Checking off my to do list at work took priority this last week. End of year reviews are coming up, so it's time to finish off what's left of the 2020 goals. Not much different with what I'm doing with my 2020 quilting ambitions. Even though there were some long work days last week, I still managed to check off all the items on last week's to do list.
- Red, White and Blue Stars: Decide on sashing fabric ✔
- Morewood Mystery: Finish September clue blocks ✔
- Unity: Make HSTs and blocks for step 4 ✔
- 2019 Christmas Mystery: Mail out for quilting ✔
I've completed my to do lists for the last four weeks. So am I not being ambitious enough? Should there be so much on the list that I don't get it all done each week? Would that be more motivating? It does feel really good to get my list checked off each week and I'm making good progress on my UFO list. Since there is so much going on at work right now, I'm going to stick to just four to dos for this next week. No point adding to the stress levels. Here's the plan for next week.
Red, White and Blue Stars: Start sashing the blocks.
After much dithering and seeking input from the family and blog visitors, I ended up choosing the original red and white print I started with.
With the sashing finally decided, I needed to finalize the setting.
The final sticking point was the color of the corner stones, red or blue. I'm hoping there is enough of the dark blue to finish this setting, if not it will red corner stones. Both work, the blue corner stones just tone down the red sashing a bit.
Morewood Mystery: Start October clue
Based on the cutting instructions, we are finished with the dark blue (B), but there are still a pile of the violet (A) squares. So October's clue should use C or D.
Storm at Sea: Trim quilt, make and attach binding to front of quilt
First I have to pick up the quilt at the post office. That will hopefully happen today at lunch. The label is ready, I just need to print it off on fabric so it's ready to attach with the binding.
Unity: Make HSTs and Blocks for Step 4.
Still need to finish off the top and bottom borders for round 4. I'm not anywhere close to having that done. But there should be more progress on that this week.
