I am joining the weekly To-Do Tuesday Linky Party hosted by my friend, Roseanne, at Home Sewn By Us. I find goal-setting to be extremely helpful to get more accomplished, and since I’m always trying to get one more project done, I’m all for a little extra push and/or encouragement.
To-Do for the week of November 12th-November 18th:
- Finish binding Dimension in Dusk. – √ Done
- Start binding my Lumen quilt. – √ Done
- Quilt and finish a second Penguin Party Pillow for my friend, Alicia. – √ Done
I did finish binding Dimension in Dusk but haven’t had a chance to get an outside photo of this finished quilt. I really love the Time Warp quilting pattern (quilting done by My Long Arm Quilting Service). Here is a pic of it on the recliner in the living room.
For my Lumen quilt, I am over halfway done hand-stitching the binding to the back which is Henry Glass Radiance Black/Multi fabric available at Backside Fabrics. Here is a photo that shows a peek of both the front and back of the quilt:
I again straight-line quilted this second Penguin Party Pillow that I will be giving my friend, Alicia, but this time quilted the straight lines half an inch apart which is twice the amount of work than the one-inch lines I did last week-end, LOL, plus a fair number of threads to bury since I decided not to quilt through the penguin. Instead I opted to stitch-in-the-ditch around the penguin, and I left a little of the aqua fabric unquilted to set off the face and fins. The print that I used for envelope backing in the second photo below is a diagonal checkered aqua that is suitable for this pillow to be out year round.
To-Do for the week of November 19th through November 25th
- Finish binding my Lumen quilt.
- Start to work on the BIG project that I’ve mentioned a couple times in recent blog posts. I will be making a queen-sized Metro Medallion quilt for my stepson, Drew that will be a combo this year Christmas/next year Birthday present. This is a beautiful quilt with curved blocks made with the Quick Curve Rule by Sew Kind of Wonderful. The focus this coming week will be to familiarize myself with the ruler and make sense of the pattern. I will definitely cut some fabric and possibly make one block. Below are the fabrics that I’ll be using in this quilt which are a mixture of a few fabrics from my stash and some I’ve been acquiring in the last few months. The map fabric that I pinned to my design board will be the quilt backing for my travel-loving stepson.
