To-Do Tuesday #184

Good morning, friends!  It's Tuesday again, and I'm sharing my progress from last week, and my to-do list for the week to come.  Big thanks to Carol at Quilt Schmilt for hosting the To-Do Tuesday link-up!

On my list last week was to find a good sashing fabric for the Rainbow Neighbourhood, and I did!  I've started cutting the strips and have sewn exactly two!

I need 24 sashing strips and 16 cornerstones.  A decision still to be made - will the cornerstones be a consistent color or a rainbow of color?

I also worked on some zipper blocks for a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project - they're fast and fun!

On this week's list: 
  • Stay focused on getting the sashing and cornerstones sewn on the house blocks.
  • Make some progress on my June Table Scraps project, which will be made out of these two orphan blocks.

  • I'm keeping it simple this week.  We have one of our sons here visiting for awhile, and I'm sharing my sewing studio with him.  There may not be a lot of time or space to sew!
Have a great week!

the blocks are all looking great - yes it moves slower when sharing a sewing room - will you be able to move your sewing machine to another room? I wasn't able to when I shared mine a couple weeks ago

Oh your Table Scraps is going to be so pretty! It’s hard to sew when there are extra people in the house! At least that is my experience! And now there are outside chores and social times to be experienced!

Exciting getting to the sashing stage with the house blocks. Love the zipper blocks, think that's my first time seeing such blocks. Enjoy your son's visit.

Your house blocks look amazing, Diann and I just love the zipper blocks. You are tempting me again into another project. Lol. Happy quilting.

I so love your blocks, Diann. I wish I had your accuracy for cutting. I' m quite anxious about these sashings. I also love your embroidered blocks. Always lovely to visit here.
