I like working on more than one project at a time. It hasn't been unusual for me to have 4 or 5 quilts going at once. This year I decided to limit the number of concurrent quilt projects to just three in hopes of making more progress on individual projects. One of those is always a leaders and enders project. Poinsettias has been that project since February of 2014.

Just a few more sub units to go on this one. If these are all done by the time I finish Grand Illusion, Poinsettias will take it's place on the design wall.
Grand Illusion is moving along.

I did an inventory of all the strips that were cut and all the sub units already assembled. I'm going to stick with the original plan to make 5 rows. The last two blocks for row 4 are almost finished and I'm in assembly line mode for the last 4. I think all the blocks will done by the end of May and the borders by end of June. I'm not going to do the original pieced borders, I'm thinking simple strip borders may help calm down the business of the blocks a bit. Thankfully, I didn't get very far on the pieced blocks that Bonnie used.
The last project is the block of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I got behind on these when I had my business trip last month, but I'm all caught up and working on this month's green blocks.

There's only one on the design wall at the moment, but two more should join it tonight or tomorrow.
That's it for me this week. For more sewing room progress, check out all the links over at Patchwork Times.
