To DoTuesday for the Week of 11/24/2020

There wasn't much blogging going on last week.  My schedule was just that nuts. Thankfully this week it's much calmer.  Though I didn't post last week, there was a to do list and I actually didn't do too bad. Thankfully I had the weekend to play catch up on those to dos.  

To Do List for 11/17/2020

  • Red, White and Blue Stars: Continue adding borders
  • Morewood Mystery: Work on November Clue 
  • Unity: Add next border, make flying geese - progress 
  • Grassy Creek:  Pick fabrics 

Check marks on three out four of is pretty good. And there was good progress on the fourth one. It was a good weekend for stitching time. I'm off all this week and it will just be the three of us. My contribution to Thanksgiving dinner will be a chocolate cream pie. So I'm off the hook for a lot of the cooking, which means there should be some good stitching time this week.  

To Do List for 11/24/2020

Daisy Chain: De-thread, press, pack and ship

The back is made, cleaned up, pressed and packaged. Now I just need to do the same to the quilt top. Daisy Chain will probably be my last finish this year.   

Red, White and Blue Stars: Add last border

Red, White and Blue Stars, Setting self designed

The skinny middle border is done. All that's left for this to be a finished quilt top is the last border. I have the backing fabric picked out and that should get made before the end of the year. But I doubt I get much farther than that. This project will probably be my first finish for 2021.  

Morewood Mystery: Finish November clue

Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs
I'm more that half way finished with the petal blocks and just started on the HSTs. I'd like to get this clue finished before Friday. So I can spend the weekend working on the first clue for new Bonnie Hunter mystery. 

Grassy Creek
:  Start Clue 1

The Scientist in Training helped me finalize the fabric pull for Grassy Creek. She really liked this combo better than the fabric pull using the cooler fabrics. I usually don't go with Bonnie's color scheme or stitch with this warm of a color palette, but 2020 is a weird year. Seems fitting that the last project for the year isn't my typical style either. 

Unity: Finish Step 5 border, work on flying geese

2020 Bonnie Hunter Sew-In-Place Quilt Along

Only one more border strip to attach.  But there's still a lot of flying geese to make before step 5 is finished. Those will be my leaders and enders for the next week. 

Good luck with your to do list for the week. Fingers crossed I can make good progress on this week's list.  Linking up with Home Sewn by Us for Tuesday To Do

Oh wow, look at the red/white/blue stars! I think I've missed a week or two? Looking great!

Your R, W, & B stars is just looking wonderful, Kate! Nice choices for border fabric. I bet you'll enjoy trying a different color palette for the Bonnie mystery - and maybe the SIT will claim the finished quilt!

Hi Kate! Well, you did fabulous on your list whenever it's from! I love the r/w/b quilt and will be happy to see it finished in 2021. That's a nice way to start out the year.

RW&B is very striking - I love the colors in the Bonnie Hunter quilt also!

You are doing an admirable job getting through your to do list. I always think of forward progress as being worth of a check mark on a list. Glad you can take it easy this week. Enjoy your quilting time. And have fun with the next Bonnie mystery.
