So many projects, so little time :-)

Hello.  My name is Patty and I may have too many projects in flight at the moment.


I am working on my Farmer's Wife blocks, making two of them each week.  (I blog about them here.)

I'm working on the Splendid Sampler as well using Christmas themed fabric.  (Blog about them here.)

I'm working on a new mini that I can't wait to share more about but here is a sneak peak

The project I really need to make time for is finishing my daughter's quilt for her freshman dorm.  There is more fabric sewn together since this photo was taken but essentially everything is still in rows.  I've got decisions to make about what to put in the blank spaces - just low volume fabric or throw a favorite block in there.  And if low volume, big pieces or little pieces?  

I think a part of me wants to slow time - high graduation is a month away and I feel I'll blink and she'll be off at school.

And then there is this beautiful stack of fabric calling my name waiting to be turned into a wedding quilt.

Finally, I'm working on binding and finishing my snapshots quilt.

Don't get me wrong - I really love having multiple projects underway at the same time.  As you can see, the fabrics in each of these are very very different so it is fun to bounce around between solids and low volume and then onto Christmas!

All I need is more time in the day!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. All good things :) Have you considered the http://www.fandominstitches.com/ patterns? Any of those would be wonderful in with a Dumbledore quote.

  2. I read somewhere we don't have to much fabric we have to little time to sew. So true, right!

  3. Plenty of projects maybe, but all so lovely, and as you say, a great variety. The quilt for your daughter is going to be wonderful!

  4. I too like to have several projects going at the same time. Your projects are all great, I love the fabrics in your Farmer's Wife blocks.

  5. You certainly are making wonderful progress on so many beautiful projects. But I can't wait to see your daughter's quilt as a finished top. I like your idea of a scrappy low volume fill between the rows.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
