Can someone tell we where the weeks go?
Early in the week I worked to finish piecing this top. This is the second one I’m making for Christian in a different colors. Caiden’s is here.
Thursday, at the quilt guild I just started attending, fabric was handed out to those willing to make table covers for a local emergency fund/food pantry agency. Red and green for their Christmas event. I choose to take two kits. They are simple enough to make up, just taking a little time. I’ve been puttering at cutting 1 1/2 inch squares for a swap I’m participating in. There are 8 of us so I cutting 8 sets of 100. I’m not sure how I’ll use them yet.
Here is one stack ready to go. Doesn’t look so impressive, but that is 100 pieces.
I have a goal to machine quilt every day for practice but only managed two days this week. My feathers are getting better. And so is my freehand orange peel and loops. I plan to compare pictures of beginning results to the last. I can tell the practice has made a difference.
Goals for the next week:
- Finish up the table covers
- Finish quilting Scrapitude
- Finish the binding on the commissioned t-shirt quilt
- Put Christian’s quilt on the long arm
- Restart Noah’s quilt
They might be a little lofty, but I tend to aim high.
What’s under your needle for this next week?
