WIP 2/20/13

 Ongoing project, in the order I get to work on them...
 I have the perfect color for the border and binding of this quilt!
It is Kona Cotton Cerise and I think it has just the right pop without overwhelming the quilt colors.
The HST quilt is quilted and I sergred around the edge in preparation for binding.  With all the bias edges on there was some jockeying around, but it is all sewn up ... debating on ash binding or maybe teal?   
The blocks for the scrappy string cousin quilt are done and ready to be sewn together.  I have a lovely backing picked out all ready!

My crazy plan for the year, each new project must be balanced by the completion of an existing one from the list below, so, the above are listed in that criteria, ending with a new for year project meaning I need to pick off the list something to finish up next before starting this....   

This is the pile I started on my my daughters college quilt.... Its the second pile since in the fall I was collecting red.while.grey with elephants, but no matter,people change thier minds, I think this time for the better, and I now have a nice red white grey pile. 

She is attending Baylor in the fall!  I was originally going to to a strip quilt, like the scrap on in the works, alternating green/yellow, but an open to recommendations and suggestions. Not too much white since it will be in a dorm room.
She was admitted to the honors dorms which are in the center of the campus, one of the oldest buildings.  She sleeps under 4 quilts I made here at home, so I want this one to be a quilt cheery and warm for her new space, her new adventure!

Olds quilt list :
 Rainbow blocks, Chubby Stars QAL, American Jane blocks, Round & Round, Pinwheel Sampler, postage stamp, Swoon, Arcadia (HST- called up, not done)
