Last week I focused on making a couple bags. This week I am focused on piecing. I started piecing flying geese for an SDSU quilt. I started the next step last night and I needed to trim them. Instead of going to bed, I pieced this Teen Spirit top together. The top went together very quickly. I just need to press it now. I'm not sure who will receive it, but it's my APQ quilt for March and I'm excited it got this far.

Saturday was National Quilting Day and I was lucky enough to get to go to Dad's house to drop off the kids for an overnight stay and found some time to quilt too. I made this t-shirt quilt for his wife and quilted it with a primary King Tut verigated thread.

Last was crazy busy. I started Cardiac Rehab, so I'm going to that 3 days a week and not getting a lunch hour. It sure cuts into my prepping time for sewing. Sara sent me these yellow and blue strips to use in an SDSU quilt I am working on for a friend. I had sent her some Tula strips and scraps for her quilt.
I'm really pleased with how the bags turned out and this week I hope to focus on piecing.

Tuesday night everyone was in bed by 8 pm. The kids were in bed at 7 due to standardized testing. When they go to bed and asleep by 7:30, I have extra sewing time. I sewed the bottom block for my dad's wife Ann's t-shirt quilt, then sewed the top together. It turned out pretty cool and I'll visit with her this weekend about backing fabric and then hopefully next weekend I can get it quilted for her.

Last week I laid out the Wildlife Teen Spirit quilt. I was thinking it was really long and narrow, so when I got home I checked the pattern and it needed to be 5x4, instead of 4x5. I laid it out again yesterday and now it's ready to sew together. This is my APQ challenge for March.

With a new week, also comes a new month and new goals. I worked on finishing up the blocks for Threadology block 6. I still have 5 and just cut out 7 & 8. I hope to keep this one moving forward.

Last night, in an attempt to meet my February goal for the APQ challenge, I pieced my block 4 of the Threadology quilt along. I was trying to get it done quickly and missed that I sewed one wrong, so I'll be fixing it tonight.
