August 2023

I am visiting my parents for a few days to help with a few things. It’s always nice to come home and hang out.

#1 – Wendy Mathson’s Storm at Sea/ Snails Trail

Storm at Sea / Snail’s Trail Wendy Mathson December 2022

This is a lot smaller than my last quilt in queue and I hope to get this done quicker than the last one. The only reason why I wouldn’t be able to is because of life consuming all my time.

I’m also taking my quilt guild’s workshop this month. It’s being taught by a guild member and is Alaska of Laundry Basket Quilts.

Our guild member is focusing on the center block but I love this quilt and plan to do the whole thing. There are several other colorways – Alaska Rainbow and Alaska Magic that I also love. I may be adding those to my one day some day list as well.

#2 Plum Fusion – Finish the top!

The only thing left to do on this quilt is to sew on the final border. Then it will be done and it will join my Quilt queue ! – This is being carried over from last month to this month. It’s really so close to being done but our guilld’s boutique is coming up in October and I’m working on things left and right to add to our stash of stuff to sell.

#3 – The Quilty Pleasure Saturday Sampler – the June and July block

April block

I need to take a picture of the May block and do the June and July blocks. I’m a little behind but it’s not too bad yet.

#4 – Tuella and Friends – block 1 – needs the hand embroidery before I can set it aside.

Tuella and Friends – block 1

#5 – Mountain Mist – continue working on this

#6 – Ornaments – all of these have been blanket stitched and are ready for the next step…

I decided to make it into a table mat. They aren’t stitched down yet so that’s what I’m working on.

#7 – Sashiko… I am keeping this on the list but this will have to wait until my ornaments are finished. There is just not enough time in the day.

#8 – Raining Cats and Dogs- this is an old hand quilting project that I set aside. I am adding this on this list to remember it and figure out how to get this done. Ideally It’s one of those projects I spend a little time on each day but I have a lot of those now and so need to think about my game plan.

Happy quilting!

    • yes. they each get something to contain them in. A box takes up a lot of room though. But I have a lot of plastic bins to put them in. And yes they can travel with me. I also like the big plastic ziploc bags. I have 2-5 gallon sizes. They aren’t ziploc though because I got them at the dollar store but they work well and are easily squishable to make it take less room.
