Monday Milestones–3/28


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.

Giddy With Change – A new quilt

Monday Milestones–3/21



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

Giddy With Change


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.
