WOWEE! It’s been a while since I shared a weekly to-do update. Thank heavens that Chris took over the hosting for us. Last weekend, I thought about skipping this post. No one really cares what we are working on. But then I shook that thought off on the drive to work Monday morning. I care about sharing what we’re working on! So, thank you for sticking with us through my self-imposed short-term shutdown.
To-Do #1 and #2
We finished both of our Positivity quilts and shipped them off to Bernie. The final linky party and quilt parade just started on Sunday. You are in for a treat when you check out all of the different versions that have been made and shared! It is truly AMAZING how a fabric choice completely changes the whole dynamic of the finished product. Thank you to Preeti for hosting this worthwhile endeavor and to Bernie for collecting all the end results for charity. Woot woot!
So what I can share that might be on a future list? Funny you should ask, even if you didn’t! We have been quietly working on Addison’s ballerina quilt. Just a little appliqué stitching now and then.
Last Saturday night I even shared a video showing how I appliqué and that planning your path first allows you to continue going. I apologize in advance that it’s a bit choppy! I need to have Sue take the video instead of me thinking I can do it. I wish I could share the delightful call we received after Addison saw the video. She said, “thank you” and it’s “gorgeous.” ~smile~
Also, making an appearance on my sewing table is a couple of hexagon shapes using background fabrics that were cut in March. No rush, huh?!
I just love Riley Blake’s fabric lines and her Christmas Traditions one is no exception. I know it’s a shocker but we are actually planning ahead. There are definitely some table toppers in my very near future and I love making them.

We completely missed Patty’s Elm Street Quilts OMG linky party for August. You can bet your sweet bibi that we will come up with something for September!
To-Do for the week of August 24th – 30th:
- Start adding sashing and borders to Addison’s ballerina quilt
- Continue appliqué on table toppers
- Celebrate Sue’s mom’s 86th birthday!
