To-Do Tuesday Linky #13 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 13th linky party post and the 133rd edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week.
To-Do for the week of October 29th through November 4th:
- Finish the pattern testing quilt top – √ done
- Determine the November OMG project – √ done
- Pick the fabrics for the last beehive block – √ done
- Hexie snowman table topper for
SissyGaga – √ done
This was our first chance to be a pattern tester for another blogger friend. Becca from Pretty Piney released her pattern just yesterday called Star-Crossed Plaid. We shared our quilt top yesterday and we’re calling it Geo Star Plaid. Sort of a mashup from the pattern name and the fabric we won. We’re both really pleased with how it turned out.
Yup! We were quite decisive this month with our November OMG project. It was set already on November first with no dithering. We’ll be sewing the Ripples blocks being sewn by our beehive mates into a quilt top. There might even be some quilting accomplished as well if we get to start on it soon. We’re still waiting on blocks from four friends so we don’t have enough blocks yet.
Quatrefoil is the name of the block that Rachel, the November queen, selected for the beehive to make for her. Rachel chose red, grass green, sunshine yellow, and white as her fabric colors in her two sample blocks. Sue pulled a few fabrics for our two blocks and started cutting. I’ll be sewing them together to get in the mail soon.
Rachel’s sample blocks are on the left; our fabric pull is on the right.
Our friend, Vicki, from Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting, shared a tutorial for a Hexagon Snowman Table Topper back in July. At the time, I showed the post to Sue and it definitely struck a chord with her. We’ve decided we’re going to make a version of this cute topper for Sue’s sister, Janice. We call her Sissy, and just recently (last week!!) Dominic started calling her Gaga. All of us think this will be a very festive topper for Gaga and we enjoy having a plan in place. ~smile~
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party which opened on November 1st. Our November OMG project is to finish the Ripples blocks that we have requested from our beehive for the month of October into a quilt top. I haven’t received all the blocks yet or I might try to get it all quilted as well.
To-Do for the week of November 5th through 11th
