To-Do #52+18 Weekly Update
This is our 70th 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 August 6th through 12th:
- Finish sewing Luke’s Plus Playtime – √ done
- Determine the layout for Pixel Heart – √ done
The second Plus Playtime for Luke is all together. Since it is a Christmas present, it is not going to be quilted now – plenty of time for that in the upcoming weeks.
A while ago a friend of ours asked us to make a quilt for a little girl who lost her mother. She gave us two boxes of the mother’s clothes, which we washed, dried and started sorting through. None of them were cotton, so we had to use the June Tailor interfacing like we used on Pat’s t-shirt quilt. Sue found a heart pattern to use and I’ll share all the details when the project is complete. Here is the initial layout:
For our Elm Street Quilts’ August OMG we are going to quilt and bind Garden Gate. This will also complete a UFO from last October. I bit the bullet and started FMQing the floppy feathers. It’s about half finished and I’m not bald yet . . .
I have to thank Beth at Cooking Up Quilts for sharing her tutorial on her blog and then mentioning it again just recently. It certainly inspired me very much!
To-Do August 13th through 19th:
- Start sewing the Pixel Heart quilt
- Sew the August Fireburst blocks
- Rehearsal dinner and William & Nicole’s wedding!
- Dominic’s sibling reveal party – care to guess boy or girl?!
