Quilting and Flimsies
1. Finally, finally, finally, the Doors of Ireland quilt has moved to the top of the quilts-to-be-quilted pile. In Progress and currently in time out for misbehavior. (Yes, we love our quilts, but don't cross us if you know what's good for you.)
Finish the top for "A Cat is a Cat". I kind of jumped ahead with my own kitty portraits and left Samson in the dust. Poor Samson still needs top-stitching. Complete!
And finish Smitty's pawtrait, of course. Complete!
This is always a fun challenge, and I've ended up with some pretty cool quilts that would never have been made otherwise. Complete!
And I'll take another shot at the Block Lotto in November. Complete!
Continue on with the blocks for the Live, Love, Teach quilt. This time, I'll be doing Blocks 33-36 of the 56 total blocks. Complete!
No bonus points for me, I'm afraid since the Doors of Ireland and I couldn't come to a meeting of the minds. But that didn't stop me from finishing up one of my bonus projects.
Finally, for bonus points, I'll try to get the quilting done for the Feed the Cat quilt. Complete!
In December, I'm going to change things up a little from my usual "meat and potatoes" projects. There are some things I want to finish before year's end, and so I think I'll start this list of goals with the projects already started.
Quilting and Flimsies
1. I want to finish quilting and binding the Doors of Ireland, pictured above.
2. At least get a start sewing together the Quilting Snowladies, also pictured above.
3. I want to complete four more blocks for the Live, Love, Teach quilt. These are the ones on tap for December. When these are complete, I will have finished 40 of the 56 blocks.
4. There are three more blocks to finish for the Cats of a Different Color quilt, and that will bring the 2015 Rainbow Scrap Challenge to a close.
There were three each of the four different blocks in this quilt, and it made sense to do the sets of three all at the same time. (Conveniently, this makes an excellent excuse for allowing the project to fall three months behind.) With that in mind, it's time to make the blocks for October (brown), November (green), and whatever color is chosen for December. These are the blocks I have so far:
5. This month's block for the Block Lotto is a simple scrappy block, and so I'll make one for that challenge.
So those are the "meat and potatoes" projects for the month. Then I'm going to have some fun.
Just for Fun
6. First on the just-for-fun list is to make up the Scrappy Santa door hanger kit I ordered in November.
9. At least get started on the quilt I'd like to make from my autumn leaves photograph.
So that's a pretty big list, but December is a long month. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
What's on your list for this last month of 2015?
