I had the best intentions but the squirrels kept me away!!
I had so many plans that this was the week I was really going to get some quilting done. Granted, I did get some done but wow…not nearly what I had hoped to accomplish. In my defense, I voted on Tuesday and then caught up with my son Karl over supper out. Family tradition is to go out to after voting. We checked out the new Mexican Restaurant in Calmar, Iowa. It was good but a little spendy.
I got a new foster puppy on Saturday. I will tell you all about him in the evening post. He’s a sweetie for sure!!
I went to another of those “junk/vintage” sales I got to and yes, I bought something that had me rearranging my bedroom. There went a big chunk of quilting time. I’ll tell you about that in an upcoming post as well.
I also made a big salad and 24 eggs worth of deviled eggs for the church fundraiser.
But…you’re not here to hear all about that. What was I sewing?
During the days I worked I made a big effort to try to squeeze in just 20 minutes either at the machine or at the cutting table trimming blocks.
I managed to get a stack of blocks sewn. I also cut out a few more of the neutral pieces to make more blocks. I have made enough that I think I need to stop and see how many I have and make some sort of decision about how many I want to make. UGH. This is the part I hate…decisions.
I pulled some backing fabric for my Tribute to Judie quilt. This is a piece I picked up at the thrift store some time ago. There wasn’t a price tag on it but I think it was only 50 cents. There was exactly the amount I needed so I’m making it work. The rusty brown is about the same color as the setting blocks. I got that seamed together and ironed.
I got the quilt loaded onto the frame too.
I got the bobbins loaded but no actual quilting yet. Soon I hope.
The other thing I got done was…I bound my Tumalo Trail quilt.
I never declare them a finished quilt until I have the finished pictures taken, the blog post written and I hit publish…So I’m REALLY close to a finish…just not quite.
So next week…
I hope to get my Tribute to Judie quilt finished…and bound.
I also hope to make a plan for my square in a square smores quilt.
Dare I hope to also pull another UFO and start working on it? I’m hoping to but who knows what will happen?
What are you busy sewing? Is anyone else working on Smores/Square in a Square blocks?? How many do you have done?
