My office calendar shows a new month as of yesterday. Hard to believe that a quarter of 2021 will be over at the end of this month. Didn't we just change out our calendars to a new one?
Friday was a day off work, so I got an extra afternoon of stitching time last week. That was really helpful in tackling the to do list.
Weekly To Do List for 02/23/2021
- RW&B Stars: Make binding, label, trim quilt, sew binding on ✔
- Grassy Creek: Start adding borders ✔
- Morewood Mystery: Continue making block B ✔
- Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender ✔
RW&B Stars should come off the list this week. I'm hoping that Grassy Creek is out for quilting by the end of the month so it will come off the list making room for one of my older UFOs. But for this week, the To Do List will look pretty the same as it has for the last couple of months.
Weekly To Do List for 03/02/2021
Red, White & Blue Stars: Finish the binding, take glamour photos
|Red, White and Blue Stars, self designed|
I've turned one corner and got the label stitched down last night during a phone call with the Scientist in Training. So three corners left. I had planned to make the label all in red, but my printer wouldn't cooperate, all I could get from it was a really sick looking brown, so I decided to go with the contrasting blue. The quilt is only throw sized, so it shouldn't take too long to finish the hand stitching.
Grassy Creek: Add the borders

I decided on three borders: gray, yellow and then gray again. I'm going with simple strip borders. I like the quilt, but not enough to spend a lot more time making more pieced borders.
Morewood Mystery: Continue making block B

Morewood is now up on the big design wall. I think there are just four block B's left to make. With the focus on getting RW&B Stars to finished quilt and Grassy Creek to finished quilt top, I doubt I get all four made this week. But you never know, that will be my stretch goal for the week.
Unity: Continue to make HSTs for step 6

There's a nice little pile of HSTs in the upper left corner, but I'm getting low on a few other block components for step 7. So I'll also need to replenish a few of the other pieces before making any more blocks.
