On the Getting it Done challenge, the four items of the month were:
1. Finish Chevron tablerunner. Not yet completely done, but well on its way. Today I pieced batting and got the backing cut, sandwiched and pin basted, and quilted in the cream chevrons. I consulted with the recipient (DD Elaine) a few days ago for a quilting plan and we both decided to keep the colored chevrons unquilted. I will attempt stippling in the red border with cream thread as she requested, but may not like it very much--we shall see if it stays or if I go buy red thread!
3. Trace at least 4 designs for Greenpiece BOM applique and cut out of wool. Not done. Tracing is on the agenda for tonight.
4. Do unsewing on Judy's Mystery quilt backing and repair to correct length. Not done. The project did get pulled out of the closet and given a once over review. I sure wish I had made notes for myself as to the repair process! As I recall, the backing is about a foot short, which will make for some unattractive repairs since it is a pieced border with cornerstones, but hey, this quilt is for ME, who can overlook those things!
So one item is complete, one is 2/3 complete, two others incomplete, and it is 11 days from the end of the month. Doing okay so far but need to step it up this week to make the deadline for this challenge.
Other progress was made on the Picnic quilt. The remaining block pieces had been cut and stacked to the side of my sewing machine at least six weeks ago. As of this post, only nine more blocks are waiting to be sewn.
Binding had been attached to the mini Kitchen Sink quilt but I forgot to add triangle corners for hanging, so that was done today as well.
Task List making on a daily basis is a habit I need to return to--it really helps me with that forward motion.
