An Earnest Attempt.....

I am going to make an earnest attempt to finish the unfinished projects that have been calling to me....
I began this Spiderweb quilt, called Pop Stars by Kathy Doughty , eons ago....

.
I can actually see the end in sight....I love how this quilt is coming together and it is no little wisp of a quilt.  This one will end up about 75+ inches by 80+ inches.  It is a bit smaller that the quilt from Material Obession 2.

   
 My slow progress by no means is a reflection of my attitude towards this quilt....I just get distracted way too easily....


But I am doubling down my efforts and am determined to finish this one soon! 

I have also added block 6 and 7 to my Rose and Star Portfolio....


I like how this project is coming together.  The happy kitchen-y fabrics are fun.

  
I have purchased several of the Michael Miller Kitchen Collection fabrics....they fit well with the flavor of this quilt!  Get it!  Flavor!  hee hee.....I should go on the road, right???


And I am having a great time piecing these....they go together much more quickly than the Grandmothers Flower Garden {my other unfinished project}.....oh well....

Happy Tuesday!

Happier for seeing your projects Mary and your socks! hehe They look like shamrocks and strawberries! Cute

Love your rose star blocks - I hope to get around to making one of these after finishing a couple of things...

And I want to make one of these colourful spiderwebs too! Well just about anything you get up to..

I think you are remarkable with your time frames. I have been working for weeks to put a cape together. I love the spiderweb and I really like the cherry block's fabric. Very nice. Cheers. LJ

I am also trying to finish some of my UFO's. I don't remember having ADD growing up, but I definitely do when it comes to my quilting projects....I am always thinking about something else : ) Your spiderwebs are gorgeous, and I know whenever this quilt is finished it will be super gorgeous!

Linda said...

I love your choice of fabrics. In the Spider quilt have you used specific ranges. If so, what are they, please?

Love it all...as usual ;-)

You live and learn... I think that's why we abandon various projects. We see a new challenge, and want to start it right away... we want to learn another new thing. That's not a bad thing.

I love your spider web. I'm going to sign up as a follower so I can see it finished... or not. Whatever you decide. You made me smile, and that's a good thing.
Hugs!

At least when you get distracted you get distracted by other pretty projects!! All your fabric choices are wonderful!

Patchwork and Play said...

The background fabrics on the Spiderweb quilt are SO perfect! I love the variations you've used! And the cherry fabric- is there anything more wonderful than cherry fabric! And maybe your Rose Stars could be called Kitchen Stars! LOL!

Material Mary said...

The spiderweb quilt--stunning...the paper pieced blocks are just so yummy....Here's encouragement to finish them up!!
