My goals for last week:
#1: Finish Judy L's Quilt of Valor sew Along ( http://www.patchworktimes.com/) DONE DONE DONE DONE - are you sure you heard me???? I was a little short on the Blue outer border... after searching my extensive blue stash ( there was NONE) and I even headed to the fabric store to see if they might have more .... and there was no more. So I improvised - and I bet you can't tell. ( at least I hope you can't)
Oh - and to brag - I even made the backing and took a picture for Ms Sandy. She likes backs. I used the rest of my scraps up. But I also had 4 yards of the Royal Blue - thanks to Ms Vicki A of Machine Quilting Unlimited ( I raided her stash when she wasn't looking)
#2: Help my kids get their quilts cut out.
Ugh - almost! We are working on them. And we got quite a bit cut, but not all of it. I think I will wrestle them down to the sewing room on Sunday and tie them to the cutting table until we are finished? Or until Dad calls us for lunch!
This is a sneak of one childs quilt pattern ( he designed it in EQ6) and his fabrics.
And here is a sneak peak of another childs quilt (some fabrics are missing - we had them over on the cutting table already)
And this is the last childs - he doesn't want you to see his whole design until it is done.
#3: Put the Carolina Christmas blocks into the top ( I only have rows sewn... bummer) Nope nada zilch - didn't even touch it. Thats okay though right - cuz now I have a goal for the next week - a reason to keep quilting, to still work with the fabric - to keep my space in the house ......
So - I guess you know the goal for next week - FINISH THE CAROLINA CHRISTMAS QUILT before Christmas comes again!!!!
If you want to see what everyone else is up to head over to Bari's
