15 Min to Stitch and To Do Tuesday

15 Minutes to Stitch

Days this week:  6/7
Days this month:  16/19
Days in 2018:  187/231
To Do Tuesday:

Last week's  goals:

  • Get my class website ready for school that starts next week
  • Applique' eyes on my horse quilt - the applique' is fused but not stitched
  • Quilt the horse quilt
  • Applique' baby cowgirl - the applique is fused but not stitched
  • Finish the baby cowgirl quilt top
  • Finish quilting and bind Mariella's quilt
  • Sew some Buggy Barn house blocks - I started the houses but didn't get very far

It doesn't look like I did very much, and while I could have done more, I did sew quite a bit.  I took leftover pieces and sewed them together to put on the back of the horse quilt and made bee blocks (pictured in an earlier post).  

I have been sewing these Buggy Barn pattern quilts with a friend.  We do it together when timing suits us.  I didn't expect to start the bees this week but am glad I did. 

I also started to assemble the house blocks.  The roof sections are done.  Some of these blocks will go in my Pieceful Country Quilt.

This week's goals:

  • I plan to get out the Bernina and blanket stitch around the applique' pieces on the bees, horses, and baby cowgirl quilts all at once this week.  Normally I sew on my Juki which only does a straight stitch. 
  • I hope I really finish quilting and binding Mariella's quilt.  This has been my goal all month but I haven't felt like machine quilting.
  • Prepare a back and baste the horse quilt
  • Quilt the Horse quilt
  • Assemble the cowgirl baby quilt
  • Finish piecing my house blocks
I am linking up with Monday Making!

That horse quilt is going to be such fun. You had a good week on the stitching front. Happy stitching this week and good luck with all your stitching goals.

I LOVE the house block too. Is that a Buggy Barn one as well? Super cute.

Your blocks are absolutely stunning! Wow! I'm so impressed! I just finished some appliqueing on my Bernina - for the first time - and I loved it! How neat that you will be doing the same thing this week! :)
