Design Wall Monday - February 17, 2014 - and Weekly Goals

Currently on my design wall are the first 16 blocks I have made so far from a simple Me and My Sister pattern using a layer cake.  For this I am using a Scrumptious layer cake designed by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  I pulled this out mainly because of the springy fabrics, tired of the cold.  

I am going to put this project away for now to save for my next sewing group.  Since it is all cut out and easy to piece makes a good project where I am doing as much talking as sewing!!  I have definitely learned not to take anything complicated to a sewing group, just asking for me to cut or sew something wrong. 

As for my weekly goals I quilted 3 small customer quilts, topping my goal by one.  I also made two table runner tops and quilted them but I didn't get the panel quilt top made that I had intended on.   Even though I like to have goals to try and get a certain amount done during the week sometimes what I have planned out to do I am just no longer in the mood to tackle.  I guess as long as I am making progress on customer, craft show and personal projects it doesn't really matter what I end up doing.  

My goals for this week (will see if I stick to them or not) are

Quilt 2 customer quilts
Make a backing for the rail fence quilt
Quilt and bind two more table runners

Think that is all that I am going to plan for the week as I have a couple of appointments and a sewing group this week.

You're doing great with your weekly goals. I'm impressed. I'm lucky to get 5 blocks done on my most recent quilt done every week! Your quilt is gorgeous! I love the colors.
