BMQG Precious/WIP Challenge - Confessions of a Fabricholic

I have been craving for some piecing this past week. Last few weeks I have been spending a lot of time quilting and binding. So, I had to start another new project with Moda's Little Black dress mini charm pack. As if I didn't have enough UFOs :P



I am making Elizabeth Hartman's Pod quilt from the craftsy class: Inspired Modern Quilts. She is an amazing teacher and love all her quilt designs.

I do have plans of making some mini quilts with these other mini charm packs. These are 2.5" squares and are so adorable. Aren't these cute little things?


Hmmm gear up for this picture heavy post.
Now, coming to the Precious/WIP Challenge. To read more about it check out BMQG webiste for Precious/WIP Challenge. I think all the fabrics I own are my precious little bundles. But here are my most favorite ones which I want the quilts in the coming year,2013:


1. Spot's favorite color: 

I bought this last year and since added Good night Spot fabrics to the stack, both by Andover fabrics. This is definitely I precious which I need to cut into.


2. Frogs by Andover Fabrics

Frogs by Andover Fabrics

3. Fox Trails by Riley Blake designs

3. Fox Trails by Riley Blake Designs

4. Oops a Daisy by Moda

I have ton of fabrics in this line to make the entire bedroom set starting from King/Queen size quilt, baby quilt, window curtains, pillows, pillow shams etc. 

 

5. Lost and Found by Riley Blake designs



6. Apple of My Eye by Riley Blake desings - a queen size quilt probably. Haven't decided yet



7. 10 little things by Moda



8. Grow with Me by Deb Strain


9. Peak Hour by Riley Blake designs 



10. Puppy park by Riley Blake designs 


11. Fly away by Robert Kaufman


12. Black/White quilt - Half Moon Modern by Moda and couple of Tuxedo by Riley Blake Designs



Book Quilts:

Also for next year wanted to make few(2-3) book quilts from:
  1. Pixel Play by Emily Cier
  2. Hexa go go by Tacha Bruecher
  3. Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman

So, these are a lot of quilts to make in the next 13 months. So, I hoping that I can at least complete 4 - 5 new quilts by end of April 2013 to participate in the Precious/WIP Challenge. At least 12 quilts by end of December 2013. I know its a big leap but this is the challenge I'm setting for myself.

Also I need to wrap-up the following UFOs:

  1. Xs and Os quilt
  2. Groovy quilt
  3. Apple Core quilt 
  4. Indian Summer baby quilt
  5. Mini Hexies garden quilt

This post was really overwhelming for me just putting together all the fabrics I have in one place. I have come to a big realization(which I kind of knew), I don't need any more fabrics before I complete all of these quilts. So, I better stop buying fabrics now, before our guest bedroom looks like a little fabric shop ;). I bet my DH already thinks it is one ;).

P.S. this is just a small list, I have more fabric ;) to make complete quilts ;)....ha...ha..
