Wow, has it been a week! We're back to scorching temperatures here in Tennessee again, so there's plenty of time for sewing, thankfully! I am so. ready. for. fall - how about you? Well, until it gets here, let's see how last week's list went...
1. Quilt the baby quilt.
Done, and delivered!
2. Quilt a vintage top for a customer.
Also done and delivered!
3. Make progress on each of the annual quilts.
Definitely progress made! Five drama llamas are complete...
...the moody blues quilt is making great strides...
...penguins are on parade...
...and I found a great back for this quilt today!
4. Make progress on the Birch Bark quilt.
Progress made! I have finished assembling one half of the quilt top - this piece is 60" x 100"! I'll be working on the next half soon.
5. Make progress on the three My Small World quilts.
(Yes, I've lost my mind!)
Done! I've made more blocks than these, but I'll share those on Wednesday...
|Blues for Lilli...|
|Rainbow and fussy cut for Emmy...|
|And, of course, greens for Nathanael!|
6. Start working on the t-shirt commission quilt if the customer returns the deconstructed t-shirts.
And this is why I got so much done this week - she still hasn't brought the deconstructed shirts back to me!
7. Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
Done! Not so many this week...
This quilt went to a woman just diagnosed with stage 3 cancer...
...and this one went to a gentleman injured in an ATV accident.
I also, in a complete state of lunacy, decided to jump into the Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest Quilt Along, hosted by Amy of Diary of a Quilter! Here's the fabric I've pulled for my version...
So as you can see, it was a busy and productive week! I kind of like the "make progress" directive I put on my board last week - it seems to be less oppressive and a lot more fun!
And here's what I have on my plate for this week...
1. Make progress on the annual quilts - just Emmy's and Lilli's this week, though.
2. Make progress on the My Small World quilts.
3. Make progress on the Birch Bark quilt.
4. Make progress on the Pine Hollow Patchwork Forest Quilt Along! (In the future, to be referred to as the Patchwork Forest Q/A to save my poor fingers!)
5. Make some flannel receiving blankets for a local NICU.
6. Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
So another busy week on tap, but at least I won't be tempted to spend too much time outside - at least until it cools off this weekend. And I'm having so much fun "making progress"!
And now, the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
