Good morning, and happy Tuesday! I'm joining in with To-Do Tuesday hosted by Linda at Texas Quilt Gal. It's a great way to keep track of what needs to be done in my sewing room each week!
An important item on my list last week was to finish up the gift for my local quilt group's gift exchange (coming right up this Thursday!), which I finally got really going on over the weekend. It's almost finished, and I'll share the whole thing in a finished post later in the week, but here's a little peek!
Along the way I dropped everything and made this gnome mini. It was an "I just had to" moment!
There's been progress on the Arizona tablerunner gift, too. Block #1 is made, and HSTs for block #2 are started.
The poor Frosties are still being neglected, and I probably won't touch them in the coming week either. I think I will put them in time-out until after Christmas! There will be lots of winter left to finish their borders and get them quilted.
On the coming week's list:
- During the week, some deliveries I was waiting for happened - 4 yards of wide backing from Connecting Threads and basting spray coming from Amazon both arrived. So I'm hoping to get one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2022 quilt tops sandwiched for quilting in the next week. First up is the Bloom basket quilt. I got the backing piece cut - it needs some pressing and the batting cut to size also.
The backing is called Sprinkles - so perfect for the kind of quilts I make!
- Keep working on the Arizona runner. One block each week is a good pace for me, and then the final construction will be pretty simple.
- I'm participating in a blog hop in January, and need to get going on the project for that. The pattern I chose is fairly simple, and will work as a leader/ender, so I'll integrate it into my sewing that way for now.
Thanks for visiting on To-Do Tuesday! Have a great week!
