To-Do Tuesday #217 Weekly Update
Join us today for the 217th weekly To-Do Tuesday (on Monday!) 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 June 15th – 21st:
- Finish the flip flops and flowers topper – √ Done
- Start working on the Positivity QAL – √ Done
The summer solstice is today and I really wanted the appliqué of the flip-flops and flowers topper to be complete. The approved layout hastened the addition of the borders made using more solid colored strips.
Shortly thereafter, the easy route was taken as far as quilting. With just a basic crosshatch design, the topper was finished lickety-split. As for binding, I rummaged through my leftover binding drawer until a found a piece that was long enough. Just like that our June OMG project was complete. I’ll share all the details in a wrap-up post with pictures to link to Patty’s website in just a few days.
This weekend we had a chance to make a final decision on our fabrics for the Positivity QAL. Preeti is hosting the summer-long event which allowed us to be a little late to the starting gate. Our hardest decision? Which block style did we want to make and what fabrics?? We’re going with the Cornered Plus block and here’s a peek at our first four blocks.
Preeti will have a linky party on Sunday to share your progress. The schedule shows that 24 blocks are to be made/shared then. We are about halfway there since we were all caught up Sunday with 12 blocks finished. We shared more Positivity thoughts and information last month.

To-Do for the week of June 22nd through 28th:
- Make another 12 of the Cornered Plus blocks
