To-Do Tuesday #210 Weekly Listing Update
Join us today for the 210th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.” We are joining Chris at her To-Do Tuesday linky party. Thanks for the fun, Chris!
To-Do for the week of April 27th – May 3rd:
May already – how is that possible?!!
- Set a May OMG goal – √ Done
- Get going on Follow Your Own Path – √ Done
- Plan for Addison’s big-girl bed quilt – √ Done
For a quilt of valor using the Road to Oklahoma block, we need to make 35 of them for a decent size lap quilt. It’s our May One Monthly Goal project and we managed to actually get
three zero blocks made so far. Zero?! We discovered when we placed them on the design wall that they are pieced incorrectly. Oops. Time for Mr. Ripper to make an appearance.
We are joining Sandra’s quilt-along called Follow Your Own Path which started in early April. We found the baby-size quilt instructions in the Modern By the Yard ezine, #15. Her QAL runs through mid-June. Sandra has shared her first eight blocks. Lots of vacillating is going on about our place!
Did you know that Follow is 2.5″ strip-friendly? Thanks to Sue for noticing that? We finally selected a Kona solid strip set.
Speaking of vacillating, that’s what we are doing over Addison’s big girl bed quilt. I ordered a slew of Tula Pink fabrics from the Fat Quarter Shop in a variety of colors.
Some of the Fairy Dust patterns seem quite appropriate for our sweet girl, pictured above in lavender, mint, and lime. We’re working on just the right collection of colors and prints to bring the ballerina idea to fruition.
Our one monthly goal (OMG) project for April is to complete the 35 blocks needed for the Quilt of Valor (QOV) gift and Hands2Help project. 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 May 4th through 10th:
- Make some CORRECT block for the QOV
- Start sewing Follow Your Own Path
- Find my sewing mojo and send it in to the sewing room!
