March-A-Long Week 2

Week Two of March-A-Long is finished. Here is how my week went:

  • Sunday – I spent a couple of hours paper piecing curved flying geese for the Judy Niemeyer tree skirt. It was fun to get back to this. I have two more geese on each section to do now.
  • Monday – I spent the day prepping blocks for the church quilt to be hand pieced by members of our church’s MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) program during Tuesday’s meeting.
  • Tuesday – I started the day with the aforementioned MOPS ladies. Careful Carolyn and I walked them through the block assembly step by step. Here’s what the finished product should look like (colors vary on the blocks):



  • Wednesday – I caught up on quilty blog reading. We spent nearly 24 hours without power from about 1:30 Tuesday afternoon through 12:30 Wednesday afternoon. The rest of Wednesday was spent warming up and catching up. I also did a little hand quilting in the evening.
  • Thursday – Hand quilting in the evening is about the extent of my quilting for the day.
  • Friday – Another day when only a little hand quilting (and a little magazine inspection) were the extent of my quilting enjoyment.
  • Saturday – Yes, it was Quilting Day but, other than watching a Craftsy lesson while I rode the recumbent cycle, no quilting happened here. We also got the pleasure of the arrival of the kids to celebrate our youngest daughter’s birthday.
