Make-A-List Monday - Quilting Again!!

Hi, all!

Monday again - they just keep rolling along, don't they?  I'm so glad to be able to quilt again - so the lists will change back to normal again.  Woohoo!!

Here's how I did on last week's list...

1.  Make a backing for a quilt for the ministry.
Done!  My friend Deborah came over and quilted this one...

2.  Put borders on a ministry quilt and make a backing.
Done, and actually quilted - but no pics yet...

3.  Finish Lilli's quilt top.
Done!  Isn't it pretty?

4.  Work on Emmy's stocking.
Done!  Here's last week's progress shot...

...and here's where it is today!

5.  Work on the ministry pattern book.
Didn't do any of this this week - I had too much fun with #6!

6.  Dump out my scraps and make some dump blocks!
Oh, these things are so addictive!

This is only the first seven - I now have sixteen made and I'm in the process of sashing them for a ministry quilt.  And I've already got another one of these in mind for another ministry quilt!

So that's how last week went.  Here's what's on the list for this week!

1.  Quilt five ministry quilts currently needed.

2.  Finish piecing the brown dump-n-sew quilt top.

3.  Piece a low-volume dump-n-sew top.

4.  Locate a child's top in the to-be-quilted tops and quilt it for a ministry need.

5.  Quilt the two dump-n-sew tops from above.

6.  Quilt one extra quilt for next fall's long-term ministry project.

Collecting quilts for New Orleans was such a success, we're going to start making and collecting quilts for our middle school students' mission trip to Rogersville, TN next fall.  They work in this very poor community, doing construction and working with children.  The quilts we give them will certainly be well-used!

So that's what I've been working on, and plan to work on next.  

Now the question is - - - what are you working on this week?




  1. I am still working on my mom's quilt, I was sick last week and did not work on it very much and I really want to finish it by Sat.

  2. So glad to hear that you are making a come back. Bless your heart.
    Beautiful quilts! Blocks, too.
    I'm piecing blocks for a rainbow challenge, a row along, starting a mini quilt along tomorrow, and working on UFO's.

  3. I am doing a lot of bindings - commission pieces and some ready for an up-coming quilt show. Then I can play again - my little wash-basin is full of scraps ready for another dump quilt .

  4. Love your dump blocks! The colors are so rich and warm - it's going to be a beautiful quilt.

  5. Isn't it nice to be able to find a little time to sew. Your projects looks nice. Really like the dump blocks.
