Monday Meanderings 12 - 13 - 2021

Lots of sewing has been going on this week.  I've been quilting and piecing a lot.  There was singing happening this week too.  Pat and I were caroling with the Spotsylvanians, a community singing group on Saturday.  It was outdoors with a pavilion. We sang about 2 songs and it started dripping.  And then it rained. 

That's hubby on the left. 

Eventually we moved off the steps to under the roof and skies opened up and poured.  We finally had to sing a cappella and protect the keyboard.  It was great fun to sing again.  Hopefully we'll be singing with the group in the spring. 

It was a great week for getting goals done.  Here's what happened last week.


Update batting pieces Excel list -- started over with a new list

Make more ombre log cabin blocks -- several blocks cut out a few finished

Quilt small quilt of mine ( or maybe charity quilt) -- Two charity quilts were finished

Work on winter wall hanging -- The vertical sashing is done. The horizontal is just a leftover piece to see how it looks. (I like it!) 

These  blocks came from Mary Hertel's paper piecing book Sew Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. 

Keep making string blocks -- only 12 more left to do. 

I also added some of the sashing to the fall animal quilts I showed last week. 

Again, the verticals are stitched on and the horizontals are loose.  By the way everyone was right last week about the brown fabric working well with the rest of the fabric.  A new question.  Should I use the gold fabric for the cornerstones?  Or should I use the orange that's surrounding the animal print?  Let me know your opinions on this one.  

Now on to this week's goals list. I also need to think about quilting a couple of my own quilts this month. But here's this week's list. 


Make more ombre log cabin blocks

Finish sewing winter wall hanging together

Keep making string blocks 

Make a new “To Be Quilted” list 

Finish sewing the autumn quilt together

Send Christmas cards out

On Friday I'm hoping to share pics of the two quilts I quilted last week for my local guild.  They will be donated to a charity this month.  

I'm linking up with my favorite early week parties: 

Have a great week everyone.

Happy Quilting! Bonnie 


  1. I would go with the gold corner stones;) Happy sewing!

  2. your choice of course...either goes well with the blocks

  3. Oh, I know you've missed the choral camaraderie! Yes to the gold cornerstones. And the dark blue enhances the winter bear blocks.

  4. Both fabrics will work for the cornerstones. I really like the brown sashing.

  5. How wonderful you all was able to gather and spread joy and sing even on a rainy day. Your winter wall hanging is so stinking cute and love the sashing on your fall quilt. Gold cornerstones would great. Have a great week.

  6. Gold cornerstones! We went caroling Sunday, but had to wear masks! It was not fun. Fortunately we only sang 2 verses with each song, because I needed more air by then. So singing outside under the roof sounds grand to me!!!

  7. I think I agree on the gold for the cornerstones. Have a good week!

  8. I will go with the gold for the cornerstones.

  9. What fun to sing with your group again! I love your winter wall-hanging - I'll have to look for that book. The penguins are especially cute! I like the gold for your cornerstones, too.

  10. Very cute winter blocks :-) Gold glows just like your DH :-)


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