To Do Tuesday for 01/26/2021

The weather has been mostly dreary and cold the last week, which makes it easy to get into the sewing room. More time in the sewing room usually translates to a lot of check marks on the to do list. 

Weekly To Do List for 01/19/2021
  • Red, White and Blue Stars: Package and mail
  • Grassy Creek: Continue to make blocks and sashing 
  • Morewood Mystery: Continue making Block A 
  • Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender 
Four for four is definitely a good week. Even better it's easy to see the progress when I look at the design walls.  Other than the RWB Stars, the other projects aren't anywhere close to a finish, so this week's list is going to look a lot like last week's list.  

Weekly To Do List for 01/26/2021

Morewood Mystery: Finish making Block A

Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs

This is the last week of January.  The next clue will come out on February 4th. So stitching the remaining 9 blocks will catch me up so I'm ready to go on the February clue. 

Grassy Creek: Continue making blocks, sashing

Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

There are enough bits and pieces finished to move the blocks and sashing to the big design wall.  Just one more set of 4 subunits to finish and I can concentrate on making the blocks and sashing pieces.  

Unity: Make HSTs as leader and enders project

Unity, 2020 Bonnie Hunter Sew-In-Place Quilt Along

Unity had to come off the design wall to make room for Grassy Creek, but I've left the blocks for the next round up on one side so I can keep count of how many are finished.  I've been making the HSTs as leaders and enders, but will sneak in stitching a full block once I have the 8 required.  I've been sewing a lot so the line of blocks has been growing a bit quicker now.  

My word for 2021 is "Focus", so I'm going to leave this week's to do list at just three items.  Based on what I learned last year, limiting the list to fewer projects does result in more finishes.  Besides, I'm really excited to see Grassy Creek come together, so it's really no hardship to limit the the list for now.  

Linking up with Home Sewn by Us for To Do Tuesday.  Good luck with your to do list for the week.

Hi Kate! I'm so glad you're still keeping an eye on Unity - those fabrics are just some of my favorites and I love seeing them come together. Does this mean that R/W/B Stars have been sent out for quilting? That is another of my favorite quilts tops that you've made recently so I'm looking forward to seeing how it's quilted. Three items seem quite doable to me - my go-to number as well. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

Great job! Focus is an excellent word for the year, and so far you're managing to keep that focus.

Wow, you're doing all three of these at once! That's fun, and they all look great so far I'll be watching...!

Glad you've had time to get so much done this week, Kate! The Morewood Mystery blocks are intriguing - I'm not sewing along, but definitely wondering where it's headed. Grassy Creek is looking great - the colors are really pretty! Have a great week!

Four out of four is great! And you like what you see--you've got really pretty projects going!

Marti said...

I missed this post yesterday. You are making good progress on both quilts and I think you are wise to limit your To Do list and concentrate on just a few.
