Lists Help!

I have a quilting to do list, with about 4 MUSTS!!  This one is first up, and then you'll see others soon.

These embroidered squares belong to my "yo-yo" friend from church, Leanna. They needed to be squared up, but since they were printed on the fabric, it was a challenge...I did my best.  Finally, "Pokey" went to work to get them sewn into a quilt top!

 starched, ironed and squared

 strips cut and added

 sewn into columns, then rows
 an extra square quartered to be cornerstones. 
I think I'll add one more small border so they will float ~

Next up, I need to wrangle with the quilt frame on a few projects, here's hoping it will be cooperative ~


 Oh, and here's the cakestand blocks for this week. 
 I'm up to 19 completed, big grins!

Progress--Summer Style ~

Temecula Quilt Company's July project was these little "Cakestand" blocks, 


I am sure you have seen them around the quilty blog community. 


Can you say, "tiny"? My first one had the boys in the house laughing at me, how can anyone cover up with a quilt of those?

 Silly boys! But, I did decide to enlarge the pattern, 

 and now, there are 31 larger blocks in various stages of progress. There are 8 small ones, too  :-}

Here are 2 blocks to send to Calgary, Canada, via my friend Gail.

Last, here is the amount done in the sewing room. 

 Not much it seems, since there is a good amount of sorting happening too.

  That's why I called it "summer progress," lol!

I am hoping posting the progress will help me with accountability....

So, here's hoping another post happens before 2 weeks pass again. I'm trying to sew a bit every day, how about you ? 

Happy Quilting!
