One thing I forgot to mention about my time at Quilt Festival: I bought a new sewing machine. My new Juki TL-2200QVP Mini arrived on Saturday, and after getting it set up, I took my time and sewed together my Meadow Mystery quilt blocks for November as the first real block sewing on my new machine!
The flying geese and square in a square blocks came together well, and it was exciting to use our Fabric A this month. I am definitely starting to get antsy to sew bigger units together. And I’ll have a lot more details on the Juki later, but it was great to sew with and I am excited to spend more time getting to know it.
Speaking of spending more time sewing… it’s time to take a look at how my list of WIPs is shaping up so I can figure out where I need to focus my attention next:
Finish Secret Sewing Project #2 Quilting a quilt top for a local client Baby Quilt Commission Chakra Mini Quilt Commission
- Downstream (finish in time to submit to QuiltCon) <– My next focus
- Alison Glass Charm Swaps – I am waiting on only a few more cut charms and then it will be up to me to sort and ship back out!
- Large Cocoa Leaf Medallion Quilt Commission (inspired by my original Cocoa Leaf Medallion quilt, but this one is slightly smaller, a bit different (more modern) and intended for people who own a Cocoa farm!)
Paintbrush Studio New Block Charity Quilt Banner Plus Bee Block Quilt Mini quilt for Patreon
- Mini quilt for Patreon
- Mini quilt for Kitty
- Mini mini for Patreon
Mini charm doll quilt
- Cloud9 New Block Charity quilt
- Quilting for local quilter — this might not happen. The quilter is going to try to do it herself and will contact me again in December if she does not get to it.

Wow that list is getting smaller pretty darn quickly.
I’m so impressed. If only any of my to do lists looked like that!
What is that fabric with the teals and pale purples? It is so pretty! I wish I could knock out a list like that…my quilting/sewing is becoming more accurate (thank goodness!) but I am still SO slow.
I echo Jennis question. What is that gorgeous pale purple/blue fabric!?!
You are making such great progress on your WIP list! Your mystery quilt blocks are turning out very nicely.
Doing quite lovely ♥
You are amazing, Yvonne! I’m so in awe of all that you do. Your to-do list is epic, yet you are making fantastic progress!! I’m really looking forward to hearing how you like the Juki, too. <3
That’s quite a list, and you’ve accomplished so much of it! Feels good to cross stuff off, doesn’t it!. Good luck with your priority finish in time to submit to Quilt Con.
I love your fabrics! I need to get in gear and get November done myself. 🙂
It looks like you’ve got a lot done Yvonne. There is a lot crossed off your list. I’m hoping to actually catch up on Meadow Mystery this month….we’ll see.
Congrats on the new machine! Keep us posted on your thoughts as you get to know it. I’ve heard good things about Jukis!
How can you forget a new sewing machine! I too will be interested to know what you think of it once it’s settled in.
Wow, that is a long list. I have faith in you and I know you can get it done. I love all your mini quilt projects and can’t wait to see the ones on your list when it is completed. I need to get going on my knitting list because most of them are holiday presents.
Your new sewing machine sounds so exciting. I’m looking forward to hearing how you like it while working on your project list. 🙂
Does the new Juki have a name?
I’m trying to play catch up on blog reading. And I quickly read….I forgot I bought a machine. I thought…how does one forget they bought a machine? And then I re-read and realized you said you forgot to mention that you bought a machine. ha ha ha I hope you are having fun.
