To-Do #52+42 Weekly Recap Update

This is our 94rd 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.

To-Do for the week of January 21st through 27th:

  1. Add the borders to Spring Wave and layer it – √ done
  2. Finish Tummy Tags – √ done
  3. Make the Wings blog hop project – √ done
  4. Pick up the Harley Davidson t-shirts – √ done


To-Do #1

Ta-da!  Spring Wave is all together, layered and ready for quilting.  Not only does this complete our January OMG project, but it also gives Sue a stress outlet.  She enjoys hand quilting so much!  This time she is planning on using basic shapes for her quilting pattern, like square, circle, triangle and star.  Those sound like fun, don’t you think?

To-Do #2

Well yes, this quickie 36″ square quilt was finished in a blink of an eye.  Perhaps more than a blink, but quickly because we were on a mission.  Our sweet new baby girl has had tummy time without the proper quilt to lay upon.  Thankfully, that has been rectified and all is well.  All the details were shared last week, if you want to know more. ~smile~

To-Do #3

Dare I share any details about our Show Your Wings blog hop project??  How about a peek at the pretty fabrics?  These are some fun Kaffe “Rowan” prints that were gifted to us from Lori at Quilting Needs.  These fun colors are just perfect for this application.  Appliqué has begun, but there will be a pieced option as well. 

To-Do #4

Yippee!  While it was VERY cold (-16 degrees) last Saturday morning, I was able to gather the t-shirts for a Harley Davidson quilt.  This will be a quilt for Deena’s husband, Tim,  who is a huge Harley Davidson fan.  I was thrilled to meet Deena and to get a look at the assortment of t-shirts.  This kind of creativity is right up our alley.  I imagine we will start clipping them apart shortly.

Back on the Dr. Seuss bandwagon, Sue divided the 80 blocks into three four separate quilt piles.  These blocks were bigger than the ones we used previously, so we are using 20 in each quilt top.  Arranged on the design wall, here is the first to be worked on with a bit of navy sashing strips.

Dr Seuss again

Sue’s coworker reminded her that March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, so we have a little time before the celebration.  And to have them all finished and listed on Etsy!

January OMG

Our January goal with Patty at Elm Street Quilts is complete!  Spring Wave is a quilt top, all layered for hand quilting by Sue.  A post was shared with all the dets last Saturday.  It’s almost time to come up with a February goal since Friday is the first.


To-Do for the week of January 28th through February 5th

  1. January color block wrapped up
  2. Continue on with Dr Seuss #1 of 4
  3. Work on the second Bee Hive block

    Hello Roseanne, Just as busy as ever in the quilting life! Sue, knowing that you are stepping out of the “normal” and doing all varieties of shapes for the hand quilting just makes me more excited to see your art! By normal, I just mean that most hand quilted quilts I have seen are pretty much all done in the same design throughout the whole quilt, that is all. Roseanne, I can see all of the improvements you are making in your quilting and love the parts you have shared of Baby Girls Floor Quilt! You are such a tease with just showing bits of the fabric and applique for your Show Your Wings Blog Hop. Smiling Great way to keep up the suspense! Have a great time with the T-Shirt Quilt, I would be very interested in any and all details of your personal opinions on doing this it sure looks like you have some great shirts to work with! How marvelous to have enough fabric to create 4 Dr. Seuss quilts. With the anniversary coming up, I bet these quilts get sold very quickly also!! I enjoyed everything you shared today and just wanted to give you my thoughts today. I will be sending you an email later today, just to let you know. Have a fabulous day and stay inside where it is warm and just quilt to keep you smiling!

  7. I really like how the brighter colors contrast with the light blue in your Spring Wave quilt top and can’t wait to see it when Sue finishes the hand quilting. And I am also interested in watching the progress of the Harley Davidson t-shirt quilt. Have a great day, Mary.

  8. Looks like you have another busy week ahead! Can’t wait to see the wings project — I love projects with applique 🙂 Happy Monday — stay warm !

  9. You guys are really busy, aren’t you. Can’t wait to see your wings project – I do love Kaffe! Baby girl is so lucky to have the perfect tummy time quilt. Good luck surviving the weather you are having the next few days….it feels perfectly balmy here in Maine – 25.

  10. Boy, things are really rockin’ and rollin’ over there! I hope you make the most of the next few cold, cold days, as I know you will. I’m staying in and quilting too.
