Week 5: The Pokequilt (aka WIP Wednesday)

I came, I saw, I sewed.

I conquered the rows!


I still have another three rows to piece together.ย  Then it’s border time! Woot!

Once I finish this quilt top, then it’s onto A’s quilt.ย  We’re still trying to figure out what she’s wanting, but one thing is for certain, it will have lots of yellow in it. ๐Ÿ™‚

The CSTWNBF (or the Cross Stitch That Will Never Be Finished) Week 792

Er, ok, so the week count isn’t right.ย  But, it has been like over two years since I first put needle to thread.ย  At least I’m finally making steady progress on this project.ย  Who knows? Christmas 2012 may be the year that everyone sees this sucker framed, LOL.

It’s all about progress! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Week 4: The Pokequilt (aka WIP Wednesday)

Things were pretty quiet around here which made working on K’s quilt easy!ย  Not only did I piece together all of the B blocks, I also did all of the ironing *shudder*

The plan this week is to start piecing the blocks together, but with everything going on this week –a dentist appointment, helping out in A’s class, and regular non-quilting stuff–we’ll see how much I actually get done.

I’m already eying fabric for A’s quilt, but I’m resolute to only work on one quilt at a time.ย  *tries to stay strong*

The CSTWNBF (or the Cross Stitch That Will Never Be Finished) (Again)

A big thanks to Hugh Jackman and the release of Reel Steel.ย  Because of it (and my lack of desire to see it), Mike was busy watching the movie and I rocked the cross-stitching scene! Woot! I think I can officially say that I’ve hit the halfway point.ย 

ย ย 
And that’s it for this week! Let’s just hope Mike finds another movie to watch so I can make some more progress, LOL!

The Pokequilt!

Well, I’ve kept my foot to the foot pedal and I’ve made some pretty good progress on this quilt.ย  Of course, K wants to know why it’s taking “so long” for me to finish it.ย  My answer is always the same: 1.700 squares, kid.

So, I managed to make all the rows for the 17 block As.

Lots and lots of squares!

Now, it’s onto the block B (I’ve got eighteen to make).ย  Then it will be the day (or more likely week) of ironing.ย  Yawn. Like major yawn.ย  Ironing is absolutely my least favorite part of quilting.ย  Good thing I have several other projects to do if it gets too boring! ๐Ÿ˜€

Quilting Update

So, K’s quilt consists of about a million squares (OK, more like 1,700) and two block designs (cleverly named Block A and Block B).ย  Without further ado, I present an incomplete Block A.ย  I’m making all of the rows for Block A and Block B before I actually piece them together, but it’s nice to look like some progress is getting made!

The quilt

The goal is to have four quilts done from start to finish by the end of the year.ย  Er, yeah, I think it’s a bit of a stretch too.ย 

So I have started sewing K’s Pokemon Black and White Inspired Quilt.

I’m going to do my best to post weekly updates…let’s see how it goes. ๐Ÿ˜€

Saw it. Liked it. Had to cross-stitch it.
