Strip Club Quilt Anyone??

I am having some troubles... trouble getting back into the swing of things and getting back into my sewing room. I have done alot of re-organizing and have almost every thing put away in its own spot.

Now to get back to the sewing.. I obviously can't sew for as long with out some major breaks because of my arm but I need to get back in there and start busting some stash. Is there anyone out there that is in love with Strip Club Patterns? If you haven't heard of them before they are Cozy Quilt Shop's exclusive line of patterns. Cozy is located in San Diego California. The shop and the ladies that work there are awesome. If there is one thing that I miss about San Diego its that shop, the friends that I have made there and being able to go to strip club saterdays for my free pattern. If I could take them with me everywhere I would.

I have several strip bundles from Cozy and countless patterns. I'm curious anyone out there interested in working on a cozy quilt with me? They are super easy and the instructions are step by step... like a mystery quilt but with out the mystery.

I have 2 thoughts.. I can work on one that I have already started (as long as I have unpacked the pieces already and have them all) or I can start a new one in the hopes that some one out in blog land will want to play too and will help cheer me on.

Ok so here are the 3 that I have already started and will need to get all the parts back together..

The above pattern is called "Gift Boxes" and mine is not this colorway. The shop has actually changed things since the first time they did this pattern. The first time it was very pretty fall colors and nice warm flannel. That is what I have half sewn in a ziplock bag some where.

This one is called "Cactus Wreath" I love it!! I started this one prior to going on deployment what 2 years ago now? Maybe even before I transferred here to Lemoore so it has been in the works for a while.. I think all the strips are cut to size and just need to be chain pieced. Not sure if I have the background fabric for this though so it may have to wait a little until I can get some.

This one is called "Cross Walk to Paris" and I am not completely sure what stage it was left in. What I do know is that I started sewing this on a machine that I no longer have so I may have to re-sew a bunch of things to make them fit together nicely.

And Last this one is not started yet but I have the fabric for it. Keith picked it out because it was his favorite oriental fabrics. I believe we changed things up a bit.. the background will be a deep blue purple and the smaller squares will be cream. I think that the thin black border might be red and the outer border black but I'm not positive. I let Keith pick out what he wanted and I know I thought that we were good on the color combo's but I will have to see what the measurements are to know what was supposed to go where.

So who wants to sew with me? We can have an online get together maybe chat through messenger.. watch some movies in the process.. listen to a book on disc? This coming weekend will be the last weekend that I have before Keith gets home. Hes home for a little while and then I can do all the sewing I want on the weeked for another month or so while he is gone again.
