The Hundred Day Hustle with Kelsey Sews!

New notebooks mean I am SERIOUS about getting it together! BTW This notebook is great; 1/3 ruled, 1/3 gridded, 1/3 blank, 100% AWESOME!
Wow! September 22, one hundred days until the end of the year! Kelsey from Kelsey Sews is heading up the 100 Day Hustle to encourage us to hustle through our to-do lists and start 2013 with a blank slate. Looking over my goals that I posted at the beginning of this year, I cannot believe how out of control my to-do lists have become! Luckily, I have been a little more productive at sewing than I have been at blogging, but there is still a LOT of work to do. My list (including the "not counting on it " list) comes out to a project a week, which doesn't sound too overwhelming.

My To-Do List (in order of priority)
  1. Christmas Stockings x3 (Joy, Cherry Christmas & Winterkist)
  2. Quilt Baby Quilt (Children at Play) for Husband's Co-worker 
  3. Start & Finish Baby Quilt (Wee Folks) for Friend 
  4. "Two Left Feet" Quilt (Echo) for Brother  *Need help, see below!
  5.  Polaroid Quilt for Other Brother (Random, this will involve Llamas)
  6. Quilt for Sister (No clue)
  7. Love Letters Quilt (Etchings)


This is the quilt. I can't decide what background fabric to use! I originally bought the black, but I am leaning towards flax now...what would you choose?

Would be Nice, but Not Counting on It!
• Christmas Table Runner • Quilt Patchwork Prism • Quilt Xs and Os • Quilt Sew.Happy.Quilt • Finish Super Mario Quilt Top • Finish Medallion Quilt Top

I really love it with the black! Good luck!

I too would choose the black. The fabrics have a lot of light backgrounds already and you wouldn't want them to get lost in the background. This sounds like a fun link-up, I'll consider participating too, if I don't forget to!

Love your list(s). Just creating mine and feel sick at the amount! BUt willlink up and hope for the best! Oh and I would go with teh darker one for your quilt!! Yum.

Marit said... #

That's a lot of quilts to make! I'm chiming in with the ladies above - I think the black will make the prints pop more.

I like the flax! Good luck with your lists, sounds like you will be busy in the next 100 days :)

I vote flax - it just seems to match the tone of your prints.

Janice @ Better off Thread said... #

ooo heading over to sign up. I need this push! I am going to vote for the black. I think it will give your more contrast than the flax. I really think it's apples to oranges, though. Either is going to be beautiful!

Carolyn said... #

I would go with the flax, I think it would offset the colors nicely. Your list looks pretty good!

Heidi Staples said... #

SO hard to choose between those two colors, but I'm leaning toward the...hmm...alright, now I'm not sure again...

I'm going to say black, but honestly I like the flax just as much!

Jennifer said... #

I would choose the black - it makes the colors pop more! cant wait to see more!

Kristy @ Quiet Play said... #

Ooh I need to make a list like this! Great idea!

Oh and as for the fabric choice - I vote the black! It just seems to make the colours pop a bit more!

Kelly said... #

Love the flax! I might have to make my list just to kick my butt into gear ;-)

Lucy | Charm About You said... #

I really love it with the black :)

Ann @thequiltingcats said... #

Just knowing there are 100 days, strike that 99 days, left added stress! Ugh!
Anyway, I love the black. but then again I'm not into all the white/pale quilts being made these days..

Looking at the comments, it seems we're not really helping you narrow it down at all. :) Personally, I like the black. A lot of the fabrics read sort of light to me anyway, so I'd go with the contrast. And this is being totally gender stereotype-y, but for some reason the black feels a little more masculine to me than the flax (though the flax is obviously not girly or anything!)

It's so nice you're making a quilt for your brother! My brother is on my list someday, but not the 2012 list. :P

Jane said... #

Good luck on your list! Since the quilt's for a guy, I'd go for the black.

Kelsey said... #

Thank you for joining in!! I like both so I'm not going to vote - helpful right?! Can't wait to see your projects - the polaroid quilt sounds interesting :)

Alison V. said... #

I like the black! Good luck with your list!

Melia Mae Quilting said... #

I like how you have stockings on your list too. I vote for the black. Good luck with your list.

Wendy said... #

That's quite a list, but so much more well thought out than mine!
