Make-A-List Monday

Make-A-List Monday

Okay, Okay, I know it is Tuesday but I have a good excuse for not posting my list yesterday.  I was visiting with my darling grandson, Ryder.  Sometimes you just have to set some priorities!  HaHa!

The Week of June 18, 2012
(in review)

1.  Work on the four quilts I am doing this month for Quilts For Kids.   I finished the two repair quilts and they are ready to be turned in.  I completed the one top I was working on and now the two quilts that I will be quilting are ready to be quilted.  I have to finish quilting my Orca Bay quilt before I can get them on the frame.  They will hopefully be done this week.

2.  Finish preparing the sage and cream fabric for a Leader/Ender project.  

When I began this project I was intrigued by the variety of "sage" fabric and was curious how they would all work together.  I haven't completed enough of the project to assure myself that they will blend pleasingly.  Only time will tell as I continue to work on the project.

3.  Begin work on Ryder's "Good Wishes" quilt.  I almost have the top together on this quilt.

I am now working on the inner coping border.  The outer border will be a piano key border using the blue scraps left over from the blocks.

4.  Work on PQW Saturday Sampler blocks for June.  I didn't get to this but will add it to my list for this week.

5.  Start doing the prep work for the Bonnie K. Hunter classes I will take at Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA in July.  I didn't get to this either.  I don't need this done until the end of July so I have a little time.

The Week of June 25, 2012 

1.  Work on PQW Saturday Sampler blocks for June.

2.  Complete the quilting and binding on the Quilts for Kids quilts I am doing for this month.

3.  Continue working on Ryder's "Good Wishes" quilt.  

4.  Start the prep work on another "Good Wishes" quilt for a friend.

5.  Continue working on three Leader/Ender projects.  Currently I am working on the Home colorway of the 2011 PQW Saturday Sampler.  I have 37 Sawtooth Stars to go and then I will be able to put it together.  I am also working on the Sage & Cream quilt and the 2012 NJ Shop Hop quilt as Leader/Ender projects.  

6.  Celebrate my 31st Wedding Anniversary with my wonderful husband, Don.

This is a picture taken at our 30th Anniversary celebration last year.  We have been together for 39 years and he is my best friend!  

It looks like a very busy week.

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