Weekly To Do List for 08/04/2020
- Storm at Sea: Press, trim, prep for quilting ✔
- Frolic: Assemble flying geese borders ✔
- Unity: Step 3, finish sawtooth stars ✔
I kept last week's list pretty short in hopes it would help me focus on getting that backing for Storm at Sea prepped. That worked, though having two extra days off didn't hurt either. I'm going to try a similar strategy for this week in hopes I'll have Storm at Sea ready to ship out for quilting by the end of the week.
Weekly To Do List for 08/11/2020
Storm at Sea: Press and clean up quilt top
Using a white background means removing any dark threads from the back of the top. This is always such a job, but you get a much nicer looking final quilt. It's worth the effort. Christmas Mystery is a finished flimsy and Frolic will likely be by the end of the week. This one needs to go out for quilting before I make backings for those two. SAS is a queen sized quilt, bigger than the throw/twin size that I normally make. I'm just dreading how much work that's going to be. Having two more quilts so close to finishing is helping with the motivation to get this quilt moving along. Since Frolic is a dark background, it won't be so hard to clean up.
Frolic: Finish adding borders
The quilt plan calls for a finally skinny border of black to float the flying geese. One of the four borders is sewn on, so just three more to attach.
Unity: Finish step 3, make Friendship Stars for step 4
The Sawtooth Stars are all made. All that's left of step 3 is to sew the last set of 10 star blocks together and attach them to the top, then add the plain border strips. Stitching the HSTs needed for the Friendship Stars has been my leaders and enders project for the last few days and I'll continue with that till I finish step 3. I may not get this one checked off for the week, but there should be good progress.
That's my list for the week. You can find more lists over To Do Tuesday hosted by Home Sewn By Us. Good luck with your to do list this week.
