What’s New – Weekly To-Do #23
This is our 23rd edition of our to-do list. Let’s see how we did last week:
To-Do Tuesday for the week September 11th through 17th:
- Sew block #12 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL – √ done
- Sew block #5 in I Wish You a Merry QAL – √ done
- Finish To The Moon baby quilt – √ done
- Continue embroidery on the Princess quilt – √ done
- Start the Play Ball quilt – √ done
- Start the journal cover – I don’t know?!
New for the week is the Kitchen Door, block #12 in the Grandma’s Kitchen quilt-along. I really don’t see how this relates to a kitchen door . . . but I love pinwheels so I will happily make it. Here is another example of a block just using half-square triangles. My new favorite squares. ~smile~
I Wish You A Merry quilt-along also released a block on Tuesday. It is a snowman and is the fifth block in the series:
The Love You to the Moon baby quilt is finished. I shared a post with you on Wednesday showing the finished piece. I actually did some free-motion quilting on it. Just swirls, loops and a couple of free hand stars but it sure is easier with this new sewing table. I picked up some quilting gloves too which will make it much easier to move that quilt around next time! What you didn’t get to see in Wednesday’s post is Dominic ON his quilt because Mr. two-weeks-old didn’t have it until Saturday:
I think we’re all over the moon over Dominic, not just his grandma. ~smile~ (You didn’t think I wouldn’t sneak in a picture of him somehow, did you?!!)
The embroidery is complete in pink only with deep purple in the bobbin thread. Sue did most of these hearts herself on the Brother machine. It wasn’t her favorite job, but she got it done like a champ. Now I have to figure out what the do in the other blocks, and we have to get more purple thread . . .
Our Play Ball quilt is making quite a bit of headway. It is all together in a quilt top. Now to quilt it. I want to add Dominic’s name to the border, too, since it is for him. ~smile~
I found a journal I liked on my friend Amazon’s website. I could have searched out Barnes and Noble, Target or Office Depot/Max to find one but it is so much easier to just look online. We are going to cover the journal with bicycle fabric for my boss. Maybe. Sue thinks the journal is too nice to cover – she thinks we need to find an ‘ugly’ journal to cover. Oh, okay. So I don’t know where we are on that?!
EXTRA: We purchased the fabric for plenty of microwave cozies . . . along with a Batman onesie. We will be back to making those cozies soon.
To-Do September 18th through 24th:
- Sew block #13 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL
