WIP Wednesday - A list might be helpful before startitis sets in again

Low volume top and EPP - a nice fit I think

It is time to get organized. I hope to take most of the next two weeks off from my day job and just do Christmas. I expect some free time to quilt and I am worried that several new projects will call me - I seem to have chronic startitis. Maybe this list to keep me on track. That one up there is my low volume quilt which is to have appliqu├ęd EPP. Some applique will be nice with a movie and then to back and quilt it.

Windmills and Trees - top

The Windmills and Trees (Pattern by Lynne from Lily's Quilts) quilt back needs to be finished and then this one can be quilted. It is not big so clearly could be finished in no time. Right?

Liberty Squares

My Liberty Squares quilting practice quilt needs a back and then I can use it to practice quilting. The plan is to quilt a few squares a day, different fmq patterns in each solid square. Can't practice until it is basted, that is not a big job, surely.

EPP Hexagons for Travellin' Pic Stitch Blog Hop

This hexie blob can be finished while watching some television. I have plenty of great suggestions for watching. It has progressed some but not enough for a pillow. A pillow is not that big.

Ohio Stars

My Oakshott Lipari Ohio Stars runner will look festive on the table or wall. This one is a priority, all it needs is a border, plain back and some quilting. One night. Maybe two.

Mod Pop Top done!

Now quilting the Mod Pop might take a while longer. It is huge. But I love it so much, I need to get it basted and then plod along with it. First I have to iron the king size sheet that will be the back, surely I can manage that right away.

No - for the No quilt

Here is my first pieced No for the No quilt using Denyse Schmidt's Proverbial Quilt pattern for Krista's Proverbial QAL. This was fun and it will be my piecing project for the holidays as so much of the rest is quilting - quilting is my favourite part, but I do love piecing too.

I need to remember my Finish Along list, there are a few more things there that did not make it into this new list and are due to be done by year end. Clearly I need to hold startitis at bay for a little while longer.

Oh and there is still more shopping, more baking and then wrapping and tidying, I love this time of year. Yikes!

I am linking to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and the Needle and Thread Network. Buttons are on the side. You can see what everyone else has on the go there, well worth the look.

Best,
