To-Do #52+24 Weekly Recap Update

This is our 76th edition of our weekly to-do list. We share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts website on Mondays, and Christine’s Stitch All the Things website on Tuesdays.  Check it out as other friends post their to-do lists as well! ~smile~

To-Do for the week of September 17th through 23rd:

  1. Start quilting I Wish You A Merry quilt – √ done
  2. Add borders to Rainy Days (Spiral #2) – √ done
  3. Sew Jigsaw Puzzle rows together  – √ done
  4. Determine the Quiet Book layout – √ done

To-Do #1

I have to say that taking that stippling class last month has definitely boosted my confidence.  I don’t usually have an issue with that – I always think I can do anything until I can’t.  Happily I can report that the IWYAM quilt is all quilted in an allover stipple or meander.  Here’s a picture I shared on IG – I am trying to imitate lights or ornaments on the cute little trees.  I’ll be sharing a full post soon – it is due before the end of the month!

To-Do #2

This is our second quilt using the pattern called 16-Patch Framed 4-Patch quilt.  A generous finished size, the added borders will make it approximately 58″ x 75″.  We added three borders to the basic quilt, one of which was scrappy.  It consisted of the remaining 17 inches or so of the Rainy Day strips.  Next we will need to find a backing, and then it will be quilted using a spiral pattern.

To-Do #3

The Jigsaw quilt is all together!!  Woohoo.  Now we just need to find a backing or maybe use one from our stash.  It sure seems like we should already have something on hand – just sayin’.

To-Do #4

Sue has worked on the layout for the Quiet book we are going to make for Dominic.  We’ll be sharing more about this sweet idea from Carol at Just Let Me Quilt as time progresses.

September OMG

For our Elm Street Quilts’ September OMG we are going to quilt and bind I Wish You A Merry!  Quilting has been completed; binding still has to happen!  We will be making this goal.

To-Do September 24th through 30th:

How did it get to be the end of September already?!!
  1. Wrap up our September OMG quilt
  2. Find a backing for Jigsaw
  3. Start baby girl quilt

    Of course you can do anything! Your stippling looks great and I love the little ornaments you added to the trees. You go girl!

    You gals have been busy. It must be so much fun to have a quilting buddy at hand like you each do. I could so use a second opinion so often, sigh. I really like the stippling motif you have there.

  3. Becky Haaland says:

    Congrats on getting that “to do” list done! I love your quilting! I’m in the learning stages of free motion but it is such fun!

    stippling – that’s what I need to perfect in my fmq. And I need to check out that quiet book. I like the idea of making a book for my grandson.

  6. Barbara Esposito, TheQuiltedB says:

    I can’t wait to see the Quiet book progress! And I have to say that the spiral quilting intimidates me! Your quilting on the 16 patch quilt is absolute perfection. I would love you to share your tips when you quilt the latest 16 patch!

  7. Kathryn says:

    All the best for this week, I am sure the binding will get done on I Wish You a Merry. Last night I was in a panic (small) because I realised I hadn’t kept anything for my scrappy quilt binding! But fished around and got a scrappy binding fabric for it!

  8. Happy Monday Roseanne — I’m back home again! You and Sue impress me constantly with all you are able to accomplish. Your loops look great on the trees!

  9. You two are buzzing along with projects! Love that little “start baby girl quilt” notation. Sounds like fun to me!
