To-Do #107 Weekly Update
This is our 107th edition of our weekly to-do list. We share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts and at Becca’s What I Made Monday website on Mondays, and Christine’s Stitch All the Things website on Tuesdays. Check out what our friends are sharing!
To-Do for the week of April 22nd through 28th:
- Finish up the Bee Hive April blocks – √ done
- Baby Batik Dark quilt top together – √ done
- Quilt and bind April Showers runner – √ done
We hope you had a Happy Easter or Passover to those who celebrate – that seems so far away and long ago now doesn’t it?! Our Elna sewing machine quit and had to be taken in for repairs. What does one do when they can’t sew? Read, watch movies, eat, nap, complain and make one’s best friend’s life miserable . . . perhaps some of that might have happened. One can CUT fabric so one is ready to sew like crazy when the machine is fixed! Or the Brother embroidery machine may have been coaxed into use.
Turns out I really like using this little machine. It has needle-down function, a push stop/start button, and the cut-thread button. AND it even uses the same power cord as Ellie – no crawling around on the floor was necessary to get this baby up and running.
The Ripple blocks went in the mail to Jen last Thursday. I had plenty of issues with assembling this block, although it shouldn’t have been difficult. Here’s a sneak peek with all the gory details to follow later this week.
The Batik Dark baby quilt (needs a different name for one thing!) is all together and layered. Sue is going to hand quilt whales along with outlining the nine-patch blocks. I even have several blocks ready for the matching Batik Light baby quilt that she’ll hand quilt following this one!
The appliqué umbrella blocks are all finished as are the raindrops in the colorful pieced border. Here’s a little sneaky peeky but all the dets will be shared tomorrow in our OMG post for the month.
Our April goal to finish appliquéing our Spring Shower table runner is complete. Woot woot! We will share a post with all the details tomorrow, and will also share with Patty at Elm Street Quilts. Our thanks go to Patty and the sponsors for hosting this monthly link up.
To-Do for the week of April 29th through May 5th
