Monday Madness – 5/9/2016

Spooky Halloween Row 1, Block 1 In progress 5/9/2016

Spooky Halloween
Row 1, Block 1
In progress
5/9/2016

I started working on the first block of Spooky Halloween.  First, I cut the fabric and hand pieced the hexis together.  I have 2 hexis left to piece.  Then I’ll applique them onto the background fabric.  I would really like to get this block done this week.  The blocks will be 6.5″ unfinished.  My goal for this project is to finish a block each week. Since there are 5 blocks per row, I’d like to get 2 done in one of the weeks.

Last week’s to do list:

  1. Raining Cats and Dogs … Finish the machine quilting on this on my domestic and get going on hand quilting this baby… done
  2. Hand work – Work a bit on A Rainbow Garden …  done
  3. Knit – keep working on the Rosie Hat … not done
  4. Cross Stitch – work on the embroidery for the top border and the first row of the 1st page of Farmland! …  done
  5. Moon Glow – I don’t think I’ll be working on this this week. I want to focus on Raining Cats and Dogs, so I’ll probably skip this this week … not done
  6. Missing Ivy – Same – I want to focus on Raining Cats and Dogs so I’ll skip this this week … I actually worked a bit on this this weekend and finished step 10
  7. Celtic Solstice – Same – I want to focus on Raining Cats and Dogs so I’ll skip this this week … I pieced together some bits… 

This week’s to do list:

  1. Raining Cats and Dogs … start hand quilting! 🙂
  2. Hand work – Work a bit on A Rainbow Garden
  3. Knit – keep working on the Rosie Hat
  4. Cross Stitch – work on the embroidery for the top border and the second row of the 1st page of Farmland!
  5. Moon Glow – Check with my local sewing machine store about renting out their long arm.
  6. Missing Ivy – Step 11, which is piecing the inner top together. Yay! 🙂
  7. Celtic Solstice – put together pieces of Block B as leaders and enders between working on Missing Ivy
  8. Spooky Halloween – Row 1, Block 1 – I got some of the hexis done.  I still need to finish 2 hexis and then applique it onto the background and finish it up with an applique’d bat.

I’m looking forward to a great week!

  1. The hexagons look cute in those Halloween fabrics. I look forward to seeing each block on this quilt as you do it. You did a lot and have a good week’s plan.

  2. Wow! That’s going to be a wonderful Halloween quilt. The hexies you made are so pretty in the Halloween fabric. One day I’ll be brave enough to try a hexie – I love the way they look and the fact they are hand pieced. Have fun with this quilt!
