{Weekend Update} and Future {Quilts}

Ok, so this post is a bit late... my whole family has been fighting colds for a few weeks and I still feel run down.  My guest room (a.k.a. sewing project room) is full of drawers of soon-to-be quilts.  I admit I feel like I've been so busy (and sick) lately that I haven't made sufficient progress on ANY of them. 

I DID finish the scarves for the giveaway and they are officially off in the mail.  I'm posting an Infinity Scarf Tutorial tomorrow, so keep an eye out!
Here's the fabric for a future string quilt that will use 2.5" strips cut from the fantastic Tufted Tweets line of fabrics from Laurie Wisbrun. 

To make the fabrics pop a bit more in this quilt, I'm going to use Kona Solids in Coal and Iris.  This quilt is going to be simplisticly sweet and a great pattern for letting fabulous fabics be the focus.  Join me in making this quilt by following my step-by-step tutorials with the Stacked Chairs Quilt-Along!  The Quilt-Along will start next Monday and I hope you'll join in, or at least follow along and give feedback and comments.

So many beautiful fabrics waiting in the wings!

I will have one finished project to show off by the end of the week and it's for a very important little man.  Elliott's Lagoon quilt is almost finished!  I decided to go with parallel "wonky" lines for the quilting.  And, of course, I'm still working on the Folk Dance Quilt in lovely jewel tone fabrics.

Stay tuned...
