New HST Project

I guess you can say I am inspired!!! I am starting a new project. I'm not 100% sure about my exact direction, but I do plan on using HST (Half Square Triangles). Picked out a charm pack from the stash and plan to also add some Kona Snow. Let's hope I finish fast. I tend to lose interest quickly. Wish me luck

Completed Project

Hopefully over the next few days I will be completing my first project for 2013. Can you believe it? It's already October and I have not finished one thing to completion. Truth be told, I have only worked on three projects the entire year. My completed (or soon to be completed) project will be my Round Robin quilt top. This was a fun interactive project with members of KMQG. We started with a quilt block and hosted rounds where various guild members worked on each others quilts. We supplied approx 5 yards of fabric and set guidelines to determine if others could add their own fabric or not. It went several months and for me was completely....stressful.
The fear of working with someone else's fabric struck a fear in me which I didn't know existed. However, I made it through and was actually very impressed with the results. I am in the process of starting to bind the quilt. It was quilted by my wonderful friend Pat Pike.

 Photo's soon!

I seem to have ran out of inspiration lately. Haven't finished a single project all year. I plan to work on backing for my round robin quilt. Hopefully Ill get that finished and off to the longarmer.

Enjoy swaps? Participate in several yearly? What's your favorite? I don't join in many swaps, but one has got me captivated. I am a sucker for totes, pouches, purses, etc. The PLPS (Pretty Little Pouch Swap) found on Flickr currently in its 6th round, I have truly enjoyed so much. I am not at all interested in what I see out there in most swaps, I say most becuase I obviously havent seen them all. Some swaps are too traditional, others swap items too often. Im not interested in having a swap event every month, even every other month, to me that would get old FAST! However I love that almost everyone in this swap is very MODERN and very creative. I love the mosaics, the fabric, and the time that seems to be put into the timing of the swap as well as the members of the group and their abilities. Dont be afraid if you are new to sewing. They have different skill levels to choose from so that you dont have to feel intimidated with the strong skills of other sewers. It is a really fun swap, so if you haven't checked it out so. Sew What if you are a beginner, everyone has to start somewhere.
