Make-A-List Monday #53!

Hi, all!

Well, I'm pleased to say that I managed to get everything done on my list last week!!  I just buckled down and worked hard - here's how it went....

1.  Bind the three quilts that were quilted last week.
Done!  Here's the first...

...the second...

...and the third!

I had pledged to do one of these bindings for my One Thing,One Week Challenge and I'm happy to say I got all three done!!

2.  Cut out the blue ministry quilt.
Done! I've made six of the sixteen blocks for this quilt, too!

3.  Finish the back for my Christmas quilt.
Done!  And I'll have more to show 
on Friday about this quilt...

I also quilted this beautiful flimsy donated by Megan Griffin of Crooked Seams.  

She wanted to cross it off her UFO list, so she sent it to me.  Well, now she can legitimately cross it off - it's been quilted and delivered to its new owner - a woman with cancer who's going through a really hard time right now.  As soon as I opened the package, I knew that this would be her quilt - and her daughter said that it was perfect for her!  
Thanks again, Megan!!

So!  I'm happy!  And what's on tap for this week?  Well, I've got kind of a full week, but here's what I'd like to get done on the quilting front....

1.  Finish the blocks for the blue ministry quilt.

2.  Make a back for my Jacob's Ladder quilt.

3.  Make a "Great Jelly Roll Race" quilt.

4.  Work on the twister quilt.

I think I'm going to stop there -that may be more than I can get done, but it's worth a shot!

So what are you working on this week?

  1. Wow! So prolific, and such pretty quilts. I especially like the one with the big blocks of color. So bright and cheerful.

  2. Congrats on all of the beautiful finishes!!! It's so wonderful to have all the items on your list check off. Looks like you have your work cut out for you this week :)

  3. Wonderful finishes. I really like the rail blocks - so simple but really quite pretty. Have fun with the JR race quilt.

  4. Some great accomplishments! You've got me hiding under the table...I did so leeeetle last week. I spent most of the weekend aq quilt stores and online at Accuquilt...and, when I say "spent"...ummm, thaz literal...unfortunately

  7. Your week's plan is chock-full of more fun than mine ~ I'll be packing in between work.

  8. I truly am so excited that you're putting all my abandoned (yet noble) intentions to good use! Stay tuned. I'm planning to go through all my fabric and projects yet again this summer. I have my eye on that jelly roll race quilt too - it looks like it would be a quick and easy project. Good luck with your to do list this week!!
