To-Do Tuesday Linky #35 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 35th linky party post and the 155th weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off,” wrote Gladys Taber.
To-Do for the week of March 31st through April 6th:
- The Flower Garden block – √ done
- Layout the t-shirts for Sydney’s quilt – √ done
- Figure out the April OMG – √ done
Melva released The Flower Garden block sometime during the never-ending month of March. Actually, on the 26th, you have the choice of making a paper-pieced or an embroidery block. We went the embroidery route – I drew the cluster and Sue embroidered it. Here is our version of The Flower Garden along with how the colors look with two of the earlier blocks.
We’ve made a little progress on the t-shirt quilt for Sydney. She’s a senior in high school and will be heading off to college in a few short months . . . in Wisconsin, no less! We know just how chilly it can get in this state and we want her to snuggle and be comfy. Here is a shot of the initial layout and one to check for color density.
While picking up each row we decided to swap row four with row five. It remains to be seen if I can actually get them sewn in this order!
Thankfully, Patty hosts a monthly linky party. The inspiration behind her party is to motivate everyone to select one single goal to focus on for the month. We will piece the hexagon baby quilt by the end of this month as our April OMG.
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party. We will be piecing these hexagon shapes into a nifty baby quilt as our goal. If I can figure out how to quilt this, that may happen.
To-Do for the week of April 7th through 13th:
Finally! An end to March – this has been a very long month.
