So this past week I have been working on my Riley Blake challenge. I made flying geese and then figured out how I wanted to lay them out and needed to sew it together. Math and quilting go together however that has never been my strong suit. So I am much more let's see how it goes and figure it out.
My first attempt left the final square too small so with that information I unsewed the pieces and tried again and it was a success. I actually wrote down what I cut so I can repeat the process on the other half. When I did get it to work I was really happy and loving how it is turning out.
With the fly geese came HST large enough for me to want to do something with them. I shared this the other day and now I just need to figure out the back and quilt it.
I wanted to share this little ornament I found while on a quilting weekend with friends and gave to my husband to put in my stocking. I had forgotten about it and actually thought - "wow how did he find this?"
That is my motto this year! I have so many things I want to sew with plenty of fabric to sew through. So hopefully this will be my reminder as I am not buying anything new for awhile.
In my hope to stay on task and a little more organized this year I had bought a small white board and each week I am writing down small goals that I would like to get done. I think it is working. I do have a few of the items checked off already for the week. My plan is to update weekly but we will see. This hangs right above my cutting table.
#2 and #5 are done. I think #1 and #3 can be done tonight. It is gearing up to pull fabric for the City Sampler that I am not getting around to.
This weekend should be fun since I am going with a few friends to the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts. There is a truck show lecture on Saturday all day that I am going to and it should be fun! Lee will be there! Plus there is a Modern Quilt Exhibit and one of my quilts will be hanging in there with several others from the MMQG.
Happy Sewing! I am linking up to Lee at WIP Wednesday.
