Last week

I linked up with Roseanne & Sue from Home Sewn by Us with my To-Do List.  Oh me … I Image result for smiley faces emojijust can’t resist this linky party!!!  I’m an obsessive list maker.  Most of the time, my lists are WAY beyond what I can reasonably accomplish in a day, week or month.  However, since this list is public, I am going to attempt to make it reasonable.  I succeeded this past week.

  1. Work on October’s Island Batik Challenge  worked on it
  2. Prep several 52 blocks in 52 weeks 2 blocks prepped
  3. Sandwich “S&W Star” Quilt done
  4. Quilt “S&W Star” Quilt  started – picture belowIMG_5603.JPG

This week

  1. Finish October’s Island Batik Challenge
  2. Prep 2 blocks from 52 blocks in 52 weeks
  3. Sew 2 blocks from 52 blocks in 52 weeks
  4. Finish at least 2 blocks from “Smith Mountain Morning”
  5. Quilt “S&W Star” Quilt

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. You’ve done an amazing job on your PhD list! Mine hasn’t seen much progress, but I’m hopeful that there will be more before the end of the year. I’m not much of one for lists. I like to set one or two priorities at the beginning of the month and then just do what needs to be done on those. I tend to loose weekly lists for some reason. Good luck with your weekly list. It obviously works for you with all that progress so far this year.

  2. I’m a list person too, that is why I like the to-do link up. I’ve gone back to look at some of your posts to see the projects you have been working on. And Wow! what a wonderful trip you took with your sister!

  3. Hi Gail! Thanks so much for linking up. I’m with you on the love of making lists. Great job on last week’s to-dos. You’re ahead of the game on the October IBA, but I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve been asked to do. I’m wondering which two blocks you made from the 52 challenge? Are you making them randomly or do you have fabrics selected to use? Just curious – I’m printing the patterns each week. I think I missed one in there so I’ll have 51 blocks. Maybe only 48 because that would make for a better layout in my mind. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      October’s challenge is a table topper / runner with a holiday theme … and it has to include applique! With my embroidery machine, I’m no longer calling it “CRap-applique! It should be done soon!!!
      I’m doing the blocks in order … I only prepped 2 blocks last week … didn’t sew them. With one of the blocks, when you follow the directions, you actually end up making 2 blocks … so I may, or may not end up with 53 blocks. I’m using my blue scraps along with a light blue constant. It will be a blue quilt. Not sure what I will do for a layout – sashing? on-point? still have lots of time to decide! Still have oodles of blocks to make!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
