From Procrastination to Completion

Reading the tabs titled “An Introduction”, “Background” and “About” will help you know what this blog is about. You can track my 11-point star quilting project progress from day one to today.

Date: Day 49 Friday September 16, 2011

Project Accomplishments: The Paper Solvy shipment came late today. I can print my patterns now.

Books:  Title: #8 — The New Year’s Quilt  —  Author: Jennifer Chaverini 2006 — # of Discs: 5 —  Listening Time: 6 hours 15 minutes

Book Comments: I prefer to listen to these books on CD while I am working on the project. By doing so, I can get a good estimate of the number of hours used in the process.

I really needed some stimulation and began and got through 4 of the 5 discs. I can not count this toward the 11-point star project.



Observations:  The delay in the Paper Solvy delivery gave me time to make two doll quilts and start a jean jacket.

Prayer: I’ve gotten along pretty good today without praying but, Lord, I just think it could be so much better if I said a few words to thank you for your presence, even when I don’t acknowledge you and thank you for all goodness and blessings You bestow on me. I do that now. Thank You.

Diversions: Today I finished the LAP doll quilt. It is a lone star design in pastel colors of yellow, aqua, white, lilac and a coordinating print. I added lots of machine quilting motifs. I made a doll pillow to match it. Then I took an orphan block that measures 18” square and added a header to the top and bottom and made a second doll quilt. This orphan was from a machine quilting class I took years ago. It is in bright oranges and greens on a muslin ground. It turned out pretty nice.
