Make-A-List Monday

The Week of August 5, 2013
(in review)


1.  Work on the next two blocks for the Pieceful Nights Quilt-A-Long sponsored by Jo's Country Junction.  




2.  Prepare backing and binding for Jelly Beans.

Backing and binding prepared and quilt added to the Git-R-Done list.

3.  Prepare backing and binding for Keep It Simple.

Backing and binding prepared and quilt added to the Git-R-Done list.

4.  Prepare the Bonnie Hunter quilt Smith Mountain Morning as a Leader/Ender project.  


I know this looks like a mess but it is actually very organized.  When I started this project in 2012 in a class at Quilt Odyssey I did not get very far. 
 My computerized sewing machine decided to die.  I was so disappointed that I haven't looked at the project in over a year.  Now it is all organized and it will be my next leader/ender project.

5.  Complete the 3rd block for the Pennington Quilt Works Saturday Sampler BOM and attend class later in the week.



This block is called Lillypads.  I was able to get the fabric I will need for my finishing kit.  I have decided to go rogue...very unusual for me.  I am going to do my own thing and not follow one of the finishing patterns offered by PQW.

6.  Prepare "Christmas Charm Tree Skirt" as a BRODY Project.



My DH and I have been married for 32 years and we have never had a Christmas tree skirt.  I have made some for other people but never for our family.  I am a little ashamed to admit that we just use a red tablecloth under our tree.  Now, if I get this project done in time we will have our first real Christmas tree skirt.

7.  Work on the July and August paper-pieced heart sampler blocks.



I love how these blocks turned out.  The July block looks like a flag and the August block looks like a slice of watermelon.

8.  Work on the following BRODY Projects:

Lazy Sunday
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Log Cabin Christmas Quilt
Tumalo Trail
Six Little Charmer II Table Runners
Christmas Charm Tree Skirt

I'm not sure what happened this week but I did not work on any of my BRODY Projects.

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

I was only able to attach a few of the hexagons on one of the blocks.

10.  Attend the Quilts For Kids workshop at PQW and 
the Zinsmeister Family 21st Reunion.  

I was able to attend both of these events and had a great time.

Here are some pictures from the Q4K workshop.  I am still editing my family reunion pictures so I'm not sure when I will get to post them.

7.  Work on hand piecing two blocks for Skill Builder Block of the Month

8.  Add some more hexies to my Bonnie Hunter inspired 
Christmas Hexie Quilt.  

I haven't worked on this project since the beginning of June.  I took a break to work on hand stitching some bindings.  Now it is time for me to start working on this project again.

9.  Work on a Crazy Eight quilt.

10.  Work on a few blocks for a baby sampler.

My DH, Don, has taken all of my Ryder Time the past few weeks so I've had a lot of time to sew.  That will end next week when his football practice starts again.  He has loved every second he's been able to spend with the little guy.  It's been wonderful watching their relationship grow.  


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