Make a list Monday 5-27-19

So, I am a day late in getting this posted.  Oh well, life goes on.

It has been a while since I have posted.  But let's see what I am going to work on this week, shall we?

1.  I need to get these 2 blocks finished for a swap.  These are granny square blocks.

2.  Bind this little mini quilt for a wall hanging for 1 grandson.

3.  Work on quilting this quilt.  This is a quilt for my daughter and her hubby.

4.  Finish organizing all my fabric and yarn.  This should be at the top of my list.

5.  Continue working on some quilts I am doing for charity.

6.  If time permits, cut out 2 baby quilts for friends having babies.  I know I am doing this quilt for  1 of them.  1 is having a girl and 1 is having a boy.

7.  Make bread for the week.  Maybe even make some tortillas.

8.  Work on altering  a dress for a friend.

So it. Will be a busy week.  It just depends how things go as to what I can get done.

What are you working on this week?

Christmas Rapping blog hop


Welcome to my day on the Christmas Rapping blog hop.  No, I am not here to rap Christmas songs, but to share a fun book with you. This book was co authored by Margaret Willingham of www.eobquiltdesign.com  and Nan Baker of www.purrfectspots.com.  I appreciate them letting me join in on their blog hop.  I also appreciate them providing a digital copy of the book for me to review and work from.

The RAPPing stands for Reverse Applique and Paper Piecing. The projects in this book use both of these methods, and they give you instructions on how to do them.  The reverse applique can be done either by hand or machine.  I have been doing by hand, as I can take it places and work on it. I do want to try the machine reverse applique.

This hop is sponsored by www.islandbatik.com, and www.aurifil.com, who so graciously provided the bloggers with supplies. They are greatly appreciated.

I am going to share just a few of my favorite projects from the book.  One of the things I like is that some of these projects can be made from fabrics for different seasons.   I want to do all of these projects.

I have been working on this project.  Due to crazy long hours I am not making much progress.   I do hope to have it done by the end of the hop to be able to share it with you.

These are some of the fabrics that I am using for my table runner

You can order a copy of the book here http://purrfectspots.com/purrfectquiltdesigns.html

Be sure to enter to win some fabric and thread.  2 winners will get 1 fat quarter bundle of 9 fabrics and 3 aurifil threads.  Open to U.S. residents only.


Thank you for joining me today. I will share my project as soon as it is finished.
