Make-A-List Monday - Back to the Real World!

Hi, all!

After an absolutely gorgeous weekend, it's Monday again, with a whole new week full of days to fill with lots of fun sewing!  Let's see how last week's list went first, though...

1.  Quilt two quilt tops for Heartbuilders.
Done!  These two are so pretty - pieced by Deborah S. and headed out this week!

2.   Work on piecing my new project, a wedge quilt from Christina Cameli's new book.
In progress - I've pieced all the wedges, and also the denim background (made from old jeans).  At least I can see what it will look like!

3.  Continue cutting up scraps and plan a new scrap project using some of what I've cut!
As usual, this is an "in progress" all the time - but at least my stash of cut pieces is growing!  I've also got an idea rolling around in my head for a quilt but I need to get it on paper....

4.  Package up two more sets of scraps for giveaway and get one in the mail.
Done!  It's been fun giving away some of my scraps as part of the pre-Hands2Help quilt-along!  And it has made a little bit of a dent in all those tubs...

5.  Time to work on some more administrative stuff for Hands2Help - which starts in just a little less than two weeks!
Done!  More sponsors are rolling every day!

6.  Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
It was a pretty easy week - only two quilts.  This one went to a woman who may possible have a tumor in her stomach...

...and this quilt went to a gentleman in the hospital with blood and kidney issues.

I'm happy with my progress for last week, plus I got to do a little bit of fun sewing.  I'm loving that wedge quilt, although it may have to be put aside this week for a while as I work on some time-sensitive projects.  Let's see what's on tap for this week...

1.  Press under all the edges of the arches for my Half and Half quilt, and start appliquéing them to the background.

2.  Meet with a new customer about a t-shirt quilt. 
(Graduation t-shirt season starts early around here, y'all!)

3.  Start work on a quilt for a special occasion.

4.  Mail off two Heartbuilder quilts.

5.  Order fabric for several upcoming projects.

6.  Pick a pattern for this month's scrap quilt.

7.  Prep for this Saturday's Piece*Love*Quilt sewing day!

8.  Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.

Definitely enough to keep me busy and out of trouble - plus Lilli and I will have a movie day on Thursday (no school) as we go to see The Greatest Showman one more time before it leaves town!  We may even sing out loud in the theater....  

So now the question is - - - what are YOU working this week?




  1. I get tired just reading your to do list! Good luck on all of it. :0)

  2. Love those hearts, and another ministry quilt, made with love as always.

  3. My week will see knitting baby hats, sewing border blocks, Easter appliqué, and roman shade making! All before I sail off on a cruise on Sunday.

  4. Impressive array of quilts! A friend sent me a link to your blog because of the denim quilt I am working on! Nice to see a new-to-me quilt blog!
