    OOOh… your peak of the cookie cutter blog hop item is teasing us! I hope I remember to pop back in and take a look! Seems like you did a good job this week.

  2. I’m also in favor of the straight lines for the Alaska postcard quilt, but it looks like a lot more more than the crosshatch would also work nicely. And your Sisters quilt top turned out so wonderfully. I love the on-point design.

    You two are so busy! Sisters is turning out so great! I’m with you, Roseanne, I have to sit back and look at the quilt top for a while before deciding on how to quilt. Using the clear plexi glass is a great way to test out designs. Hope you enjoy Thanksgiving even without a gathering of family and friends.

  4. Roseanne I can’t wait to see that reindeer project! The peek is so intriguing! I do like the look of the straight line quilting on your postcard quilt. It does really look like it will make the postcards pop!

  5. Thanks for hosting the To-Do Tuesday linky. This is my first time stopping by and linking up. I’ve had a lot of fun hopping around and checking out some of the other linked posts. I love your sisterhood quilt. That’s a really neat quilt. 🙂

    I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. We will be staying home by ourselves this year, as will all the other parts of the family. With Covid numbers through the roof here in Iowa we think that’s the best course of action for this year.

    Have a good one!

    Great progress on your list from last week, The sister blocks are stunning. So colorful. I really like the Alaska Post Care runner. And yes I’m doing the virtual cookie exchange. My day to post is December 1st. Which is sneaking up on me…I better get busy…have a great day!

    Some really lovely photos of those projects. The sisters quilt top is wonderful (I guess setting goals every week really does pay off!!) and the Christmas project is really tantalizing. I like the straight line quilting on the postcard quilt. It leaves those cards untouched! Wishing you and yours a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

  8. My 2cents? The crosshatch quilting idea on the postcard runner diminishes the postcards themselves…so I opt for the creative straight stitch ruler work!

    That Rudolph is so stinkin’ CUTE!!! Aaargh, the Christmas projects are killing me this year. I don’t usually catch the bug of wanting to make holiday projects, but just this past week I got a strong hankering to make a scrappy one-patch or something simple like a disappearing 9 patch full of novelty Christmas prints, to snuggle under on the sofa while watching holiday movies. Found next to nothing in my stash, and even fewer novelty Christmas prints to choose from at my LQS! :-(. Seems they’re selling out on them this year, what with everyone stuck at home sewing quilts AND festive masks, and of course the shop owners could not have anticipated this additional demand when they were placing their fabric orders however long ago. I SHOULD stay home today and get my house clean, and make the dough for my pie crusts, and load something on the long arm… But I am fighting a wicked urge to trek to a farther away quilt shop to see if they have more Christmas prints to choose from!

    Great job on your Sisters quilt top and the moose looks interesting! I love mooses! LOL Looking forward to seeing your project next week! Wow, December in one week already?!! Good luck on deciding your quilt pattern for the postage stamp quilt. Deciding on quilt designs is one of my problems as well!!

    I had to go check out the virtual cookie exchange–sounds like fun! Became a follower so maybe I’ll join in next year! No magic words on choosing the quilting other than I just try not to overthink it. I’m not sure there’s a wrong answer so I try to go with the first one. But I do understand on some projects that you want it to be *just* right!

    love the moose and the sisters! looking forward to seeing the cookie exchange I didn’t hear about it until a couple days ago when some started to mention it

  13. I love the left option for the postcards runner! I know you’ll come up with something; sometimes you just have to wait for the quilt to tell you what it is. I’m curious about your Hop project. Enjoy Thanksgiving!

  14. Vicki in MN says:

    After seeing your drawings for the Alaska runner quilting, I like the straight lines on the left! Happy Turkey day my friends!

  15. I always enjoy those blog hops! I didn’t join in myself this year, but I’ll look forward to your post, Roseanne! I bet the cross hatch quilting on your postcard tablerunner will be perfect.

    Can’t wait to see what you have in store for those littles!! Love the post card quilting ideas, I actually like the lines over the cross-hatch, and you know how I love CH!!

  17. Laura says:

    The sisters quilt is looking great, Rosanne! I never have a plan for quilting a project, either, and I often end up quilting a whole lot more complicated a design than I need to (Such is my current project…why change now?) 🙂

  18. Love how the sister’s quilt is coming together. Good luck with all your projects Have a very happy Thanksgiving.

    I love hearing you are participating in the blog hop again. Who doesn’t love quilts and cookies?? Why does it seem deciding the quilting is always the hardest part of the process? I can’t wait to see what you land on.

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
