34.6 March A Long 2014 – Week 2 Report inMarch 16, 2014
It’s after the second full week of March, and I wanted everyone to have a chance to check in for their March-A-Long progress.
March-A-Long (#marchalong on twitter) is a commitment & encouragement to sew or make some progress towards a quilting goal for 15 minutes a day during the month of March.
Great job to everyone sew far in getting their quilting goals to build discipline during the entire month of March. It’s all for fun and/or progress and/or skill building!
Love to hear what you’re all up to. What am I up to??
I missed the first Monday of the week as I got in 14,000 steps by going on two very long walks during that day since the weather was so nice.
Then on Tuesday, I cut scraps, but also Angela Walters visited my guild for a talk since she’s pretty local.
Boy is she funny! Her quilting is amazing. Loved to hear about her husband’s grandpa and how she thought she was the best quilter ever and her adventures in getting the long arm.
Here is one of her quilts! She said we could take pictures. But only heavily photoshop ones of her (joking, but funny).
Her daughter was there helping to hold the quilts. Our guild got a reminder about how heavy the quilts were and to rotate out help for holding quilts and here is this little 8 year old just helping out as many times as she could! How sweet! And Angela herself held several of them as well.
The main majority of the week I was finding any excuse to get back to Hulu to catch up with the soap opera to cut scraps. I have lots of little baby pieces and started a string bag.
I am still working on my leaders & enders quilt seen below in blue & white.
I have been showing all the pretty colors on my ‘Crazy Daisies’. Flowers for National Quilting Day held yesterday (third Saturday of March).
I recap with my sergeant & my marching ants in the video below.
For those of you who like the voice & the ants.
I share pictures of my scraps, the technique I use for the 1/2 square triangles for this quilt, and a lighting solution from a fishing store.
