One Thing, One Week Challenge :: Link up 8

Here we go!  Time to show off your finished goal!  I’m looking forward to seeing all that you accomplished.

Today we link up and show off what we got done. If you haven’t already, go post about it on your blog (or flickr) and come back to link up with your permalink here –  (please only add your link if you added your goal to the comments last week)

Those of that met your goal, will be entered to win the Breakfast at Tiffany’s charm pack!

I’ll announce the winner tomorrow, and the linky will be open for just 24 hours. Don’t forget to visit the links and cheer each other on!


These are the two things I sewed this week!  My zip pouch for all things hexie, and an Ipad case.  This case is the first of a couple, I think.  I like it, but I need to work on the inner structure more so that I can be completely happy with it!

I used a 12″ zipper, and added a gusset so that the bag is nice a roomy.  Inside, a handy light, the cut pieces waiting to be stitched and some completed hexies.  The smaller pouch is the one I keep handy in my purse for car trips, or lazy afternoons by the kiddie pool, with prepped pieces ready to go.

The gusset detail.

Alright – I’m off to check out your finishes!  I hope you have a great day –

    I met my challenge and reached my goal as much as was possible under the circumstances. At the Quilt and Craft Fair I test-drove as many sewing machines designed for quilters as I could: 3 x Bernina, 1 x Janome, 2 x Pfaff, 1 x Elna, 2 x Husqvarna and 1 x Singer, a total of ten machines. The following day I visited my local Janome dealer and called a machine repairman for an honest, non-biased opinion. I decided which machine to buy. But yesterday my DD gave birth to our second grandchild (two weeks early) and I am babysitting our 16mo grandson – I can’t buy a machine with him in tow! I need time to talk!

    Congratulations on finishing your two bags! I really should make a zip pouch for my epp hex and diamond stuff… right now they’re in a tiny shopping bag I got from a cute clothes store. :D

    Well done on getting your pouches finished! I managed to finish my cross stitch, and even turned it into a little bag.

    I did not get my bee blocks done. It was kind of silly of me to even put that in the challenge as finishing my Robert Kaufman No Prints Allowed challenge quilt was more urgent – deadline Wed, June 29. I did finish the challenge quilt :)

    Maybe this week will be bee block week.

  7. I met each of my goals this week, which is a first! Thank you for hosting this challenge, it really helped me prioritize :)

  8. […] Amy’s One Week, One Challenge link up from last week? I was able to meet my challenge, which was piecing the Hugs and Kisses quilt […]

    Oh, Amy Amy Amy! You need to do this every week. It kept me motivated to finish! And I did! Now, I need another challenge so I can finish something else!

    Whew! I finished my challenge, nothing like a deadline to make me finish something up!

    Thanks for the challenge!

    Really nice work, Amy. Well I finished piecing the top, hopefully I can get it all hand quilted before the fair! Thanks for the encouragement.

    Thanks once more for hosting the 8th challenge! It always gives me the final drive or kick to make things happen! Works like a charm… every time… Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

    I don’t have a blog, but I’d love to join this challenge. I’m waiting for my new longarm to arrive so this week I like to make two backs – one is for Modern Affair by Pat Bravo using fabrics from that line and the other backing is for a LeMoyne Star sampler that I hand-pieced over the course of a couple of years. I can’t wait to put them on the machine. The LeMoyne Star is on my flickr page – TracyJB1122. I’ll post the Modern Affair too so you can see it.

    Thanks for hosting this, Amy! I not only met my challenge, I bound two more quilts! And your zipper pouches are lovely – good work!!

    Beautiful pouches. I managed to finish the borders on the coin side of the quilt on Saturday. Am now learning to applique for the 9 patch side. This was a great way to stay motivated.

    Cheers, K

    Rats. I finished mine but totally forgot about the linky (and haven’t gotten to post yet). Oops. :P

    I didn’t do so well this week. I did manage to trim the batting and back to size and make the binding. Other than that, I haven’t touched my quilt. Finishing it will be my goal for this next week.
