To-Do #52+19 Weekly Update
This is our 71st 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 August 13th through 19th:
- Start sewing the Pixel Heart quilt – √ done
- Sew the August Fireburst blocks – √ done
- Rehearsal dinner and William & Nicole’s wedding – √ done
- Dominic’s sibling reveal party – it’s a . . .
We did start sewing the pixel heart quilt, but haven’t quite decided what kind of borders to add. Here are the basic 14 rows sewn together. Next time you see this quilt, it will be complete! The background fabric we are using we originally chose for our mantle/chest quilt but it was a bit too beige/gold. In contrast, it seems to fit these fabrics just perfectly.
The August Fireburst block information was shared on the first of the month. We started to put it together and found we had mixed up the labels on the fabrics. For that reason, we had to remake the smaller pieces and then we could sew the blocks together. I am happy to say all four blocks are together now.
To-Do #3 and #4
Oh boy, did we have fun this weekend. As a result, I will share a few pictures. But you will have to wait for them until our Thursday loves post.
For our Elm Street Quilts’ August OMG we are going to quilt and bind Garden Gate. This will also complete a UFO from last October. Binding is all that is left! Woot woot!
