To-Do Tuesday Edition #8
Our eighth to-do edition – I find these so motivating! Here is last week’s list (which was a bit ambitious):
To-Do Tuesday for the week May 30th – June 5th:
- Figure out the blue/gray quilt center column issue
- Eagle hoodie memory pillow √ finished
- Start hand quilting ABC hanging √ it is started . . .
- Start machine quilting elephant quilt √ finished
- Find fabric for the Cubs quilt
- Another spiral quilt (Rainy Day fabric), confetti quilt, and disappearing 9-patch
- Start a new baby quilt . . . with a tutorial . . . here’s a sneak peak of the fabric we found in our stash that I forgot all about:
I give up on the blue/gray quilt for now. I don’t care about it. Well, I do . . . but will revisit it when we get back from South Dakota.
A good friend of mine just recently died. He was a veteran and had served in Vietnam. His longtime friend and companion requested that I make a memory pillow out of an Eagle hoodie that he often wore and loved. She especially wanted the pockets to put her hands in while holding the pillow. I’ll have to write a separate post for this . . . because he deserves it. ~smile~
Sue has the ABC wall hanging in a hoop. Just a few stitches have been made. It’s on its way!
Ellie the elephant is all finished. We were going to call our elephant Eli or Ellie, depending on the gender of the baby. But I think this quilt is Ellie and we’ll disregard the gender of our baby. You know I’ll share an update with you . . . but Mom and Dad have to see it first. At least you don’t have to wait for the actual baby! ~smile~
Still didn’t even look for the fabric for the Cubs quilt. We spent some time discussing how we can accomplish this quilt successfully. Also, we were able to decide on the pattern for John’s queen size blue quilt. I’m not sure of the actual name, but it is a version of a rail fence that creates a pinwheel. So, I’m cleverly calling it Pinwheel Rail Fence blue quilt and here is a sample that I found on Pinterest:
We’re even going to use similar colors with three shades of solid blue.
#6 and #7
What was I thinking? Six and seven items on a one week to-do list? Seriously?! Sue started cutting out the next baby quilt, and is even taking pictures for a tutorial.
To-Do Tuesday starting June 6th:
- Baby Fox wall hanging
- Sew tutorial baby quilt
Did I make this list too short?!! I don’t think so, with the end of school and a birthday! ~smile~
