To-Do #52+29 Weekly Recap Update

This is our 81st edition of our weekly to-do list.  We share this post on 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 October 22nd through 28th:

  1. Add the binding to LV Leaves – √ done
  2. Continue sewing leaves for Baby Girl’s quilt  – √ done
  3. Make string blocks for hurricane relief drive – √ done

To-Do #1

Our October OMG project is complete.  I happily sewed on and tacked down the binding.  I just love that portion of the project!  It is warm and snuggly while finishing off the hand sewing.  We shared the final results yesterday in a post but here is another look at it on the shore of Lake Michigan. LV Leaves #7

To-Do #2

This is a leaves, leaves, leaves kind of week again.  Forty-four of the tiny leaves have now been sewn to interfacing.  Sue is in the process of turning them all right-side out and then appliqué will begin.  

To-Do #3

There is a string block drive ongoing for people who were devastated by Hurricane Michael.  We have never actually made string blocks before, although we made some mittens years ago in a similar process.  I forgot to take pictures of our blocks before mailing them out.  I hope the collection does well and that they aren’t overwhelmed, because in my experience quilters are a generous group.  

October OMG

We posted about our finished quilt just yesterday and in this Final October 2018 OMG linky party.  Another successful monthly finish thanks to Patty at Elm Street Quilts.  Now we have a day or two to select our November goal.  We still have one more UFO along with a few newly started quilts to finish to earn our PHD from Quilting Gail.

To-Do October 29th through November 4th:

Eek!  November already – OMG time is flying by!
  1. Layer Up From Here
  2. Continue working on Baby Girl’s quilt
  3. Sew Fireburst together (and maybe layer it?)

Our other Linky Parties can be found by clicking the link or along the sidebar on our website for more quilting fun – check out what our friends are up to.  Like/follow us on our Facebook page and you can share your photos of what you’re working on.  We would love to see them!

    Your Monday list is much more reasonable than mine, and you manage to do it most of the time, so maybe I should rethink my list. LOL How wonderful that you made the string blocks! I don’t know about that collection, but From My Carolina Home has challenged everyone to get together with their quilt friends and make quilts – about 1200 are needed in the Carolinas! That is a lot of devastation and lost homes. And not the only place. String blocks are a great idea for the quilts.

  2. Congratulations on meeting your October goal! Good for you doing the string blocks — I love string blocks wish I had known about the donation effort I would have loved to participate. Happy Tuesday!

    Hello Roseanne, Since I have began to follow your blog you have been such a positive influence! I am just thrilled that you are meeting all of your goals once again. I am so hopeful that by the end of today, I will be able to post pictures of the quilt I have been working on for about a year. On and off at first, but full force for who knows…LOL. You have been such a help in finishing it, I just want you to know that. I am off to sew on bindings. Great job for your achievements! Have a fabulous day!

    I just love that cozy quilt, and YAY for a completed goal!! You are right about quilters being a generous group; every time I see a block drive, blocks come in from all over the world! I love that about this community.

    You will get those goals accomplished no problem! Fingers crossed!

  6. That looks like a comfy spot by Lake Michigan. I hope you snuggled under that lovely quilt a bit more when you were finished binding it.
