Storm at Sea: Make a decision on the backing ✔
With a whole week to play in the sewing room, it was easy to get all four items checked off the list. Since I'm back to my normal schedule, it may be a bit harder to complete this week's list.
To Do List for the week of 07/14/2020
Storm at Sea: Backing - Wash, trim to size, prep for quilting
This is not the backing originally ordered for the quilt. The first option was a much darker purple, which probably wouldn't work with all the white in the quilt. But the real reason for a new backing fabric is that I didn't order enough of the original. This color blends in well with the colors in the top.
Frolic: Finish the first black border, stitch HSTs
The light blue border is finished. Next is a skinny black border. That will be followed by a wider black border with the HSTs and a finally another skinny black border. Fingers crossed that Frolic will be a finished flimsy by the end of the month.
Unity: Keep working on step 3, the Sawtooth Stars
Just two more stars needed to finish off another pieced border strip. This quilt has been slow going, but at least there's been visible progress each week.
2019 Christmas Mystery Quilt: Pick border fabrics

Now that Mosaic Mystery is completed and off the active project list, that leaves a spot for a new UFO on the "currently in progress" list. This Christmas Mystery quilt was started last October. The sashing is done, but it still needs the last two borders. Unfortunately There weren't any notes with the quilt top, so I don't remember what the plan was for the borders. I definitely want to use what's in the stash, so I'll do some playing in EQ and see what works.
