Mid-Month Progress Report

It's been a busy week, with not a lot of time to stitch.  That's been typical this month.  Looking at the work schedules, I knew that March was going to be lean on stitching time.  But there has been some progress on the four WIPs currently in rotation.  Though I don't have pictures of all of them.  

The McCall's Mystery Quilt is this month's "one monthly goal".  The binding has been sewn to the front and I'm working on getting the hand stitching done.  

I'm still working on the second brown Vintage Dress for last month's color.  This dress has lots of little pieces and it's taking a lot longer to assemble. I haven't picked the fabric for this month's purple and yellow dresses.  Those may not get started until April.  

I have made visible progress on Allietare.

A few more red blocks are finished, just nine more left to make.  All the blue alternate blocks are made, they just aren't up on the design wall at the moment.

Poinsettias is moving along slowly.  Since it is my leaders and enders project, it only moves forward when everything else moves forward.  

So I'm still stitching, just not as much as I would like.  I'm hoping that April will be a much slower month at work and that I can pick up some steam with my stitching.  

I'm linking up with Kelly over at My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday.  


  1. Some months are just like that, aren't they? But I think every little bit counts! Looking forward to seeing your new dresses as they are made. That is such a fun pattern idea!

  2. Your projects are all looking great! Keep plugging away in whatever little bits of time you can find. I love your Allietare blocks and can't wait to see more of the dresses.

  3. It happens all the time - other things take priority over quilting. And I guess there is nothing much to do about that. You are still getting some stitching time, that's impressive!

  4. Glad you are getting in a little bit...for your sanity! LOVE LOVE LOVE your allietare - it is just so bold and crisp!!!

  5. The Allietare is a beauty. You did a great job picking those colors without knowing exactly how they would be placed.

  6. It is a gorgeous beauty. I am sure it will be a lovely finish :-)

  7. Wow, great progress! I like the color choices you made for the Allietare.

  8. The Allietare quilt is looking gorgeous! So vibrant!
