To-Do Tuesday Linky #60 and Weekly Update

Join us for the 60th linky party post and the 180th weekly to-do list.  Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.”

To-Do for the week of September 22nd through 28th:

  1. Finish up the red/white/blue table runner – √ done
  2. Layer and quilt Andrea’s snowman runner √ done
  3. Finish the next block in Melva’s Pieces From the Past SAL – √ done

To-Do #1

The red/white/blue table runner is all complete and ready to be used. For the quilting we chose a per-programmed stitch on my Elna sewing machine. After enlarging the length and width of the stitch to the maximum, the actual quilting went very quickly. We finished the piece with a navy small star print.

To-Do #2

Andrea’s snowman table runner is all complete and ready for her to start enjoying anytime now. Sue wanted this quilted with a straight-line stitch which I was happy to do. Thread by Missouri Star Quilt Company was used in Sunset Grey which has a slight purplish-hue to it. We thought that would less harsh on the black fabrics yet provide a little definition to the snowman faces.

To-Do #3

We’ve been sewing along with Melva’s Pieces From the Past SAL since March. She just recently released the paper piecing Pine Burr block. I had the best of intentions of not only sewing this block but the alternate version as well. While all four sets of the necessary templates were printed on newsprint, it seems that our littles were fascinated with the paper. I took the crumpled and torn papers as a sign to not make the paper pieced version and instead, made two alternate blocks.

We could now sew Row 4 together but we’re not sure what fabric we’re using for sashing. Row 4 calls for block 5, 12, and 7 but block 7 gave me fits so we’re using two of block 12 instead.

September OMG

We are fortunate to have finished our September OMG project which is the Wonky Wonk quilt. We shared all the details last Friday, and with the completion of this project we have been participating in Patty’s monthly linky party for three years now!

    Seriously pretty star runner! I love that quilting stitch and the pattern!

  2. That pre-programmed stitch on your red/white/blue table runner looks great, and I love the straight line quilting with the Sunset Grey thread on the snow man table topper. It looks very classy! And Wonky Wonk just has such a happy feel to it. Looking forward to seeing what you’re going to choose as your Oct OMG goal. Take care, Mary.

    Love the snowman runner and the Wonky Quilt is awesome.
    Have a great day!

    Oh everything is finishing up nicely here! The snowmen, the table runner and the wonky! I’m not too big into wonky (am I a little OCD?) but that’s pretty darned cute!

    Oh, love the story of the Pine Burr pattern… and the reason for two of the X-Quartette blocks. Sorry about the Modern Broken Dish block… my bad. 🙁

    You have certainly been busy this month. I love the snowman runner. It is so cheery and the straight line quilting is just right. Melva’s blocks turned out lovely and the littles probably saved you from a fate worse than death (LOL). I do love paper piecing but sometimes the matching intersections get too bulky since I can’t necessarily press seams open. Hope you have a great week.

  7. Brenda @ Songbird Designs says:

    Great finishes, Roseanne! Love all of them!

  8. Sharon says:

    I so like the simple quilting on your projects! I’m hoping to straight line quilt my latest little table topper and post about it later today. Do you have a new snowman pattern, or repeating the one shown above?

  9. great check marks – I really like those alternate blocks ! good luck for this week!

  10. Linda Mincher says:

  11. chrisknits says:

    Everything is just perfect!! I love all the new runners. I have plans to make a Pine Burr someday, but it is not this day!!

  12. Vicki in MN says:

    You had a great week! Your patriotic quilting is perfect, like a flag waving. And well you know I love all snowmen so of course your snowman runner is perfect!

  13. Lots of check marks on your list this week, Roseanne! The star runner looks great, and so does the snowman runner! I really like the quilting on both. Have a great day!

  14. Denise says:

    I really like the Wonky Wonk quilt, to me it looks vintage and I love vintage quilts. Congrats on finishing your list. I’m also loving watching your progress on Pieces from the past. Thank you for the linky party.

  15. You’ve been busy! The star runner turned out beautifully and that snowman table runner is so cute. Good luck with your stitching plans for this week.
