I'm being productive by making lists. I'm joining Tuesday To Do. I am working on my Scrap Crystals quilt (a Bonnie Hunter pattern in her book More Adventures With Leaders & Enders.) I started this project back in 2015.
I remember making all of the little sub assemblies (four patches). Then I put them all in a shoebox and took them camping with us. I cut up an old picnic table cloth into large squares. I arranged the sub assemblies on them. The fabric pieces stuck to the table cloth like magic. It was easy to stack and fold in half and fit back into the shoebox. I could work on it in the RV while the others were still sleeping.
My only problem is that I couldn't find my book today. I know I have all of Bonnie's books. Where could it be? I just cleaned off my shelves and put away all the magazines that didn't have sticky notes marking projects I wanted to do someday. I kept busy sewing together the sub assembly units.
FINALLY, I looked in one more box. There was the marked up pattern. Sometimes I photo copy the pattern so that I can write all my notes in it and cross things off. I was sooooo happy to find it. Then I found the notes of the REST of the patterns in that same book that I want to make. I'm going to try to finish this one before tempting to start another. The sub assemblies went very quickly today. I'll be moving on to sashings in no time. Oh how I love organized progress!
This week I hope to accomplish the following things:
1. Make all of the Scrap Crystal star blocks (from above).
2. Clean the top of my desk by cutting the pile of scraps into 1.5" Accuquilt squares.
3. Pull light/bright blue solids for Full Stop asterisk block row.
4. Longarm quilt my Soul Searching quilt.
5. Put away green scraps and get out more light/bright blue scraps for Stay Centered quilt.
