Happy Tuesday!! I finally managed to get a post done by Monday evening. Amazing, right? Actually, it really IS amazing because I got caught up watching Tula Pink‘s video series on QNNTV.com. There are 6 of 12 videos posted and I watched episodes four through six tonight. I am blown away by her as a person and as a designer. I was a Tula fan before watching these videos, and after watching them I’m a Tula fan FOR LIFE.
This past week I got my 2014 Modern Insta Bee Blocks put together. I chose the May Block, Come Together, from Modern Bee — 13 Quilts to Make With Friends by Lindsay Conner. I am thrilled with how the top came out. Not so thrilled with the quality of some of the blocks I received. My blocks were supposed to be 20.5″ unfinished, but I ended up having to trim all of them down to the lowest trimmed block size which was 20″. Not a problem for me with this particular block design, thank goodness!
I started working on a quilt backing for my Grungy Windows quilt. Because the front has a lot of white on it, I decided to go fun, funky, and improv on the back. I grabbed some Kona solids from the shelf, and just started cutting them into big pieces. I put them up on the batting hung on my shelf (my make-do “design wall”) and then started sewing the pieces together. I have part of the top half of the backing done. I will work on finishing the backing this week.
This week’s To-Do list:
- Finish Backing for Grungy Windows quilt top
- Baste Grungy Windows top, batting & backing together
- Continue with the c25k program. Do the best you can and be satisfied with that!!!
