1. Cut Batting for a lot of tops. I cut batting for 7 tops. I love having a bolt of batting at my disposal!
2. Work on Black and Yellow top All the blocks are done and set into the top, just have to put borders on.
I also got some other sewing done, I got 14 faux log cabin blocks done for my Hearth & Home quilt. I tried to work on Paris in the fall – I just wasn’t feeling it. I also sewed the applique down on a super-secret block. I cut fabric for some of the guild’s block of the months, but I decided I liked the fabric too much to do a lottery with them and will just make my own top with the greens I have.
1. Put borders on black & yellow
2. Sandwich a top or two
3. Work on basket blocks for Hearth & Home
I am trying to get in the sewing room at least an hour a day.
Since most of what I have been working on, I can’t talk about yet (super-secret projects) – my blog has been quiet. There are a few things that I have done that I can show, but without someone to hold the quilts that is taller than 4’5” , it is hard to post pictures of those tops that I finished recently. I am hoping to get some photos tomorrow night at guild.
Today I finally broke into the bolt of batting I bought in February. I cut batting for several quilts that have been waiting.
From the top down:
Giddy With Change – A new quilt
Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend – Nancy’s March UFO Challenge Quilt
Red, White, and Bold – Nancy’s February UFO Challenge Quilt
Batik Pop – Nancy’s April UFO Challenge Quilt
Awesome – A new quilt
Autumn Star Struck – Judy’s March UFO Challenge Quilt
Bento Box – Nancy’s January UFO Challenge Quilt.
1. Sugar Pop N Change (a new project) – The top is now done.
2. Cut batting for all my tops that I have backings ready for. The kids were home all week – Don’t know what I was thinking when I said I would do this one. It didn’t get done.
However, I did manage to get more things done this week than I listed:
- Autumn Star Struck is now in flimsy form. This was my Judy L’s #1 UFO challenge.
- I made a jelly roll quilt with my buttercup Jelly roll I bought. I used the Awesome pattern from Moda Bake shop.
- I cut out the remaining blocks for the Hearth & Home block of the month.
- I cut out months 2-4 of Paris in the Fall; month two I had to order more background fabric though. I started to sew on month 3.
- I made 17 Louisiana blocks for the black and yellow quilt. and cut out the borders for this.
I really didn’t think I would be able to get to much since it was spring break, but since the kids were playing with friends most of the days and I didn’t have to deal with hours of homework when I normally like to quilt during that time of the day, I surprised myself.
1. Cut Batting for a lot of tops.
2. Work on Black and Yellow top
I started a new project this week – Giddy With Change.
I got all the blocks done and probably would have finished the top, but I ran out of the Moda Solid – I made the pattern a bit bigger than the pattern called for. I also am waiting on fabric that I decided I will do for the outer border.
I am loving the fabric – Giddy by Sandy Gervais. The dark brown, red, pink and teal all play together very nicely.
1. Paris in the Fall Blocks. Months 3 & 4. – no; I didn’t get it done.
I did, however, get my #1 UFO for Judy L’s challenge done (the top).
I also got a top done on Sunday with a jelly roll that arrived on Saturday.
