this weeks progress

this week I got a customer quilt basted for her so she can hand quilt it.   This saves the knees and for older ones  no getting on the floor.. another quilt loaded to quilt  hopefully tomorrow.

I also got all 20 blocks done for my 2015 Bonnie Hunter mystery. Yes I know this is 2016 but it got set aside for other things  and then I started the 2016 one.    this is one of two blocks for the quilt.  I was moving right along with them and had 15 done and then stopped to count to make sure how many more I needed to make and looked at the first 3 that I had done last year and they were different from the 15 I had just made.  So decision was to rip all 15 blocks apart and start over or rip the 3 and remake them to match the 15   well I decided 3 was easier that 15 so  I created a new block for my quilt.    they are all done now and sliver trimmed to correct size.   this feels good to be this far and it is on my UFO list so that is even better.   Now I need to make the other block and pay attention to how it is suppose to go together...   I only have one of them done and I think there are 20 of them too.

here is the correct layout  

here is the one I made  and my sliver trimmings

I also made some tag quilts for Great Grandson and his best little friend  first one if for his BFF second one is his for his house and   the cubs one is for him at have at his  GIG's house.   He loved them right away   

my goal for resat of the year is to get several projects to the flimsey stage.  I have many projects in pieces and parts.   I surveyed another project called woodland clover by Pat Speth from a class few years ago with her.  All the blocks are made and pieced borders are made just needed sashing pieces cut and sewn  so I did that today.  Now this project is ready for the design wall next, as soon as I decided on setting triangle fabric for the one that is on the wall now.   
I feel like I got a lot done this week.  Hope next week will be as productive ... 

Oh I fogot  a friend helped me make a long skirt for my daughter out of the cubs fabric to wear to the game on Sunday.    Don't have a picture of it  but hope to get one with her wearing it soon.

Happy quilting
