To-Do Weekly #27
This is our 27th edition of our to-do list. That means it has been over half a year since joining this fun idea of a weekly to-do list! It really helps us keep focused.
To-Do Tuesday for the week October 9th through 15th:
- Sew block #16 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL – √ done
- Sew blocks #7 and #8 in I Wish You A Merry QAL – √ as done as it’s going to be
- Finish both animal panel quilt tops – √ done
- Complete a few more Evening Star blocks – √ done
- Spend Columbus Day babysitting – √ done
Block #16/25 called Small Change was released on Wednesday by Pat Sloan in her quilt along called Grandma’s Kitchen. Good thing I am getting so much practice with HSTs between her patterns and the Evening Star blocks. This one calls for 10 in the 10″ block. We are getting closer to the end of this quilt along. It will be finished right before Thanksgiving.
We are also participating in the I Wish You A Merry quilt along, and two blocks were released this week. Block #7 is a poinsettia and block #8 are presents. We’re not making block #8 because we don’t like it – we’ll make another angel to represent Sue’s brother (she lost her brother and sister within six months of each other). My friend and fellow blogger, Kathryn, gave me the idea – thank you! Here is our poinsettia:
The animal panels quilt tops are all together. We used the dark blue sashing in both so they look the same yet different:
Our October One Monthly Goal (OMG) is the Evening Star quilt. The block measures approximately 9″ unfinished. We are leaning toward making the quilt 4 x 5 rows with a border. Or we could add sashing instead of a border. Here are the first four blocks. That is enough for the first row but I’m going to wait until we can lay them all out. I like the secondary pattern that is being formed:
How much fun did I have on Columbus Day with this sweet great-nephew?? Lots and lots! Here he is on his Play Ball quilt in his little monkey jammies. His baptism went well on a very rainy Saturday afternoon. He didn’t cry for the ceremony or while the priest showed him off to all the church members. ~smile~
October OMG Goal:
- Evening Star is not half done yet. Yikes only two full weeks to go!
To-Do October 16th through 22nd:
- Sew block #17 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL
- Sew four more Evening Star block (or more)
- Start quilting one animal panel
