Mid-week Progress report.

 Well, my well laid plan from Monday didn't survive. But I have a good reason for it, really I do. It's this quilt, pictured to the right here. It's my Lazy Sunday quilt, Bonnie Hunter's mystery from Quiltmaker magazine last summer. It came off the machine on Monday, and got really pushy. You know how these things can get, demanding to get their bindings made and put on right away, rather than get put aside and forgotten. I decided to listen to it, and do what it wanted, because otherwise it would have gotten put aside and forgotten. It has 2 1/2 sides finished now, but my shoulders started to give out on me, so I'll finish it tomorrow.
My Three of a Kind, from Judy Martin's book Scraps has grown by one block since Monday. It now counts as half done, before doing the borders, with 18 out of 36 blocks done. It is going to get set aside, for now, while I concentrate on finishing my January UFO. It's coming up to the end of the month, so it's time to move it to priority status. It would be cool to be able to join some of the Friday finish parties with a fully finished quilt, and a finished flimsy. Right now, I'm going to link up to a Canadian group, which I found through someone else's blog a couple of weeks ago, called The Needle and Thread Network. It's been fun reading though some Canadian blogs today.


  1. Three of a kind is very graphic! :) Lots of colour options.

  2. So lovely!
    Greetings from Finland!
    Hugs, Ulla

  3. Fun to check the links of other Canadians...some very pretty work to see!

  4. I absolutely believe you sometimes have to give way to the pushy project. Heck, I lived that ideal for the last couple of weeks!! Just think, you'll have a finish *and* a couple more blocks done! GREAT progress!! :)

  5. That link to the Canadian network is awesome!
    I could spend a couple of days there :0
    I will link up if I remember

  6. The pushy quilt gets the binding - which of course explains that quilts that don't get finished are not pushy enough, it is not the quilter's fault. ;-)
    Love your Three of a Kind!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
