To-Do Tuesday 9/29/2020

Today is the last Tuesday in September, which means it is time once again for the To-Do Tuesday Weekly Progress Update and Link-up hosted by Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn By Us. 

To-do list for 9/22 - 9/28
1. Orphan Adoptions--choose winners, pack up and mail away        done
One orphan has been delivered, and the other two should arrive today.

2. Clean and oil sewing machine                                                  not done
I didn't do this, but I did clean all the threads out of my chair wheels.

3. "Practice What I Preach"--finish quilting                                    progress
I finished the quilting in the inner border, started the outer border, then decided I didn't like it and pulled the stitching out.

4. Spell It With Fabric--sashing/setting, choose border & backing    done
I cut the sashing and cornerstone pieces, narrowed down the border choices to two, and found a backing fabric that will work. Here are my border options. The butterfly fabric is my first choice, but I'm not sure there is enough.

5. Cleaning sewing room--anything would be an improvement!       done
This took up a big chunk of my time last week. I cleared away all the piles from one end of my cutting table. The other end is still a mess, but this is huge progress. You can see a couple of photos in yesterday's post.

To-do list for 9/29 - 10/5
1. Glorious Hexagons--finish joining blocks together. This is a project from several years ago that has the blocks all made and partially joined. This photo shows about half of the blocks with the background fabric added.

2. Square Dance blocks--begin making yellow blocks
3. "Practice What I Preach"--figure out quilting design for border
4. Cleaning--finish clearing cutting table

That should be more than enough to keep me busy for the next week. I'll report on my progress and post a new set of goals next Tuesday. I'm linking up with other To-Do Tuesday lists at Home Sewn by Us .

  1. Hi Julie! Didn't this past week go by quickly?! I can't believe it's the end of September already. I have to say since you put clean/oil your sewing machine last week, it reminded me to do the same. My machine thanks you for that! Your Glorious Hexagons project looks so cool but adding those triangles looks way hard. What a fascinating piece this will be when it's all finished. Are the centers fussy cuts or pieced or some of both? Thanks so much for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Spell it with fabric is so great!!! I like both of your choices - I am always partial to dots for some reason so like that second one really well!! enjoy your week!

  3. Looks like doing these lists gets your stuff done! Way to go!

  4. Congrats on a successful week. Even if you didn't completely check off all the items, you made good progress on most. I remember those hexies, very fun and bright. Good luck with this week's to do list.

  5. Ohhhh! Your letters quilt is so lively, colorful and cheerful! You did a great job with color selection!
