Quilters Accountability Week 3

Meeting the January Goals progress:
I am telling you - I think this checking in thing might be working. I don't want to dissappoint Bari so it makes me get off my duff and do something!!
`
First off - the exercise thing is going pretty well. However my first plan was to exercise 20 mintues every week day - I am thinking I should have said 5 days in a week, as it seems I struggle on certain days - like Tuesday of this week. My littlest son was home sick for the second day and he really needed snuggling - so I missed yesterday. But from Wed to Wed I still got 6 days in. I'll have to keep evaluating before I make my February Goals.
`
Meal planning is going well - so far no one has starved!
`
Piecing Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt - I am STILL on Clue 3.
`
Alright - now the fun stuff... Quilting Quilts of Valor. I want to quilt 15 this month. This last week I quilted #5,6,7, 8 and 9....Loooove it!
`
Here are pictures to prove it ( cuz you live for the pictures right?)
Number 5 was pieced by Barb J of the Livermore Quilters. The pattern is called Valor and can be found on the QOVF website
`
`
`





Number 6 was pieced by Mrs D - one of the 5th grade teachers.
It is a really pretty quilt. And I tried some funky type leaves in the blocks. I liked it.

`






Number 7 was made by Barb J of the Livermore Quilters . She stayed out of trouble - and pieced quilts!!!

`





`




Number 8 was made by Candy in NY. I am embarrased to say that she sent this to me in April 09 to be quilted. But I have decided there is only so much time in the day - and I am doing my best. The good thing is - I have soldiers who NEED it!
`

And Number 9 - Last for this week but defineatly not the least - is a Heartstrings quilt. It was put together by Sue, the backing made by Sheree - and Now it is ready to be bound!

My Binding buddies will be so busy this month.

`
Thanks all of you who made these quilt tops - they are wonderful!!
`
Lots of you want pictures of my new collectors piece - so maybe this weekend I will show you what I collected.

Lovely quilts, Ladies!

It's hard to pick a favorite. Keep up the good work.

Wow! I am so jealous of all that you have quilted this week. Can you come to my house? LOL

You are going to hit that 15 you were going for! Way to go!

How is the little one? Better? Mine have been healthy, but the snuggling is something they need pretty regularly anyway.... :-)

I still admire your menu/excercise and EVERYTHING else you get done.

You're my hero!

Beautiful quilts by the way!

Candy's must be a Judy Martin pattern--it looks familiar.

Lovely quilts and lovely quilting, Alycia!

Do you use pantos or free-motion? I can generally only get to my longarm when we have school holidays, so Monday was a good day! I'll try to blog about it tonight.

Good job on the planning. I am a great believer in planning/ or a 'to-do' list. But realisticly, other things 'happen'. So, do your best, and just keep trying - no one ever can do everything! Thanks for the eye candy/photos.
