WIP Check In
Last week, I posted my tentative goals for the last three months of the year and thought, maybe it would be a good idea to post (maybe not every week) about how the list and I are getting along. So, one week after making the list I'm still feeling pretty good about my tasks.
I purchased a backing fabric at a LQS for the snowman quilt, to move it closer to a finished state.
I'm just loving all these top hatted snowmen. It actually kind of makes me think of wrapping paper. As of now it sits folded neatly on my sewing table all basted up and waiting for its turn on the Sweet Sixteen. I had hoped to have it quilted last weekend, but needed to work on a deadline project instead.
The MOD Bear Paw QAL quilt actually received more attention than I intended to give to it. I'm going to use it as a leader/ender project through out the next 3 months (aiming for a finish), but late Sunday night I was in the mood to sew HST's together, so I devoted a bit more time to it.
On Thursday of last week, these showed up...
a set of 6 curved quilting rulers from The Quilted Pinapple (not an affiliate link)...or as my friend, Helen at Midget Gem Quilts, calls them, my quilty boomerangs. I decided to invest in these babies to help increase the amount of ruler work I can do, and they have been well worth the investment.
This is the back of a quilt I am working on for the Autumn Abundance Blog Hop hosted by Bernie at Needle and Foot next week.
The hop is being sponsored by Paint Brush Studios and they graciously donated fabrics to each participant from their new fall lines for our projects. Make sure you check in with Bernie for a complete list of our schedule. I believe I will be revealing my project on Thursday, October 27th.
And with that I will leave you with, when good quilting goes bad...
I'm still new to ruler work, but man, someone strayed way off their ruler on this one. It has since been ripped out (and I'm not usually a ripper) and has been corrected.
So nothing crossed off my list yet, but I'm so close to two finishes, I can almost feel them. Back to work!
Today I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social.
