GET IT DONE 2013 - FEBRUARY Goals
1) Machine quilt 4
quilts from my LA-UFO stack. One quilt is partially finished; it's on
zippers, so I just need to put it back on the longarm and start stitching
again. Two will be chosen randomly from my stack; and one will be the QOV I didn't get quilted in January.
Design & piece Red Basket Xmas quilt (UFO). My quilting friend
and I usually make one quilt a year for which we use the same pattern.
They turn out so differently--color, fabric, embellishments,
settings--it is so much fun to compare when they are finished. Anyway,
Sandi will probably finish hers soon--and I haven't gotten beyond the
center motif (which has been done for over a year!).
Finish Embroidered Undercover Kids quilt (UFO). I have the 12 blocks
machine embroidered, but will need to make the blocks larger as they are
about 6-inch squares. I'm thinking of using a flying geese setting
around each embroidered piece.
DONE 4) Finish piecing the top of the blue/lavender Pineapple quilt I started in January (being wooed by the siren song in my head instead of piecing a second QOV!). It's close--just need some corners added before I sew the blocks together--then borders, backing, and binding. (UFO)
Whew! I'd better get started tomorrow--it's a short month! My report on January goals is below--not all done, but progress made!
January, 2013 Goals:
DONE 1) Finish piecing R/W/B String QOV Delivered to Diane for Valley Piecemakers WY project.
2) Machine quilt Blue/W
Labyrinth QOV. Not done, but the backing is made and on the longarm. This will be added to my February goals.
1 DONE 3)
Piece 2 Labyrinth QOVs in R/W.
Make 2 Fall/Pumpkin table runners. I actually made 2 of the Fall/Pumpkin table runners (am only showing one)--the other one is 72 inches long. The fabric is beautiful (one I was having a hard time cutting!)--it has gold metallic outlining the pumpkins. I didn't have any fusible cotton batting so I used Warm&Natural instead. The "Easter Egg" table runner (showing 2 pictures so you can see the backing) is one I made before--I made 2 and gave one away. I still need to find some large lavender buttons to put on each end--then I will fasten tassels to the buttons. I don't decorate much for the different seasons/holidays--but like to have different table runners as when someone comes over, we seem to congregate at the table.
