The Weekly List
i finished the top of my girly string triangle quilt and made a pieced backing for it. once i can manage the upper body motions needed to do the quilting, it just needs to be basted and is ready to go!
i got my madrona road quilt for the houston modern quilt guild challenge completely finished. it's going to be a present for my co-worker and his wife for their second son, due around easter.
hexies kept me occupied for the two days right after my surgery. once upon a time i used to make TONS of hexies, and had them stashed away in a variety of bags and boxes. i mean, they're so fun and easy to make, but sewing them together is less fun. last year i had decided i needed to do something with them, so i'd started sewing some together into flowers. i got less than two done. i pulled out the bag this week, and i now have a piece roughly 8 x 8 inches. i've decided i'm just going to make a small mini quilt to hang on my wall. this won't use up anywhere close to the number of hexies i have, but at least i'll have something made out of them!
yesterday i also pulled out the leftover 12.5" 1930s repro blocks left over from the quilt i finished last year for our guest bed. i had 11 blocks, but out of those 11, i had 3 each of 2 blocks. after i pulled out the redundants, i had only 7 blocks. i decided i needed 9 blocks, with sashing, for a wheelchair-sized lap quilt, so i pulled my 30's fabrics and made 2 more blocks.
goals for this week:
---> finish 1930s wheelchair quilt top, prep binding and have ready to baste
---> prep binding for girly string triangle quilt
---> finish sewing together enough hexies for mini quilt, prep backing and binding
what's on YOUR list for this week?
