Getting It Done in March/April Goals

My March goals were:

  • Complete the blocks for 9-Surrounded at retreat in Danville
    Not only did I complete the blocks, I got them all sashed with cornerstones, ready for borders.

  • Complete the blocks for Picnic at retreat in Danville
    Didn’t touch this one. I had too much fun making Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks instead.

  • Sandwich Orca Bay
    Not only did I get this one sandwiched, but it is now quilted (as of yesterday) and the binding is half sewn down. I had it in my head that my goal was to finish this quilt. Silly me.

  • Finish the baby quilt started in February
    Done and delivered.

In addition, to these goals, I:

  • Sandwiched Easy Street, Asian Splendor, and Roll Roll Cotton Boll.
  • I found a layout I like for the Pink Roll Roll Cotton Boll blocks I have finished.
  • Made a Topponcino for my niece who is expecting a girl in August.
  • Started a black and white quilt for my grandson.
  • Did quite a bit of hand quilting on the Christmas quilt that has been hanging around for way to long.

I’ll post pics of these accomplishments in another post.

For April, I’d like to:

  1. Sandwich Monster Bash (Need to choose and make a backing first.)
  2. Quilt Easy Street (Sandwiched and ready to go)
  3. Quilt Roll Roll Cotton Boll Blue. (Sandwiched and ready to go)
  4. Border one of the Key Hole quilts. (Decisions, decisions….)

Design Wall Monday Nov 22


A quick post to show you what’s on my design wall. I’m working on three things at once. Big surprise!!

At the top of the pictures are the Churn Dash blocks I’m using to frame the autographed squares from my niece’s baby shower. She is using a jungle theme in the nursery so the green and gold fit right in with her color scheme.

Below those is just a sampling of Part 1 from Bonnie’s latest mystery that started Friday, Roll Roll Cotton Boll. As I usually do with these mysteries I’ve made half the number of units to see where this is going. I’m following Bonnie’s color scheme so far of pinks and greens, all from stash. I’ve got my browns and neutrals pulled from stash as well. Part 2 is coming up this next Friday. Can’t wait.

And at the bottom of the photo is the beginnings of a Twister Christmas Wreath wall hanging. I got the idea here. I already made a Twister (or Square Dance) quilt earlier this year for a baby boy. So I used the same 6″ size squares so I could reuse the template I made for that first quilt.

That’s my update for this Monday.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
