Wednesday WIP {Sunrise is Born!}

Wowie, what a crazy amount of sewing lately.  I have about six more weeks of frantic sewing until I am done with everything for the two shows I have coming up.  And then I can breath.
 
--FINISHES--
 
{This Dance}: Forms of a Dress Challenge - finished and turned in at the guild meeting last night!  When I see her next it will be at my first real quilt show!!
 
 
Private Swap with Megan from Silver Threads of Happiness - done and officially in the mail!!  And still totally top secret!
 
Flying Geese for Charity Auction Quilt - the guild I belong to makes a quilt together each year which is then raffled off and the proceeds go to a local charity.  Well, the 2012 quilt was already made prior to my coming to the guild, but I did get to make a few flying geese for next years quilt!!  Pretty awesome!
 
 
--NEW--
 
{At Sunrise}: Confetti Quilt
I have started a new confetti style quilt that will be of the sunrise I see during the winter from my sewing table.  It doesn't have much form yet, but I am loving playing with all those bits of scrappy fabric... and it's the perfect way to clean up and repurpose all those scraps from my whirlwind of projects lately!
 
Here's a little glimpse... I'm sure I'll do a full post on it soon!
 
 
--IN PROGRESS--
 
Name Game Swap -- due by 15 March
I have assembled the background and ready to take the next steps with this one.
 
--ON PAUSE--  Spinning Starlets {English Paper Piecing} -- a.k.a. I've reached a new level of crazy!
I will pick this up again once my quilt show pieces are d-o-n-e; only 6 weeks to go!  Following along with the Block Party at Selfsewn; creating Rose Stars.  You can read about my overall experience with English Paper Piecing!
 
Laughing Leaves with Frieda Anderson
More of the project can be seen here.  Can't wait to roll up my sleeves and dig back in!  You can also check out what I learned about using fusible in an art quilt!
Still no deadline for this one.  The way things are going, maybe I pick this up once my show pieces are done?

And it seems weird not to have a picture of the pups. 
All that walking path and they have to share the same inch of dirt and sniff the same smell. 
Ahh Sisters! (not related by blood, but in every other way)

Wow, never heard of a confetti quilt so looked at your dogs in a forest path one and my goodness, how amazing that you can turn those bitty scraps into that amazing quilt! Can't wait to see this next one take shape!
