To Do Tuesday for the Week of 7/6/2021

This last week went pretty quickly.  Having time off for the holiday has been nice. I took today off as well, the plan is for a nothing but stitching day to get a jump on this week's To Do List.  Time off last week helped make short work of last week's to do list. 

  • Morewood Mystery: Start cutting and assembling backing
  • Cabins and Fans: Continue assembling row 5 
  • Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and enders 

Three for three is a good week. Progress was made and that's my goal each week, to just keep moving a project along.  This week's To Do List looks pretty similar.  

Morewood Mystery:  Finish assembling backing

The backing is made from 4 panels of two different fabrics.  I'm hoping to get the back assembled today. 

Cabins and Fans:  Finish row 5 and start on row 6

 The last block in row 5 is red-violet.  If I get in a full day of stitching I should be able to check this one off today.  

Unity: Continue making HSTs for step 6

This is the last block needed for the top border.  I should get that made and the border sewn on and get a good start on the blocks for the last border in step 7. There is only one more step left in the project.  I just might get Unity assembled before the end of the year.  

Macaron Mysery: Shop stash for fabrics

I've pulled three palettes so far.  Of these three the pink palette is my favorite with the gray/black and red a close second.  Pulling fabric for a new project is always fun, I like considering the possibilities.  Cutting instructions won't come out till next month, so I can play and dither for a few more weeks before I have to pick one to go forward with. 

That's my list for this week.  Linking up with ChrisKnits for this week's To Do Tuesday.   Good luck with your to do list this week.

That backing! Oh so pretty. Your cabins and fans are intriguing. I actually like all 3 of your pulls.

I love the pink palette too. Looks like you are moving things along. Thanks for linking up, good luck with your next list of goals!

Love your color choice options for Macaron. The one on the left looks really elegant and the one with pink is more playful.

I think I'll just be watching that mystery online and enjoy other people's progress - because I have so many other projects going on. And I couldn't come up with any good color combos in my mind either. LOL

Making progress is always good! Me, not so much this
week. Your fabrics are all beautiful. I like red
so that would be my choice. Have a great day!

What I like about Cheryl's mysteries is she at least tells you which fabrics will touch which others.

Your backing fabric for the Morewood quilt looks perfect for it, Kate! Glad you've had a day to get some sewing in today. Have a great week!

I’m intrigued by your fabric pulls. I’ve also raided the stash and think I found the right bits!
