Make-A-List Monday

The Week of July 15, 2013
(in review)

1. Complete the 6th block for the Byrne Sewing Connection BOM and attend the demonstration class.

I was actually able to complete the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th blocks.  Now I am all caught up.

I am ready for the next block in August.

2. Complete the 2013 NJ Shop Hop Quilt and prepare it for quilting.

Here is the pieced quilt top.

The backing has been prepared and it has been added to my Git-R-Done list.

3. Work on the following BRODY Project:

String of Pearls
Keep It Simple
Lazy Sunday
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Log Cabin Christmas Tree Quilt
Syncopated Rhythm

I did a little work on the Blue Dresden Plate quilt and a lot of work on Syncopated Rhythm.  

Here are some of the Syncopated Rhythm blocks:

4. Work on hand piecing the two blocks for Skill Builder Block of the Month
sponsored by Alyssa Lichner of Pile O' Fabric.

Here is part of one block:

I am making progress on these blocks but it is still taking a lot of time.

5. Spend a day with little Ryder.

This is Ryder snuggling with his pirate quilt.

6. Celebrate DD, Shea's, 25th birthday in Hoboken.

We had a wonderful time in Hoboken.  We ate at a restaurant called 

Madison Bar and Grill.  

It was very good and I highly recommend it.

7. Bind the Craftsy 2012 BOM that I just finished quilting on Annie.

I did get the binding done and it has been added to my pile of quilts to be hand-tacked.  

8. Work on two blocks for the Pieceful Nights Quilt Along sponsored by Jo Kramer of Jo's Country Junction.

I did not get to work on these blocks.  They will have to wait until I get back from Quilt Odyssey.

9. Cut up some fabric scraps for my Scrap User's System.

I was able to get all my scraps cut up and placed in the correct bin. 

10. Do some menu planning.

I planned two months worth of menus.  Now to do the grocery shopping...

The Week of July 22, 2013

1.  Attend Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA. 

I'm so excited to be going back to Quilt Odyssey for the 5th year.
 (or is it the 6th?)  I'll have lots of pictures next week.

2.  Finish quilting the May 2011 Stash Club - Bear Claw quilt.

3.  Bind two stash club quilts:  Snowball and Bear Claw.

4.  Spend two days with little Ryder.  :D

5.  Work on a Strip Club quilt called "Jelly Beans."

6.  Work on the following BRODY Project:

String of Pearls
Keep It Simple
Lazy Sunday
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Log Cabin Christmas Tree Quilt
Syncopated Rhythm

Not much on my list this week because I will be with Ryder for two days and Quilt Odyssey for three days.  That does not leave much time to sew.
Luckily I will get lots of time to sew in the classes I will take in Hershey.

Until Next Time...Happy Stitching!!!
