Are you checking things off your list?
Our friends at American Patchwork & Quilting have been working on their list, and they’ve worked on five tasks.
No. 7. Sew accurately using foundation piecing. If using Cake Mixes counts as foundation piecing, then I can cross this one off my list too.
But I will still try to get an actual paper-pieced block made this year.
No. 20. Take a picture or journal about each quilt made this year. Yes and no. I finished a quilt but it’s in a book so I can’t share it yet. But if pincushions count, then I’ve shared my to-date 2019 finishes.
I shared these pinnies on Instagram in January and February – individually and as a group.
No. 21. Assemble a pincushion. Ding ding ding. I might have made a few in 2019.
No. 38. Add a little – or a lot – of applique to a project. Project? Do labels added as embellishment count? If so, see pincushions above – check!
Okay, so it was just a little.
No. 46. Take part in a block exchange or swap fabric with a friend. I’ll have to work on this one.
But I’ve checked two other tasks off my list!
No. 11. Take a quilting class in person or online. I took a Zipper Bag Boot Camp “class” at a local quilt shop a few weeks ago. I learned a lot and had a great time with a terrific teacher and an energetic, funny and inspiring group of ladies. And I learned a lot!
While I had done many of the zipper techniques before, I learned so many terrific little tips that I was quickly getting better results. In the weeks since class, I’ve made three bags and cut out at least four more. These bags were made with the Boro Wovens – they’re in shops now.
Moda Love. My block – and project – might be a tiny bit smaller than what’s in the pattern. These squares and HTSs finish at 1/2″. I’ll share pictures of my string-along blocks soon.
So I’ve crossed off six tasks on my Quilting Bucket List.
How about you?
