40 Day Challenge – The Halfway Point

Yes, Tuesday marked the 1/2 way point in my self-imposed 40 day challenge.

Here’s a recap.

  1. Bind the table runner, Narragansett Blues, and a customer quilt. Bonus pillowcase.
  2. Catch up on Star Studded BOM (still need to do the June block), bind Sister Swap # 3 and Then & Now.
  3. Bonus pillow case for On Ringo Lake, quilt Log Cabin quilt,  Good Fortune bonus pillowcase
  4. Not pictured – Hem 8 pair of pants with cuffs for my niece’s wedding next month.

 

I still need to bind the log cabin quilt. Sewing the binding strips together was today’s progress, and I hope to have the quilt finished before the end of the week.  This weekend my sister is coming over to use both the long arm and my sewing machine to attach binding to quilts, so I’ll be using my Genie to resume piecing Frolic. Then next week, I’ll see about binding Allietare.

Looking at what is left on my list, I’m pretty sure I can meet all of my goals, with the possible exception of the Frolic top.  But if I miss it, it shouldn’t be by much. Then it will be on to the next challenge — which I’m already thinking about.

40 Day Challenge – Day 13

Day 13 – I finished up the 2nd set of 6-inch blocks, then decided I wanted to make some pillowcases so when I wash the quilts I can wash the cases. I’ll put the clean quilt in their respective case then in the closet since my quilt cabinet is full.

First is On Ringo Lake. There are a few extra seams in this case as I only had a 20-ish by 108″ piece of backing, a FQ of the brown and maybe a 36″ x 14″ piece of the cuff material. But I made it work.

Good Fortune is the quilt I bought the butterfly backing for but when I saw this fabric I knew it had to be the backing.  Apparently I bought enough of it for two pillowcases, but failed to get enough of the pink. I was out of town when I bought the fabric, I ordered additional pink fabric and either the name on my original receipt was wrong, I ordered the wrong pink or I was sent the wrong pink. I didn’t discover that until tonight, so there is just one pillowcase. It only has 1 extra seam as apparently I started using the accent fabric as a neutral in my Frolic.

The orange blue in the lower right corner is Sherbert. She decided she had to be right where I was taking pictures.

Here’s the current status:
