Monday Meanderings 10 -25 - 2021

It's time to see what a great week I had last week.  I made progress on every goal I made last week. 


Embroider 3 more shirts — all done and mailed and forgot to take pictures. 

Bind pink pig quilt — finished and given to Va Star quilt guild. 

Try to quilt unicorn zebra panel, bind, & give to guild by Wednesday — finished quilting but not by Wednesday.

Make FCQ Equilters blocks — 11 done and more to come.

Continue sewing turquoise blocks together — 3 more done.

Road trip to pick up sewing machine — she’s back and purring along.

First up -- Ruthie was a champ sewing away with no issues.  I'm hoping she'll be doing well so I can get some more tops quilted. 

I've got 5 blocks done of 40 on my turquoise .  Hum, I'm thinking these might need to be sashed.  I'll make up my mind after I get all the blocks done. 

Below are the blocks that Pam asked for from the FCQ Equilters.  So far here are all that I've made. It turns out I don't have many of the style of florals Pam wanted us to use.  I've pulled a bunch more florals so I'll be making more of this very easy 8.5" block. The yellow inset piece may be a bit too strong compared to the cream or white.  I'll probably make some more so she'll have enough to throw a bunch in together. Pam did mention she might put a thin white sashing between the blocks. (By the way, you might notice a friendship star block shining through the white.  I didn't want to take those blocks down to put up these flower blocks.  So, yes that is the star block underneath the solid white I put up!)

Hum, probably could have left a bigger space, but you get the idea. I'm happy to be able to cut into a lot of floral fat quarters. 

Here's this week's goals. 


Bind zebra quilt

Continue sewing turquoise blocks together

Quilt another top 

Cut out new quilt

Make the October Table Runner in green

Cut sashing for 16 patch stars

Nothing too hard.  I'd like to get a few more smaller tops quilted but it depends on whether I have any backing.  

Here it is the last week in October and I've just now figured my fabric stats for Sept. I pretty much broke even -- I used a half yard more than I brought in.

Believe me October is not going to be a pretty sight! (Unless you like lots of new fabric!)

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. great weekend was equally productive...

  2. Happy to hear Ruthie has been behaving herself! I know it’s frustrating when she’s finicky. Great job on your goals. I think Pam will welcome the yellow and pink fabrics. They will add variety and visual interest to the quilt.

  3. I'm glad Ruthie is humming along! I really like those floral blocks, and the yellow looks great. Good for friendship star peeking through! :D I'm reading your goals and marveling that you say "nothing too hard" - lol!
    I see that you are linking with To Do Tuesday - thank you!

  4. Happy Tuesday, Bonnie. Your projects are looking great . I am particularly drawn to you turquoise blocks. Looks like you have another busy week planned. Happy quilting.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
