To-Do #1

The I Spy quilt for Dominic is all finished!  Happily, it turned out so darn cute, and a post was shared about it last Friday.  It was a very fun quilt to make, and it came together with help from some of our quilting friends .  Thank you again, ladies.  This also gives me a chance to share a picture of the new owner with his new quilt.  We could not coax a smile from him at that moment – not to worry though he had plenty more for us throughout the afternoon.

To-Do #2

The t-shirt quilt is for a good friend, Pat.  She is traveling this week – actually on a two week road trip through several southern states.  I can’t share the final product until we give the quilt to Pat, but I can share a shot of the quilting that commenced.

I chose a wide crosshatch stitch with the lines about two inches apart.  We started out the process in our usual way of putting down a line of masking tape to stitch next to for the first row.

To-Do #3

Last week was a great week for finishes as not only I Spy was complete but so was Bubbles.  Here’s a shot of the binding being sewn on.  On Friday we’ll share all the happy details about this adorable quilt.

We completed the first step in the Fireburst Mystery Quilt.  If you recall, this was one quilt that I promised I would make on my own but Sue relented and has been a big help.

June OMG Goal:

Our Elm Street Quilts June OMG goal is to finish the Tea Flower mystery QAL #2 quilt top.  I’ve started on thinking about the how-to-be-quilted dilemma as the quilt top is now a flimsy.

To-Do June 11th through 17th:

  1. Layer Tea Flower quilt
  2. Finish binding t-shirt quilt
  3. Happy Father’s Day

    Dominic is growing so fast! Wow! He looks fantastic on his quilt! The hand quilting on Bubbles is fantastic!

  3. Rebecca Grace says:

    I love the look on Dominic’s face — like a grown man, demanding to know what all the fuss is about! My husband makes that face when I start talking about quilting, too. 🙂

    So organized with your lists! I’m so impressed. I have so many things I want to do, but this working for a living gig is screwing it all up!

    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    I love the checked fabric you are using in the fireburst mystery. I look forward to seeing bubbles later in the week. Is that hand quilting I see? That baby and the eye spy quilt are so adorable.

  8. Busy, Busy Busy. Love the I spy and cute baby even though he is not smiling.

  9. Preeti says:

    I am sure you will go from to-do to ta-da in no time. That expression and stance is priceless!!!

  10. You keep finishing your to-do lists! Yay for you! Is Sue making her own Fireburst?
