To-Do Tuesday 10/6/2020

It's October, the weather is feeling like fall, and it is Tuesday, 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. I completed half of the items on my list from last week, mostly because I got distracted by a new project late in the week.

To-do list for 9/29 - 10/5
1. Glorious Hexagons--finish joining blocks together                        done
The blocks are all stitched together and the borders have been added--it's a finished quilt top! Reveal post coming soon. Here a portion of the quilt. The blocks were English paper pieced.

2. Square Dance blocks--begin making yellow blocks                      
Twelve blocks done, twenty to go. They certainly are bright and cheery!

3. "Practice What I Preach"--figure out quilting design for border   
I didn't even touch this quilt all week. It is in a heap on a chair waiting to be finished.

4. Cleaning--finish clearing cutting table          no
The cutting table is now back to the same state it was a week ago, but it was much worse for several days. I was pulling possible fabrics for a new project and had them scattered all over the place. 

To-do list for 10/6 - 10/12:
1. Glorious Hexagons--take photos and write blog post
2. RSC Square Dance--continue with yellow/green blocks
3. Cleaning sewing room--spend at least one hour cleaning up the cutting table
4. Alaska QAL--make first set of blocks. This is the new project. It's a quilt along with Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts, and it starts this Friday, 10/9. Here's the pattern for the QAL.

Alaska Rainbow, pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts

My version is going to be in autumn colors instead of the rainbow. You can read more and see my fabric choices in yesterday's post

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! You've advanced some big projects along with a finish. I think that's a fabulous week in my book. I can see why you were tempted to join in the Alaska Rainbow QAL. What a beautiful pattern. Thank you for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Thanks for the reminder that I need to make my Scrap Buster Challenge block in YELLOW, Julie. Yours look SEW good!!

  3. You did well with last week's to do list. Hope you've made good progress on this week's to do list. I need to get a move on with this week's list or I'll not be able to check off anything.
