To Do Tuesday for 2/9/2021

The freezing drizzle stopped over night, but it's still very, very slick. Offices are closed again today, probably because the parking lots are pretty much ice skating rinks.  Even though offices are closed, I'm still expected to work from home virtually, so I'm still limited to stitching this evening after work.  I'm OK with that and just thankful I don't have to get out in the cold today.  

The To Do List from last week included only three items. All three are in the block making stage, which for the Bonnie Hunter mystery projects can take a bit.   

Weekly To Do For 2/2/2021

  • Grassy Creek: Assemble blocks 
  • Morewood Mystery: Start February clue 
  • Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender 

There was good progress on all three to do's, but each project still needs quite a bit of work before they are finished quilt tops.  This week's to do list is pretty much the same as last week's. 

Weekly To Do for 2/9/2021

Grassy Creek:  Continue making blocks and assembling rows

Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

All the sashing and border subunits are completed, but I still need to assemble 4 blocks. I ran out of the gray/yellow HSTs used in the corners of the block,  So those have been added back to the pile of bits and pieces at the sewing machine.  The goal is to just keep assembly moving along. 

Morewood Mystery:  Continue piecing block B

One block B is fully assembled and is up on the design wall with block A.  There's not enough up on the design wall yet to get a sense of the full quilt layout.  I'm really happy with my fabric choices, hopefully I'll like the final quilt just as well.  The plan here is just to keep assembling blocks.  

Unity: Continue making HSTs for Clue 6 as leaders and enders

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

As I get the HSTs finished, I'll make a block for clue 7.  One border strip has been sewn to the top, but with Grassy Creek up on the big design wall, I don't have a good spot to photograph the progress. Again the goal is just a bit of progress each week.  

That's my to do list for this week. Linking up with Home Sewn by Us for To Do Tuesday.

It is amazing how much you can get done when you have a checklist. Your blocks for the BH Unity quilt are coming along nicely. Nice to be able to work from home when the weather is not so nice.

now that offices have it set up to work from home from the virus I guess they realize in bad weather you can work from home too

I really like the Moorewood quilt and how it's turning out. It's so...so...crisp? Keep thinking I need to hop on that one real quick.

The Morewood block B is really interesting and will add some drama to the quilt. Love that block!!

Glad you don't have to go slip sliding around and can just stay safe at home. Even if you aren't progressing as fast as you'd like, at least you get to play with pretty fabrics and lovely colors! Both projects are looking good!

Kate, a little progress each week makes all the difference.

You're making good progress, sticking with those three projects! I love the dark red in your Morewood Mystery block. Those fabrics are all going to be pretty together!

Hi Kate! You changed the header on your blog again. It looks nice! What a blessing to be able to work from home and not have to attempt to skate your way into work. That's a HUGE relief! Yippee for progress on all three major projects. Keeping units by the sewing machine to feed in as leader or ending units really helps, doesn't it?! Thanks for linking up! ~smile~ Roseanne

All great blocks, but my favorite is the Morewood mystery - the colors are so rich!
