Clamshell Club - February 2011

I forgot last month - sorry!  All this progress is actually what I was doing in January; there hasn't been much action this month.  But since I forgot, here is where I am now.
You see - I actually started construction!  I'm just lining them up and pinning one at a time and hand-stitching away.  I'm not worried about perfection for this project.  It is about 55" wide since this will be a throw size.  And I realized I didn't have enough greens, so I found some more green fabrics and have just now started cutting them out and basting them so I can get back to piecing.  Let me tell you, it's going faster than I expected, and it's FUN!
This will have to go on the back burner for a bit as I quilt one baby quilt, and piece and quilt another one.  But it's a great TV watching project.

It's Been A While

I haven't had ready access to a computer at home, so even though I've been working on some projects, I haven't been able to blog much.  I'm going to try and schedule some posts while I'm here so my poor blog doesn't look neglected and you, my bloggy friends, don't have information overload from a long post.
The big project I've been working on this past month is a baby quilt for my sorority sister/twin.  Of course, what with my family having the flu, a sinus infection, and pneumonia a couple of weeks ago, it didn't get finished in time for Baby's arrival.  But the top is done, basting is complete, and hopefully I'll be able to actually work on the quilting this week.  I'd really love to get it finished and off to them soon.
