First on the agenda this weekend, I pulled out Dancing with the Stars. These paper pieced blocks are really time consuming, so I need a pretty big chunk of time before I'm willing to tackle any of them. I have to wash the fabric (by hand, because the pieces are so small in the kit), dry it, cut the pieces, and paper piece each block - most containing upwards of 40-50 pieces. This was my main focus this past weekend, and I successfully completed 4 blocks in 2 days of work. Two blocks left to go, and I think this entire quilt is complete and ready for assembly.
And now, it's time to go back to work. After 2 weeks off, this is going to be a bit of a shock, and my quilting will, I'm sure, suffer for it. But on the good side, I have lots of progress to show for this weekend.
Current progress on "Getting it Done"
- Catch up on Dancing with the Stars BOM - 4 blocks done, 2 left to go
- Catch up on Gardener's Alphabet stitching.
- Quilt Grant's quilt. Loaded, and 2 passes quilted
- Make 2 quilties for guild this month.
