J4 – Autumn Leaf

This month’s challenge for the SBS Offline Quilters list is Autumn Leaf as a welcome to fall and 4 blocks from the following list in remembrance of summer:

I’ve previously completed the last two on the list, so it appears that I’ll be doing a bit of hand work this month, as 3 of the 5 remaining blocks are appliqué.  And yes, I hand appliquéd the stem on the leaf.

I made a big deal about fewer goals this week since I didn’t have a 3 day weekend.   But I still didn’t get everything done.  Between the push to finish Oklahoma Backroads and playing all day Saturday, I was worn out.  The only reason  I have 2 SBS blocks done is that I knew if I didnt’ get the second one done I’d only be able to cross off one item from my list.  Perhaps this Quilting Accountability really works!

  • Finish Oklahoma Backroads – Done!
  • Quilt daily on the DWR – No
  • Piece 2 SBS blocks – Done!
  • Make this month’s KVQG BOM – No

Also distracting me was the fabric my sister-in-law gave me.  There was a package of charm squares and a handful of similar FQs.  Although smaller that I typically like to make baby quilts, this quilt top will be great to practice free motion quilting on.

Only the white fabric will count on my Stash Report Sunday since  I haven’t added the gifted fabric in.  I found a yellow and white print in my stash which I’ll use for the backing.  Now to find a piece of batting big enough or piece one together.

Now for next week.

  • Get back on the DWR –I’m behind schedule
  • Make the September KVQG BOM
  • Piece 2 SBS Blocks

Check out the link over at Bari’s to see if others got met their goals for the week.

L8 – Kansas Troubles

This is the 10th block I’ve made this month for my Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler. That’s one for each week of the SBS BOW and 5 from the SBS Offline Quilters Challenge. It brings my total up to 64 out of 140 blocks.

There’s a new tab “sbs” which shows all of the blocks I’ve completed on a virtual design wall. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out how to just plug in my latest blocks to update the wall on-line. What you see is a screen shot of the “wall” I have on my laptop. Don’t expect it to be updated more than once a month.

What’s On My Design Wall August 23, 2010

Bits and pieces of several things.  The blocks at the top left are the first two blocks from the Kaw Valley Quilters Guild block of the month.   The two blocks on the far right are a couple of swap blocks.  I’ve got one more to do this month and then I’ll get them in the mail.

The two rows of 6″ blocks are the blocks from Row A of Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler.  I’m currently working on A6 – Tennessee and then I’ll be done with Row A.

Finally, the two 3″ pinwheels may or may not end up in a miniature quilt. They could just as easily end up in the Orphan Block box.

See if others are bouncing between multiple projects by following the links over at Patchwork Times.
