Doesn't look like much, does it? Let me explain what you're seeing ... several years ago my mother wanted to make a pink/green quilt for her bed. At 80-something, she needs a bit of help with projects like this so we decided to make it together. Long story short, many of the pieces she put together didn't make it into the quilt for one reason or another. I saved all those pieces. Assembling them into a victorian-looking crazy quilt that will one day go to one of her great-grand-daughters is my UFO #5 which is the UFO we are to be working on for Judy's UFO 2012 Challenge. This will be a lap quilt. So in the photo are the many not-used pieces from the original quilt. Also in the photo is some lace and ribbon that will make its way onto the piece. Not photographed are the beads and embroidery floss that will add to the very feminine victorian look for this quilt. This is a bit of an emotional project for me.
Also in the very beginning stages of development is a challenge piece for the local Art-rageous Quilters group. The theme is "A Walk Through My Garden". These are the fabrics I'd like to incorporate in my piece, somehow, along with some beads. The piece is small - 12 x 30. I've been noodling around some ideas and slowly it's becoming more settled in my mind - today I may try to sketch it out.
I'm also knitting a cap for my son. So, lots of things in progress. 2012 is off to a good start.
