Design Wall Monday

I'm linking to Small Quilts Doll Quilt's Design Wall Monday and Monday Makings

Backing covering the two baby quilts I tested.
This is where all the table runners are waiting to be pieced.
Everything is cut and pinned together.
The top brown is from the class I took on Saturday.
They will be going into the container to be worked on AFTER I finish the must do items.

Motivational Monday

9-15 June 2019

1. Mug Rug

2. Baby clothing quilt stabilized
I've started to work on it 30 minutes at a time.
Hopefully I'll be able to get some progress on the clothing.
I plan to use it as the leader/ender from here on out.

Going through this craft closet I've found so many boxes of things that needed to be passed on.
Found a few non-quilting UFOs too.
It is a good feeling to know that they will be used by other Girl Scouts.
The cabinet to the right will need the same treatment, but should be a little simpler.
I need to go through the drawers to the left too.
I found lots of fleece that is going to the church ladies.
Some cotton fabric that had been used as curtains (about 6 yards)
This big giveaway is being dropped off on the 17th, so it will be out of the house and puts me more towards my goal of donating more fabric.

4.  Quilt CIL

5. Keep up with the Marvelous mini mystery
It is done!

6. Quilt Majhongg

7. Postcards (Unicorn Favorite Dessert, Window, Lottery, Bicycle)

All caught up on postcards!
One more came out this week.

8. Table decoration for reunion 1/20 done
All the embroidery is done.
All the pieces are cut.
I decided to just make them all the similar pattern and make it easier on me.
I'd have more fun if I had made different ones, but.....

9. Class topper/Tutti Frutti

10. Madam Mim

16 - 22 June 2019

This is another UFO.
It is quilted the flowers were from the focus fabric.
I think this must have been a kit because I don't think I'd have picked that background fabric.
But, I like it.

Fun 2 days

Lana & Judy's Tutti Frutti

My Tutti Frutti
I have no idea how I'm going to quilt this. 

Samm's project.

I didn't get a photo of Debbie's project.
She was preparing for applique. 

This is from the class I took this afternoon at the guild.
I don't have my blocks upstairs to take a photo of.
It was a fun class with wonderful people.

I'm tired tonight and my hips are saying that I sat too long at the sewing machine, but I sure did have a wonderful two days.

Postcards and Tablerunners

Bicycle and Favorite Dessert
I didn't digitize either one of these, but found the design to use. 
I had done the H before and found someone to send it to.
The Unicorn was lots of problems stitching out, but I think it turned out OK.
The kite was from before.
The sun is very hard to see in the yellow thread.
All caught up on postcards for now. 
A little better picture of the unicorn. 
Table runners in process.
All the embroidery is done.
All the cutting for the front is done.
There is red fabric behind the gray. :)
Need to find backing for them all.
I'll be working on them next week.

Tomorrow and Saturday are my fun days.
Tomorrow I plan on working on the Gail Garber's Tutti Fruitti.
I have all the pieces prepped and the fabric cut, so I'm hoping to make progress.
I have guild and then a class on Saturday.

We went through all the shelves and drawers in my craft closet (this section).
So much space.
All that stuff that was in there is now out of the house.
We took a run to goodwill and took them out that day.
There are still sections to go through, but this is BIG progress. 
Finished the binding on the Marvelous May Modern Mini Mystery.
I'll take it to guild on Saturday.
