Last week was one of holiday preparations and celebrations. We had a very nice and relaxed Christmas. There wasn't much time for sewing, but I reduced last week's to do list to account for that.
Weekly To Do List (12/22/2020)
- Daisy Chain: Make binding, trim quilt ✔
- Grassy Creek: Start clues 4 and 5 - progress
- Unity: Finish clue 5, start clues 6 and 7 ✔
Two out of three isn't bad for what turned out to be a pretty busy week. Even though there's not a check mark, there was still progress on Grassy Creek, which is always the goal each week.
I'm on vacation this week. We are taking care of a few odds and ends around the house while we are off, but I'm still planning to get in some good stitching time most days. Here's this week's To Do List:
Weekly To Do List (12/29/2020)
Daisy Chain: Finish hand stitching binding
Last week's to do was to trim the quilt and make the binding. I forgot that the label needed to be made as well. That got done and the binding was sewn to the quilt. The goal is finish the hand stitching before Friday. If I can manage that, Daisy Chain will be the seventh and last finish for 2020.
Red, White and Blue Stars: Make backing
This red, white and blue stripe was in the project box to use as the back. I'll probably stick with it as I don't think there is anything else in the stash that would be more appropriate. Getting the backing made would give me a good start on next year's first finish.
Grassy Creek: Work on clues 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, start clues 6 and 7
I'm still behind on Grassy Creek. I've started cutting the pieces for clue 5, but didn't get any sewn. But there has been reasonable progress on Clues 1, 2, 3 and 4. I won't get completely caught up this week, but there will be good progress. I should have the components to make the first block whenever we get to that clue.
Unity: Continue working on clues 6 and 7
The block I'm using for clue 7 is different than Bonnie's version. I just didn't like how my fabrics worked in it, plus my version has much fewer HSTs. Hopefully that means this block will go together a bit faster. There are just 8 clues for Unity, so I'm getting close to the end on this project. Still it will probably take a few weeks to finish all the blocks for clue 7.
