Make-A-List Monday - Phil, Where Are You?


Hi, all!

Welcome to a brand new week!  Here's hoping my sew-jo has come back (I'm not sure yet, but keeping my fingers crossed!) and it will be more productive than the last one.  So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Quilt at least three quilt ministry quilts, then bind and wash.
I didn't quilt any, but I did bind and wash seven quilts for the quilt ministry...

With the addition of these quilts, we have a sufficient amount of quilts on hand for immediate needs that we can slow down a bit on quilting.  Hooray!

2.  Complete at least one memory quilt top.
Done!  I am really liking this design, and look forward to finishing the other two.

3.  Cut out at least one annual quilt.
Done!  I finished cutting out Emmy's quilt (man, that unicorn has a lot of little pieces!)

4.  Begin planning repairs on a vintage top.
I didn't get to this one...

5.  Quilt a top for a patient friend.
...or to this one.  Come back, sew-jo!!

So I did manage to get some things done, but still left a lot of work on the table.  Which should make this week's list a little easier to compose!  Here's what I'm working on this week...

1.  Have a friend over for a long arm "teaching day".

2.  Cut out another annual quilt.

3.  Start working on the second memory quilt.

4.  Begin planning repairs on a vintage top.

5.  Quilt a top for a patient friend.

I'm going to leave it at that, and hope it doesn't scare my sew-jo back into hiding.  Maybe I should call it Phil (as in Punxatawney Phil) since it seems to hide every time it sees its shadow!

So now, I really want to know - - - what are YOU working on this week?




  1. Love the newest memory quilt--could be my Dad's plaid shirts-he has 50 at least! lol

  2. I haven't gotten "get it quilted" mode going yet - maybe when it cools down.
