WIP IT GOOD! Challenge Report

Sarah, who is a fellow swapper in the spiderweb block swap i joined, has a great challenge on her blog - to finish up WIPs before May 18. here's my report for week 5.

1. quilt and bind emily's quilt - still languishing in the craft room!
2. quilt and bind Quilts for Kids top - DONE!
3. set blocks for M-V baby quilt in top, quilt and bind - good thing the baby's not due for another month!
4. block (strip) for Red & Aqua Bee 2 for April - DONE!
5. finish mom's quilt top, quilt, and bind - i did get the 2 missing border pieces cut, but still haven't attached them quilting is 99% done and the binding is prepped but I RAN OUT OF THREAD AT 10PM!!!!
6. finish all 12 spiderweb blocks for swap - DONE!
7. make a quilt from my own fabric to send in with Quilts for Kids quilt - DONE!

realizing that there's probably no way i'd get everything on my list done before May 18, priorities had been #1, #5 and #7. #7 is now done, and i should finish #5 tonight.

I like your spiderweb quilt very cool! That sucks about running out of thread. You have to get a whole spool for just a little bit. I hate it when that happens

thanks! the spiderwebs blocks are all going to be mailed in for a swap, but i wanted to lay them out to show mark the pattern they make.

i used up three different spools of virtually identical pink thread and then to run out so close to the end just drives me insane!
