To-Do #114 Weekly Progress Update
This is the 114th edition of our weekly to-do list. We usually share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts and at Becca’s What I Made Monday website on Mondays and on Christine’s Stitch All the Things and Dione’s Clever Chameleon website on Tuesdays. Check out what our friends are sharing!
To-Do for the week of June 10th through 16th:
- Start quilting Hidden Star as our June OMG – √ done
- Get Beothuk ready for the parade – √ done
- Layer the Harley t-shirt quilt – √ done
Initially, my plan was to start outlining each of the hidden stars before going any further with a quilting plan. But then I got busy Saturday morning and ended up with this. The star has been outlined with stitching in the ditch, surrounded by alternating direction loose loops. In the center block, I marked the center spot and will stitch a loopy floweresque shape. I think it may be possible to make the June deadline.
Just a few days ago, Sandra at mmm Quilts hosted a linky parade party for all the participants of the Beothuk quilt along. Our quilt top is all together but it has yet to be quilted. We joined in on the parade on Saturday and posted more details in Beothuk Linky Parade Update.
Sewing the seams and layering the Harley Davidson t-shirt quilt was harder than I expected. It is huge and heavy, measuring at 75″ by 91″. We used a light cotton batting between the interfacing-backed t-shirts and the marbled black backing fabric. The plan is to do a diagonal cross-hatch straight-line quilting pattern which is the only option I can think of for a quilt of this size.
To-Do for the week of June 17th through 23rd
