Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

October Recap/November Goals

  • Continue quilting the Double Wedding Ring — can I get 3 rows done by Halloween? –Yes & No
  • Make the September & October KVQG BOM – No
  • Prep backing for quilt* – Yes!
  • Bind quilt*- Yes!
  • Make progress on Cream & Green quilt – Yes!

A  mixed month, but lots of progress regardless.  No, I didn’t get three rows quilted on the DWR, but I did hit the halfway mark (total of 4 rows quilted) and I’ve got two more rings quilted on row five.  So I’m plowing ahead full speed as long as my wrist holds out.

Another month and I’ve blown off the Guild BOM.  Maybe I’ll get caught up in December. (Yes, I’m already planning on blowing off the November block.)

Prep the backing and bind a quilt — Yes!  That’s the row quilt I took down to Rocking Chair Quilts and finished on the 18th.

Make “progress” on the Cream & Green quilt.  – I ripped out all of the quilting I had done previously (6 blocks) and I have 5 blocks quilted uniformly.  There are twenty blocks so I’m 1/4 of the way through.  Still  need to figure how to quilt the sashing and then exactly how I’m going to put it together.  I have a rough idea, but I need to think it through.

So all of the specified goals have been accounted for.   Additionally, I completed the Star Struck quilt top, have sewn 1/2 of the Blue Ridge Beauty Blocks into rows, started working on a mini quilt and started a quilt which needs to be done by late Spring.

All in all, I’m happy with what I accomplished this month.


  • Continue quilting the Double Wedding Ring – how much can I get done by the end of the month?
  • Make progress on Cream & Green quilt
  • Complete center of Blue Ridge Beauty
  • Finish quilting center of Compass Lone Star

Just a few things on the list this month – three of the four are on my list to do by the end of the year so I want to focus.  I think the reason I’ve not been able to pick a leader/ender project is that I really want to finish these quilts.   So, check in with me throughout the month to see how much progress I made on these quilts and if I end up starting something new.
