Welcome to a new week with a clean slate! How was your week? Let me update you on mine!

For the week of 5/1/23 – 5/7/23:

  • Bind and label May IB Challenge. This will be donated to our church to raise money for kids camp and youth retreat. ✔ DONE – This quilt is all ready to go. Thursday is my day on the blog hop, so come back then to check it out!
  • Work on Rainbow Neighbourhood Quilt Along. ✔ DONE – I got two houses completed!

  • Finish Block 3 of Amish With a Twist (AWT). ✔ DONE – Finished this at Sew Day Wednesday. It still needs a good pressing and trim, but I am loving this!
  • Cut out Block 4 of AWT maybe. ✘ Nope! Maybe this week!
  • Cut out F/W IB catalog quilt or at least get it started! ✔ DONE – I’m over half way! I’ll show you all the beautiful “pieces” when I finish this week!

For the week of 5/8 – 5/14:

  • Finish cutting IB Catalog Quilt.
  • Make another house or maybe two?
  • Cut out Block 4 of Amish with a Twist.
  • Test block for my pattern for F/W IB Catalog Quilt.
  • Don’t chase squirrels!! I have enough to keep me busy!!
