I feel so dumb

OMG!!!! and I don't mean One Monthly Goal.  I have spent the last 3, yes three, hours trying to figure out how to get the tabs at the top of this page.  And with persistence and determination I finally did it.

Now I just have to get the UFO/WIP list completed.

OMG is No. 4

I rolled the dice to find out what my OMG would be.  Number 4!

This is my process most of the time.  The top 6 UFOs are stored in these tubs.

And the coordinating instructions are stored on the shelf below.

Number 4 is the Christmas quilt.

My goal is to get the sashing and borders on.  This should be a doable goal while still spending time with my son and granddaughter before they move.

This pattern is Merry Meets Modern by Lavender Lime.  It was supposed to be a block of the month with a coworker and friend.  The coworker didn't want to do the applique blocks and the friend didn't even get started.  Oh well, their loss.

Linking up with OMG at Elm Street Quilts

Wishing you more quilting time than I will have.

Didn't make it - OMG

I joined OMG this month for the first time.  A few days later I found out that Lump and her dad, after living with us since she was 3, are moving 13 hours away to Kansas.  So I decided spending time with them until they go was more important than meeting the goal this month.

I did get some of the blocks completed.  They are really fun blocks to make.  And a nice size at 15".  I am making the HST on my old faithful 40 year old Kenmore (my workhorse named Matilda) and all of the other piecing is being done on my newly purchased Featherweight named Gladys.

I will continue working on it this week while Lump spends the week with her mamma while her daddy is in Kansas interviewing for jobs.  It's also a work at home week.

Also, while helping me "work at home" Lump found a tub of old scraps and started laying them out on the floor and clipping them together with wonder clips. I told her she could put them on the design wall and this is what she came up with.

Some of this fabric wasn't fit for quilting but I let her have her fun.  At the end of the week I told her that I would try to get them sewn together while she was spending the weekend with her mother.  I had to replace the "not for quilting" fabric.  I don't think it turned out too bad.  In her eyes it is exactly as she had it on the wall and she loves it.

I pin basted, which I don't usually do.  I quilted a meander with a heart around each pin.

I labeled it.

And here she is with her quilt.

I'm gonna miss her.  And her daddy too.

Wishing you more quilting time than I will have.
