Did you realize with the beginning of April we are 25% through with 2023? Yep, time flies when we're quilting away!
Although Pat and I had an all-day rehearsal on Saturday, I still got a lot done this week. Here's the list:
✅Make more green and pink RSC blocks — need more green, pink is done
✅Finish Arkansas Traveler Block — completed sewing it together
✅Finish quilting baby quilt; ✅bind it — all done!
✅Finish cutting out another quilt — cut all but the border/s, not bad
Design Tee Shirt quilt — I’m just not motivated yet … one of these days!
Here's the finished Arkansas Traveler Block. It is a surprisingly easy block to make when using the Accuquilt die. Someday I need to plan a quilt using this die/pattern.
Here's the baby quilt I finished this month. (Sadly, it is the only quilt I finished this month.) It's about 36" square and will go to the local hospital's NICU. They like bright quilts and small ones. (works for me!)
All the quilting was done with my domestic machine. Ruthie, the long arm, is still out for repairs. You can see an up close picture of the spiral flower here.
And, finally, a picture of a little of the back and most of the front. I didn't have enough of the green print fabric so I added a small piece of a green print that I had in my stash. So, yes, this entire quilt came from my stash!
Now it's time to focus on this week's goal list. Here's what I should be working on.
Make plan for APQ UFO Challenge #4 - a group of big flying geese blocks.
Clean up cutting table - work on it 15 min a day
Sew borders on Traffic Jam
Begin sewing grape quilt together
Make more RSC blocks in green and start purple
We've got several events to attend this week. Saturday night we'll be joining the Spotsylvanians to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the Fredericksburg Nationals' baseball game. We sang last summer and enjoyed the game. Hopefully the weather will be decent.
Sunday we'll be joining our family for an Easter dinner. Hum, I wonder what I should bring to this. I generally bring a veggie tray so the kids can snack on them before dinner is served. I'll probably do it again.
Between these two events, I won't have as much quilting time as usual. But I should be able to get some of my goals checked off by the end of the week.
I've redone my Mysteries and Quilt Alongs page. See the link right above the date and headline for today's post? I removed and then reposted the January post. Then I redid the main page and listed all 3 postings I've done so far. Yesterday I did the April listing. If you are looking for a quilt along check out the listing. (I could only find quilt alongs for April.) If you are doing a quilt along or a mystery please let me know a month before it starts so I can include it on my monthly page.
That's about it for me except to let you know the Linky parties I am joining. (Go check them out please!)
To Do Tuesday
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
