Phew! What a great weekend. Sharon came up on Thursday for a quilting marathon. We were able to quilt 2 of her quilts and get a big shopping trip too. Needless to say, I didn't get all of my weekly goals done but more importantly we had a great time. Here's what did get done:
Put borders on Stop Tossing - nothing
✅Sew rows together - Easy Breezy Blocks - Half the borders are - on see photo below
Make more Shoo Fly blocks for SAHRR - nada, except consultation
Make a few more Spider Web blocks - Three cut out, but no sewing done
✅Clean up front of cutting table and Accuquilt area — done but may need to be done again!
✅Put labels and hanging sleeves on 4 quilts — all done!
Not the most productive week but I'm happy I was able to move some projects forward. And the all-important labels and hanging sleeves were finished. Sharon took the quilts with her. These will be delivered to a quilt guild member in Maryland for the Faithful Circle Quilters Show. (It's coming May 19 to 21. For more info click here.)
Here's what I hope to get done this week. It should be a quiet week so I expect to move these forward or finish them.
Put borders on Stop Tossing
Finish borders on Easy Breezy Blocks
Make more Spider Web blocks
Start putting Improv blocks together (my AP & Q's UFO challenge for April)
Quilt top for Leashes of Valor
Here's one of Sharon's quilts that was quilted this weekend. It was big!
I believe this pattern is called Dottie A Garden for Harper and is available free on Moda Bakeshop. If you have a spare jelly roll with both light and medium/dark strips this might be the pattern for you. Have you been to the Bakeshop recently? Here's the link to the free patterns. You might want to spend some time checking out the patterns there.
Here's how far I got on Easy Breezy. Almost done with the top -- something I hope to finish this week. Once the side borders are added this will go into the To-Be-Quilted closet.
I'm linking up with the following parties:
I hope you can spend some time surfing to see what people are up to this week. I'm planning to take it easy today: read a book and surf quilting blogs.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
