Work In Progress Quilts

Do you every have those days that don't go as planned?
How about weeks. Or months?
This is one of those months for me in the quilting department at least.
I had plans to finish some projects. 
I won't even bother to tell you about them. I did that at the beginning of the month. Sadly I didn't finish one.

But I did get some sewing done.

An unfinished project on it's last leg of the journey
I am a kind of fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. 
I rarely use a pattern. 
This is one that I came up with just pulling a bunch of blocks together into a row quilt

I wanted the houses to look like Victorian Painted Ladies. 
I added lace to the roofs

This one is a better close up of the lace.
This is a quilt that I did as class many moons ago.
I am kind of considering offering it as an online Quilt Along.
Anyone interested?

This is a quilt top that I did do this month. 
I had all these Patriotic strips in all different sizes.
Being the fly by my pants girl I am I did my adapation of a Jelly Roll quilt.  
I photo'd it vertically but it will actually be horizontal.
I plan to just do straight line quilting.
Using the Jelly Roll method I stitched this top in about 2 hours!

This is the one that started the Jelly Roll idea
I did this earlier in the month to go along with the Purple theme.
I don't know why it is so light.  I have really bad lighting.
The lite strips are actually a pale yellow with purple flowers.
To give the quilt a little brightness. 

So those are the quilts I worked on this month. 
I have had this goal to do at least one donation quilt a month.
At least I have one top on the final stretch!

I am looking for ward to finishing some UFO's in March.
Maybe I'll take the plunge and quilt the House quilt.
