Make-A-List Monday

The Week of September 16, 2013
(in review)


1.  Work on Lesson 12 and 13 for the Aiming for Accuracy Quilt-Along sponsored by The Quilting Gallery.


Lessons 12 and 13 combined some new blocks with some previously made blocks.  This is now known as Section A


2.   Work on the following BRODY Projects:

*Lazy Sunday
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
*Christmas Charm Tree Skirt
Four Across Hearts Table Runner
Four-Patch Stacked Posies...Small Print
Four-Patch Stacked Posies...Large Print
Slice Twice - Isn't That Nice

I was able to finish two BRODY Projects this week.

Lazy Sunday




Lazy Sunday is a Bonnie Hunter mystery offered by Quiltmaker Magazine.

It is very colorful and very scrappy...much like many of Bonnie's patterns.



Christmas Charm Tree Skirt



This tree skirt is ready to be quilted.  After it is quilted I will cut a circle from the center and a slit from the edge to the circle.  Then it will be bound with a bias binding.

3.  Spend a day with my main guy...Ryder.

Just a few pictures of our day together:

On my new swing.





Recycling Rocks!




 I LOVE broccoli!


Play dough is fun!























4.  Work on the quilt currently loaded on Annie - June 2011 Stash Club 1930's Braid.



This Stash Club top has been quilted and trimmed.  Now it needs to be bound.

5.   Begin working on the center medallion for the Pieceful Nights Quilt Along sponsored by Jo Kramer of Jo's Country Junction.



I was able to complete this step.
The center medallion of this quilt measures 24 1/2" X 24 1/2" unfinished.

6.  Continue to work on two watermelon quilts made from fabric I gathered on a trip to Phoenix and San Diego two summers ago.



Here are two of the eight rows I've completed for this quilt top.  I have decided to just work on this watermelon quilt for now.  I will but the other pattern on hold for a while and work on it another time.

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

Only a few hexies added this week.

8.  Organize all the pictures from my lost blog page -
 My Christmas Hexie Journey
 and start to reproduce the page.

No progress this week.

9.   Bind the PQW 2011 Saturday Sampler, Stella Colorway that I just finished quilting.

The binding has been added by machine and still needs to be hand tacked.






10.  Work on the next block for the PQW Saturday Sampler Quilt.

No progress this week.

11.  Attend the Byrne $5 Quilt workshop.

I attended the workshop and picked up my next block.

in Oaks, Pennsylvania.

The Quilt Extravaganza was wonderful.

  1. You accomplish so much and you have a kid. I'm retired and can sew about two to three blocks a week if I work hard. I'm missing the boat somewhere....:)
