HQAL AND RSC 2020.....

 Hi everyone...I've been kind of slack about blogging the last couple of weeks...haven't had much to say or show you.  Working on the same things...which gets boring after a while.  What have I NOT been working on????  The Bee Quilt for one....way toooo HOT to have a quilt laying on my I'll be showing you what I HAVEN'T got done...

 I didn't get any of the bee hives done...the quilt is laying on my cutting table.  I think this will be a winter project.  On a good note...I did get the last of my purple crazy quilt blocks embellished.  So I'm all caught up for August, which is's a couple blocks I've finished...

Today the plan is to cut some rain drop fabric for borders for my umbrella quilt.  First I have to lay it out and see how I want it organized...I have a picture of it in my mind...we'll see how that comes out.

I think I'll throw in a few blocks of the rain drip fabric with umbrella's on it.  I'll have to see how that know when you get picture of what you want a quilt to look like?  That's what I'm thinking about now...but haven't got it all worked out yet.  Well, that's it for now..have an awesome....

3. Got the Valentine quilt on the cutting table and's awaiting it's turn on the hoop to be tied.


4. Didn't get the raindrop fabric cut...I had company all my sewing schedule got  all messed up...I had 5 teenagers visiting this past week...I wouldn't recommend that to the time they all left I was ready to pull out my hair!!!   So there wasn't too much sewing done this week.  I did get a few more umbrella's done.

Sharon over at Pintangle hosts TAST every's a chance to learn new embroidery stitches......this week it's the Lock Stitch.  Here's's a bit wonky, but I like it.

I have lots of them!!  I've been trying to get some of them done this year.  So far I've got 5 of them done...
4th of July Quilt, ABC Quilt, Easter Quilt, Happy Scrappy Quilt, and Spring Quilt.  The thing that helped me get these done is a UFO Challenge...I was blog hopping one day and ran across Dreamworthy Quilts...Ann has a UFO challenge going on over at her place.....the Number Draw UFO Challenge....want to know more about this...just click on the link. 
My Number Draw for July is Zoe's Quilt....
sorry to say I didn't get it done.  It was so blasted hot in July...high 80's and 90's with high humidity...toooo hot to have a quilt laying on my lap.  But I'm still plugging away at it...hoping to get it tied at least in the next couple days...the binding may have to wait...we'll see.

The August number for the UFO challenge is number 7 on my list...but I've already done number 7...the Easter Quilt
So I've bumped another quilt up to # UFO for August is the Valentine Quilt
the top is done, just needs sandwiched, tied and binding put on.  This is another small it shouldn't take too long to finish....just have to get in the mood to drag out the cutting table and walk around it a gazzillion times....I may also put the Boo Quilt together while I have the cutting table out.  It's also a small quilt.
Hope everyone has an awesome.....

To-Do Tuesday
July 28th to August 3rd
1. Finish Zoe's Quilt (one way or another...this will be done!)
2. Do more Umbrella Blocks
3. Cut binding for Zoe's Quilt
4. Pick out a project for August One Monthly Goal

1. Well, I guess 2 out of 4 is good....kind of.  It's going to be cool here in Northeastern Indiana the next 4 days...then back to hoping I can get Zoe's quilt done...I haven't got the binding fabric picked out yet...I'm thinking about using black...what do think about black binding?  Let me know.

I was going to work on it yesterday...but got sidetracked by my son...he's putting the new linoleum down in the hallway, which needed a good cleaning before laying the I spent the better part of the day doing that.  Thus Zoe's quilt didn't get worked on.  

2. I did get some more Umbrella blocks done and my fabric I'm using for the borders came yesterday...
The raindrop fabric is a little bluer...the picture is kind of dull looking....this will be the borders for the umbrella's. 

3. I did pick out my OMG project for's my Valentine Quilt...the top is done, just needs sandwiched, tied and binding put on.  So I'll be working on that for August.
Since this is a small quilt..if time allows I may also get the Boo quilt done...we'll see..
I also got started on my RSC 2020 Crazy Quilt the blocks all done and have started embellishing them....
