To-Do Tuesday Linky #7 & Weekly Progress Update
This is the 128th edition of the weekly to-do list and the seventh post as a linky party here on our website. Thank everyone who joined us last week.
To-Do for the week of September 17th through 23rd:
- Finish quilting Rainbow Ripples – √ done
- Start quilting the pumpkin quilt – √ done
- Finish the Fizzy block – nope
The Rainbow Ripples quilt top is all quilted and I have started sewing down the binding. It is slow going as I had a headache all weekend and did no sewing. I share this picture last Friday and I truly thought this was an easy wrap but it didn’t quite happen. There’s still one more weekend this month and it seems there are quite a few things that need to get finished! Maybe!
Somehow, some other quilting happened before the crappy weather and weather-induced-headache set in (I’m blaming the weather whether it’s true or not). I want to thank Vicki from Vick’s Crafts and Quilting for inspiring this quilting design. Thanks to the fabulous photos she shared on how she quilted this design. Well enough for me to replicate it anyway, first with pen and paper and then with thread. As I got into the rhythm of this design I found I could plan ahead to cover the area better.
I sewed the inner, smaller leaf first and then the bigger, outer leaf. Depending on which side I wanted to end up on would dictate how I started the outer leaf so that I could easily move to a different area with a loop. I recall back in the day that I enjoyed drawing leaves, so this is a really fun design for me to replicate. It makes me feel confident in FMQ it as I’m comfortable drawing it.
We did not start the Fizzy blocks for our beehive queen again this weekend. I’m off tomorrow (Wednesday) so perhaps work will begin. I know Kathy is patiently waiting for her blocks and I hate to disappoint.
