To-Do Tuesday #213 Weekly Listing Update
Join us today for the 213th 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.
To-Do for the week of May 18th – 24th:
- Rows 5 & 6 in the green arrows – √ Done
- Get to the halfway point Road to OK blocks – √ Done
We joined Sandra’s quilt-along called Follow Your Own Path which started in early April. Last week, we did complete all four green and blue blocks. That is an amazing feat especially since item number two should have received all my sewing attention! But who can focus on just one thing?? Well, many can but as long as I’m piecing one project I can easily feed in some from another undertaking at the same time.
Not only are the green arrows are done but so are the blue arrows! Woohoo! Now to add some borders – maybe one, maybe two.
The Road to Oklahoma block is our May One Monthly Goal project. As a Hands-to-Help (H2H) project as well, it will be given to a principal friend that is retiring who is a Veteran. The deadline of June 2nd is very quickly approaching.
We discovered that we do not have enough of the white fabric to complete seven rows! Uh oh. I have ordered more but if shipping delays its arrival too long, we will make a 5×6 quilt top instead of the planned 5×7. By mid-week, enough blocks for the mid-point were achieved. But that wasn’t enough for us since we managed to get four rows together! The half-square triangle sewing and trimming continued as well as for the four-patch blocks. We just might make this deadline – focus, focus, focus as Vicki reminded me!
We’re Joining the Next QAL
My friend Preeti is going to be starting a new QAL on May 30. It called the Positivity Quilt Along and it runs through September at a nice pace.
Pretti released some details about several different block choices. I may have ordered some new fun potential fabrics for this QAL. Maybe. Soon, she is going to release a few different layout designs as well.
Our one monthly goal (OMG) project for May 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. By the end of the next to-do list, we should be able to share our quilt top. Fingers crossed!
To-Do for the week of May 25th through 31st:
- Start quilting the QOV – I hope, I hope!
- Finish the quilt top of our arrows for the Follow QAL – the parade is June 15th
- Enjoy a nice LONG weekend and Memorial Day
