Well that month flew by! And, I admit I've gotten a lot done or so it seems. First up - my goal list for the past week.
✅Quilt & Bind Sailboat top (January UFO) (click here to see it.)
3rd 2nd round of SAHRR
✅Finish coffee top (click here to see it without the borders I put on this week.)
✅Make more ombré blocks
✅Cut out baby quilt
Work on SAHRR.
Make more ombré blocks, spider web blocks and begin the new RSC color
Sew baby quilt together
Sew Blazing Star table runner together, quilt and bind
Sew backing together for group patriotic quilt
I actually lucked out on the next UFO for the challenge I'm participating in. The Feathered Star I'm working on for the SAHRR was number 7 that was pulled for February. I didn't list actually finishing the whole wall hanging but I think I'll try to get it quilted and bound too.
I've been adding more red spider web blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I have 4 and a half done. I really like the red on white ones I've been making. Hum, should I just make a whole quilt of red and white blocks? Maybe. Maybe not. I did go through my red scrap basket to get all the red scraps I have that would fit on the die. Sad news, I have mostly strips so I was only able to pull maybe 6 different fabrics. On the other hand, I could always use some of my fat quarters to make more. Time will tell what I choose to do. Maybe I'll do both...
Thursday we dodged a major snowstorm. I'm sure you've seen the reports from the states further north that got totally inundated. We got about 2" or so but nothing stuck on the streets or our driveway. Because of the way the house is set, the back walkway and the basement steps are now ice. (It rained first and then snowed.) Most of the backyard doesn't get sun during the winter. Temps will be "warm" this week (in the high 50s) so the snow and ice should melt. It was beautiful when we came back from working out Friday. Just to give a little reality to that 50 degree temp, it was 10 degrees this morning!
Please take some time to visit these linky parties.
I'm calling it quits for today. I spent most of the day sewing with breaks for lunch and dinner. I'm worn out but very pleased with my progress.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
