Deana: Weekly Progress Report

Below is a new project I started.  I am making two queen sized quilts out of this pattern, one for each of my girls.

I also kitted another quilt.  It is ready to go out to it's waiting sewers.

I cut strips and did some starter strip sewing on the two queen quilts.  The strips are in the box. 

 I finished sewing the tiny spikes on the gold star below.  I also cut the next twelve blocks for my Christmas quilt.

I really went to town on Dear Jane this week.  Below is G1, Hattie's Hen House.  

It took 50 minutes and is 8 pieces.  It is pieced with applique.

 This one is called Autumn Aster (F9).  It is all applique and took 2 hours and 46 minutes.  It has only 13 pieces.

This green one is called On Target (F11)  It gave me several problems because I tried to sew it in Y-seams.  It was just too small and the wrong angle for that, so I redesigned it for paper piecing and added the applique white pieces and corner pieces.  It took 2 hours and 30 minutes and has 20 pieces.

F12 is called Starburst.  It is entirely paper pieced with 20 pieces and took 41 minutes.

The next one is called Tour De France (F13)  It is all applique, 5 pieces, and took 1 hour and 16 minutes.  

Below is F2 Kaleidoscope.  It is paper pieced, took me 54 minutes, and has 28 pieces.  

 I finished the F row and made one block in the G row.  When I finish G row I will be halfway done with the quilt top excluding the pieced border.  

My goal is to do one block a week, but two a week will finish the main blocks this year.  This week I did 6 -- two were for the week before when I didn't have time to sew, and the extra two just got me ahead of schedule a little bit.  I am pleased.

Dear Jane totals to date:
1,703 pieces
74 hours and 30 minutes

Below is my Snowman Embroidery Quilt.

Here is the progress I have made at my son's wrestling tournaments this month.  Once I complete the section below I will be done.

Below is a link to what a finished version of my Snowman quilt looks like.

Also, I linked up with Freshly Pieced Modern Quilts WHIP WEDNESDAY!  You should check out the inspiration there.
