Make-A-List Monday

The Week of February 18, 2013
(in review)

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

This is the second paper pieced heart block I have made for this quilt.  It measures 6 1/2 inches square.  

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

I was able to finish this project.  Actually, I was able to make two table runners from the
 1 1/2 yds of border fabric that I had on hand.  Sorry, no pictures...it's a gift (Shhhhh!)

3.  Spend a day with little Ryder.

4.  Finish the Strip Club quilt from The Village Quilter that I started last week.

This quilt used both a jelly roll and a border stripe fabric for the sashing.

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

There were two blocks each month.  I am using the same black background fabric and a variety of bright batiks for the rest.

6.  Add 21 Hexies to my Bonnie Hunter inspired

Currently I have 511 Hexies.

7.  Spend a few hours organizing my fabric scraps using the Scrap User's System!

Following Bonnie's Scrap Users System I have drawers for 4 strip sizes and 4 square sizes and 2 brick sizes.  I was able to make a little progress on this project but I have 3 LARGE boxes to cut-up so this should take me awhile. 

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

I added two table runners and the Strip Club quilt to my list this week.  I almost finished a quilt, but not quite.

  In my attempt to update my Git-R-Done page I managed to erase all the additions I made this year.  UGH!!!  I don't quite understand how you can simply push the back space button on a computer and lose a ~500 word blog page.  I will get this glitch fixed; please be patient with me.  HaHa!

9.  Attend the Byrne $5 Quilt class at Byrne Sewing Connection and Strip Club at The Village Quilter.  

This is the quilt we will make with this month's jelly roll at The Village Quilter.  It is small but prettyI will post a picture of the block from the Byrne $5 quilt when it is complete.

10.  Work on a few New York Beauty blocks.

I was able to finish 6 blocks this week for a total of 24 blocks finished.  I have 18 more to go for this quilt.  All blocks are paper pieced and involve curved piecing.  I have been working on this project for a few years.  I put it away and didn't work on it for about a year.  I think it is time to "Git-R-Done." 

The Week of February 25, 2013

1.  Work on my Git-R-Done list.  Fix the glitch that occurred while trying to update it and add or subtract any finishes.

2.  Continue to work on my boxes of scraps by adding to my Scrap User's System!

3.  Spend a day with little Ryder.

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

5.  Attend Quiltfest in Somerset, NJ. 

6.  Complete the January and February blocks of The Sugar Block Club sponsored by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock.

7.  Complete the January and February blocks for the Lucky Stars Block of the Month sponsored by Elizabeth Dackson of don't call me betsy.

8.  Work on a little baby boy quilt for a special Mother-to-Be.

9.  Work on a Sunburst Pillow designed by Laura Sage.

10.  Work on a long time UFO called Roll Roll Cotton Boll by Bonnie Hunter of  Quiltville.   This was a mystery that Bonnie offered in 2010.  It is now available in her newest book:  String Fling. 

Well that is it for this week.  As usual, I have probably over-planned but I like to always know what I will be working on next. 

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