To-Do Tuesday #79

Happy Tuesday!   I'm checking in with Chris and friends at Chrisknits to share my to-do list for the week.   I finished up my sunflower squirrel project on Saturday evening and here it is on my table!

Also on my list from last week was working on the next rounds of the Stay at Home Round Robin.  I ended up combining round 5 (wonky stars) with round 6 (log cabins). This photo is showing rounds 5/6 three-quarters of the way sewn on (which makes it 34.5 x 34.5), plus Round 7 (pinwheels) just getting started.



















No progress on the blog hop project because my bigger Pfaff is still in the shop.  I may have to start quilting it on the smaller Janome.  It's a baby quilt size so that wouldn't be too hard to do.

So what's on this week's list?

  • Keep going on the Stay at Home Round Robin - the final linky party starts March 29th!
  • March is green month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so it's time to sew some blocks with green.  So far I've just gotten out the green scrap bin and started on some crumb blocks

  • Quilt the blog hop project - keeping that on the list!
  • Stay away from squirrel projects, if possible.  🤣
Have a great day, everyone!

Your squirrel finish is so bright and cheery! (Sunflowers are our state flower and I just love them. I plant tons of all colors around the garden every year to bring the gold finches in and then I give the heads to the chickens for treats as they die.). Your RR is looking great! Good luck this week!

I just LOVE those corners with the logs & stars! Adorable table mat too but, then again, I'm partial to dresdens!

LOVE that Sunflower table runner and how you combined Round 5 and 6 of the SAHRR!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with those lovely bits of GREEN for the RSC.

No squirrels?? Where's the fun in that? I like the way you combined the wonky stars and log cabins. It's so interesting to see how everyone has adapted the theme of the week to their projects.

I'm just loving your sunflower! Wow, your SAHRR looks great - I love those corners. I might add a pinwheel border - haven't decided yet.
