Weekly quilt update & goal

Happy Monday! The past week was pretty good. Of course, as always I didn’t accomplish quite as much as I had wanted to. Joined another quilt guild, this one is in Hobbs, they get together every Wed. morning to sew together. What fun! It will take me less than 10 minutes to drive there. I can’t wait.

I’ve never done paper-piecing but I’ve signed up for a class, joined an online group and printed a pattern for a birdhouse wall hanging. Looks much easier than I had thought. 😀

Crooked Log Cabin Ducky Quilt– I didn’t touch this quilt all last week. I’m pitiful.
Sweet Baby Jane– Another quilt I didn’t touch all week.
Piecing the Trail to Kansas – YAY!! Got my pattern and purchased enough fabric for the background and enough fabric to get me started. I’m going to use cream and red. I’m sure I will have to incorporate some other colors. I’m so excited to get started on this quilt. I sat and read the story behind the quilt.
Chocolate & Pink Purse #1– Nope, didn’t work on this either.
Friends Quilt– This top is finished but I’m not ready to drop it off at the quilter’s. I’m still enjoying just looking at it.
Butterfly Pillowcase– I was really surprised at how much I had got done on this when I took it out of the hoop. This project is hard to work on because of all the extra fabric from the pillowcase is always in the way.
Animals on Parade– I only worked on this one afternoon. Which there is no rush doing this since it is for my kitchen.

Weekly Goals for Project List
Apples and Pie (paperpieced) – select fabrics, piece

Birdhouse (paperpieced) – select fabrics, piece

Chocolate & Pink Purse – cut lining, sew

Chocolate & Pink Tote – cut, sew

Piecing the Trail to Kansas- BOM cut and sew Sept block

Happy quilting!

I ordered two grab bags from Pat Sloan, one in red and one in pink. I can’t wait for them to get here. I have no idea what I will do with these cuts of fabric, I just wanted them. I do intend to use some of the pinks for Quilt Pink blocks.

I have a few things on my list of things I want to do today. I want to work on the framing of the ducks and make the chocolate and pink purse.

I couldn’t stand it any longer so yesterday I opened the cross-stitch kit for Animals on Parade. I guess I gave myself a treat for being half finished with the butterfly pillowcase. Animals on Parade is going to be sew cute! When finished this piece will hang in my eat-in kitchen. I have a blank space on the wall saved for it! How’s that for motivation??

Hope everyone has a great quilt-y day!!
