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:

  1. Rows 5 & 6 in the green arrows – √ Done
  2. Get to the halfway point Road to OK blocks – √ Done

To-Do #1

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.

To-Do #2

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:

  1. Start quilting the QOV – I hope, I hope!
  2. Finish the quilt top of our arrows for the Follow QAL – the parade is June 15th
  3. Enjoy a nice LONG weekend and Memorial Day

    Love everything but am particularly drawn to those gorgeous Road to Oklahoma blocks. I have never made a patriotic quilt. I think I need to put that on my list.

  2. Chrisknits says:

    May you realize all your goals this week! Especially the enjoy your Holiday weekend!!! Thanks for linking up with To-Do!

  3. What a great list Roseanne! I love your version of FYOP and the Riad to Oklahoma is just beautiful. Now to wait patiently to see what you are using for Positivity. 😉

  4. Nanette Chopin Cook says:

    Love that Road to Oklahoma! Your Which Did They Go quilt is pretty

  5. Kathleen McCormick says:

    Love your Follow Your Path flimsy! I do hope your fabric arrives when it should. I too am dashing for deadlines. FYP is quilted (a little while ago). I just got the instructions together for the Positivity QAL so I can start working on it. Not using one background but thinking about a bunch of opposite plus signs…one plus in orange, background in white, then reversed. We will see!

  6. Your FYOP top looks wonderful, Roseanne, and so does the QOV! I’m sorry you ran out of background fabric, and hope it comes quickly. Good luck getting it done!

  7. Gail Sheppard says:

    Wonderful accomplishment on your To Do list!
    Love your arrow quilt – so vibrant … yup, I love it!


    What progress! I hope the white fabric arrives in time. Those arrows look so bright and cheerful. I want to quilt my top before the deadline because it turns out I really like it. I’m still considering Preeti’s quilt along. Have to go check out her site again. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Your arrow blocks look great, and I also really like your QAL project (bummer about running out of fabric. We’ve all been there!) And I’ve also decided to participate in the Positivity QAL using Alison Glass Kaleidoscope fabrics (and I just treated myself to six of new colors in this collection). I hope the Mercy Hospice program gets a lot of quilts from this QAL. They are a very worth charity.

  10. Your arrow blocks are beautiful! I hope your white fabric arrives in time! I’m seriously considering joining the Positivity QAL — I’m hoping I can work it into my schedule.

  11. I am the same as Wendy…looking forward to seeing the fabric that you purchased for the Positivity QAL! The arrow blocks look great, and so does the valor quilt! 🙂

  12. Your arrow blocks are gorgeous! So cheerful and bright! I hope your white fabric arrives in time. You are focused! You can do this!!

  13. Wendy Tuma says:

    Yay for finishing the arrow blocks! Hope your fabric arrives in time, too. And I’m curious what you ordered for the Positivity quilt!
