To-Do Tuesday #91

Good morning!  I'm checking in with Chris and friends at Chrisknits to share my to-do list for the week. 

 I'm getting close to a finish on Harmony, my hand-pieced quilt project!  Just a few more inches to go on the binding, and it will be done.  I think I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer last night!

This will be quickly finished tonight!

Progress has been made on quilting Rainbow Strings, too.  The top is so busy that you can't even tell any quilting has been done, so I'll show you a peek at the back instead.

Still working on those large diamond shapes!

Among other things that I worked on last week, I did also finish up the last of the 16 arrows needed for Follow Your Own Path!  I was going to put on this week's list to cut the 5.5 x 9.5 background rectangles, but I started working on that this morning (Monday) and it went so quickly that I'm done with that.  Look!

So on this week's list:
  • Keep quilting Rainbow Strings!  I'm going to make a goal to finish this quilt by the end of June.
  • Make progress on the FYOP quilt top construction.
  • Make two more red exclamation marks for Full Stop, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2021 sampler.  I've completed 5, but would like 7.  They also need to be sewn together into a row.
  • Make some time to play with my purple scraps.  Purple is the RSC color for June.  I don't have much purple, so I may have to do a bit of stash enhancing.  😉
Oh, and get my Hands2Help quilt donations packed up and mailed off.  That should be doable!

Good luck with your goals for this week.

Good progress, Diann! Good thing you stopped when you were tired. No sewing with sharp things when one is tired, you don't want to be snoozing with a needle! LOL

Wonderful progress, can't wait to see your hand quilted piece. Good luck with your weekly goals! Thanks for linking up with a late To-Do.

Hi Diann! Your arrows look fab! I love your choice for the background fabric. It looks stunning. Your quilting looks nice on the Rainbow Strings quilt top, too. Great job! ~smile~ Roseanne

Oh your arrows are looking so good! Hand-quilting makes me sleepy, too. (nothing puts me to sleep like knitting tho! lol). Great progress, and good luck in the coming week!

I love the background on the arrows quilt! Harmony looks sooooo pretty.
