by | Sep 18, 2023 | 7 comments

Mondays are tough only for those people, who don’t know how to spend them cheerfully. Get up and have fun today!


Happy Monday morning, my quilty friends! I hope I help start your Monday off with a smile today! So how was your week? Before you tell me, let’s see how my week progressed!

  • Guild meeting Monday (today) – our first of the fiscal year! I will turn in my Sunny Rails a’la Pinwheels quilt to our comfort quilt chairperson. ✔ DONE!! We had 35 comfort quilts turned in today.
  • Begin October Island Batik Challenge. ✔ DONE!! Here is a photo of one of the blocks. There are three different blocks in this little quilt. This block is made using the AccuQuilt North Carolina Star Block on Board Die. I will be making two other blocks using portions of this die!
  • Possibly get a quilt on the frame and begin quilting it. I have a couple of flimsies in need! ✘Nope I did not!
  • Whatever else suits my fancy! ✔ DONE!! I finished writing my pattern for the F/W 2023 Island Batik catalog AND I have my two S/S 2023 catalog quilts ready for publishing. Check back later this week! A friend and I also visited a guild that meets in my hometown about 30 miles south of me! We had a great time and enjoyed the program a lot.

For the week of 9/18 – 9/24/23:

  • Continue working on October IB challenge.
  • Get a flimsy on the frame if the mood strikes!
  • Bind another quilt if the mood strikes! LOL
  • And lastly, I’m going with whatever else suits my fancy!!

    Good morning, Brenda! Thank you for starting my day with a chuckle and a smile. Thank you also for the linky party! I always find inspiration and the occasional squirrel project from other linkers. Wow – 35 comfort quilts is just fabulous. Think of all the people who will receive comfort and exponentially beyond that! Good luck with your list and have a fabulous week. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
