Works in Progress: still more finishes

It’s been a good week.  Finishing my quilts for the Free Form Quilt Robin, the Be Free Bees has been near the top of my priority list and I’m happy to say I’m nearly there.

Here’s what my list looked like last week:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along Tutorial.  Finished!!  The last block of this QAL is done and that final tutorial will go up Friday.  I’m still leaving this item on The List because now I have to finish the quilt!
1a. Kentucky Chain for Friday.  Finished.  Tutorial is posted.
1b. West Virginia for next week: the last block!!  Finished.  Unlike past week, this is actually finished before Friday.  In other words, early.  What a concept.
2. Gathered clutches.  No progress.  Other priorities.
3.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote.  No progress.  Ditto.
4.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin additions.  Progress.  
4a. For Thea.  Finished.  This will be in the mail tomorrow.
4b.  For Jenny.  Progress.  Jenny’s quilt features several baskets.  I did some improvisational letters to read “A-Tisket A-Tasket.”  I am no longer on speaking terms with the letters “s”, lowercase “e”, and lowercase “a”.
5.  Clean the sewing room.  Some progress.  My goal this week is to get the floor clean enough actually vacuum in there.  Then I’ll call this “finished enough” and remove it from the list.
6.  Quilt for Brian.  No progress.  I had hoped to post details about this project this week, but it just didn’t happen.

Two tutorials that I would like to complete, but are on the back burner right now:  This is really just a place holder/reminder that I want to do this at some point.
7.  Equilateral triangle hexagon quilt block tutorial
8.  Kid’s play oven mitt tutorial

That leaves The List looking like this for next week:

1.  Road Trip Quilt Along: put together quilt top
2. Gathered clutches.
3.  Luna Bags: the Essential Tote
4.  Be Free Bees free form quilt robin addition for Jenny.
5.  Clean the sewing room.
6.  Quilt for Brian.

Two tutorials that I would like to complete, but are on the back burner right now:
7.  Equilateral triangle hexagon quilt block tutorial
8.  Kid’s play oven mitt tutorial

My list doesn’t have any fewer items, but with the completion of the blocks for the Road Trip Quilt Along and the Be Free Bees addition finish for Thea, it sure feels like it does.  After I finish my Road Trip quilt, I think I will bring back the Skill Builder Sampler I was working on once upon a time.  I have 6 blocks left to finish.

    You certainly get a lot done in a week. Enjoyed looking around your blog too. I like how you show the process as you go along. I don’t remember to take photos.
