goals / quilting / weekly roundup

looking back, moving forward

I was pretty productive last week

  • Got the full scale drawing for my bicycle quilt done and made some progress on the IMG_4282actual quilt.  Not entirely sure how happy I am with the way this quilt is turning out.  I am learning with each quilt I make in this new style.  The qualities of each line (how thick/thin, start/stop point, angle, solid or outline etc) as well as where I place the color plays a critical role in the success or failure of the overall design and so I think it’s important to see each one through to the end.
  • Dyed 5 yards of black fabric
  • Sewed the sleeve on the Cottage Door quilt
  • Organized and cataloged all my full sized quilt drawings and moved them into storage.
  • Wrote a blog post about getting your work out there and reviewed a couple of books and products.  And I drafted two more posts three antidotes to the inner critic that you’ll see here on my blog this Thursday and one on The artist sketchbooks.
  • I only got a chance to watch one On1 training video so I will endeavor to do more of those this week.

On my list of intentions this week:

I’m happy to say that the final layout of my new book is due this week for final editing (YAY!) so I willindex have to devote a good amount of time to doing a final read through. Once the files arrive from C&T this will have to be my top priority for the week.

Finish the Bicycle quilt.

Work on some sketches for my next piece in the black and white series.  I originally thought it might have something to do with a teapot and a stack of books but now I am leaning towards something with boats…

 

Organize my quilts and supplies for a trunk show that I will be doing this week at the Rhododendron Needlers Quilters Guild in Walpole MA

Continue research for my Deeds not Words quilt celebrating Elizabeth Cady Stanton. I have done some reading and made a few pages of notes and sketches.  I have a few vague ideas percolating but so far nothing has taken hold.  Fortunately the deadline for this is not until February 2019 so I have some time.  I also know that if I push it to the back burner that I will end up finding myself scrambling come January and I really want to give this piece the attention and thought that it deserves.

Watch at least 3 ON1 video lessons.

I hope these weekly roundup/intention posts aren’t getting boring for you!  I am finding that I like keeping track of what I’ve accomplished and what I am working towards on a weekly basis.  It’s helps narrow my focus and keeps me from getting distracted.  Give it a try and see how it works for you.  If you do, feel free to post a link to your weekly roundup post in the comments so that I and other readers can check it out.
