4X7 Challenge - Week 4 (The final link-up!)

Well, the month of the Dark Lord is drawing to a close, as is the 4X7 Challenge. Here's my break down for Week 4!
Berry Barn Designs

Thanks to some super solo parenting by Himself, I got a tonne of quality sewing time. I decided to stop waffling about the size of the quilt and just sew it together!
 My ironing board has never looked so good!

Woo hoo! Last two rows sewn! The top of the I Spy Polaroid quilt is done!

As if that wasn't enough, I completed my OMG for February, repairing J-Boy's Good Old Hockey Game quilt.

I spent some quality studio time tagging and putting away fabric from my trip, as well as building a scrap pack for the Stash Love giveaway!
I have some ideas floating around in my head for the backing of DT's Polaroid I Spy quilt. I'm so energized by this project that I couldn't resist working on it!

Wednesday & Thursday
No actual, physical sewing done. But I spend a tonne of time working on membership cards for my lovely little guild, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild. And messaging back and forth with three of my quilty pals with regards to a VERY exciting quilting opportunity. More on that another day! 

Check out my blog post from Friday! Gotta love a flimsy finish!

No trouble getting some sewing in today - MMQG February Sew In! I'll freely admit that I didn't try as hard as I might have to get sewing later in the week, knowing that I would have the entire day on Saturday.  I worked away on the improv letters and a little surprise for the back of the I Spy Polaroid quilt. Don't worry... you'll see it soon!

I'm linking up with Berry Barn Designs for Week 4 of the 4X7 Challenge. Shockingly, I'm a little sad to see the Month of The Dark Lord draw to a close. I didn't have firm goals for this month. I just wanted to sew more. And I've definitely done a lot of sewing in February... maybe I'll set a little challenge of my own to keep the momentum going!


  1. Do I see a camera in the making for the back?

  2. You've got a lot done this month. Love that Polaroid quilt!

  3. Love how you documented each day of the week! I wish I had done that. I love the poloroid quilt, so far. Can you direct me to the pattern? I saw one at our guild with small polaroids, I wonder if this is the same? I loved the size of hers! Great projects! I would love to know more about the Stash Love giveaway.

  4. It sounds like you have many great things in the works... collaboration with friends and the back of the quilt are things I am definitely looking forward to getting to see or learn about soon. And yay for the sew in day. :)

  5. Successful week. All the sewing you did on Saturday more than made up for the other days. It's been a great month.

  6. THat polaroid quilt has some fantastic colors!! DId you paper piece it?

  7. I was intrigued by your idea to add the improv piecing to the Polaroid quilt... wow, did it turn out awesome! Can I ask what an "OMG" project is? Thansk for joining in the challenge - you had a strong finish to the month : )
