Making Progress!

I’ve made some progress on May’s One Block Wonders BOM. I decided to make a table runner using 6 blocks from May’s design.

I altered the 12″ May Blooms blocks to 6″ to create a 14″ x 43″ table runner. The appliqué pieces are fused in place using Misty Fuse, but still need to be stitched down. I really do like how this is looking!

I just finished machine quilting, literally – just minutes ago – May’s Machine Quilting Block Party BOM.

Night time photo color is way off! That is a white background. And I still need to remove the marking for the quilting guide lines. Ugh. Horrible photo. Sorry. But hey! I’m now ready for the June block that will be posted tomorrow!

I also made progress on the t-shirt Hobo bag. The red is a t-shirt and the black batik is forming a pocket. The Batik is also the lining. The flip side is a made from a black t-shirt. More photos next time. Straps will be solid black and the batik.

All it needs is the shoulder straps. I could have finished it last night, but decided to make the straps adjustable. Daughter and I ran errands today, and my plan was to stop at Joann’s and see what kind of hardware they have. I forgot to stop! I was just down the road by a few blocks, and totally forgot. And later I was even across the street from Hancock’s (going out of business) and mentioned to my daughter that I want to stop in Hancock’s after we finished in the store she wanted to stop in at. We both forgot! Let’s hope I can remember tomorrow!

I really am a list person and should have had a list today to remind me to stop at Joann’s! How about you, are you a list person?

To-Do List for this week.

  1. Start June’s Machine Quilting Block Party BOM
  2. June’s One Block Wonders pattern should be available Friday!
  3. Helping son pack and move.


How did I do on last’s week To-Do List?

  1. Hobo bag – making progress!
  2. Curvy Quilters meet Thursday, I’ll work on the BOMs. ✔︎
  3. I’m adopting a WIP from a local lady. It is a Trip Around the World. I pick it up today to finish the top for her. I’ll share more next week. ✔︎ This project turned out to be an Amish Diamond in a Square out of prints that I am guessing are from the 70′s. I didn’t take pictures, but the top is complete and returned for quilting.

I’m linking to To-Do Tuesday and Connie’s Linky Tuesday.

    I love what you’re working on – everything is so different! Your FMQ is looking GOOD! Also, I’m excited to see your adopted WIP once you get some pics taken.

    That’s such a great idea for the One Block Wonder. Love that table runner. Your free-motion quilting looks great, especially your cross hatching. I’m wishing now I had the time to do that quilt along this year. I love your hobo bag pattern too. What a great way to showcase the t-shirt, and the fabric combination looks great!

    I have done that so many times while being out shopping. If I don’t have what I want to do written down, I’m definitely going to forget it too. Ugh! I feel for you! I’m excited to see your adopted WIP too. You’ve got a busy week ahead, I hope all goes well for you!
