To-Do Weekly #46 Update – March OMG
This is our 46th 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 Tuesday for the week February 19th through 25th:
- Begin quilting ABC wall hanging – √ done
- Sort/organize the Postcard fabrics – √ 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 has taken over the hand quilting of the ABC wall hanging. I challenged her to have it completed by the end of February, which wasn’t much time. I’m not so much anxious to get it listed on Etsy but rather to just put a period at the end of these wall hangings. Since I discovered it has been “hanging” around all the way back to April 2017, it needs to just be complete. It is coming along – she is using a pretty, orange thread.
The Postcard from Sweden quilt calls for 36 different fabrics. One of the colors only call for one triangle. I would imagine no one would notice if that color was omitted! We are enlarging the pattern for my queen size bed by using 6″ finished squares. That means we start with 7″ blocks, and cut them in half diagonally. Here is the first two squares that we put together just to see how they would look. They are part of row one.
Since it is a QAL, I am sure it is not too late if you’d like to join in. Sandra at MMM Quilts is hosting the QAL, which started on February 14th. Step one is to gather your fabrics and cut the HSTs. Step two which starts on the 28th is to begin sewing all of those HSTs. I guess we are slightly ahead in step two although we just finished cutting all the triangles this past weekend. Don’t these triangles look SO pretty?!
Thanks to Cindy at In A Stitch Quilting, I found inspiration on how to quilt our Fluffer Nutter table runner. Here’s a picture of the back of the runner – we can’t show you the front yet until the binding is complete. It is a mystery QAL after all, run by Cindy and Tracy at Its A T-Sweets Day. The deadline for having our project complete is March 31st. We are pretty darn confident that we will meet the deadline!
March OMG Goal:
Our Elm Street Quilts March OMG goal is to square up, layer, quilt and bind the Regatta quilt.
To-Do February 26th through March 4th:
- Continue appliquéing the jigsaw quilt pieces

We wish you a week filled with many blessings and good sewing/quilting vibes!
