Make-A-List Monday

The Week of February 11, 2012
(in review)


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


I did not get to finish this paper-pieced heart block.  Instead I decided to make a Valentine for Ryder.




I'm happy with the way it turned out.  This is how I signed the bottom.




I made some heart-shaped Valentine brownies for his mom and dad.





2.  Add 21 hexies to my Bonnie Hunter inspired Christmas Hexie Quilt.




This is the next section of my hexie quilt.  I have now completed 490 hexies.  It is getting more difficult to photograph the entire quilt as it grows because it is getting so big.  I will continue to photograph each section as it is completed and only photograph the entire quilt occasionally.


3.  Spend 2 days with my DGS Ryder.


Ryder had his first taste of yogurt this past week.



I tried to post a great video of this but for some reason my computer won't let me.  I'll try again another time.


4.  Finish the PQW 2012 Saturday Sampler - Stella colorway.


I finished this quilt top.  Here are a few pictures.









5.  Finish the Byrne Sewing Connection $5 quilt - Repro colorway.


This quilt was challenging for me.  I needed to set it on point and add fussy-cut sashing and mitered borders.







6.  Finish the Byrne Sewing Connection $5 quilt - Batik colorway.


This quilt was not quite as challenging, but beautiful just the same.







7.  Finish the June 2011 PQW Stash Club quilt.


This quilt is a braid with wide sashing.  




 I made it with 1930's repro fabric.




8.  Continue to work on my Git-R-Done list.


I have been very prolific in completing some quilt tops that have been hanging around for a while.    I've completed ten quilt tops so far this year but I have only quilted three.  I am going backwards on my Git-R-Done list.  Oh well, it still feels good to get some of these tops finished.


9.  Make a border striped table runner for a gift.


I have prewashed the fabric but I did not get to work on the table runner.

10.  Work on a Strip Club quilt using a Civil War Repro jelly roll from 

The Village Quilter.

I have made some progress on this top.  I should finish it this week.

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


I did not get to these blocks yet.

12.  Work on a few New York Beauty blocks.


I did not finish any blocks on my New York Beauty quilt this week.

My hubby and I spent a day in My Happy Place...Lancaster, PA this week.
We went FARTing (fabric appreciation road trip) and antiquing.  I was able to get some fabric I will use on my Back to Square One Mystery Quilt sponsored by  Judy Laquidara of Patchwork Times.  I also found some juvenile fabric I need for a future project.  

Here are some pictures of a few antique quilts I saw.
