To-Do Tuesday #240 Weekly Update

Join us today for the 240th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.” We are joining Linda as the host of To-Do Tuesday linky party. She is doing a fabulous job and we thank her for that!

To-Do for the week of January 11th through 17th:

  1. Round One in the SAHRR √ Done
  2. Continue the appliqué blocks for Colt’s quilt – √ Done
  3. Short list = stress-free! – √ Done

To Do #1

The Round One prompt for the Stay At Home Round Robin 2022 (SAHRR) was announced just yesterday. Anja Anja Quilts chose the curved block as the first-round focus. We paired the drunkard’s path block with a couple of half-square triangles to make a heart-shaped block.

We’ll make four 6″ finished size heart-shaped blocks to surround the center star on the top and bottom to prepare for the next round.

To-Do #2

These appliqué blocks for our sports-themed quilt for Colt are a generous size. Each one measures 15″ square so the individual balls are approximately 10″ to 12″ in circumference. That makes for quick and fun appliquéing for me! This week, while I was fiddling around with the curved block hearts, Sue was working on the pieces for a football. We are using bias tape for the laces, which are also appliquéd around them for sturdiness. Isn’t the grassy fabric just perfect for a football?!

To-Do for the week of January 18th through 25th:

  1. Work on the Round Two prompt for the SAHRR
  2. Do more appliqué blocks for Colty’s quilt – there are a total of 30 blocks in all
  3. That’s it – a short, stress-free list!

    You are clipping along really well with your to do list, it’s fun seeing “Done, Done, Done”! I’m sure your next week will be the same. Still think those hearts are so clever!

  5. Go you, keeping it stress free. I have enjoyed seeing what some quilters have been doing with the curved piecing, all so different and creative. My word that football looks great.

    Yes! The grass is perfect! 30 blocks?!? Wow! Great applique and the curved piecing looks great! (I tend to stay away from curves–no patience I guess?)

    The grassy fabric and bias tape are perfect for the football! Love your heart block! Good luck with your week – always nice when there is a concise list!

  8. Stress-free is good, Roseanne! Have a great week!

  9. Your hearts are wonderful, Roseanne, and I love the football block, too! Stress-free sounds good to me!

  10. Rochelle Summers says:

    I like that you are making this a stress free week. That football is great. I have some packages of bias tape that I never use. Now I’ll have to remember them when I’m looking for applique pieces that are curved. I like your DP hearts. That certainly meets the requirement for curves. Have a great week.

  11. Mary says:

    What a wonderful interpretation of the curve prompt for this year’s round robin. Those little hearts are just perfect to go with the star. And I am always amazed at your applique work. Have a great day!

  12. Wow! The Round Robin piece will be great! I like that you are using some more of that fabric! 30 applique blocks for Colty! wow! That’s going to be a cool quilt! Stay safe and warm! Have a great day!
