Make-A-List Monday

Make-A-List Monday

The Week of December 31, 2012
(in review)

1.  Work on clue #7 and #8 for Easy Street mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter.

Block A --- I have 10 of 16 completed.

Corner and side triangles complete.

To see what other mystery quilters are doing check out
 Quiltville Quips & Snips.

Later this week I should be able to get to the rest of block A and block B.

2.  Organize my 2013 Blocks of the Month.  

I am doing the following BOM in 2013:

                  1.  Dancing Stars by Amy's Creative Side (Amy Ellis)

                  2.  Skill Buildeer BOM by Pile o' Fabric (Alyssa Lichner)

                  3.  Sugar Block Club by Stitchery Dickory Dock (Amy Gibson)

                  4.  Lucky Stars by Don't Call Me Betsy (Elizabeth Dackson)

                  5.  Pieceful Nights by Jo's Country Junction (Jo & Kelli Kramer)

                  6.  Back to Square One Medallion Mystery by Patchwork Times
                                                                                (Judy Laquidara)

All of these BOM look great!

3.  Prepare a list of "Quilts Ready to be Quilted."  

My list is done and appears as a page on the side of my blog called
"Git-R-Done".  I will list all quilts ready to be quilted as well as those completed and the one on which I am currently working.  I already have one done for 2013.
4.  Add 39 Hexies to my Bonnie Hunter inspired Christmas Hexagon quilt.

314 Hexies!

5.  Finish the Craftsy Block of the Month quilt top.

I still did not get this done.  All blocks are completed but I am a little undecided about the borders.

6.  Watch the USC Trojans play in the Sun Bowl.

Unfortunately Marquis Lee and Robert Woods were unable to get the job done.  Even so, I really enjoyed watching the boys in scarlet and gold play this year.  


7.  Do a little decorating for the winter season.

This is a small sample of my snowman collection.

8.  Work on a paper-pieced heart sampler.


9.  Work on a few Dear Jane Blocks.


10.  Spend a day with Ryder.

2.  Make some more progress on my "Git-R-Done" list.
