Make-A-List Monday: Back in town!

Greetings everyone!

I just spent a whirlwind weekend with my family for my birthday and it was fabulous. Got to see five of my six brothers, two sisters-in-law, and two nephews (including my brand new baby nephew Cooper!). We had delicious food, went hiking, then swimming. I trimmed a whole quilt's worth of HSTs too! It was fun and I'm energized for the week now.

And what a week I've got planned! Here we go with the list:

  • Bind the two quilts I quilted last week
  • Make bindings for the quilts I'm quilting this week (3 of them!)
  • Quilt 3 quilts
  • Cut out Four Patch Star (if I can every figure out what fabric I'm going to use!)
  • Sew Four Patch Star blocks
  • Start making plans for semi-annual Cut-A-Thon!
That's all. That's enough, right? And yoga. Lots of yoga.

Want to help me with an internal debate?

I think I might want to make my Four Patch Star quilt from solids. And I thought I'd use one of my color palettes. Vote for your favorite!

Cherry Blossoms

Bright Tulips

Candy Rainbow

Daisies and Blue Skies

Tulip Basket


  1. I like them all but my favourite is Tulip Basket, totally my colours!

  2. They are all great color combos! My favorite is the daises and blue skies.

  3. Daisies and Blue Skies are my favorite for your Star Blocks. Looking forward to what you choose!

  4. I am STILL totally enthralled with the Bright Tulips palette. I've been collecting these colors in fat quarters, wherever I go, for about 2 years. I guess it's time to make a quilt top.

  5. What a list, you make me feel like the slacker I am! LOL
    That tulip basket is my fav.

  6. Love that Daisies and Blue Skies color palette!

  7. I like the cherry blossoms colors. I'm a new reader and don't know which four patch star you are referring to, so I will check back again to see if you post a pic of it.
