Saturday’s Stitching

My quilt guild has stared a BOM. The quilt will be the right size for our Cancer Center Project.  It will be a mix of different size blocks.  The first one was released on Friday and is the largest one we’ll do. It’s 24″ square.

A few more Easy Breezy blocks were made and I made a bonus pinwheel from the BOM.

The Late Edition of Finished (or Not) Friday

This is the Late Edition of Finished or Not Friday.  My plan was to finish the wedding top for today’s post, even if it meant posting at midnight. Had I not discovered the circled mistakes, I would have powered through.  The larger circle is after I ‘fixed’ it. I spotted the turned block in the smaller circle when I was double-checking to see if anything else was wrong.  Needless to say, I decided to call it quits for tonight.

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

Bingo Blocks

Friday night my guild is playing Fabric Bingo, so I needed to make a couple of Bingo blocks.  I started this project when the instructions first came out, but didn’t get very far. It’s a good thing I didn’t make the blocks then because I needed t re-read the instructions. Hopefully I’ll have good cards.

If I don’t get in gear, I’m not going to have the wedding quilt top finished by/on Friday.  Show-Me-Quilting is having a virtual Skinny Bolt Sale at 7 PM Thursday night so that might be distracting for a while.  But if it’s done by 11:59 PM that counts, right?

A New Door Wreath

It’s February, so time for a new door wreath.  This has been hanging in my sewing room for a few weeks.

Two thirds of the seafoam HST are made and trimmed.  I’ll knock the rest out after work and start assembling the broken dish units.  I really would like to have the top done by the time my backing fabric arrives.

I bought a Big Dream Dahlia and a Big Dream Dance panel in the Hummingbird color way to see if they would work color wise with the wedding quilt .  The answer is a resounding Yes.  I’ve ordered another 8 of the Big Dream Dance panels and will make a big 9-patch to use for the backing.  I expect the panels to arrive on Friday, but it will be at least a week before I start to quilt this quilt, as I’ll do the practice quilt first — just as soon as I figure out how I’m going to quilt it.

Design Wall Monday – 2/1/21

It’s Monday and the 1st of the month, so there’s lots to link up.

If you’ve been following my posts in January, you may be thinking to yourself “Haven’t I seen this before?”.  But I promise, this is a new picture for Design Wall Monday.

I spent the weekend working on my Guild’s website and only got in a bit of quilting.  This is all of the pieces for the rest of the wedding quilt.  The lavender broken dishes are made, and have the seafoam HST ready to stitch.

Ideally, yesterday’s post should have been my accomplishment post to One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts. I really had hoped I’d have this top finished. It’s still in many pieces. But this is where I am now:

The pieces above

Half the quilt from earlier in the month.

And 1/4 of the top from early last week.  Perhaps by this Friday.

So, what is my One Monthly Goal for February?  I could say finish the wedding top, since I’m confident it will get finished, but instead I’m going with Quilt the Red, White & Blue Wonky Dishes.

I want to work out my quilting ideas on this quilt before I quilt the wedding quilt.

Which brings me to my 2021 Personal Quilting Challenge #1. These are my objectives which I hope to have done by February 23rd.

Fortunately I have another 23 days. I best get a move on it.

This brings me to the 350 Blocks report over at Prairie Moon Quilts.

I think that’s everything.  Let’s see what February has to offer.

Another Section is Complete

The 3rd section of the quilt is sewn together. And from the scraps I make another Easy Breezy block.  It was tempting to work on the MQA BOM as the last 2 blocks were released, but I remembered my One Monthly Goal and the only way I’m going to finish the rest of the top this month is if I don’t get distracted.  There will be plenty of time to accomplish my challenges from my personal challenge.

Design Wall Monday – 1/24/21

The blocks are finished for the 3rd quarter of the wedding quilt. Now to get them stitched together.  I also finished 2 Easy Breezy blocks as my leader/ender.  Can you see them?

Five Blocks

After a day of computer and paperwork gathering stuff for my taxes, I assembled 4 more blocks for the wedding quilt and finished a matching leader/ender block.

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.

Wedding Quilt Progress

It seems the only thing I’m posting lately is progress on the wedding quilt.  Maybe that means I’m getting better at staying focused.  I have my units stacked and ready to stitch together by my sewing machine. I even stitched a few together.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can get this section finished before my sister arrives to use the long arm.
