I was at our LQS for Friday and Saturday taking a class with Cat Wilson for Judy Niemeyer's paper piecing patterns. I had two goals, I completed one, and only got the other goal half way done. But, I am closer to getting it done than I was before, and I will be able to get help on the part after when she comes back to the shop at the end of April. Here is what I completed.
I can not wait to get this quilt fully put together because it is going to look awesome with the colors I choose.
Now it is time to think about what I'm going to try and get done during the week. My first goal is to cut out this lovely baby quilt, which will be a simple rail fence quilt. I am going to make it scrappy, so I need to cut each individual piece out and then start sewing. I did not make any progress on this last seven weeks and still failed to work on it. So I really hope I can this week, especially since it is my October OMG, and I have to think about my November OMG. (My goal is to cut it out on tomorrow night)
My second goal is to iron and cut out the fabrics for my Proud Mary quilt, which is my quilt for Busy Hands Quilts QAL from the Splash of Color book by Jackie Kunkel. My goal is to stay up to date with this QAL. (I am cutting it close on this one, as it needs to be done tomorrow...)
My third goal is to start quilting this panel for a chenille blanket. My niece loves Doc McStuffin', and it contains her two favorite colors, pink and purple. I hope to get it fully quilted on my new machine, and two layers cut on all the rows to chenille it. Maybe I will even get the binding prepped, can I hope that far? It will be so much easier to quilt it on my new machine.
My fourth goal is to start working on Clue 4 for a mystery (no longer a mystery) Bel Canto quilt at my LQS. I want to get it done by the second Saturday so I can try and win free money. (Who does not want that). I want to try and pick out my fabric strips and iron them, and maybe even cut everything to start putting it together.
The last item is when I have spare time in the evening/during laundry time, which is to finish knitting this afghan. I have about 2 rows left, maybe 5 depending upon size. I made great progress this last week. I am really hoping to finish this week so I can share it during Finish it Up Friday.
Hopefully I have not planned to do too much based on the time I have available, as I am still working on not planning too much. Next week we will see how I did.
