Make-A-List Monday

Make-A-List Monday

It is hard to believe that March is more than half-way through.  It has been a very busy week, so let's see how I did with last week's list:

The Week of March 12, 2012

1.  Finish piecing two baby boy gift quilts.  I finished piecing the tops of these two quilts...one with a dinosaur theme and one with an airplane theme.  One problem...my son told me that one of the babies is a girl.  I'm positive he said two baby boys.  EEERRRRRRR!    Oh well, no problem.  I'm sure you can guess who will get the other baby boy quilt.  Is it possible for a grandson to have too many quilts?

2.  Complete four labels for quilts I have recently finished.  I finished all labels and have attached them to the quilts.  

3.  Work on my Stella and Stonehenge blocks for PQW Saturday Sampler.

I love the way they turned out.

4.  Make two blocks for the Quilt Square Quilt Along.

These little 12 1/2" squares are made from a pattern by Lori Smith.  Aren't they CUTE?

I was able to attend these shows on Wednesday 3/14. I took lots of pictures and posted them in my Wordless Wednesday post on that date.  Here is a picture of the Best of Show.

The applique and quilting was amazing.  Congratulations!  All the quilts were just gorgeous.

6.  Attend Strip Club at The Village Quilter in Mt. Holly, NJ.  

This is always a fun class and the quilts they make from 2 1/2" strips are always so pretty.

 I can't wait to get started on this quilt.  Unfortunately I have so much going on, it might be a while.

Now...for this week's list:
 The Week of March 19, 2012....

1. Make four scarves from left-over batik fabric. I recently made some jackets that produced a lot of left-over fabric. I hope to find a way to turn this fabric into scarves.

2. Finish piecing two Quilts for Kids and quilt them.

3. Begin work on four baby girl gift quilts. There seems to be sooooo many people we know having babies.

4. If time...I want to start working on Just Takes 2 blocks 19-22.

 Although there are only four things on this list I have a feeling I will be very busy this week.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
