To-Do Tuesday Linky #16 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 16th linky party post and the 136th edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week.
To-Do for the week of November 19th through 25th:
- Get the cozy batting/fabrics cut – √ done
- Continue playing around with the hexagon – √ done
- Finish the last few Freefall Fall blocks – √ done
Way back in 2017 we made some microwave cozies for Dominic’s baby shower. They are fairly easy and quick to make. Janice, Sue’s sister, asked us to make some for her to give as a secret Santa gift. Sure! Our plan was to whip up a few but we found that we had no Wrap ‘n’ Zap to use as for the batting. Oops! So we picked some up at Joann’s and then Sue got to work cutting them out and marking the + and x lines for me to sew on.
One cozy is all finished, the second one is awaiting topstitching. The last two are in various stages of construction and will be completed by the end of the week. We’re kind of digging on the peace signs!
Our friend Vicki shared this tutorial for a Hexagon Snowman Table Topper back in July and we knew we were destined to make one or two. This week, I started appliqueing the snowflakes and snowman heads onto the hexagon wedges. This project has been interrupted by a squirrel that snuck in while neither one of us was looking.
Two more snowman heads and two more snowflakes to go – this is turning out so cute.
Talk about a hand-off project! We won these beautiful Fall-colored batik fabrics from Quilting Gail, and another friend (Kathleen) suggested we make a table runner using Sandra’s pattern from mmm Quilts. So, of course, we did and here’s the resulting table runner. Good called Kathleen!
We love the secondary pattern that is formed when you point the leaves outward. It’s all sewn together and quilted with a leaf pattern. The binding will be added shortly and a period will be put on this project.
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. While we have only 16 out of the 24 blocks we should have for this quilt, I guess we’ll just sew them together and call it a day.
To-Do for the week of November 26th through December 2nd:
Holy cow! Just four more weeks of goal-setting for 2019. EEK!
- Decide on the last OMG for the year
- Complete the quilt top for November’s OMG
