To-Do Tuesday #137

Good morning!   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.

Because we were away from home for a week recently, I haven't had a to-do list other than the kind you have when you return home: laundry, groceries, yard and house catch up.  In the last few days, though, I've had a chance to get back to my sewing machine and make a little progress on current projects.  Here's what's going on in my sewing room right now:

Popstar is on the design wall!
The center star is made and 3 out of 4 of the star point sections.
The four flying geese around the outside finish up the pop stars 
and will be pieced into the border.

Over on the sewing table, the pieces and parts for the fourth star point section are ready to sew, along with Bloom basket parts in green.

These will come together pretty quickly, I think!

So there you see what's on my list for the week ahead!
  • Finish up the Popstar quilt top.  Not too much left to do now.
  • Find a backing fabric for Popstar - maybe.
  • Sew Bloom baskets in green for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Sounds doable!  Have a great week, friends!

You will have those goals met in no time. Funny how so many domestic chores need doing when one gets home!

Pop Star is looking so good! I wish I had “Quilted Along”! I have been just plugging along on some other projects! I’m definitely the “tortoise” lately! :)

Pop Star is looking great. Hope you get it finished this week.

I bet your Mom wanted to hear all about your trip! Glad you got some sewing time in spite of the catch-up after being gone. Your Popstar is looking very pretty.
Thanks for sharing with To Do Tuesday!

Love the Popstar quilt, very striking. It's good to return home and get all the settling back in chores done.

Happy Tuesday, Diann. Your Popstar Quilt is looking fabulous. Gorgeous blue fabrics. These Spring/ Summer days can certainly be busy especially when you have been away from home for even a short bit. I have been missing my sewing time as well. For some reason, I have not been getting the notice when you post, I am going to have to investigate why that is happening. I hope you have a very lovely week and wonderful Memorial Day.

Hi Diann! Pop Star is really coming along nicely. You'll have it all together and into a quilt top in no time. Good luck with this week's list - you've definitely got this! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
