Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Finished (or Not) Friday – 1/22/21

No new pictures, as Thursday evening was a long night at work. So here’s a recap of what I’ve accomplished in the last 7 days.

Runabout Bag by Lazy Girl Designs. I was able to cross this off my 2021 Personal Quilting Challenge # 1.

Not thread and needle, but I made a Mardi Gra mesh wreath.

I’m well on the way to finishing the 3rd quarter of the wedding quilt.

I just have one short end of binding to stitch down on Moda U.

I’m linking up with Alycia Quilts for Finished (or Not) Friday.

Getting Stuff Done

This morning my Guild had a Zoom Sew Day.  Nearly 20 of us joined the Zoom call from our individual sewing spaces.  We talked, laughed and worked on our projects. I feared the sewing machines would be too loud, so I started by first cutting the fabric for this Runaround Bag by LazyGirlDesigns.  Once it was done I started cutting the HST for the next section of the wedding quilt. I made the bag after I got off the call.  As simple as the bag was to make, I didn’t feel I could concentrate on the instructions and participate in the call at the same time.  This is an item on my 2021 Personal Quilting Challenge #1.

By then we all realized the sewing machines were not too loud so I stitched, pressed and trimmed all of the seafoam HSTs I need for the next section.  Had I not been on the call, I doubt these would be finished.

My evening project was this wreath.  I think it needs more embellishments before I can call it done.

2021 Personal Quilting Challenge #1

This past year I found that if I had a hard date I could challenge myself and make significant progress on my projects. The Guild program for February is Member Show and Tell.  Although the Guild is meeting via ZOOM, we really haven’t had Show and Tell.  I would like to have something to show that I haven’t posted in our FB Group Chat.  The title of this post is Challenge #1, so it’s possible I’ll do more personal challenges this year.

Challenge Dates:  January 1st – February 23rd. (Six weeks)

Challenges:

  • Alphabet BOM – Complete the top, I have a plan.
  • MQA BOM – Assuming the rest of the tops is released I’d like to get at a minimum the rest of the blocks made.
  • Red, White & Blue Wonky Broken Dishes – Quilt and Bind.  This is what I want to show at the meeting.
  • Moda U – finish the binding.
  • Ruby’s BOM – I’d like to get at least the next 4 blocks made and instructions written.
  • Runaround Bag – Everyone needs a new start on occasion. This is mine.
  • Wedding Quilt – Finish the top.

Stretch Challenges:

  • Wedding Quilt – Quilt, bind, label, and make pillowcases.
  • Ruby’s BOM – Finish the top and complete the instructions (12 blocks total)
  • MQA BOM – Finish the top

Double Stretch Challenges:

  • Ruby’s BOM – Quilt, Bind, and Label
  • MQA BOM – Quilt, Bind, and Label
  • Alphabet BOM – Quilt, Bind, and Label

I’ll continue to do daily-ish posts, leaving the challenge post to once a week, or whenever I cross something off the list.
