August 2022 OMG and Short List from Quilt Paint Create

Another month down, another project finished. I met my goal last month of sewing a shirt. I’ve done well this year finishing my OMGs, which has kept my projects moving.

There are quite a few changes in the list this month.

Project One: I’m still stitching My Sewing Treasures by Bobby G Designs.

Project Two: I started working on a UFO I picked up off the charity table at Guild. Whoever started it including a picture of what the planned quilt would look like, but I’m not going there. I’ll sew up all the pinwheel pieces ...

June 2022 OMG and Short List from Quilt Paint Create

The months go by so fast, summer especially. It’s a bit harder to fit in creative time around all the outdoor activities.

I finished my goal last month of quilting Open Dialogue, and then finished the quilt a few days later.

Project One: I’ve stitched about half of My Sewing Treasures by Bobby G Designs. It’s still in the frame crooked.

Project Two: I haven’t worked on the band sampler. It’s patiently waiting its turn.

Project Three: I want to sew some clothes again. The next item will be a shirt, although I haven’t ...

Sunday Stash May 15, 2022 from Quilt Paint Create

No change in the numbers.

Not much sewing happened this week. When life gets hectic and stressful, stitching becomes the fallback position. I made fair progress on My Sewing Treasures. Sorry – it’s in the frame crooked!

This section has a lot of color changes. Hopefully the next section will go a little faster.

Fabric In: 0.5yards

Fabric Out: 5.25 yards

Net Fabric Out: 4.75 yards

How did you do this week?

May 2022 Short List and OMG from Quilt Paint Create

I’m sitting here watching the rain pour down wishing for a warm sunny spring instead of whatever this is. On the plus side, the weather encourages me to stay inside and sew.

I finished my April OMG, the Margo Handbag.

I have too many projects going again. No more adding projects to the active rotation until I finish a few.

Project One: I’ve stitched about 25% of My Sewing Treasures by Bobby G Designs.

Project Two: The band sampler will return from time out once my Guild demonstrates the stitches for the next two rows at the meeting ...

Sunday Stash April 17, 2022 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in or out.

I haven’t made enough progress on the bag to post another picture. The only other active project is My Sewing Treasures.

I think I’ve stitched a few more spools since I showed it last. Somehow it ended up wonky in the frame, but the stitching is straight.

Fabric In: 0.5yards

Fabric Out: 2.75 yards

Net Fabric Out: 2.25 yards

April 2022 Short List And OMG from Quilt Paint Create

I finished my March OMG, catching up on the band sampler. I also finished Roads. Finishes are good because they make room for new projects.

The band sampler is on a break. My Guild isn’t demonstrating the stitches for the next two rows until May.

Project One: I’m working on a kit called My Sewing Treasures by Bobby G Designs.

Project Two: I will continue working on Open Dialogue.

Project Three: I’m starting the Margo Handbag by Lazy Girl Designs. The instructions come in a ten page booklet. My OMG will be to get through the first ...

A Side Gig from Quilt Paint Create

Most days I only stitch on one project at a time. I have quite a few quilting UFOs, and the idea of a lot of stitching UFOs on top of that is more than I can handle. I like to keep things simple.

Once I started my Guild’s stitch-along (SAL), it became obvious that each month’s assignment wouldn’t take more than a few hours. That left me with a whole lot of stitching time and no project.

Voila. The beauty of stash.

I picked a kit because I can only think hard about one project at a ...

Sunday Stash June 27, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week. A little fabric went out replacing the waistband on a pair of pants.

The big win for the week was finishing the Mill Hill Digging Out kit.

I bought the kit in early April and finished it two months after I started it. That’s record time for me to turn around any project. It feels incredible to have it done already.

If only quilt finishes came as fast.

Fabric In: 7.125 yards

Fabric Out: 2.5 yards

Net Fabric In: 4.625 yards

The May 2021 Short List from Quilt Paint Create

I finished stitching Christmas Eve in April, but didn’t frame it. In spite of all the time spent on the Crazy Quilt Course, hours of work remain. That project feels like it will never end. Very little sewing happened in April.

The Short List categories are UFO, garment, original design, hand work, finishing, classes and other. I’ve used this system for 6+ years to keep me focused. The categories change as my goals and interests change. Categories with nothing in process will not be listed, only active categories.

Original Design – Open Dialogue is still waiting to be quilted ...
