To-Do Tuesday #138

 My biggest accomplishment of the week!

The PopStar quilt top is finished!

Just today (Monday), I popped into Joann's and found a backing fabric for it.  White stars on a light blue background.

The finished quilt parade starts on June 15th, 
so that gives me two weeks to get this one all done.

Along the way, I did finish up the green basket blocks I had on my list last week, too.  Unfortunately, I don't have any updated photos of those blocks, but I will include them in my end of the week post.

So, what's on this week's list?
  • Get PopStar layered and basted for quilting.
  • Start the quilting.
  • Get started on blue blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.   Blue is the color for June.  That shouldn't be too hard, seeing as how these are the scraps on my cutting board!
I apologize for this terrible photo!  These are the leftover blues from PopStar, 
and the top photo in this post is much truer to their pretty color.

Those are the *have tos* on my list for the week.  But if there's time, I'd like to play with some squirrels that have been knocking on my sewing room door.  These will be projects on my June list, for example:
  • a summer mug rug for my mom
  • a tabletopper for my son for his living room
  • a mini quilt from Kelly Young's book, Scrappy Improv Quilting
  • or maybe play with this fun pile for a gingham tablerunner?

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.

Wonderful quilt! Those scraps will be something fun, I'm sure.

Oh I think you should just drop everything and do the gingham runner, those fabrics look perfect for it!! It really won't take long:)

Linda said...

Your squirrels are very polite to knock, mine just barge right in. ;) Popstar looks fantastic! Doesn't Joann's almost always have just what you need? I've been impressed with the fabrics I've found there this past year.
Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!

What a striking star! Love the play of the blues. And that red pile will make a darling gingham piece.

Pop stars looks great! And mini projects are so fun. I hope to get to some of them soon.

Ooh! I can’t wait to see the finish on Pop Stars! The colors are yummy! Looks like you have a busy week planned.
I’m a big fan of gingham, so looking forward to seeing that fabric used!

The Popstar quilt is fabulous and the backing fabric looks perfect for it. Good luck with starting the quilting of it.
