Are you focusing girls??

It really helps me focusing on a few projects. It is hard because I get tempted starting on new ones all the time. One of my focus projects is the easter bunnies. It is a pattern called Bunny Tales designed by Jo Ann Mullaly.

Today I sewed it together using only light green and pink. Feels a little bit to sweet at the moment, but I guess when spring comes it will look good on my wall. Will baste it this week and hopefuly start quilting on it.

While working in my sewingroom I started to look for some japanese fabrics. And that brought me to move all my japanese fabrics from the cupboard to this drawer. Now I have all my japanese fabrics at one place. Looks good doesn't it. I love japanese taupe fabrics, and I hope all shops joining our annual quiltmeeting in march brings a lot of them, because I need moooooooooooooore of them :)

I have quilted all blocks in the Christmas Wish quilt and today I got down on the floor and traced the border I want to quilt around it.

And while doing that I also traced the same border around my Leannes House quilt. This one have been missing the outher border for several years, so now it is time to finish this quilt.

A little sidetrack from what I planned to focus on this week. I had no more stitchery to work on, and me with no stitchery in my bag, is not working :) But guess what, I have traced all the blocks for this cat BOM, so I just grabbed january cat out of the box and started stitching on it.
Focus next week:
Cat BOM
Quilting on A Christmas Wish
Quilting on Leannes House
Basting Bunny Tales
But I know there will be sidetracs LOL

Saying for today:

My cat speaks sign language with her tail.

I just love your bunny quilt. The embroidery work is so cute. That would look just so pretty laying over a couch or chair. So pretty! Your Leanne House quilt is fabulous. It is so pretty.I love taupe fabrics. I really like using pretty bright flowers with the taupe's. I enjoy your blog a lot, and will be back again. Happy quilting!

Your bunny quilt does look very spring like. It will be a good one to set out during the spring months. I like it very much. JoAnn designs very nice stitchery projects.

I notice that you do a lot of stitchery projects that are turned into quilts. I have just started getting into that this past year.

Maria said...

Fnis! Ja, jeg er faktisk også ret så fokuseret i disse uger på min Harmoni BOM. Og så bare en enkelt ting mere. Jeg syntes, din liste med focus projekter bliver længere for hver uge eller tager jeg fejl?
Alt ser i øvrigt skønt ud! Knus

SD Janet said...

I love stitchery projects. Where did you get the Cat BOM? I would really like to find it. Love the bunny wall hanging too.

LeKaQuilt said...

Her var det mange flotte prosjekt. Kanin teppet ser søtt og flott ut, Gail Pan's små stichery blokker er nydelig med røde kanter og Januars katte stichery er bare heeelt nydelig. Er dette et mønster eller mnd prosjekt ???
Nå må du gi Frida ekstra kos fra Puselusken og meg :o)

How many projects are you working on!! The bunny quilt is really nice!

Satu said...

Hej May Britt, I just admire your style of focusing. I would like to focus too, but I have too many projects going, it's difficult to choose... And your bunny quilt is so fresh;)

siv hege said...

You are such a good planner!! Your Leanne quilt reminded me of my own, stuck in a box. Hm....focus, focus.....

Cindy said...

I think your Leanne quilt is my new favorite of your wonderful projects!

Sue-Anne said...

I love the Bunny Quilt. The colours are so fresh and "spring" like. You must be proud of yourself, you achieve so much in such a short time.

Colleen said...

I have been stitching on my Bunny Tales too :o) Love all your projects and definitely love that great fabric stash!

Kaaren said...

Excellent way to stay focused, May Britt. I know writing things down sure helps me.

Have a super week and I hope you get lots done.

Judith Tetley said...

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Great bunny quilt top and I do believe you will be real glad you chose the pink and green and if for any reason you are not happy later I will gladly take that "quilt" off your hands---but now a cat bom is really up my alley--are they still available someplace---have fun stitching!!!
Hugs, Di

Wendy said...

Jytte said...

Hvor er din bunny quilt blevet flot. Det er skønne forårsfarver, du har brugt. Og tanken om forår er virkelig dejlig i denne strenge vinter. Ja det er smukke ting du syr og jeg bliver altid glad af at følge din blog.

Teresa said...

You are doing so well with your focusing and I just love all the projects and how you are making them.

The prior post and the "blue hour" are just fascinating. That blue is so intense. I would love to see that in person.

Happy Stitching!

Maddie Can Fly said...

I second Janet. Who is the designer for the Cat BOM blocks? I would love to do this also.

Penne said...

I noticed that you are quilting the Christmas Wish quilt by Gail Pan Designs. I also made that quilt, I am so stumped on how to quilt it. Wondering how you decided to quilt on it.....

Love all your work.

Mary Ann said...

May Britt, I have my own Leanne's House to finish, too!
I'm really trying to focus on finishing up some projects, as well!
It sure feels good, getting to cross a project off the list!!! :o)

Hey May Britt! Your pink and green bunnies are so darn CUTE! :0) Can't wait to see what you make them into. And your Christmas Wish quilt is looking fabulous too. As to your sidetrack ... I think I took a similar turn off and can't seem to find my way back ... or is it that I'm just not trying very hard cos I'm enjoying my sidetrack! Tee! Hee! Hee! oh ... if you like kitty stitcheries, make sure you check Bronwyn Hayes' blog ... kitty stitchery available now! have fun stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Tror at nå som jeg endelig har fått fokuset vekk fra bald + gult + årskiftet og diverse, blir det mer søm i måneden som kommer.
Resten av uka blir det småsaker med blikket rettet mot bløte sybokser-modeller.
Lykke til med dine prosjekter!

Megan said...

May Britt - I too would be interested to know how to obtain the cat BOM.

Maria said...

Hej.
Om du har lyst at lege med, ligger der en award og venter på dig på bloggen min. Maria

EJ180 said...

Looking good May Britt. I too am working on my old projects.

siv hege said...

You inspire me! I have an award for you on my blog :)

Jenni said...

Your quilts and stitcheries are always lovely May Britt. I love the saying at the end of the post about the cat's tail too. One of my dogs Chloe speaks with her tail. The favourite one is Guilty Tail, where she flicks the end only, accompanied by a guilty face, and I know she's been up to something!

Det ser ut til å være mye lekkert i den "japanskuffen" din. Jeg har tatt fram en gd del av mine smalstripete her nå for å putte dem inn i ett teppe i lag med en haug med blomsterstoffer. Nydelige farver å jobbemed.

Hei May Britt. Kva er Cat BOM?
