To-Do Tuesday #56

 Good morning!   I'm checking in today with my weekly to-do list and linking up with Roseanne and friends for the To-Do Tuesday linky party at Home Sewn By Us.

I got a lot done this past week!  A small finish - my X's and O's mini quilt/placemat.

The rainbow color gradient quilt is basted, and quilting started.  

No progress since last Friday, but at least it's started!

All the red HSTs are done for the zigzag row, and ready to sew together.  I even had some time to play with Joy's Mini Magic Star blocks.  You can see both sets of blocks below.

I need 24 mini star blocks for the tote bag idea I have, and 16 are made.  
The last 8 are halfway there, and won't take long to finish up!

So my list for the coming week is more of the same!

1.  Keep quilting the rainbow quilt.
2.  Sew the zigzag row together.
3.  Make some progress on my tote bag idea.

And one more:
4.  Make the September Color Challenge Block from Patterns by Jen.

Have a great week!

Hi Diann! You did a great job on your list this week. My favorite are always the zig zag rows - just one more color for the year? Is that correct? Good luck on this week's list and thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

I really like how you set the rainbow quilt! Just cornerstones in the middle! Quilting is going well too!

Nice progress last week, Diann!! Hoping you're as productive this week, as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the Mini Magic Star project moved along! :o))

looks like you made great progress this past week. I really like your color gradient piece. I like the magic star project. I made a couple but not enough to make the cool star. I was just trying it out. Must decide whether I'll make a whole (small) quilt with it or just add the blocks to my leftovers bin.

These are fun, esp the rainbow color gradient. I like the quilting choice on there!

Your X's and O's mini is so cute, I love it! Lots of fun colors in your post!!! :)

Rainbow colored gradient is delightful but not as much as those very small secondary patterns in the mini magic stars block.
