To-Do #52+34 Weekly Recap Update
This is our 86th 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 of November 26th through December 2nd:
- Add borders to George – √ done
- Start quilting Up From Here – √ done
- Keep from tearing my hair out over EQ8 – √ done
We decided to add three borders to Baby Girl’s quilt. George the giraffe has a gray background. Here’s a closeup of two of the three borders. There’ll be one more wide gray border on the left side, where it’ll get the most wear and tear. We can’t reveal any more until she’s born. ♥ ♥
Oh, yes indeed! Quilting has definitely been happening on Up From Here. I am pretty darn sure that there will be a full reveal on Friday. We’ll have a final recap of the sew along before the end of 2018, too. I had to test out my idea of feathers on the acrylic board before sitting down and sewing them.
A huge Thank You goes to Shannon at The Flemings Nine. She wrote after reading my list from last Monday and offered her assistance. She told me her son, who’s 15, is a whiz at EQ8. I sent her my hummingbird file – after giving export a try to see if it really created a file. It did! She sent it back with some tips and tricks. I think Shannon’s son has a bright future – maybe he can teach some EQ8 classes! Plus her daughter is interested in sewing and quilting. Kudos to the next generation! There is still hope for a hummingbird paper piecing sew along in January.
This month we chose to finish quilting and binding our Jigsaw baby quilt. We are linking with Patty at Elm Street Quilts where other friends share their goal for the month. A possible secondary goal would be to finish writing the pattern, but that’s a slim chance since EQ8 is giving both of us fits over that knob piece. It could happen though since Shannon give me some tips!
To-Do December 3rd through 9th
- Continue working on George
