Welcome to another Tuesday To-Do List! Today we will review how I did on my previous list. then come up with a new set of goals for the week ahead. The Tuesday To-Do List link-up is hosted by Linda at Texas Quilt Gal.
Last week's list was a long one, and I managed to complete every goal on it! It took me until Monday afternoon to finish one of them, but it was definitely a successful week.
To-Do List for 1/11/22 - 1/17/22
I avoided this project all week until yesterday, then decided to spend some time on it. As usual, the quilting wasn't as difficult as I'd expected, and I completed the quilting of the sashing around two rows of blocks (the double wavy lines.) This is the back of the quilt; the quilting is much harder to see on the front.
2. Bowties 365--continue making 4" blocks ✔done
I am done making bowtie blocks for now, and have settled on a layout for the first quilt--see it HERE.
3. Charm Baskets--make more red blocks ✔done
I ended up with 21 red basket blocks for the month. You can see 15 of them HERE.
4. Hearts Applique--prep red, stitch at least one block ✔done
Two red hearts were stitched last week.
5. Pull a red UFO to work on ✔done
I unearthed a very old UFO, this Storm at Sea Heart that I made in 2001! It currently measures 18.5" x 21.5" and needs borders.
6. Pull or make center block for SAHRR ✔done
My center for this year's SAHRR is a repeat from last year, a Feathered Star block. I wasn't happy with all the borders on it last year and put it aside unfinished. I'm going to try again, and I have removed the outer borders and corners. See how it looked before these changes in this post.
My list for the next week is mostly about borders, quilt assembly or machine quilting rather than making blocks. That is very unusual for me, but it's time to get some projects closer to the finish line!
To-Do List for 1/18/22 - 1/24/22
2. Bowties 365--cut setting fabric, begin joining blocks together
3. Hearts Applique--stitch at least one red block
4. Storm at Sea Heart--add neutral border
5. Feathered Star SAHRR--add curves to border
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 Texas Quilt Gal.
