To Do Tuesday for 6/1/2021

We had a relaxing holiday weekend.  We didn't go anyplace, we just hung out around the house. Consequently I was able to spend some quality time in my sewing room for the first time in weeks.  May wasn't the best month for stitching. My last To Do Tuesday post was almost a month ago.  My stitching time was just so limited that I haven't bothered to make up a list since. So we'll start from where I left off and just move on from there. 

Weekly (Monthly?) To Do List for 05/04/2021

  • Grassy Creek: Make label and binding
  • Morewood Mystery: Work on border 3  
  • Cabins and Fans: Assemble Row 3
  • Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 

It's taken me most of May complete three of the four items on my last to do list. At least there is some progress for the month. That's better than none.  Since life continues to be pretty busy, the goal with this week's list is to just keep moving on all the current projects. 

Weekly To Do List for 06/01/2021

Grassy Creek:  Start stitching down the binding

Grassy Creek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

The binding has been machine stitched to the front. All that's left is to hand stitch it to the backing.  I've got the clips in place and the thread selected, I just need to thread a needle and start stitching.


Morewood Mystery: Continue adding border #3

Two of the four border strips are added.  I need to measure the top again before I cut the final two strips for the top and bottom.  

Cabins and Fans:  Assemble row 3, start row 4

I had to unstitch the second row, flip it and then restitch to the sashing.  The printed layout I'm working from didn't have the final block placement. Now that's worked out, I should be easily able to finish row three and make a start on row 4.  

Unity:  Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender

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

Not a lot of progress on this project last month. Just one more block finished for the top border strip. Just 13 more blocks needed to finish this round of borders for Unity.  

That's my to do list for this week. With life being so hectic, I'll be happy if I can check off even just one thing on my list by the end of the week.  Linking up with ChrisKnits for To Do Tuesday.

That backing fabric for Grassy Creek is so pretty. I really like that. Your Cabins and Fans are coming together too. I can tell I’m going to really like that one.

A fun list of projects. I love all of the colors you're using.

I’m so glad you had a nice break. I feel like the past few years have only been more crazy without significant decrease in the crazy!

Nice projects, and even just a little progress is still moving forward. It is summer after all (almost)--no pressure!

All of your quilting projects look fabulous. Just spending a few minutes on a quilting piece is progress towards a finish. Enjoy
