Fabric/Project Diet Roundup - The end of an era

It's been a bit of an epic 6 months.  Projects have been started... for various reasons... and projects have been finished... although certainly not all of them.  A few new lengths of fabric have made their way into my life... but all in all, I think the Fabric/Project Diet has been a success.  BUT, I am glad to see the end of it!

Quilts now on the completely finished pile:

The Giant Chevron

The Butterfly Cot Quilt

Robots and Rockets

Japanese Ladies

Bulls-eye Number II

Quilts that are ALMOST on the completely finished pile/Binding still requiring stitching down:
Tokyo Subway

Reunion Playground

Tops Completed:
Bluebirds & Berries

Tula Pinks 100 Modern Quilt Blocks

There are still plenty of old projects to work on... and I'm quite committed to making an impact on those throughout the rest of the year.  My quilting pile is seriously diminished compared to the start of the year - but there are still tops waiting for their turn to shine.  My major goals for the next few months are to finish the Friends Mystery Stitchery and get the Bluebirds and Berries quilt finished in time for The Country Yard's exhibition in October.  Four months may seem like a long time, but we all know it will disappear in a quilting heartbeat.

Good luck to those other brave souls who also jumped on the Diet bandwagon... I predict a massive upsurge in online sales in early July.


  1. Ah, yes the quilting heartbeat...............doesn't it beat fast! Great finishes, you must be pleased. You now have a fabulous collection of cool quilts.

  2. Fantastic 9 finishes... Can't wait to see what fabrics you're going to get :) hope you'll fid some great sales around :)

  3. That's an awesome stack of finishes or almost-finished. Break out the credit card!

  4. Wow! What an achievement! Now go and treat yourself to some fabric! Greetings from France!

  5. Great finishes -- I am continuing on the fast for another at least 3 months (i had several months of great falter on this diet)

  6. Well done!! Such discipline required but what a spectacular line up :-)
