Make-A-List Monday

The Week of June 24, 2013
(in review)

1.  Finish the nine "Dancing Stars" blocks that I did not finish last week.

I finished the ten blocks that I wanted to finish.  Now I have 20 done all together.  Only 78 more to go!

2.  Work on the May and June blocks for my
 Paper Pieced Heart Sampler.

3.  Work on the following BRODY Projects:

Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Roll Roll Cotton Boll
Lazy Sunday
String of Pearls
Square Dance

I was able to finish Roll Roll Cotton Boll

and Square Dance.

I did a little work on Lazy Sunday:

Roll Roll Cotton Boll is ready to be quilted but I still have to get backing fabric for Square Dance.

4.  Make a trip to The Village Quilter in Mt. Holly, NJ to pick up my strip club pattern and purchase backing fabric for Building Blocks BOM.

Here are the black and white strips:

June Strip Club Jelly Roll

And here is the quilt:

June Strip Club Quilt

I decided to order the backing fabric from www.quiltshops.com because I found it on sale.

5.  Continue to work on hand tacking some bindings.

I have made some progress on a crumb quilt but I still haven't finished any. 

6.  Celebrate our 32nd Wedding Anniversary with my DH.  

We spent our anniversary with our DGS Ryder.  We took him to the
 Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ.

He loved the shark tunnel.

Gill the shark was pretty cool.

He tried to touch a baby sand shark.

He met a friend.

The sea turtles were great swimmers.

Any day spent with Granddad and Grammy is a good day.

The end of a very long but fun day.

7.  Work on some blocks for the  Skill Builder Block of the Month sponsored by Alyssa Lichner of  Pile O' Fabric.

I did not get to this project this week.

8.  Try to find a pattern for a 5 yard bundle of coordinating fabric that I have.  

I decided to do a pattern called "Keep It Simple."

9.  Work on Lesson #1 for Aiming for Accuracy Quilt Along.

I did not get to this.  

10.  Embroider Ryder's name on a beach towel he received for his birthday.

I hope he likes it.

2.  Attend Quilts for Kids at Pennington Quilt Works.

3.  Bind the 2012 NJ Shop Hop Quilt that I just finished quilting on Annie.

4.  Quilt the Bonnie Hunter Mystery called Easy Street on Annie.  I have finally finished quilting all the quilts pieced in 2012.  Now I will start quilting 2013 quilts tops.

10.  Take our puppy, Brody, for his neutering surgery.  Brody is now 14 months old, the age that our breeder, Cindy Williams of Honey Pot Hounds, recommended for this surgery.  

Poor little guy; he has no idea what is going to happen to him.

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