Weekly Progress - Back to School

{Dad doing the wake-up via Skype}

{Second grade? WHAT?}

So the Dude is off to school and I suddenly have masses of free time. Which is filled with PTO already. Woo!

Fifteen Minute Challenge

 Pressing and folding all my fat quarters. Slow and steady progress. Benefit: I could find my Poetica fabric! {See below.}

Design Wall

Four-patches as leaders/enders for a little toy quilt. There will be pinwheels in the empty spaces. Eventually.


Superhero Squares


{Grandmother's Choice - Churn Dash - Thrifty}
LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 (18/36 blocks)
{Check out more BOMs!}


I'm working on quilting a HUGE t-shirt quilt, so when I needed a break and didn't want to do complicated piecing, I put a couple of these together. The pattern is Boardwalk by Fig Tree. It's one of those blocks that looks 'eh' set regular {right} and 'WOW' on point {left}.

No Progress:

Fat Quarter Stars (6/12 blocks)
LQS Saturday Sampler 2011 (12/12 & center) 
Chunky Log Cabin (13/20 blocks)

St. Paul's Cross (2/42? blocks) 



 Grandmother's Choice - I know. I KNOW. But, I decided not to do the Vintage Christmas QA, because I really don't need another Christmas quilt. And a long term BOW is nice to have around. And I really want to use my Poetica! {But I need to buy a smidge more now... Oops!} 

Japanese Charm Swap - I did one of these a year ago, so obviously I need to add to my collection. There's a few spots available still {maybe!}
