  2. I just finished a large quilt, so I’m changing gears and working on string blocks~ a great way to keep my scraps under control. Love the tour!

  3. Cherie says:

    Unfortunately, no quilting projects right now. Still trying to find the perfect place in our new home so that my sewing machine can be kept out most of the time.

  4. barb price says:

    i’m working on 3 quilts and 4 bom , gotta keep busy, lol

  5. Sandy says:

    Working on a Victorian Crazy Quilt — wheee!

  6. Wow! What great fun I’m having seeing all these new blocks for day 3. Right now I’m working on a Christmas wall hanging, a leaf lap quilt, a heart wall hanging and still have 5 quilts that need to be backed. So much to do and so little time.

  7. Val says:

    I am working on Jo Morton’s Cinnamon Stars and the Women of Influence Quilt BOM with some quilting friends…we share monthly on our blog. Always have to have more than one project going on!!

  11. Cynthia Johnson says:

    I am currently working on a jelly roll quilt for a couple of my foster children that is in the process of adoption.

  12. Souix Bee says:

    I’m working on the Butterfly Quilt from Zebra Patterns. I bought it as a block of the month from a local fabric store. I absolutely hate the quality of fabric and many of the colors; so, I am substituting from my stash. It is a fused applique project and I have also decided I prefer needle turn for simple shapes such as those. This thing may never get done.

  13. I’m working on a quilted bag, which will be auctioned off to help a group of girls go to summer camp.

  14. Celeste Catano says:

    I’m working on a paper-pieced wall hanging of flowers.

  15. marian says:

    I just finished fmqing my Craftsy 2012 BOM. Now to finish a triangle quilt in modern teal, greens, and yellows.

  16. Boneita J says:

    I love to piece & seeing what happens when you mix & match blocks. I really enjoyed this months Quiltmaker with the Hexagons & hope to make one soon. Have BOM’s to do & just finished a mystery block which is going to become a beautiful quilt.

  17. donna says:

    Now that we are finally having some nicer weather, I love sitting on the deck doing some handwork on almost finished quilts.

  18. Sarah Beyer says:

    I`m actually working on a few projects: binding on two quilts, and Bonnie Hunter`s scrappy Trip around the World using Christmas fabrics. Yesterday I joined the binding strips and used the block as a leader and ended as Bonnie suggested. I`m looking forward to the 100 blocks and have really enjoyed visiting the designers` web sites.

  19. Chris P says:

    I am desperately trying to finish Bonnie Hunter’s EZ Street, but having just come back from HQ’s Academy I want to put some practice cloth on my quilting frame and practice all I learned there. I have quite a few tops in line and need to get on with it.

  20. Karen says:

    Last year, on our 3 1/2 month motorhome trip to visit the north east United States, I kept seeing blue (chickory) and orange (lily) wildflowers together, repeatedly. Eventually it hit me that this should be a quilt color scheme. I named it “Chickory, Cheddar N Chives” then collected more fabric as I visited quilt shops on the way (58 quilt shops in 28 states). Then I had to hunt for a pattern to showcase the colors. I am cutting it out now. I am anxious to see this!

  21. Barb Johnson says:

    ummm… just one? I currently have at least 3 projects on the go. One is a block of the month for which I have the blocks done, and I’m working on the setting blocks. Another is a $5 block of the month from my LQS (which reminds me, I better get my block done soon or I will owe them $5 for the next one…). The 3rd is a hand pieced hexie project that I carry with me to work on while I’m waiting for things (dentist appointments, hair dresser, etc.)

  22. Gwen says:

    I am working on a quilt to send off with my son to college. And other ufos inbetween.

  23. Regina says:

    It is graduation quilt time -and lots are needed this year.

  24. Lee Ann L. says:

    I am in the middle of unpacking the sewing room which is taking forever because I am putting fabrics onto “bolts”. As a result, I am not working on a quilt at the moment. I do have several in progress; but, I haven’t touched them since we moved as I am determined to get all the fabrics organized and onto “bolts” and get the sewing room organized and unpacked.

  25. Darrell says:

    I am working on a Split Tri-Recs Star wall hanging. It is (12) 9″ black and cream star blocks split on diagonal, sashed with brown, a black folded inner border, and a cream outside border. It is almost complete. Just need to add borders. This project has been a learning experience. The new to me techniques are: Eleanor Burns’ method of making the triangular rectangles (tri-recs), which are the star points and the folded border. Hope to have it ready for longarmer in about a weeks time. I am pleased on how it is coming out. First project since I had a small stroke.

  26. Lou says:

    I am working on a few projects right now:)
    First is a Twister quilt, then a 30′s BOM, Jaybirds BOM, and Sew Kind of Wonderful curve blocks….never a dull moment!

  27. Jnuquilter says:

    I just finished a king size quilt using the twister tool and pinwheels. I am now working on cutting up my scraps into strips, squares and rectangles to use in a scrappy quilt. I have several UFO’s that I am working on finishing the quilting on.

  28. Donna says:

    Just finishing up a baby quilt (snipping and tucking in threads) and have another in the quilting machine. I also have several other pieced quilt tops ready to be quilted.

  29. Nancyanne C says:

    Just finished buying the fabric yesterday for my granddaughter’s graduation quilt.

  30. Ellen says:

  31. Linda Ferguson says:

    Love the Hearts all Around block! I am working on a Miss Rosie quilt pattern using pastel fabric for a wedding gift – yuk don’t really like pastels. &:-D

  32. Debbie Rhodes says:

    I am working on Stars and Stripes sampler… and trying for the first time to to a quilting in sections… I am working on my final section and excited to find out if it works.. if so it opens up opportunities for me to make larger quilts…

  33. Karen says:

    Hi !! I am working on my final blocks for my Dear Jane quilt !!! It has been a long journey and I am excited to soon put the blocks together !!!

  34. Cher says:

    This tour is so much fun! I’m working on a barnyard scene for a baby boy due soon. I made the barn out of fabric that looks like wood flooring. It’s all sandwiched and bobbins made so I’ll start the machine quilting tonight! After this I’ll be ready to make a quilt from a PATTERN.

  35. I am working on SO many projects–English paper pieced diamonds, tiny paper pieced houses, leader and ender spools, an applique project (Primitive Garden) and Kim Diehl’s Pie in the Sky. I’m also doing some sew-along’s–Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice and Dixie Diary quilts, the Country Threads monthly blocks, and Another Year of Schibbles. Whew!

  36. Denise says:

    I have 5 quilts in progress now, 3 are BOMs, 1 is a mystery quilt, and the last is a kit. 4 of them will be bed sized, and I’m getting close to finishing 2, so now I’m looking for the next project to start, YAY!

  37. Celeste says:

    I am working on a baby quilt for my niece and a doll quilt – a new venture for me.

  41. Jocelyn says:

    I am working on a black, white and yellow quilt. I’m making it for a lady who was in an accident several years ago. I hope this quilt will be a comfort to her.

  42. liz n. says:

    Have several quilts going, but am focusing on a scrappy Fence Rail quilt right now, which is supposed to empty out the scrap bin…so, out of curiosity, I did the math to see just how many 1/2″ X 2″ strips of fabric will end up in this quilt: 3,984. All hand-pieced. File this one under “what was I thinking!?”

  43. Kristen says:

    Gosh, I’m working on so many projects. I have three in the basting/machine quilting phase, one in binding, and about a dozen in piecing (hand or machine). But the big thing is my Civil War Chronicles quilt that I’m hand-quilting every single night.

  44. Karen says:

    I’m making a blue and white pineapple blossom quilt for my grandson. His choice of colors.

  45. Donna Phelps says:

    Day 3 and again, I was not disappointed with the Blog Tour. Great inspiration! Today I am working on a wedding gift of quilted placemats (I have one left to finish binding), mug rugs (yet to bind) and an apron to make. Guess I had better get on the move. Again, I will await tomorrow’s Blog Tour.

  54. Pamela Krieg says:

    Currently (and excitedly) working on a quilt for my first grandchild – a baby girl, due July 24th, 2013. I’m fairly new to quilting, but with this little one the way, I’ve bought tons of fabric and have picked out several baby quilt patterns that I’m anxious to try. My daughter and son-in-law laugh and say she’s going to be one spoiled baby girl – and if I have MY way, they’re right. :)

  55. Tiffany says:

    I’m working on a spring table runner to give my mom for Mother’s Day. I’m using lots of bright colors and it is turning out so cute!

  56. Maxine says:

    working on several UFO…trying to get them done before I start anything new, but I think that idea just went out the window. Have really enjoyed this blog hop..so many beautiful blocks…..Good way to start the morning by reading them all.

  57. Diana says:

    I am working on an English paper pieced grandma’s garden with 1″ hexagons.

  58. Ginnie says:

    I was on the very first cruise offered by Stitch’ Heaven to Alaska. On that cruise we began a mystery quile designed by Debbie Caffrey. While on the cruise, I got some done and then did more after I returned home. However, life interferred and I had to put it away. Two years later, I am determined to finish the top and have reached the point that all that’s left are the final borders. Yay! (I decided I really should get it done before I go on the cruise to Hawaii this fall on which we will be doing another mystery with Debbie!) Of course there are many other UFOs that need to be finished. They will get their turns. My goal is to finish at least one UFO for every new quilt that I finish.

  59. Emily C says:

    I’m working on a Sweet Pea based quilt, a custom applique quilt and a star baby quilt. The custom applique top is done, just need sandwiching. The Sweet Pea has gotten shelved mid-cutting due to my SIL having a baby. Which is why I started the star quilt.

  60. Mary Arline Smith says:

    I’m working on two quilts – one is a pineapple baby quilt and the other is a Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt.

  75. Cathy Koester says:

    I’ve got 2 baby quilts going for friends at work who will be grandparents and a charity quilt for my guild. I want to practice free motion quilting on that one.

  79. Sue says:

    Hello there. I am working on several quilts, but the one I want to tell you about is a gift for my sister-in-law & her husband-to-be. It is intended to give a big punch of color to her neutral-colored home interior. It is a disappearing 9-patch with a black background and orange, teal, and green colorways. It is the first time I have worked with black. So far, very nice.

  80. Colleen says:

    Like most quilters, I have more than one quilt on the go. I have just finished piecing a Guild Mystery Quilt and hope to get it on the frame for quilting later this week. It was a great way to use up some of my stash – even the back is pieced, using up a lot of smaller pieces in my fabric collection.

  81. Rene says:

    I am working on a Mexican Star table runner as a gift for my daughter, also doing a block of the month class and a strip paper piecing class. Love having lots going it keeps me motivated.

  84. Pat says:

    my first T-shirt quilt

  85. Kathy Henk says:

    Just finished a Boxy Stars (by Bonnie Hunter) quilt and a quilty Schlep bag. Now I’m wanting to try a butterfly quilt and looking for a pattern and fabric for an anniversary quilt. Waiting for all the good stuff in the May/June issue to come!

  86. Just finishing up a baby quilt (Pink Chevron) Really easy and I love it.

  87. Stacy Brobst says:

    I’m working on a t-shirt quilt for a soon to be high school grad to take to college with her.

  88. Koricard says:

    Today I am hoping to finish the quilting and binding on a quilt made from blocks I won at our quilt guild a while back. I will probably donate it when it is finished. Then I will be working on a quilt I am making for my daughter for her high school graduation in June. The top is pieced using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Now I need to work on the quilting and binding. It is in nice, bright, colors – perfect for her to bring to college in the fall!

  89. Becky Ball says:

    Red is a neutral! I know that, I live that! Red, red red! Love it! Thanks for the block blog hop and giveaways.

  90. Ann Flower says:

    Iam finishing up a couple of table runners for wedding gifts. I find out the wedding colors for each couple, search for fabrics to match and if I have enough fabric I also make hot pads. Using their colors has been a big hit so far. They have something to remind them of their big day and I get to quilt with colors I would not have chosen for my self.

  91. PJB says:

    I love the bees! I’ve just finished the 20th and last square of Hawaiian applique for a new queen bedspread. Now I need to sew the last four squares with sashing, do the borders, and make the sandwich. I haven’t decided whether to machine quilt or take the time to hand quilt all the squares.

  92. Bonnie Fish says:

    I am working on several quilts right now but the most interesting and challenging quilt is my Alaska Trip Quilt depicting activities and sights from our two trips to Alaska. I think it might take a while.

  93. Robin says:

    Working on a quilt for a family member. Need to sandwich it next. :) . Can’t wait to get it done and send it off!

  94. Andrea says:

    Working on two baby quilt gifts right now and finishing quilting on two quilts for our QU Quilt show at the end of this month.

  95. Sandra Timmons says:

    I have just made a blue and white pinwheel baby quilt. I thought that it turned out so cute, that I make another one. Maybe for me to keep or maybe to give away. There are so many talented designers with their beautiful creative blocks. You just want to make all of them. This will certainly keep you busy and will give you another reason to start a new project.

    Sandi Timmons

  96. Linda Robinson says:

    Starting a king size quilt for my daughter in law’s birthday.

  97. Diann Cornell says:

    I’m making a bulls-eye type quilt for one of my children.
