As you can see, my string blocks are still hanging around up there. Below that is one of my hexagon blocks. I have decided I prefer this diamond setting for them instead of the traditional Grandmothers’ Flower Garden, especially with the non-traditional colors.
This is an applique UFO – a single block from an applique class I took at a local quilt shop probably back in 2000. The center is not yet totally stitched down – if I remember correctly it is called ruching. I pulled it out and have been thinking of borders and quilting to make it into a wall hanging. Trying to get inspired to finish up some of those UFO’s!
As far as what I have accomplished this weekend from my Wrap-Up for the Weekend post, I wanted to bind and label a quilt I finished up for my mom and also finish the prep work on the applique for my challenge quilt. I did finish up the binding and label, the quilt is washed and ready to go to my mother after I take pictures. I will tell a little more about this quilt when I post the pictures.
I also finished up the prep on my applique for my challenge quilt. This week I want to finish the prep on the background pieces and start the actual applique since I will be doing it by hand.
My accountability challenge is really going to be a challenge this week. Basketball has started for Big Brother, and we have three basketball games this week – Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (two are out-of-town and about an hour away!). In addition, I have a dentist appointment today and Munchie and Mini-me have their five-year old doctor’s appointment Tuesday (and they get about five vaccinations each!). There is more, but that is about all I can plan for at one time….LOL.
