Goals being met-2

It is good to have the goal list and have something to work toward. I started quilting the Pineapple variation on my frame today (2/23). I was nervous about quilting it as I did not know what I wanted to do. Once I started, it is amazing how easy to figure out it was. This quilt is from the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine from Oct 2008. It was a great pattern and challenging too.
I sent out 4 boxes of strips and scraps to various people in HS, and I'm already adding to my scrap bins with border pieces that I cut recently. Never ending...I wouldn't want it any other way.
I finished the string quilt top I was working on and made the backing, batting, and cut out the pillowcase-it is going to be a QOV quilt. I also finished the logcabin quilt top and got the backing partly made. This will be a donation locally. I'm using a thicker decorator fabric for the backing, as well as some flannel pieces. I thought a warm cuddly quilt would be nice.
So, to redo my list:
  1. Finish the quilts I want to give to Hospice House.
  2. Make a work tote bag.
  3. Quilts to quilt: Pineapple variation-on the frame now; Gypsy Star, Strip Twist, Heart strings one for QOV, Log cabin.
  4. Continue the job of cleaning and reorganizing my sewing spaces.

Lots to do! Happy Quilting Everyone!
