I Haven’t Forgotten About You

I’m still alive….I swear!

My last post was just before I left for a long weekend in Vegas with some high school friends.  Two of us went to the Kenny Chesney concert and had an absolute BLAST! Here he is – looking right at me!

Hi Kenny!

The last thing I was working on before I left for Vegas was my project for the Bloom Bloom Pow Quilt Along.  It’s in exactly the same state now that it was then.  I’ll get back to it at some point.

I did finish the Creeper Quilt in time for The Blue One’s 10th birthday party.  I had a couple of weeks to spare even! I don’t have a great photo of it with great lighting, but here it is:


In use on the car ride home from the party:

I’m leaving Bloom Bloom Pow on the shelf for now because I really want to finish my Glamping quilt for our camper.  I haven’t taken any new photos, but the top is sooooo close to being together.  Well, the main part, that is.  It has a bazillion 3×5 pieces for the border that I’m still sewing into pairs, then into fours, then into eights, then, well, you get it.  It will be a bit before the inner border is done.  I’ve decided to add an additional border as well. Here are the last photos of it that I took:

The Pink One helping me sort:

I’m already looking ahead to the next project….after I finish Glamping, that is.  I just ordered two Jelly Rolls of Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander and I’m already all excited to start it. I don’t know what rock I was living under, but I missed it when it came out.  I think it’s pretty fantastic fabric and can’t wait for it to arrive!  I hope I do it justice in the quilt I’m planning for it!

So that catches you all up on the last six or so weeks.  I am hoping to blogging more actively, but that all depends on the status of my projects through the summer.  We shall see..

I’ll be linking up with Freshly Pieced’s WIP Wednesday again. Check out what others are working on these days…

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

      Thanks! And it was so quick and easy that I pulled it together in no time (in little bits of time after he went to bed). I used 6″ squares. Easy Peasy!

  2. That creeper quilt looks very comfortable 🙂
