Last Tuesday I wrote that my sewing room, and cutting table especially, needed some cleaning up, and I managed to finally (make myself) do just that on Sunday afternoon.
That felt good! There are piles of blocks to be sewn next to the sewing machine, but at least they are now organized and ready, and the leftover bits and pieces are put back where they belong.
In other To-Dos for the week, I also finished up my October Tiny Tuesday blocks.
Unfortunately, some of the sashings have to be redone in order to turn a couple blocks on point since I changed my mind about the final layout. But that's an easy thing to do!
I also got Almost Amish layered and spray basted.
I needed to piece together some batting scraps for this, and used a combination of fusible batting tape and then some fusible interfacing after I ran out of the tape. It worked great, too! Here's a helpful tutorial from Debbie at A Quilter's Table for using the interfacing when piecing batting.
Quilting was started, too!
My hand-pieced pumpkin project was aldo finished last week. You can see more details about it in this post.
This week's list:
1. Finish Almost Amish - quilting and binding.
2. Continue working on the layout for the Tiny Tuesday quilt.
3. Make a little progress on an older Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt project that needs to be "re-imagined!"
4. Finish my book club book for the discussion next Monday afternoon. This month's choice has been a bit of a challenge for me - The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life, by David Brooks. I'm more of a murder mystery or historical fiction reader, so when something out of my comfort reading zone is chosen by one of our book club members, I have to push myself a little harder. That's okay, though - it's good for my brain - and I know we'll have an interesting discussion!
