    What Are You Working on That is a Challenge For You?

    I'm making a pinwheel quilt and I've never made one before. It's definitely a challenge for me piecing it, but also because I'm working without a pattern.

    I am about to start a Judy Neimeyer quilt called Sea Urchins http://www.quiltworx.com/patterns/sea-urchins/ I have done paper piecing before but not on this sort of scale, I just need to finish a small lap quilt I am working on and will give it a whirl, wish me luck
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    None of my current projects are difficult. What I'm finding to be the challenge is to maintain my quilting mojo so that I'm not going crazy with mid-winter cabin fever. Major storm predicted for the end of this week. Thank God for sewing machines, wine and chocolate.

    I am making a Harry Potter quilt similar to the one SCJoan did here on the quilting board. So far I have emb. only 35 of the 70 some odd book titles. Im thinking some books might be non titled. Right now I have done the owl block and am pretty proud of it. However, mine will never compare to hers. Her quilt is amazing.

    Deep cleaning my sewing/craft room! LOL Just finished a top, it's ready for LA about 1/2 done with another one and it is a bear! All my fault too. 56 blocks all with the same problem sewn 2 1/2 in sq in lower right corner of block on the diagonal trim off excess. All done and noticed main blocks upside down so small sq attached to upper left. it's all trimmed so I need to salvage something from this mess. UGHHHHH!!! Good thing this is a quilt for me!

    I am in the process of handquilting a queen size quilt using FM stitching..It seems like the blocks multiply at night while I sleep!! It's killling me because I have fabric sitting out for 2 more quilts I need to get done for graduation gifts~! I also recently moved in the past few weeeks, so I am sewing and searching as I go for the things I need..Hopefully soon I can get a nice size desk/table and shelving to organize...But- being disabled, I have a lot more time that most...after the 2 quilts are done for the gifts, I am hoping to get 2 more done for other graduates!!
