To-Do #52+12 – Weekly Update & July OMG
This is our 64th edition of our weekly to-do list. We share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts website on Mondays, and Christine’s Stitch All the Things website on Tuesdays. Check it out as other friends post their to-do lists as well! ~smile~
To-Do for the week June 25th through July 1st:
- Finish Tea Flowers for the mystery QAL and our June OMG – √ done
- Start quilting Plus Playtime – √ done
- Find fabrics for our no-stress sew along that started on July 1st – not done
Yippee! We finished up our second mystery QAL and shared all the details in our post last Friday. We chose the herringbone pattern, and also shared the inspirational tutorial last Saturday if you’d like to make one yourself.
Do you enjoy a parade for the 4th of July? My mom was a HUGE parade lover, but I never shared her passion for them until now. Sandra at mmm Quilts is hosting a quilt parade for all Plus Playtime this Friday. Towards that end, we need to get our quilt top finished and pretty to participate in the parade! Plus Playtime is all quilted now and only needs to have its binding tacked down. Plenty of time to get that accomplished by Friday, so I am sure we will make it. A picture will have to wait for parade day.
Our second sew along started on Monday. It isn’t too late to join in if you’d like. We are making Up From Here. We didn’t select our fabrics mostly because Sue returned from her separate trip to Virginia with walking pneumonia. And then our furnace died so no A/C and it’s hot and humid. We’ll get on picking our fabrics soon and share it just as soon as we do!
July OMG Goal:
Our Elm Street Quilts July OMG goal is to sew our Christmas in July blog hop item. We will be offering a free mug rug pattern as well during the week of July 23rd.
To-Do July 2nd through 8th:
- Complete the July step in Fireburst
- Select the fabrics for our sew along
- Determine the mug rug design for Christmas in July
