Make-A-List Monday

The Week of April 8, 2013
(in review)

1.  Continue to work on the 100 blocks needed for the quilt
 "All Hand Dyes Go Together."  

All 100 blocks are now complete.  This project will now become a BRODY Project.

2.  Piece a batting for the next quilt to be loaded on Annie.

I find that I have sooooo many little pieces of batting left over after a project.  It is super simple to piece these batting scraps together to make a larger, more useful piece.

3.  Bind the quilt I just finished quilting on Annie - Pennington Quilt Works Saturday Sampler Home Colorway.

This is a very large quilt.  I think it is 95" X 95".  It will now be added to my pile of quilts that need their binding hand stitched.

4.  Add an inner and outer border to a BRODY Project called "Monticello" that can be found in this book:

Here is my quilt top ready to be added to the "Git-R-Done" list.

5.  Prepare for a mystery quilt to benefit cancer patients sponsored by Heather Spence.

I received the first clue and I have my fabric all ready.

I hope to get to work on the first clue sometime during the week.

6.  Prepare a project called "Going Buggy"  a quilt designed by 
Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company

I did not have time to prepare this project.

7.  Work on Part 5 of Roll Roll Cotton Boll.

No time for Roll Roll Cotton Boll this past week.

8.  Add 21 Hexies to my Bonnie Hunter inspired Christmas Hexie Quilt.

637 Hexies

9.  Spend two days with little Ryder.

Going for a walk...

10.  Start the 2013 NJ Shop Hop.

My friend Linda and I were able to visit 3 of the 8 shops this week.

The first shop we went to was Mouse Creek Quilts in Howell, NJ

Next we went to Forked River to visit Quilting Possibilities.

And finally we went to Fabric Inspirations in Manalapan, NJ.

I picked up my patterns and fabric packs at each of the shops.

11.  Celebrate my two son's birthdays.  Kyle turns 30 on Thursday and JT turns 28 on Saturday.  We are going to AMC Dine-In Theatres in Menlo Park, NJ.  They want to see the movie 42.  

Another very busy week.  So much to do but it is all good.  I certainly can't complain.  

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