May your coffee be strong and your Mondays be short.


Isn’t that the truth?!!! I have a lot of business to handle this week so I’ll be getting my coffee and rock -n roll on! LOL Let’s check out the goings on from last week.

For the week of 8-21 – 8/27:

  • Finish last set of diamonds for stars. DONE!! And here is the photo of the last set of six!
  • Begin assembling star blocks. DONE!! All blocks are assembled! No photo yet!!
  • If flimsy gets completed, make backing and get it on the frame for quilting! NOPE!! But…the flimsy is in process – half of the rows are together and working on the next three. This is a BIG quilt – 96 x 96!!

For the week of 8/28 – 9/3/23:

  • Finish flimsy.
  • Make backing.
  • Start quilting.
  • Maybe visit a quilt shop with my sewing buddies!

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!
