To-Do Tuesday for the week November 27th through December 3rd:
- Evening Star flimsy all complete with borders – √ done
- Continue to appliqué blocks for January table runner – √ done
- Start appliqué on the pillow sham nautical images – √ done
I know I already shared a post about this so I could post a finish for November OMG, but the Evening Star quilt top is complete. YAHOO! It really was an easy quilt to put together, and I would definitely make it again. In case you missed it, here is a picture again.
I was discussing making this quilt again with Peggy Cooper, who got me hooked on stars. We both like the secondary pattern that was formed between the rows. The diamonds and squares are cool looking, but I think they distract from the stars of the show. Those stars! So I am thinking of making this again and next time adding sashing around each block. It will be fun to compare the two. I’d better get busy on those nine patches! Some fabrics I don’t even have any more of so they will be slightly different.
The January table runner is slowly coming along. It really wasn’t on my radar, and I kind of forgot that we selected January way back in September. And here we are . . . just a few short weeks until it is needed. Oops! So, these little gems are being appliquéd so they will make up a cute border. Stay tuned for more about this project as it progresses.
I did also start appliquéing the nautical theme items for Darlene’s pillow shams this week. Since it is my December OMG (one monthly goal), I have to stay on task in order to get it complete. Here is a peek:
Nothing extra was accomplished this week as far as sewing goes. We got the decorations up all around the house and that’s about it.
December OMG Goal:
- Complete the appliqué of the nautical pieces for both pillow shams
To-Do December 4th through 10th:
- Continue working on January table runner
- Start quilting one quilt flimsy of the three that are waiting for me!
