To-Do #52+16 Weekly Update – OMG Complete
This is our 68th edition of our weekly to-do list. We share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts website on Mondays, and Christine’s Stitch All the Things website on Tuesdays. Check it out as other friends post their to-do lists as well! ~smile~
To-Do for the week July 23rd through 29th:
- Completely finish and wrap the runners – √ done
- Start sewing the Up From Here sew along – √ done
- Layout the second Plus Playtime quilt for Luke
Nicole’s shower was held on Sunday, and we gave her the two runners then. We followed the suggestion of “Whip It Up Quick” table runner pattern. They were made in the colors she selected of black, gray and brown. We threw in some teal as the smallest block just for some interest. For the backing, Sue found a cute black and gray print so that they might be reversible if they choose. There was a plant on the table next to me when I was taking the first two pictures, and then William joined us at the shower. We wish them ALL the happiness in the world.
We were able to sneak a little time to sew the first block of Up From Here for the sew along. It was a struggle as we were busy playing with Dominic, and the weather was beautiful. Who wants to stay inside and sew?!! Here is the first of six blocks.
One corner of the quilt is laid out on the design wall. So I guess that means it is partly done . . . sort of. More on this next week!
July OMG Goal:
Our Elm Street Quilts July OMG goal is to sew our Christmas in July blog hop mantle/chest quilt. Thankfully, that is all wrapped up! We shared it in a post on the 24th for a Christmas in July blog hop but it bears having one more shared picture.

- Finish the layout for the second Plus Playtime for Luke
