WIP Wednesday--April 29th--Progress and Goals

A little more progress this week, but not as much as last week.  I added borders to the Jelly Roll Race quilt pictured.  This is a quilt that my91 year old mother made and I added the borders.  She enjoyed the ease of piecing the jelly roll strips.  I pulled lavender and orange fabric from my stash for the borders.  I still need to square the quilt top up.  I will pull more fabric from my stash and piece a backing for this quilt.  I will be quilting it myself.

Goals for the Week:

  • Square the Jelly Roll Quilt
  • Piece a backing for the Jelly Roll Quilt
  • Baste and start quilting the Jelly Roll Quilt
  • Finish pieceing blocks from a 2013 Block of the Month 
I have about 16 UFOs that I am determined to finish before starting another quilt.  It does feel good to be getting back in the swing of things.  I am so grateful to have a place to post my progress--it really helps with accountability!  I have decided to save my $$ and get some help quilting some of my larger finished quilt tops.  I have three waiting to be quilted and they are all Queen or King size.

What have you been working on this week?

Hi - I saw your finished jelly roll race quilt on WIP Freshly Pieced. It looks beautiful. I posted mine which isn't as far along as yours. I doubled mine and have 3400 inches. I've put the first two rows together so far. It goes fast.

It is always easier to start than finish I think, so well done on your progress so far.
