Default I'm on a Mission (31) update

Ok - slight change of plans - I decided to concentrate on the kiddo's quilts first - of which I have 13 of 14 tops done. While working on one of them (the red/blue Ohio Star), I found out the child I was making it for was not as old as I had thought (turned 7 the day I was working on it. I thought he was like 10 or 11), so I finished what I started (I literally had the outside border to add on when I found out it was his "7th" b-day, rededicated it to to an adult and started from scratch on another I-spy quilt ("Kade" one) for him. So here is the balance of those.

It will take me a little longer to finish the last one since it is paper pieced, plus I am debating on changing the entire design of the quilt to something different.

These have been fun and I wish I had time to finish all of the adult quilts before starting the quilting process but I think that would really be pushing my luck. I do have a back-up plan on the adult quilts however. 4 of them live out of town (2 - way out, like out of state out), so they are the next 4 quilts on the list outside of these 14 kids quilts. I figure the rest I can hand deliver after Christmas as needed since everyone else literally lives within 5 miles of us. But I will press on and see how far I get.

Thanks for stopping for a peek and have a great quilty weekend!

You sure are on a mission! I thought I was a 'lean, mean, quilting machine' but I see you are my equal... I just love them all!

Wow! and Wow! Those are beautiful quilts. You must stitch 24/7 to finish that many quilts. It's quite OK to change directions on our quilts. Best wishes for your project and completion. I hope you take a picture of all the quits together at some point.

They are all lovely, but the Shadow quilt is exceptional. Beautiful colour placement.

All so wonderful and unique. I love the batik shadow as well, but if I were to pick one for keeps, it’d be the third from the bottom. What is that pattern?
