Finished (or Not) Friday – 2/26/2021

After a big finish — or push to a big deadline,  I frequently end up taking a break. This week has been no exception.  I’ve wandered into the sewing room briefly, only to wander back out.  I finished the quilting on the Alphabet BOM Monday, and still need to press the binding so I can bind the quilt.  Perhaps Saturday.

Finished (or not) Friday – 2/19/21

As the deadline for my 1st Personal Challenge of 2021 looms, progress is being made.  This is the 3rd of the 4 blocks in this set of blocks for my sister in law.  I was on track to have the last block made, but apparently wasn’t paying attention when I was cutting the fabric and got my turquoise and pink swapped.  Since it will make a difference to the design, I need to cut more fabric.

Binding on the wonky dishes quilt is proceeding. During the evening the cats took turns briefly sitting on lap. It wasn’t until the 3rd cat got on me that things slowed down.  Although she wasn’t on the quilt, she was sitting in such a way that it was making it difficult to see what I was doing.  I suppose it’s fair my goal was 40″ and I was at about 48″.

Tonight I plan on pulling out the Alphabet BOM and making my final plan.  Tomorrow is the Guild’s Zoom Sew Day and I hope to make progress on the top.

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.

Finished (or Not) Friday – 1/29/21

Here is it another Finish (or Not) Friday and I’m still showing HST for the wedding quilt.  These are the last of the lavender ones. This evening I’ll see about getting them assembled into broken dish units and starting the seafoam ones.

This is the section I finished earlier this week. With any luck, I’ll have the top finished by next Friday!

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.

Finished (or Not) Friday – 1/15

It’s Finished (or Not) Friday and I’m not.  Or maybe I am.  I’ve finished 1/2 of the wedding quilt.  Even 1/2 of it is too large to get a decent picture of it.

It’s wider than my shelves.  I turned down the upright from my now defunct hanging system and added a yardstick to get enough length. In retrospect, I should have turned down both ends, not that it would have been any easier getting a photo of this much of the quilt top.

Yesterday’s block tally is 3 blocks for this quilt and 2 Easy Breezy blocks.

I need to cut more HST for the wedding quilt and kit up some more Easy Breezy blocks before I sit at the sewing machine again.  I think I’ll do that during the Guild Zoom Sew Day.  So, tonight I’ll do some more binding.

More HSTs

Half Square Triangles in seafoam and lavender are the only thing on my plate for the next couple of weeks. I might squeeze in a block here or there if the BOM instructions come out. These are the pieces for the next 32 Broken Dish units.  Once they are made I’ll assemble the next quarter of the wedding quilt.

Another Easy Breezy block was finished.

In other news this sheet pan and cooling rack arrived today.  I’m playing with acrylic paint pouring and previously only had this silicone mat on the counter to help keep the counter clean.  My hope is I’ll be able to contain the paint drips in the pan and off the counter, as well as be able to easily move drying canvases.  Since it’s a full sheet pan it doesn’t fit in my oven so I don’t have to feel back about getting paint on it.  I am wishing I bought two cooling racks though -one for painting and one for cooking.

P.S.  I forgot this post was to be part of Finished (or Not) Friday, so here is where the wedding quilt stands.  1/4 finished plus all those HST above.
