To-Do Tuesday #110

 Good morning, and welcome, November!  I'm joining in with Linda and friends at Texas Quilt Gal for the To-Do Tuesday link-up, sharing what I've been working on and my new list for this coming week.

It's been a good sewing week for me, and I've gotten a lot done!  One thing on my list was to get started quilting my Positivity quilt, and I have been working on that the last couple days.

I'm using the serpentine stitch on my machine, and the seam lines as a guide,
so I don't think it will take too many more sessions to get the quilting done.

I also finished the pieced border on Autumn Jubilee.  I love this little quilt!  Right now it's about 36 inches square and a good size for my table.  

The final thing on my to-do list from last week was to take a look at my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects for the year and evaluate what needs to be done with them to move them forward into finished quilts.  I did that and you can read about it in my Saturday post here.

So, for the coming week:  
  • Keep quilting Positivity and make the binding!
  • Keep working on RSC projects, especially the Crumb Hearts quilt and the Wonky Stars mini.
  • Finish the embroidery on Pumpkin Patch and add a border.  Just a little bit left to stitch - a star and the moon!
Do you like the blackbird's hat?
I thought that was so cute!

Have a great week, everyone!

36 inches is a good size for the table quilt I think. the pumpkin patch embroidery is cute. Hope your mom is settled in now and doing ok.

I love your bits of purple in your Autumn Jubilee table topper! Love the blackbird’s hat! Your satin stitches are awesome! That’s a difficult one for me to get the edges even and smooth looking!

I love that serpentine stitch, and it looks so pretty on your plus quilt! Will you add the extra border on the Autumn Jubilee quilt? It looks beautiful!
Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday!

The serpentine stitch on Positivity looks great. I also really like the progress you’ve made on Autumn Jubilee. And I love your Pumpkin Patch embroidery project, especially the blackbird’s hat!

I love using the serpentine stitch for quilting - it just adds a little fun when you don't want to just do straight lines. I think your Autumn Jubilee quilt is one of my favorites - it looks perfect on your table!

The serpentine stitch will give some moviment to your quilting on Positivity quilt. Autunm Jubilee is looking perfect for your table and that embroidery is so cute. Great progress on all your projects. Have a great stitching new week, Diann.

Love your Autumn Jubilee quilt. I finally started piecing mine this week. Here's to a good start on a new month!

I love all your rainbow projects! Even though you don't care for the chain patches, they would probably make adorable baby quilts. Surely you have a connection locally that would use them? And all the other projects are smashing, especially Autumn Jubilee!!

Hi Diann! LOVE how Autumn Jubilee has turned out!! And the close-up shot of Positivity makes us appreciate the fabrics all the more. Good job on your list. Pumpkin Patch is so darn cute. ~smile~ Roseanne
