To Do Tuesday for 4/27/2021

Work continues to be really busy, which means I've been staying later than I like.  That has impacted my sewing time. It's just hard to get in more than 15 minutes when I don't get home till almost 7.  It's a good thing I went with an easy to do list for last week.  

Weekly To Do List for 4/20/2021

  • Morewood Mystery: Work on adding borders
  • Cabins and Fans: Continue assembling blocks 
  • Unity: Makes HSTs for clue 6 as leaders and enders 

Most of my progress happened over the weekend, I didn't get a whole lot done during the week.  I don't see things changing much at work this week, so the to do list will be pretty similar to last week's. I'm focusing on just moving projects along.  

Weekly To Do List for 4/27/2021

Morewood Mystery: Continue adding borders

Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs

The first white border is done and I've started on the first teal border.  The second strip is pinned on ready for stitching. Fingers crossed I've got time to make that happen tonight. Two more borders to go after this one.  I'll be happy if I can get border 2 sewn on and border 3 at least started. 


Cabins and Fans: Continue assembling blocks/quilt top

Row two is under construction.  Now that I've got the quilt math and  all the sewing instructions worked out, this project is starting to move along a bit quicker.  It's been fun to work with all these colorful blocks.

Unity: Continue making HSTs for step 6

Still lots of HSTs to make for these star blocks.  Once I finish this block, I'll have half the blocks needed for border strip 3 for step 7.  Progress has been slow, but at least there has been progress. 

So not an exciting list, pretty much the same as last week. Grassy Creek is on the way back from being quilted. Hopefully that will show up sometime this week so that next week's focus will be on getting it bound so I'll have finish number 2 for 2021 early in May.  

Linking up with ChrisKnits for To Do Tuesday.  Good luck with your stitching plans for the week

Love your Cabins and Fans blocks, and looking forward to seeing the design! It will be fun to see Grassy Creek quilted, too. Have a great week, Kate!

Work always gets in the way of the fun stuff, doesn't it? Each time I see your Unity blocks I think maybe I should have done more of the clues on mine. But I do like how mine turned out, even without the final couple of rounds. Your color combo is going to be gorgeous.

Even with the busy work week you are making good progress. Do you get more motivated when a finish is so near? I love the way your Cabins and Fans blocks are coming together. Good luck with your goals this week. You can do it!
