I'm making great progress on the T shirt quilt, ordering some Christmas presents, and Zooming with a group of quilters who were "going" to go on a retreat this weekend. Our retreat scheduled in May was rescheduled for the first weekend in December. But it was canceled a month or two ago. So some of us met off and on for Zoom sessions during the weekend. It's always great to go to Zoom meetings with my guild in Maryland -- I don't get up there more than once a year or so even without Covid. We enjoyed sewing and chatting via Zoom. Not as good as in person but better than nothing.
Here's my goals from last week. Yep, I put too many goals on my list. (Or maybe I was distracted!) Here's what I listed and what I got done.
Quilt 1 of my quilts - Nope, didn't happen.
Finish final cutting on t shirt quilt✔️
Here it is: all the shirts have been backed and trimmed to their final size. I received the medium grey Kona for the sashing. You can see my first "coping" strip attached to the shirt in the 3rd column, 3rd shirt down. I decided I'd split the coping strips between both sides of the shirt except if the resulting strip would be less than 1". I did the math wrong on this first one so I took off one strip. I'm going to change the strip to the other side so that the bottom 3 shirts will line up on the right side. I need to do some more math (correctly, I hope!) and then start cutting and sewing these strips on. I have a logo on a hat to put on a piece of a t shirt. It will go in the 1st column because that column is way shorter than the other two. I'll be busy for a while on this quilt.
Begin Grands’ 2020 Ornaments I looked at 1 pattern. Does that count?
Pick backing and quilt farm quilt✔️ And, I got the binding done too, I need to label it and mail it.
Get back to work on purple basket✔️ I sewed a few more strips on the piece but it was minimal.
It was not the best week but I feel good about what I did get done. Now here's what the plan is for this week.
Sew label on farm quilt
Sew coping strips on all t shirts, put the hat logo on a t shirt
Get grand kids ornaments done
Order some more presents
Knit on a doll hat
