Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, March 26, 2012
I loaded the Blue Urban Cabin on the Princess.  Anita's Arrowhead in hanging on the wall.   Dark mauve borders were added and the backing is hanging with it. 

I usually hang my tops with their backings before quilting.  Why?  Umm--once in a while I measure wrong (I've always said I'm bad with numbers) and its "seeing is believing".  If my backing is a bit bigger than the top--I'm OK.   How much bigger is enough??--I use 10% as a guideline. 

Goals for this week--

  1. Quilt Blue Urban Cabin
  2. Load another top
  3. Sew more countries on Plaid 4 Patch
  4. Make two bindings

Yes, that should keep me busy.  

Do you have your week planned??

I do have my week planned...luckily I've accomplished just about everything that was on my list this month so it won't be too busy.

I've only run into trouble with a backing being too small when someone else has sent it and I assumed it was the right size. Luckily I was able to find instructions online for adding more backing while the quilt is still on the longarm.

I love your Anita's Arrowhead! I have noticed a few bloggers with weekly goals and need something to keep my mind from wondering off to start a new one. Thanks for your inspirations .... I have been a fan for a while now.

Your urban country quilt top is lovely. Can't wait to see it all quilted up! Great idea with the top/backing hanging. I'm a visual girl too.
