed" challenge in progress at the KCMQG. These projects are due mid March so they are high on the ToDo list. As you can see I had a couple of ideas on this project also. We shall see how they turn out.
Valetntines day...could use a project or two for that...and then my Great Niece Ava turns 4 in late Feb.....have a quilt planned for that.
So much to little time. Guess I had better get busy.

psiquilt postage stamp quilt along

I have joined this quilt along on Flickr and we are in the gathering fabric stages. It is hard for me to decide what I want to do. I have too many options and therein lies the problem.
These are my options...........batiks and black, Kaffe and black, Full Moon Forest and white or Neptune and white. It is a difficult choice. I promised myself that I would make a Neptune quilt this year, instead of just hoarding it on the shelf and touching it every now and then. So if I use Neptune I will fullfill that resolution! That would be a good thing.
I love them all and will have to decide by Monday when the first set of instructions are available. Come on over to Flickr...the postage stamp quilt along and join us or just stalk the photos! That is always fun.
How's your new year going??? Hope you are on your way to a quilty productive 2011!
