It’s that time again!
This weeks topic is – do you keep a written list of your WIP’s (you know those works in process), how about a list of ‘quilts I’d like to make” and ‘Projects that we have all the parts and just need to start’ . . . the reality is we all do.
I’ve been sorting mine, and actually recently sewed binding to a wall quilt that has been resting, and I MQ a border on a doll quilt, straight lines from the center to the outer edge, spaced 1″ apart, it was easy, just sit down and do it, then sewed the binding to it. Two off the list!
Today I’ve placed two other small/doll quilt tops on the ironing board, will cut batting and backing tomorrow and sandwich them, I’ve finally figured out how I want to HQ these sweeties made with 1/2″ hexagons. Some days it just takes a plan. Once something is ready for HQ, it will move to near my comfy chair and take its turn in my daily handwork, either early morning or while watching TV before bedtime. I must note that I also can HQ and HP in the car, I’m lucky that I can stitch in the car when Russ is driving. Most days some handwork happens, others it doesn’t, either too tired or the movie is too good to not watch, etc.
And lastly I’ve moved a project that has been resting since 2013, accompanied by its fabric, and hope to get borders figured out and added to the appliqué blocks in the center. Life gets in the way of some things, pushed aside, then found again, this one is due to be finished this year, it will be a nice wall quilt.
This week is Block 17 by our friend Lisa Bongean, and it is an easier block this week. Enjoy selecting your fabrics for this sweet one.
