Last week's list:
Cut and sew borders for 2 Simple Life Dottie quilts
Done, and I love them! Now, what to back them in? Just kidding! Red and aqua minky of course!
- Cut and sew borders for Quite Contrary quilt
Well, not done. Do you ever do things like make a plan, then a better one pops into your head and you say, "Oh sure! Let's make it more complicated!" Well, that's what I did. I've got the solid strips cut, but I'm going to piece some strawberry blocks for the corners. The ones from this pattern. I figure, why not?
- Cut and sew borders for Glamping trips quilt
Finish Alpine Wonderland blocks and sew flimsy, including border
Done! This quilt is big. As in, half of it is hanging over the back of the fence! So pretty, and not too in your face Christmas-y. Watching for a minky sale and then getting this baby quilted!
And I quilted another quilt on the long arm. But you'll have to wait for it. I'm pretty giddy about this one! Here's a teaser shot:
My next flimsy finish HAS to be this red string quilt.
So I'm seeing red this week. I'm busting out my favorite Christmas movies (White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life) and Christmas tunes (Josh Groban's album is high on that list) and piecing eleventy billion string blocks for the biggest string quilt I can make. I've got a best friend in Salt Lake City who doesn't know this is coming, but it has to get there before December! Nothing like a deadline to motivate you, right?
So, the list this week looks like this:
- Glue white strips to paper
- Piece red string blocks
This may or may not get interrupted by a long-arm session, if I get the chance. I've got a list of quilts that are ready to go the minute I get the text that the machine is free. It happened last Saturday, so I've got to be prepared! Because who would pass up a chance to finish another flimsy? Not this girl!
