Maw-valous Monday!

Spooky Halloween Row 3, Block 3 8/22/16

Spooky Halloween
Row 3, Block 3

I’m slowly working on the piecing for Row 3 and 4 for Spooky Halloween.

Here was my list last week:

  • Hampton Ridge – prep the batting … I want to get this on the frame this week — the batting is ready but this is not yet on the frame.  I’m actually contemplating renting time on the long arm at a local sewing machine shop.  I’ll let you know how it goes… 
  • Celtic Solstice – hold off on this as Missing Ivy’s border prep is being worked on as my leaders/enders while I work on Spooky Halloween pieced blocks and Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas… done… I finished what I could do for leaders/enders and now I’m back to putting together the rows for block b. 
  • Missing Ivy – prep this border as my leaders/enders … done… the pieced border is done and now I’m ready to move on to the next step of Missing Ivy. 
  • Provence – hold off on this one
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – continue to applique more pieces and get a pieced block done.  I’m tired of not getting anything finished for this quilt even though I’m working on it.  Handwork is so slow and I need to get a pieced block done so I feel like I’m making progress here.  I just picked up Row 4 so I’ve got pieced blocks I can work on in Row 3 and Row 4. … started working on getting the pieced blocks done. 
  • Have yourself a Quilty Little Christmas … create my project page and Month 3: block 1 … done (woot woot!)

So this week, here’s my target:

  • Hampton Ridge – quilt this
  • Celtic Solstice – work on this as my leaders/enders while I piece Spooky Halloween together.
  • Missing Ivy – start putting the borders on
  • Provence – press the blocks and figure out what’s the next step for this.
  • Spooky Halloween … get all the piecing done for Row 3 and 4 and continue appliquè Row 2, block 1

I’m looking forward to a great week!
