To-Do Tuesday #227 Weekly Update
Join us today for the 227th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.” We are joining Linda who is hosting the To-Do Tuesday linky party.
To-Do for last week September 21st – 27th:
- Start cutting for the Two by Four QAL – √ Done
- Applique or buttonhole some additional table toppers – √ Done
- Start quilting the ballerina quilt – Nope, nada!
Katy and Deanna launched a new quilt-along called Two By Four QAL. Cutting has started on the needed 160 rectangles and 280 squares. Did we find that a 20 FQ bundle is enough to make a 60″ x 80″ quilt? Not quite but 22 would be perfect so we are supplementing with stash fabric. Eventually, this will be my leader/ender project . . . or a filler, if you will. The finished size quilt is just perfect for the Merciful charity.
When Sue started cutting, it seems that she can get enough pieces from one fat quarter while the next one comes up short. We’ll have to report back once we have everything cut out as to how many FQs we actually need.
I have been enjoying some time doing buttonholing or applique. A Thanksgiving topper is in the works for Sue’s sister. Being able to share the details here makes me long to just be at home, sewing away!
This is going to be fairly quick to work on, especially that pumpkin! It’s hard to see in the photo but the background looks like small pebbles. We are halfway done already – now to pick out some sashing fabrics.
At the beginning of last week, I would have said there is no flippin’ way I was going to start quilting the ballerina quilt. It was TOO HOT. By mid-week, the temperatures took a dive so snuggling underneath a quilt actually sounded good. Quilting still didn’t happen, though, mostly because it needs to be layered first.
