|Front and back fabrics|
First project: I'm working on a weighted blanket for my niece's son and hopefully when I'm finished, it will help him sleep better. I'm making it from some space fabric that he picked out. It's not really a difficult thing to make except that I'm trying to make it so that it can be made longer as he grows. So I'm making it with an inner lining that will be weighted and a cover. I've drawn the plans and am waiting for the delivery of the poly pellets (the weight) and a roll of velcro (to keep the lining from sliding around inside the cover).
Second project: I'm getting ready to do a quilt along using triangles (see button on side if you're interested). I don't think that I've ever done a project with triangles before. It begins today, March 28th, so I spent some time going through my stash to see what I might want to use. I found some fat quarters that I'd been collecting that were aqua and red. Of course I did not have enough fabric for the project so I headed off to the quilt store to find a few more fabrics. I found what I needed and am all ready for cutting instructions. Here are my fabrics.

Third project: While waiting for supplies for project #1 and instructions for project #2, I had a desire to sew something. I found a twister wall hanging that I had laid out a while back. It's made with 2" squares - I had bought some precuts from Primitive Gatherings at Quilt Festival. So . . . I've been sewing it together. So far I have each row of 9 squares sewn together and some of the rows sewn together. After I finish sewing it, I will cut it with the Itty Bitty Primitive Pinwheels Tool and sew it back together.
On Monday I have a class at my local quilt shop, Quilter's Crossing, making fabric bowls. It's a class that I originally signed up for about 2 years ago. It got rescheduled several times and then I couldn't go. I've tried several times to make it and my chance is finally here. Look for some pictures next week. Of course, I've got to cut some 1 1/4 inch strips over the weekend before I go.
Have a good Friday and a great weekend! I'm off to pick up a quilt from the quilter today.
