  1. Complete Love Letters – Month 3 – I finished one, but ran out of fabric and had to order more.
  2. 5 Arrowhead blocks – DONE.  Though only 4 got photographed. Oh well.
  3. Love Letters Month 4 – Nope – I have a mental roadblock when it comes to this quilt, I guess.
  4. Designer Mystery Month 9 – DONE!!
  5. 2 blocks for the Super Secret Project #3 – I got one finished and started the other one.  My machine really didn’t like the fabric that was given to me and was eating the fabric.  I don’t have a single stitch plate for my 6600 yet –  so I will probably take it with me on Saturday to the Sassy Bee and work on it since that one has a single stitch plate.
  6. Design Super Secret Project #4 aka my guild’s annual challenge quilt – I won’t be able to post anything – even teasers – about this until May because the members will vote on this and I know some of them read my blog.  DONE!!  I even pulled fabrics and ordered threads to start working on it next week.  It has to be appliqued so I  also traced the pattern on to the back of the base block so I can back-baste applique it.

Not on the list that got done:

4 Tsunami “quilt tops”.  I really am having fun with them.  I also pulled fabrics for 4 more “tops”.  Sunday, I worked on another quilt top and got all the units made for it.  Now just to trim the units and put it together.

Blessing Block #1 from Temecula Quilt Co.  This was such a cute block and quick, that I couldn’t pass up another mystery from them.

I sure don’t know where this last week went off to but I want it back!!  It flew by.  Before I knew it, it was Friday and I hadn’t gotten anything done on my list!

  1. Quilt the five tsunami quilt tops that are done.  Get them ready for binding.
  2. Again – try to get months 3 & 4 on Love Letters done.
  3. Quick clean of sewing room.  It is getting a bit messy.
  4. Work on Terrain Maze at the Sassy S & B Quilters bee
  5. Work on Month 1 of Merry Merry Snowmen.  I ordered threads and I should be ready to start this now.

I do have to do some guild stuff this week.  The kids are out of school on Friday for a little over a week since Spring Break is next week.

  1. Month 3 Love Letters – nope not completely done.  I did get the 12’’ portion of both blocks done.  Just have to put the “setting triangles on both blocks”.
  2. Make 2 blocks for Super Secret Project #3 – not done either

    Why I didn’t get much of the above done:

  3. Sandwich Sunshine Pineapples – DONE!  Also quilted and bound!!
  4. Sandwich Super-Secret Project #1 – DONE!  Also quilted and bound!!

I will have photos of Sunshine Pineapples after tonight’s guild meeting and a “teaser” of Super Secret Project #1.  Since it is a gift, I will have to wait until the recipient gets it in the mail.

I have a lot of “Super Secret Projects” going on lately.  Some are for gifts and some are for challenges.  I have a few posts already written waiting on the appropriate time that they can be posted so I don’t forget about them.

  1. Month 3 Love Letters
  2. Sandwich Sunshine Pineapples
  3. Sandwich Super-Secret Project #1
  4. Make 2 blocks for Super Secret Project #3

That may be all I am able to get done this week.  I had planned to sew all day today, but since my office chair broke (boohoo!) I have to spend today shopping for a new one.  I hope I can find a new one relatively fast and cheap.

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Complete Month 3  2 Love Letters  – Done!
  2. Month 4  3Love Letters –Nope!  I got almost finished and majorly messed up the flying geese, so I had to track down more fabric.
  3. Month 5 4 Love Letters – the problem with Month 3 made me not want to work on these anymore this week.
  4. Two Tsunami quilts  – Almost done.  I just have to bind (four!! of ) them.
  5. Sandwich Pineapple quilts  – not sandwiched, but I did find the backing and pieced it to get it ready.
  6. Complete Cleaning & organizing sewing area- this was mostly  done!  I still have to find spots for a few things on my desk and organize a few cubbies, but it is workable!

What else did I get done last week?  Well I made a quilt top (Super Secret Project #1) and got the backing ready to sandwich it as well.

I also started on month one of Merry Merry Snowmen.   As of this writing, I have almost gotten the square-in-a-square blocks done.  I will have to say I am a wee bit intimidated by it though.

I also worked some more on my terrain quilt at the Sassy S&B Quilter’s bee on Saturday.

No Listed Goals.  Jury duty was on Tuesday and while I didn’t get picked for a jury (my case was settled before the jury process started. I did have to wait around all day because though I was slated to start in the morning, I guess settling took a bit longer and I had to wait until the afternoon).  I was starting to feel icky that morning, but was hitting a full-blown cold by the afternoon.
