Time to do. (some) Good

Ahhh... Spring.  The sunny warmth has signaled it's time to get the garden, the house and my waistline in order.  To that end I've been planting things (mostly edibles), spring cleaning, and have started running.  Well, walking with some running thrown in.  By summer I hope to have built up enough stamina to just call it running. 

I'm feeling the itch to start a fresh, new project.  That itch, however, cannot be scratched until existing projects are completed.  I don't have many WIP's at the moment- just a couple of quilts and cushions for a thrifted chair. A short list, I know, but the lovely spring weather is proving to be a distraction.

Priority #1 is this do. Good Stitches quilt, made with colorful scrappy blocks from the Love Circle:

It only needs to be bound.  Since my month was January, it's high time this quilt was finished and shipped off to the Wrap Them in Love Foundation, don't you think? 

Priority #2 is this vintage chair.  Here are the pieces ready to be assembled into cushion covers. 

It would be lovely to finish up this weekend.  I haven't decided what to do about the frame.  I would like to paint it either yellow or aqua, but my family votes for simply re-staining it.  Or I could leave it as is for a truly shabby chic look.  Any suggestions?

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. The do good stitches quilt is beautiful. I love the random grey block in the middle. Such a great touch.

  2. Ooh, your quilt is so pretty! I think painting your chair yellow or aqua would be suuuuper cool. Why does your family prefer just staining it?

  3. Your quilt is lovely, the bright colours so nice after a long dark winter. The chair will look fantastic with it's new cushions.

  4. Love that quilt! The scrappiness and that grey block! Looks like a fun quilt to quilt.

  5. Yay for do.ing good! I was just invited to the Believe circle and cannot wait to start stitching with the group ;) Also... LOVE the fabric for the chair. That's going to be beautiful!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
