quiltathon update

I had a very productive quiltathon.
When I posted my list I knew I was setting some pretty lofty goals.
Here is what I got done.

quilt Heather's "Becky quilt"
I worked on this Friday night and Saturday

quilt my 30's quilt
worked on this Saturday and Sunday....finished about 4pm

assemble the green quilt top
finished on Sunday evening

I started cutting out my happy hour quilt. I got 7 out of 25 blocks cut.


binding for my log cabin scrap quilt
made on Sunday evening
(I am in love with this pink gingham. I don't know why I didn't buy the rest of the bolt.)

Many many many thanks go to my husband who didn't complain one single bit about all the quilting that went on this weekend. He is a wonderful man.

Just a few other notes about the weekend...I did go out on Saturday to deliver the quilt to Heather and pick up a pizza. On Sunday I went to church, so it's not like I stayed home all weekend chained to my sewing machine. :) The fridge was full of leftovers so there was very little cooking to be done. The kids played very well in their clubhouse (IKEA tent) set up in the living room and my husband worked on the computer while I was quilting. It was lots of fun.

Thanks to Judy for hosting!

WOO HOO!! You rock!! what a feeling of accomplishment you must have right now!!! I am inspired. The green quilt is awesome, as are all of your other projects.

My goodness you got a lot done. That's amazing! I love the brightness of the "Becky quilt."

I'm starting over on my quilt-a-long blocks. I just can't seem to get them to come out to 12.5 inch square blocks. I guess I'll just turn the blocks I've already made into something else. I'll have to do my own mini quilt-a-thon. :o)

Wow - you were so productive! Good for you. I'm envious now. I want 48 hours of uninterrupted craft time. Give that husband of yours a big kiss!

Anina said...

Well done! But I'm not surprised at all. This was definitely your cup of tea.

Pieces said...

Wow! So accomplished! That is really cool. Sometimes the only way I make progress on anything is to completely focus on it for days. This weekend I mostly accomplished sitting around on my tush. :)

Jacquie said...

Great work and a virtual quilt-a-thon. What a great idea! And look all that you accomplished! FANTASTIC!

Sara said...

Great week-end of quilting...I am thinking I really need to set aside 3 days and just get on it all! Thanks for inspiring me...

She sure is strange! said...

Beautiful work!! What about the green quilt gave you a problem? It came out just gorgeous! The 30s quilt is lovely too. I'm doing one in vintage fabrics(that my hubby bought for me-4 garbage bags FULL) but pairing some repros with it as well. One day soon I hope to have it made into a queen-size quilt! My favorite you've listed is the scrappy log cabin though, the colors are sweet!

ps, I'm left-handed too.
