To-Do #121 Weekly Progress Update
This is the 121st 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 July 29th through August 4th:
- Get the Cind-erella quilt top pieced together – √ done
- Select the llama fabrics – √ ready to be sewn
- Additional applique on Quiet Time – √ done
- Deliver the table runner and Harley t-shirt quilt – √ done
We just barely made this our August OMG project, but I was antsy to get going on it. Sew, this may have happened on Monday after work. A little pinning to make sure those HSTs fit together perfectly.
And then we framed the HST areas so that they would match the length of the carriage and appliqué area. Next, we’ll add the borders and look the perfect backing so I can get going on the quilting!
We played along with Sandra and her Beothuk QAL back in June, and we won some patterns from Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. One of the patterns we chose is the Alpaca Anyone? Here are some of the fabrics Sue has pulled for this sweet hanging. Wendy at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life also won the same pattern and shared her version named Lucille. Being made for a sweet yet-to-be-born baby girl, Lovey is the name of our llama. Baby girl is due in October, and we’ll add her name lengthwise on the side of Lovely. We know her name will start with an “F” as her brothers are Forrest, Franklin, and Fox – care to make a guess?
Thanks for the sweet inspiration, Wendy and Lorna!
Up next, the Quiet Time book has been silently worked on in spurts. 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there really do add up! Several pages were appliquéd this week so we’ll advance them back to the staging area for next steps. Those include buttons, zippers, and velcro for some ice cream cone scoops.
The delivery of both the Harley t-shirt quilt and Dar’s table runner were made this past week. Unbeknownst to us, it was Dar’s birthday just the day before we delivered it. That makes for a nice day-late birthday gift. And Tim posed with his Harley Davidson t-shirt quilt along with the family dog. I adore seeing the dog toys sprinkled about! Deena also emailed us another picture of the quilt on a pretty castiron bed. Tim said he loved the quilt and once he realized they were HIS t-shirts he was really excited. Yay!
Our August OMG (one monthly goal) is to complete the Cind-erella quilt top for Addison. We linked this goal on Patty’s Elm Street Quilts website and linky party. After that, if there is time, we’ll also layer, quilt, and bind it. I suspect that is a definite happening.
To-Do for the week of August 5th through 11th
- Find the backing fabric and add borders to Cind-erella
- Find the fabrics for the beehive block
- Complete the August monthly color block (We will be two-thirds complete for the year)
