Hmmm, I wish I knew what to tell you as far as what I have been up to this week. Oh – I remember….we went fishing all day on Saturday and then Easter and family stuff was Sunday! A dentist appointment to get my stitches out took all morning yesterday…that has pretty much taken care of it!
Here are my goals for last week, and what I have accomplished……
Last week’s goals
- Finish two customer quilts – one will be finished this afternoon, feathers finished on the other
- Keith and Angie’s wedding quilt – set blocks together – NADA
- March First Saturday block – finish (by Friday AM!) – finished!
- Civil War Tribute blocks – finish all of Month 2 blocks – half way done with all three
I mailed my 2008 Round Robin QOV to Alycia on Monday for her Honor Flight QOV program. I am also relieved to be getting quite a bit done on the Civil War Tribute blocks. That quilt will NOT become a UFO!
I spent a LOT of time on the tutorial here on the design process I used for the feathers on Nadine’s quilt…that wasn’t a goal, but it sure was fun!
I used a similar process to put a birthdate on the baby quilt I am finishing up today. I designed the birthdate in a font that I liked on the computer. I had to use a HUGE font size to fit in the space (24″ by 8″). Then I cut the letters apart so that I could play with the placement of the letters. I ended up using this arc as the quilt is a Noah’s Ark quilt and then quilted rainbows above and below the date. I copied it on to the Golden Threads paper….then quilted right over it! So fast and easy.
I won’t get a lot done this week as I have classes both Thursday and Friday at the Round Bobbin in Springfield. One is an applique class and the other is a feather class. I will post pictures and let you know how they go!
This week’s goals
- Finish both customer quilts!
- Finish Civil War Tribute blocks from Month 2
- Lay out Keith and Angie’s wedding quilt to set together
I think that will be enough to keep me busy!
