A quick gallop around my sewing table

Nothing happening on my metaphorical design wall, though things are stirring in the depths of my brain.  In the meantime I'm keeping things ticking over and making a few decisions.  

First up, the next quilt in the hoop will be the circles one with the colour definitions.  I had pretty much landed on the side of Quiet Quilt, which should by rights be next, but that would leave me quilting two circle-y ones in a row, which might prove a bit much so I'm going to shuffle them about.  
Here's a look at all my other little bits and pieces.

The next batch of shirt circles ready to go.  These are this week's as I'm all caught up now.

Another quilt back is being pieced, though, things being what they are it's not the one I'm going to need next!

I'm getting in a bit of quilting on this, unblogged, top.  It's a version of the Lego quilt: strips finished width 1" and is destined for someone who doesn't read the blog. 

Last, but not least, I'm making another Alabama Chanin garment, this time a skirt.

Despite my lack of a proper project I am linking up with Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday and Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making.

A quick "gallop" around your sewing table? Hah! I have a cup of hot coffee in one hand, so I'm glad I didn't have to ACTUALLY gallop to read this! I'm curious about what you're making. I'm a first-time visitor here via the linky on Love Laugh Quilt. Your hand stitching is so beautifully straight and even and I was thinking I was looking at pictures of quilting, but then the straight pins in the photo with the green and white fabric confused me because I've never seen anyone baste a quilt with pins like that. Are you quilting fabric for a garment, and if so, is there batting involved? What is this skirt you're making? I've got a skirt on my own agenda this week.

Have you watched the video on on the "Six Minute circle"? More than that--but interesting--I don't know about gluesticking tho' take a peek at Twiggy and Opal's blog to see the circles there...hugs, Julierose

I had not heard of Alabama Chanin before, so of course, I had to look her up. Very interesting! Her journal site defines her process with pictures. I could probably live on that site for a couple of hours. Thank you!

Pleased with your choice of the next quilt to be quilted!

How nice to have a variety of projects to choose from. I have having to piece backings but sometimes it just needs to be done. Sorry it isn't the one you'll need next.

Like the logic you used to determine what to quilt next!
