Variety is the spice of quilting!

There's nothing like a little variety in a girl's life! And this gal likes colour and more colour and different projects! 
These are the projects I'm currently working on, and I don't mean shoved away working on, I mean there right out on the table and ALL worked on over the week!

My HAD9P quilt. (Half A*sed lol)
It's a variation of a Disappearing 9 Patch but with one cut, not two (hence the HA).
 I've used charm packs of Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt with some extra red leaf outline from the range.
Borders (from the range) are still to be added.

This top is complete.
It is a mix of single squares, 4 patch and 9 patch squares and all fabrics are from my stash.
It is just waiting to be sandwiched and quilted.

Drunkards Path Blocks in batiks.
I need to decide layout.

Some gorgeous fabrics I bought from Kate Quilts.
It is from Surface Art Fabric, plus some Kona solids. (Love those Kona solids!)
I have started putting pieces together, so this has progressed further than the photo.
This is my first real venture into "modern" quilts and I am designing it myself.

A rather blurry image of a block - one of 12 - from a precut pack.
I have bought fabric to do borders and I'm currently sewing the first border.
Fabric is "Knock Knock" by Henry Glass
For some reason, it reminds me of my Grandmother's kitchen in the late 50s/early 60s.
It makes my heart sing!

Do you have several projects on the go at the same time? Or do you complete things before starting another?

Want to see what others are doing? There's heaps over at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!



  1. Busy Busy
    I try not to have to many projects going at the one time Not always successful but I do not have many UFOs

  2. Love the colours in your Drunkards Path ...
    Number of projects on the go? Mmmm think I better keep that secret; suffice to say they (artworks, quilts, books, etc) could fill a cupboard on their own.
    Just cast on the wool for a jumper for one of my grand daughters - but discovered two that I had started last year but put away when summer came .... lol.

  3. Lots of things going on at your place. I always have lots of things on the go. Can't seem to help myself. The batiks are beautiful.

  4. Your projects are all very cute!
