To-Do #47 Weekly Update
This is our 47th edition of our weekly to-do list. I share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts website on Monday, and Tuesday’s linky party can be found on Christine’s Stitch All the Things website. ~smile~
To-Do for the week February 26th through March 4th:
- Continue appliquéing the jigsaw quilt pieces – √ done
- Start to sew the HSTs for Postcard – √ done
- Finish quilting the ABC wall hanging – √ done
I seemed to have been a bit easy on us last week! I am happy with what we accomplished this week though. ~smile~
Sue had to attend class Tuesday night, so I was on my own to entertain myself. Of course, that meant I headed right into the sewing room as soon as I got home from work. Hmm, dinner? I put a pot pie into the oven, and that gave me a good hour of mindless sewing. I turned on King of Queens on TV and listened to the antics of Doug and Carry while I did some buttonholing. We never took time to count how many little pieces there are to this jigsaw baby quilt, and I do not think I need to know. But there are a lot, suffice it to say that. I am working in row 4 now, and I sewed row 1 together for kicks and giggles.
It needs a good pressing but you can now see the overall design coming together.
HSTs for Postcard are starting to be sewn. I had to get the first two rows together so that we could verify that the width would be okay. Sixteen blocks needed and that is just perfect. There are a LOT of HSTs to be trimmed. Ugg.
Sue finished quilting this the first night of this to-do list, and I’ve already shared a post about it last Friday. I don’t want to mention it ad nauseam, so that’s all I’ll say about it. Woohoo – not only finished but off the design wall just in time for Postcard. It only took 11 months to complete it. Yippee skip scam.
We layered up the Regatta quilt this weekend and I did a bit of wavy stitching on the colored rows. I may do something else on the white rows – I haven’t decided yet.
March OMG Goal:
Our Elm Street Quilts March OMG goal is to square up, layer, quilt and bind the Regatta quilt. The first three items have been done or are underway!
To-Do March 5th through 11th:
- Continue working on Postcard
- Continue buttonholing Jigsaw
- Take rough measurements of the t-shirts
- Sew the Bubbles rows together, and add a border
- Piece together some doll-size quilts
We wish you a week filled with many blessings and good sewing/quilting vibes!
