Make-A-List Monday

The Week of February 24, 2014

1.  Prepare a pieced batting for "Square Dance," 
 a quilt I finished piecing in June 2013.

I pieced the batting and finished the quilting.

I absolutely LOVE this quilt top.  I am so happy that I took on this challenge.


3.  Bind and label "Roll Roll Cotton Boll," 
 "Little Dominoes," and "Jelly Roll Race."

Roll Roll Cotton Boll
a mystery quilt designed by Bonnie Hunter.



Little Dominoes and Jelly Roll Race


These two little quilts will be donated to 
Quilts for Kids tomorrow.

4.  Work on the sixth block for
and put it into the Mock-Up. 







I'm a little concerned about this block.  Although it is not visible in person, a few of the blocks look almost scorched in the photo.  I may redo this block with another white fabric.


5.  Continue to work on my New York Beauty quilt.

I've finished a few more blocks but they are still not all done.


6.  Work on three Desk Deli Totes, designed by Penny Sturges for Quilts Illustrated, for future gifts.

I finished all three totes.  No pictures because they are gifts, but trust me...they are really cute!


7.  Work on a few Dear Jane blocks.

No progress.



8.  Begin working on a quilt called 
"Majestic Mountain" by 3 Dudes Quilting.

No progress.


9.  Work on some more blocks for my 
"Just Takes 2" quilt.

No progress



10.  Work on the quilt I am making for Ryder's "Big Boy Bed."

All fabrics have been washed and pressed.  Now to cut into them!

*Four-Patch Stacked Posies...Small Print
Four-Patch Stacked Posies...Large Print
*Civil War Tribute
Two Flag of Valor Quilts
*Teal & White Delight

I was able to work on three BRODY Projects this past week.  Here is a picture of one of the four Civil War Tribute blocks I made.


I am still working on blocks for "Teal and White Delight" and I am adding borders to the small print "Four-Patch Stacked Posies."

12.  Work on the quilt currently loaded on Annie:
  "Square Dance."

 Square Dance has been quilted.  I think it is going to be a gift quilt so I can't share any pictures at this time. 

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

No progress.



14.  Work on the shawl I am crocheting for 
the Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. David the King Church.

No progress.


15.  Spend two days with my Ryder, including an AWESOME ADVENTURE

We took Ryder to the 
in Cherry Hill, NJ.

This children's museum is similar to The Please Touch Museum we took Ryder to in January.  It was a little more compact but had just as many fun things for Ryder's age group (21 months)

Ryder loved the bubble station.  It took a lot of coaxing to get him to explore other areas.

He enjoyed "fishing" from the deck of the boat with his Granddad.

Playing in the car was a hit!


Playing hockey was sooooo much fun!

Operation!!!  Notice the doctor coat and stethoscope around his neck.  He was really getting into the role.

"I wonder if my new baby brother will weigh this much?"

"This castle is really cool."

"Now did he say he wanted mayo on his sandwich, or not?"


Making pizza is a blast!
