Weekend Goals

Besides the long list of house cleaning chores and the outdoor fall-cleanup chores, I have three quilty goals for this weekend.

The first goal is a completed Avignon Picnic quilt top.

090713   (1024x710)The blocks are sewn and laid out, so all that needs to be done is to sew them together.   Since this is a borderless quilt, once the blocks are sewn together this goal is complete.

Last week Tuesday I took my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll to a very talented local longarm quilter and it was ready for pick up on Saturday.

090713A (1024x765)She did a wonderful job with a free-form all-over design of feathers, leaves and flowers.

090713B  (1024x768)

090713C (1024x766)

So the second goal is to get the binding on the front.  I wonder how long it will take me to hand sew the binding on the back?  It would be great to have it done in time for Show and Tell at quilt guild next Saturday.

Goal three is to clear out the scrap bin on my cutting table.

090713D  (960x1024)It is amazing how one day it can be under control and the next day it is spilling over the sides.  It is time to tame this beast.

If I don’t become distracted, I think that all three goals can be achieved by Sunday night.  So, what are your weekend sewing plans?
