WIP Wednesday #17

Today is going to be a Work In Progress Wednesday.   I will be linking up with Freshly Pieced.  

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Completed Projects:

I completed only Grandpa's Cards this week even though I hinted of it last week.  I never did get a good picture of it but posted it any way (Good meaning out in the sun, instead we got inside under Julia).  Speaking of Julia she is just 11 weeks old tomorrow and she is a moving baby now.  OK not crawling, but she can roll from the back to the front and back again.  The last 2 times she slept today she did it on her tummy (her doing not ours). She is not content anymore to stay where she is put, so pictures like the one below will get harder to take.

In Progress:
I am making 2 quilts that will be like Fire In The Sky (the bright orange quilt for those with slow memory's). This time, one is a Batik in Blue/Yellow the other is what my wife calls 80's fabric (or so my wife describes them.) They will be 5 blocks wide and 6 long so bigger then the pictures here.

The one in batik's I am waiting on some material I ordered to show up.  The other one all blocks are done now and I need to start cutting up the sashes and sew them together.

This is another batik quilt that I am working on. I have just over half of the top sewn together and I believe I have enough cut out to sew the rest together.  I  just need to find time to sit down and do it.

These 3 blocks are not mine (Richard's), they belong to my wife Tanya.  This is what she got done while I was at work today.  I am interested to see how this turns out.  For those that have been following along with us, we plan to make a quilt for every member of our family (mine and my wife's brothers and sisters, all the kids, parents and grand parents that are alive).  These I am told will go towards a quilt she is making for one of her sisters, or her sister in law.

Ready To Quilt:
I am getting behind on quilting my tops I have 5-6 I think now in the box.  My wife basted one for my sister and this week I finally got it quilted.  I did such a large amount of work quilting it that I ran out of umph before finishing the binding.  Hopefully I can find some time for this weekend.

Ongoing Projects:
I am now interested in making quilts for others if you know any one looking to have a quilt made, send them my way.  I also have a few quilts listed on my etsy shop.  I am also looking for some new swaps to join if any one has some good ideas or suggestions.  I am already doing 2 - 12 1/2 inch swaps but looking for more things to do. This week my wife and I also joined in the new quilters quilt along. The button can be found on my blog on the right side or in a couple different posts this last week.

Planned Quilts:
I sat down this week with my wife and we made a list of a few things we have in the works and a few things I would like to do and the list has over 50 items on it.  So no lack of ideas here.

Finished: 1 June, 10 May, 8 April, 10 March, 10 February, 7 January
46 Total for Year wow only 9 more quilts tell I meet my 55 projects and I have to set the bar higher maybe I should go for 100?.

I love the blacks that your wife made - they're lovely. And that's quite an amazing goal to make a quilt for everyone in your families.

You and your wife have been really busy. Love your projects. Love Grandpa's Cards.

Wow you've been busy! I'm sure you'll have those quilts finished up by next month knowing your sewing speed.

If you're on Flickr there is this group you can join for fabric swaps

Hi Tanya (and Richard). I love the quilt blocks that you have made. They are really cute. But I was wondering, are the centers of the blocks fussy-cut or appliqued? I think these would make a beautiful baby quilt. Your work is really looking good and I am so impressed by all that you and Richard do. Yall (a southern expression) accomplish so much and make such beautiful things. I really enjoy visiting your blog and looking at everything you do.
