To-Do #52+8 Weekly Update
This is our 60th 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 May 28th through June 3rd:
- Sew row 2 of Plus Playtime QAL – √ done
- Continue quilting I Spy – √ done
- Find fabrics for Christmas in July blog hop – √ done
Our charge this week was to sew the second row for the Plus Playtime QAL hosted by Sandra at mmm Quilts. We are loving how this quilt is coming together so quickly, the design itself and especially the hashtag fabrics we chose. This is definitely a make-again quilt!
The quilting on I Spy has commenced this week. I really love looking at all the different fabrics in this fun quilt. I choose a crosshatch design for this quilt because it is simple, easy, and quick. Now that the weather has turned fall-like again, Dominic could be using it right now. Hopefully summer will return again soon.
We are participating in a Christmas in July blog hop, hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Just recently we won a gift certificate from Stitch Stash Diva thanks to the Postcard QAL. We are planning THE COOLEST project for the blog hop and had the chance to pick out some fabrics for it. It is often difficult to select fabric online, don’t you think? We didn’t have much of an issue with this shop because of their huge selection. Honestly, we had so many options in the cart at one point we had lost our focus. We reined ourselves back in, and here is our ultimate choice for this project.
Can you see the texture in that lovely deep red? And the green fabric – ooh-la-la it has a pine tree design but the colors are just perfect. Sue almost has the EQ8 pattern ready to go. ~smile~
Sue decided to start working on another new quilt. She is calling it Fall based on the colors in the fabrics. This will be another hand quilting project with different leaves used like a Maple, Oak, etc. Here she is working on the layout. I really like the fabrics and colors in this charm pack, and the alternate blocks are a pretty cream.
June OMG Goal:
Our Elm Street Quilts June OMG goal is to finish the Tea Flower mystery QAL #2 quilt top. With any luck we may get it quilted as well but I’m not holding my breath.
