Summer Sewing Fairy Face Designs - mid-term review

If you remember, in May I joined:
FairyFace Designs

As Sarah is calling for Mid-Summer check-in, let's start with the original list:

1. Finish the Lily's Quilts QAL quilt

done, covers my sister's bed now

2. Make some more of these (i.e. wallets) for gifts

done, received, and there was much rejoicing ;)

3. Make 2 pillows with the hexie pieces from Lynz

not done - I'm actually thinking about making a picnic blanket instead, still drafting the final layout, but I do hope to be able to finish it this summer

4. Back, quilt and bind the first quilt top I pieced last December and then put aside for times I would be more confident with quilting (and for the decision what to back it with)

done, my Mum got it for her birthday and she likes it :)

5. Finish designing a quilt for these beauties:

and at least start the cutting - not done, in the meantime the green proved to be just pefect for lining two bags (and there is still quite a lot left). I need more time to think, so it will probably become autumn/winter project.

6. I also have some plans which would involve combining quilting with my now somewhat neglected drawing, but I don't have any details for you yet - not done, needs to wait for autumn/winter, I'm afraid. 

In the meantime, new ideas and projects came up, so here is the additional part of the list:

7. Try paper piecing

done and I definitely want to make some more

8. Make a pouch for my sister

done - with pink and orange fabric, as promised ;)

9. Make chocolate, lime and orange quilt for my sister-in-law.
No photos, as I'm still waiting for the fabrics to arrive. I'm going to use Kate Conklin's There's a Square in There design.

10. Find or design a pattern and sew a quilt from the Australian fabrics I got from my cousin

in progress, I'm going to cut and sew the borders this week

11. Start making blocks from Civil War Quilts - I would like to sew them from various second-hand shirts but I still need to get them.

 As usual, a big hug to all those who managed to read the whole post  :)
