I have been a "wool prepping fanatic" in the last month or so. Only problem with all the prepping is....someday these projects have to get stitched!!! I just keep telling myself....baby steps, Anne, baby steps.
Before I share these projects with you tho, I have a couple of belated thank yous. The first one is to Merumo from pleasentree blog. She sent me this adorable little purse and binding clips that she made. She actually sent them to me as a thank you for winning my giveaway last fall. How sweet is that? Thank you Merumo!
The second thank you goes out to Pat from Silver Thimble Quilt Co. I won her giveaway last month and love the giftys. If you remember, Pat designed the Comfort and Joy quilt pattern that we just finished up in our quilt-a-long. Thanks Pat!
The first project I'm gonna share is the Primitive Banners quilt by Lisa at Primitive Gatherings.
The first part of the quilt is the "frame". This will be the background for 4 seasonal little quilts.
The one for spring is this cute little bunny. Isn't he cute smelling those wonderful flowers. I can't wait until we can ALL be smelling spring flowers!
It's hanging on the wall where I used to hang the sheep with all the monthly blankets (which I finally finished and will show you later)
Here are the rest of the banners. I'll be
The original pattern can be found in this issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects, or you can order from Primitive Gatherings directly.
Isn't that a cute way to display it? Maybe I need to find myself a big basket like that.
Next up is one that is actually almost finished! It's called "Merry Merry" by Heart to Hand. See that strip on the bottom? That's all that's left to do, but I'm thinking of not adding that part. It's just a vine with holly and berries on it but I'm not sure it adds that much to the design, so ....
I'm thinking of just leaving it off. What do you think? Do I really need it? Right now it measures 20"x30". If I do it the way the pattern calls for, it will be 20"x36". Oh, decisions, decisions. (I tried to add the photo of the pattern and for some reason, Blogger is fighting with me on that. If you click the link, you can see the finished pattern)
Here's another project that's almost complete. It's a pattern by Cheri. It still needs a bunch of scrappy squares to add to the final border. I need to get cutting! (and sewing)!
A couple of close-ups.
But wait...there's more! I prepped this project from Primitive Gatherings and loved it so much that I immediately started stitching. Got it finished last week. I just ordered the frame from them so will show you the completed project soon.
Next up is a wool Christmas block of the month that I prepped in 2 weeks. Maybe it WILL get finished by Christmas. Stay tuned!
So, do you think I need a 12 step program or should I just keep going? :)
