To-Do Tuesday #209 Weekly Listing Update
Join us today for the 209th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update on a Monday. Since I missed last week, I thought I could get away with posting one day early.

To-Do for the week of April 13th – 26th:
We sort of took a little break from sewing for a week, and with these easy goals, it wasn’t hard to do so!
- Start working on the Road to Oklahoma quilt blocks – √ Done
- Choose the layout for Paris and buy fabric(s) – √ Done
One of the principals in the school district where I work is retiring this year and I’ve elected to make a quilt of valor for him. Using the Road to Oklahoma block, we need to make 35 of them for a decent size lap quilt for him. One down, 34 to go!
Not only did we get to visit a local quilt shop but we were successful in finding THE perfect matching fabric. The red/orange color in the Paris panel is a tricky shade, and one that did not exist in our stash. However, after scouring the shelves at a new-to-us quilt shop (how did it open without us noticing?!) we found these gems. Just perfect, don’t you think?!
Now we can decide if we want to add flying geese, nine-patch, or just a red/orange square in the border to widen the panel. We are choosing between the three different layouts I shared in last Tuesday’s To-Do update.
Oops – I forgot a To-Do #3
I forgot to include in last week’s to-do listing that Sandra’s quilt-along called Follow Your Own Path started. Earlier this month she shared the cutting instructions for a throw size quilt, while the baby-size instructions can be found in the Modern By the Yard ezine, #15. We have a couple of different fabrics and colorways that we were considering for this QAL. It’s certainly not too late to join in as it runs through mid-June.
Our one monthly goal (OMG) project for April is the Paris panel completion in a quilt of some sort. Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a monthly linky party which we did join at the beginning of the month.
To-Do for the week of April 27th through May 3rd:
- Holy moly – set a May OMG project goal
- Get going on Follow Your Own Path
- Plan for Addison’s big-girl bed quilt
