Design Wall Tuesday

This last week I was able to get all of my goals done!  I got a baby quilt top put together, and I finished the 2nd border tonight, which is a relief to have the top done!

To help get the top to this stage, I had learned, as I was about to sew things together, that the pre-cut squares I got from a manufacturer, were not cut to a Charm Square size, instead I had to go down and trim them all by 1/4", which was frustrating within itself.

I was able to attend a sew day on Saturday, and I got a Christmas gift laid out.  I got about two-thirds of the rows sewn together.

In addition to getting the quilt top finished, and the Christmas present worked on, I was able to trim these two items as my LQS has bigger mats I can use when I am there.  It was an awesomely productive day!

My goal for the week are pretty simple.  My only goal is to iron this fabric, cut out the quilt, and hopefully start to sew the top together so I can get it quilted the following weekend.

Simple right?  I hope I am able to get a lot done so I can make my quit appointment.  I also need to think about what my August One Monthly Goal will be.

  1. Oh it is so frustrating when you have to trim blocks that are supposed to already be the right size!!! I've had the same thing.. but you did well and the quilt top is gorgeous! xx

  2. You got so much done! I am plodding along, but you have inspired me to step-it-up. Thanks!
