Getting it under control...

Okay, so not only do I have lots of goodies to report that I picked up during the Quilt Shop Hop, I am also in the midst of several projects, none of which have been completed yet. I think I'm going to take heed of my DH's words and complete something before I start something new.

New Project:
I have a baby shower to go to in a couple of weeks so I got the crazy idea that I might be able to start and finish a baby quilt for it. This is a modified version of Amy Smart's Chain Linked quilt. I'm just using bright colors and lots of prints.

Ongoing Projects:

The top is finished to my On the Road to Spring quilt. I have the batting ready; I just need to piece together the back and I'll be ready to put it together.
As my strip stash grows, I keep adding more blocks to my version of Film in the Fridge's string quilt. It's a bit slower since it depends on the variety and type of strips I have in my stash but it's coming along .
Okay, so the stack on the right has been trimmed and stack on the left, well... not so much. This charm pack quilt is going to take a while. Probably quite a while...

Completed projects awaiting quilting: uh, yeah, that's zero.
Completed projects awaiting binding: um, see, yeah, that's zero too.

Okay, so maybe I don't have a lot to show for my progress thus far, but I have goodies that I bought at the Shop Hop!

I really had no idea I had bought quite as much as I did. It was only a few thing here and there, but with 11 shops I guess it added up. I got a great bundle of Amy Butler fabric, a pack of 6 black/white fat quarters, several fat eighths and assorted fat quarters. I've already used some of the dinosaur and pirate fabric for my boy quilt, and I also got some of that Georgia fabric they developed.

Hmmmm.... I love it! I just haven't decided what to do with it. A girl at A Scarlet Thread mentioned using it as part of a t-shirt quilt where the t-shirts are from various GA locations. Maybe. Maybe not. We'll see. Good luck with your projects!
