Last weeks plans

  • Quilt my BOM A Quilting Life 2022 – just a bit every day, mostly going to do stitch in the ditch and something in borders. I’ve made a start and doing a block or so a day. Nothing fancy, stitching in the ditch – and I want a fairly soft feel to it. 
  • Make sewcialites blocks when they are published. Done. Didn’t do the 3 inch for this one. This is number 12 I so we are about half way through.  Designed by. Barbara Groves of Me & My Sister Designs.  Sewcialites 12
  • Make BOM Mystery quilt from FQS block that arrived last, about six or seven I think. Done. FQS Mystery Block
  • Whatever takes my fancy.     And as well I sewed together the blocks of No. 2 BOM from A Quilting Life 2022. This was a very scrappy one, made mostly from half square triangles I had left from other projects. Will leave it now, want to put a border on it but I don’t have any fabric to work in with it at present.Scrappy AQL BOM 2022 I also made one more block in the scrappy Irish Chain, so now I have three. I can now make one more block and then I have to wait a few weeks for the accent fabric to arrive. Scrappy Irish Chain 3
  • I also stitched together and put on the inner border on the Chilhowie Bonnie Hunter QAL.Now there will only be the outer border.Border 1 Chilhowie

Finally my calendar arrived from Snapfish, I was about to email them when it dropped at my door today!  NZ Post is very very slow!  Calendar 2023

This Week’s Plans

  • I am going to work on the final border for the Chilhowie top and then I can call that part of it finished.
  • Sewcialites block of course when it publishes.
  • Continue to quilt to BOM from A Quilting Life 2022
  • Anything that takes my fancy.

Thanks to Carol for hosting this year. And a Happy New Year to all with lots of fun quilting.

Plans Last Week included.

  • Finish Chilhowie blocks #5 and see what the next clue is on Saturday.  I completed clue #5 and now we have moved to #6 which calls for adding a round to clue 5. Clue #5 Chilhowie
  • Sew the Designer Mystery BOM block 6 together, pieces are cut out, ready.  Done BOm #6
  • The next Sewcialites block will post on Friday, so I’ll do that I hope.  Done. This was an easy block and so it didn’t take long to get the three blocks in the different fabrics done.Sewcialites 9

There are other things I could easily do, like tidying and sorting. Finishing off another top with borders.. I shall see.  I did a tiny little bit of fabric tidying and did get the borders sewn on my A Quilting Life BOM

For the Week 3rd January

  • continue to work on the Chilhowie Bonnie Hunter blocks.
  • The next Sewcialites block later in the week.
  • Complete doing the hand binding on my Magnolia quilt.

  • The next Sewcialites block will post on Friday, so I’ll do that I hope.
