To Do Tuesday For The Week of 7/13/2021

A short work week and a relaxing weekend spent mostly at home made it pretty easy to check off all of the items on last week's To Do List. 

To Do List for 7/6/2021

  • Morewood Mystery: Finish assembling backing
  • Cabins and Fans: Continue assembly of row 5 
  • Unity Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender 
  • Macaron Mystery: Shop stash for more fabric palettes 
Last week's list is all checked off.  Of course I'm keeping my lists pretty easy and simple so I'm successful.  The whole point is progress and so long as that happens on most of my focus projects, I'm doing well.  So this week's list will be more of the same, mostly. 

To Do List for 7/13/2021

Morewood Mystery: Press and prep quilt top for quilting

The back is all pressed, de-threaded and prepped.  I need to do the same for the quilt top, that always takes a lot longer to prep than the back does.  

Cabins and Fans: Finish row 6 and start row 7

Cabins and Fans, self designed


I'm almost finished with row 6, just the last yellow half block left to piece.  So far so good on getting this project set together. It looks like the design in EQ. It's on track to be a finished flimsy by the end of August. 

Unity:  Make HSTS for Step 6 as leaders and enders. 

Just one more border left for step 7. One block is done, so just 8 more needed to finish the bottom border for that step.  

Pick a UFO as new focus project. 

There are still seven quilts on this year's project list that I'd like to complete.  Grandmother's Flower Garden is the oldest, but it's hand work, so I'm not ready to tackle that one.  Scrappy Butterflies, Natural Gems and Celtic Solstice are all from 2013, the next set of older projects.  I'm still undecided on a setting for the butterfly blocks, the other two projects still need blocks made before setting can begin.  I may go with one of those three, or perhaps I'll pull something newer from the list. Squared Away Sampler and Chocolate Marshmallow have all the blocks finished, I just haven't figured out how to set those.   

That's my plan for this week.  Linking up with ChrisKnits for To Do Tuesday.

We seem to have similar philosophies about the to-do lists: the important thing is to keep projects moving forward. You have been doing very well with that, and soon will have another finished quilt.

When having difficulty getting back to quilting I find that making something small that is on my to do list, or finishing something that is ALMOST done really helps MY momentum!

You are moving ahead well with your projects. I enjoy seeing Cabins and Fans grow with all its vibrant color! I haven't done a TDT post in awhile - maybe I'll get one in next week!

You rocked out last week's To do list. Fabulous job. Cabins and Fans is looking spectacular. Looking forward to seeing what new UFO you choose as a focus project. Happy quilting.

I'm excited to see how the Morewood is quilted and which fabrics you choose for the Macaron!
