Make-A-List Monday

The Week of February 4, 2013
(in review)

1. Work on the first block for Pieceful Nights by Lori Smith sponsored by Jo's Country Junction.

Here is my first block of this quilt along.

This block is called China Doll.

2. Attend Quilts for Kids workshop at PQW.

I am still working on the two pinwheel quilts I started last month.  I just have to add borders and then quilt them.  I'm sorry I don't have any pictures yet.

3. Spend a day with my DGS Ryder.

So Sweet!

4. Piece the backing for my PQW 2012 Saturday Sampler - Stonehenge colorway.

Here is my quilt top folded in half.

I used all my bonus HST to add to the back.  I can now add this quilt to my Git-R-Done list.

5. Continue working on the PQW 2012 Saturday Sampler - Stella colorway.

I was able to finish piecing this quilt top.  Now I have to piece the backing.  Pictures to follow soon.

6. Continue working on the 2011 Byrne $5 quilts - repro and batik colorways

I have made great progress on these two quilts as well.  I should have pictures next week.

7. Work on the June 2011 PQW Stash Club quilt.

This is another quilt that is very close to being added to the Git-R-Done list.  

8. Work on a QAYG braided table runner.

Here is a picture of a small portion of this table runner.  For the most part this is a very easy project.  You can get the pattern HERE. I ran into a little trouble adding the binding.  I had used basting spray to baste the batting to the backing.  Unfortunately it did not adhere well.  I was able to persevere though until I added the binding.  That is when I noticed two puckers.  I was able to take out the puckered areas and fix them but I think next time I will use a different means of basting the batting to the backing. 

The Week of February 11, 2012

1.  Work on the February block for my paper-pieced heart sampler.

The Village Quilter.

11.  Work on the January blocks from the Skill Builder BOM hosted by Alyssa Lichner of Pile O' Fabric.

I know this looks like a VERY ambitious list and it might be, but many of the projects are very close to being done.  Wish me luck!

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