- Start quilting our October OMG – √ done
- Continue sewing leaves for Baby Girl’s quilt – √ done
- Check Fireburst blocks – √ done
Well, a picture was shared during the week of the quilting that has commenced on our October OMG project. This “S” shaped ladder stitch is kind of fun to do. Although I find that if I do too many without a short break, I forget how to make the “S” shape! I have to pause, and draw the shape with my finger. Duh! The leaves are outlined with stitch in the ditch but they need another filler yet to be determined. Good ‘ole stippling won out because I didn’t want to stress over it.
This is a leaves, leaves, leaves kind of week. Y’all know what they look like so I’m not going to bore you with a picture of some more tiny leaves. Definitely more leaves are needed!
Fireburst has its center block complete now! We finished it up on Sunday afternoon and put it on the design wall. That will allow me to stitch the blocks and rows together at my leisure. To finish it up we need to layer it and then decide how to quilt it. That decision has to be made before the end of the calendar year. Plenty of time, right?! Here is how it looks right now:
We did pick our Elm Street Quilts’ October OMG goal. We posted about it last week, in this Our October 2018 OMG Goal and we selected the Las Vegas Leaves to complete.
To-Do October 22nd through 28th:
- Add the binding to LV Leaves so it can be completed this week
- Sew more leaves for Baby Girl’s quilt
- Make some string blocks for hurricane relief drive
