Monday Meanderings 10 - 11 - 2021

Monday really snuck up on me this week.  I have been able to stitch nearly every day this week.  Sometimes my motivation was low but I still made steady progress.  Here's the deal. 


Quilt purple and pink baby/charity quilt -- it's waiting to be trimmed and bound.

Finish last 3 economy blocks and start sewing together -- all sewn together. 

Finish flying geese for 16 patch sawtooth stars -- all geese are done, some blocks sewn.

Read and lounge around -- finished 2 audio books and 2 books on Kindle. 

Here's the plan for this week.


Sew 16 patch sawtooth stars together

Embroider Halloween shirts for grands

Make RSC blocks for October

Continue making blocks from turquoise jelly roll 

Border the economy blocks

Here's the economy blocks with a suggested border.  In person it works really well with most of the blocks.  The noticeable exception is the top right hand pale pink.  But that is the only block of that color. 

Next up is some of the big Sawtooth Stars blocks.   The blocks will finish at 16" which means I don't have to make too many of them.  These blocks are leftover from a quilt I made from the 16 patches that were sent by the FCQ Equilters. I tried to find a pic of the finished quilt but all I found was one in progress.  First the 16 patches.

And here are a few of the 16 patch sawtooth star blocks. 

I'm making steady progress on the projects I had precut and taken to the retreat.  I should have all of them to top stage by the end of the month.  Which means the last week of the month I need to cut a couple of more projects as I'm going to the beach house and down to Sharon's in early November.  More sewing opportunities. 

I'm linking up to these great linky parties! 

Oh Scrap!
