Getting Busy!

There is an eminent move in my family’s near future, but I’m ready.  Before packing I need to finish up all my current sewing projects.  I spent some time yesterday and I almost have this quilt finished:

It’s the mini quilt I started in the Luke Haynes class a few weeks back ~ I added some quilting and a key!  I’m working on the binding today, so that’s one thing off my list.

I finished this block for the NEON fabric block challenge ~ it’s so totally eighty’s.  I like it, but I’ve seen some blocks from other members that blow me away!

Started another quilt too… it’s going to be a baby quilt for a friend who had her baby 3 months ago.  Finally getting to it!

And I’ve started quilting my Spring String Quilt and adding the binding.  I wanted to get ALL of this done plus PMQG BOM before the meeting tomorrow night… who knows… I still have some time 😉

What to do… what to do?

Last night the PMQG held their 3 year anniversary party with the guild meeting, and it was great in so many ways!

First off, Michael Miller sent our guild some neon fabrics for a quilt challenge.  I’m not immediately attracted to neon, however, I do love a challenge… and using neon in anything I do will be a BIG challenge.  I’ve been looking at this all day trying to find my inspiration chanting “what to do?”

Here are the fat eighths we were given (so super generous:  thanks MM and PMQG!!) The neon solids are oversaturated with dye so they are very stiff.  I’m curious how they will wash, they absolutely need pre-washing!!  I’m still just thinking on this one… all that comes to mind is a side ponytail scrunchy and matching layered skirt… I don’t know *yet* how this will translate into: QUILT.
