What an exciting week I had at MQS! I bought some goodies for my machine and took a bunch of classes and learned a lot. I also (finally!) got to meet Shelly from Prairie Moon Quilts! Shelly was actually able to take some time from the ranch and all her busy duties to come visit for a little bit. We had a great time and I hope to do it again!
Last week’s goals –
- Play at MQS! – DONE!
- Finish piecing pink, black and white D9P – DONE
- Quilt pink, black and white D9P – DONE
- Bind pink, black and white D9P – has to be done by the 21st! – DONE
- Quilt Reva’s top – ready to go on the machine
- Piece some more 4-patch posey blocks as I have time – DONE
I had a blast at MQS. I really meant to do a post on it by now, but just haven’t had the computer time. That is going to have to be one of my goals for next week, but for now I will give you a peek at one of my favorite purchases….
This is one of Cindy Roth’s (of Longarm University fame) all metal ruler bases for the Gammill. I LOVE it! It is so easy to put on and take off. I have wanted one for a couple of years and finally asked her about it at MQS. This happens to be the only one she brought to MQS with her and she was using it as a demo in her classes. She was finished with it, so gave me a deal so she didn’t have to take it home with her.
I have the pink, black and white D9P almost totally finished. All is done except making the label and sewing it on, so that won’t take long. I don’t have a picture yet and will wait until the label is done for that.
My other goal was to keep working on the 4-patch posey blocks.
I did get one other thing done this week. Two other ladies and I are doing a little donation quilt for our local guild’s “Monthly Mini” where everyone can buy chances to win the little quilt. I got to do the quilting and here it is finished.
Both the front and the back are very busy, so I didn’t get too creative on the quilting. Peggy and Joan pieced this baby….I am sure glad it wasn’t me doing the piecing!
I think that is it for last week.
This week’s goals –
- Label and photograph pink, black and white quilt
- Blog about MQS
- Quilt Reva’s top
- Quilt Jeannine’s top
I think I will stop here. I have so much gardening stuff to catch up on and the kids are almost out of school. This will be more than enough to keep me busy this week!
