Designer Mystery 2009

Today I worked on my Designer Myster 2009 blocks from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I dug out my completed blocks, blocks that were still in the kits that came from the store.  I ascertained what I needed to do.  I had NO clue as to where I left of on this project.

Completed Blocks: 9 – Months One through Nine

Blocks in Kit form: 2 – Months Eleven and Twelve.

Utoh!  Month 10 is missing.  From my recollection this was a very difficult block.  I don’t even know what I did with the kit for it.  I found some started pieces, but no clue as to where the rest was – even the directions.  A quick call to the store and they are going to send me out a new block.

It took me the good part of the day to complete two of these blocks, so here they are:

Block Eleven:


Block Twelve:


I even found my instructions to block ten.  That one will be saved for another day because it is a real bugger! 

Tomorrow, unless a miracle happens, I won’t get to sew at all.  I have guild stuff to do, I have to get my car safety inspected, and I have to go grocery shopping.

Monday Milestones

Last week I started a new thing, Monday Milestones.  I think instead of monthly goals, I need to have a few weekly goals.


The first week went well.  Out of the four goals I set for myself, I accomplished 3.

To recap, my goals for last week were:

1.  Finish quilting my “Pumped Pumpkins” quilt. I not only finished quilting it, I got it mostly bound too.  I have one long side to go.

2.  Work on my Chinese Lanterns Quilt.  I did not get to work on these at all. 

3.  Complete my Heartland Heritage Blocks.  Not only did I get the four blocks done that I needed to finish, I got the top almost put together.

4.  Organize my sewing room. I woke up really early on Friday morning (2:30am) and couldn’t go back to sleep.  I decided instead of watching TV or surfing the internet, I would clean my room.  I got it all nice and cleaned (minus vacuuming because it was still too early and my family was asleep).

This week’s goals:

1.  Complete Hartland Heritage top.

2.  Finish binding Pumped Pumpkins

3. Quilt Friendship Braid

4. Finish the 3 blocks for the Designer Mystery 2009.

5. Make charmed tote.
