Monday: Nothing a bit of quilting can’t fix. May your coffee be strong and your Monday productive!!


Well, welcome back to Monday Musings!! I hope you all had a great week and a happy and safe 4th of July for those of us in the USA. Mine was fairly productive, but not OVERLY so! Sometimes a little break does us good. Let’s recap the plans for last week.

For the week of 7/3 – 7-9:

  • Finish quilting my friend’s quilt. ✔ Done! This is a beauty that she purchased as a kit…with Island Batik fabric!! It is so pretty, I think.
  • Hopefully get Lovely Neighborhood quilted also. ✘ Nope. I failed to get the backing made!
  • Cut out those Amish With a Twist blocks so I’ll have something to work on at sew day Wednesday! ✔ Done! I’ll have at least one to work on!
  • More cleaning in the studio. ✔ Done!
  • Whatever else suits my fancy! ✔ Done! I made a back for another UFO that’s been in my stash for YEARS! It’s on the frame and ready to go.

For the week of 7/10-7/16:

  • Start quilting the UFO.
  • Get at least one Amish With a Twist block completed.
  • More cleaning in the studio.
  • That’s enough for this week. I’ll be washing and packing for a get away this weekend into next week.

Here is a recap of our quilty friends’ shares from last week. There were some gorgeous projects linked up! As always if you want to learn more, check last week’s post for the links!

  1. The Morning Latte

    That’s a beautiful quilt and I like the design you put on it. When it comes to backings, I have a tendency to just jump right into making it the minute I finish my quilt–before I even have time to develop that “I don’t wanna make the backing” feeling! LOL

  2. Kathleen McCormick

    Backings are often an impediment to quilting. I just did one and I would say it is a bit short on extra for the width. I think I am going to go with it anyway as I don’t plan to quilt it too heavily. Good luck getting yours done this week!

  3. Melisa - Pinker n Punkin Quilting

    Beautiful job on completing the quilting on your friend’s quilt. It is a beauty. The border fabric is so yummy. I hope you have a wonderful week, Brenda.

    You did great on your goals! I’ve been in a lazy mood, not getting much done in the sewing room, but I’m still moving fabric around, lol!
