I have been busy!
Last week’s goals –
- Finish purple lone star – DONE!
- Finish borders on Keith and Angie’s quilt – DONE!
- Piece back for Keith and Angie’s quilt – DONE!
- Finish piecing baby quilt (not the first time I have taken an unquilted top to a shower!) – DONE!
- Work on Mini-me’s dinosaurs! – umm, not done (bad mommy!)
First of all, here is the finished lone star quilt. It had some issues with fullness in the middle and very tight borders, so I had to be careful while quilting it.
Here is Keith and Angie’s quilt top – completely finished with the borders. It measures 114″ by 114″.I was even able to finish up piecing the back which was quite a challenge. When I started the quilt I bought an old twin sheet with the Dukes of Hazzard on it as Keith is a HUGE Dukes fan (he has been to the Dukesfest I don’t know how many times!). I used large pieces of blues from my stash to finish it up. I couldn’t get a full-sized picture of it as my room isn’t large enough!
FYI, total yardage used from stash for the top was 15.6 yards. The backing was 14.25 yards (including a muslin liner for the sheet which is thin and worn) and the binding was .75 yards for a grand total of 30.6 yards of stash used for one quilt!
I also pieced the back out of white muslin and the leftover scraps from the fat quarters used in the top. The back is finished and all the binding is cut and ready to put together.
In addition to getting that finished, I also quilted up two crib covers for a gal at church. These are for her daughter who just got two foster babies.
The last thing I did this week was finish my First Saturday block.
It didn’t need to be finished until February, but this way I won’t have to worry about it!
This week’s goals –
- Finish another customer quilt
- Quilt Keith and Angie’s quilt
- Work on Mini-me’s dinosaur quilt
- Prepare some samples for a string piecing workshop next week
- Quilt Lilli Grace’s quilt
Since Keith and Angie’s quilt is my UFO Challenge quilt for the month, I would really like to get the quilting done in January…..that would give me February to get the binding finished. I would consider my UFO Challenge for this month as very successful if I get it to the quilted stage!
We will see on the others….it is going to be a very busy week!
