The top is just a taste of some blocks I stitched two or three years ago on retreat. I have 22 and enough fabric for at least 8 more so this is going into the pile to work on this year.
On the lower left is a top that I made at home from a book that I no longer have but the top is complete - 60" square. I even have the backing and binding for this one so I am thinking I will take this one along to machine quilt.
On the right is another retreat project - at last part of it was sewn on retreat - maybe the same year as the blocks on top? I remember finding that wonderful coral and building the fabric choices around it. I had set it aside because I ran out of fabric but I found 1.5 yards of one of the taupe fabrics when I was in California this spring so now it has borders and enough left for binding. I have the batting, just need backing and this too could be a machine quilting project - just need to un-earth my quilting pins. It isn't big, about 48" square but it would be a nice lap quilt for my mom when she moves into the memory care unit.
I also finished basting some vines for A Little Porch Time (did this as a quilt along with Lori). Because I do hand applique, these bigger projects tend to take me a long time.
And if this is not enough, I am contemplating something like THIS beautiful quilt.
