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 26th-December 2nd:
- Make at least eight more Medallion Lantern blocks using the Metro Medallion pattern. – √ Done
I was able to get 13 more Medallion Lantern blocks done this week. In the pics below you might notice some different fabrics than what was shown in my initial fabric pull photo that I shared a few weeks ago. My best friend, Mary, is very involved in the design of this quilt as well as helping to press fabric and seams. She found and ordered some additional fabric for this project, and I pulled a couple more fabrics from my stash to give more balance. We opted to use some fabrics only once, most fabrics twice, and two of our favorites will be used three times as a central focus in the quilt.
To-Do for the week of December 10th through December 16th
- What a surprise—I plan to make more Medallion Lantern blocks!!! I hope to finish making the rest of these blocks in the coming week (only 10 more blocks). I’ve been pushing pretty hard to get these blocks finished, and I noticed Sunday morning that I was making some stupid mistakes, including pressing a couple curves the wrong way and one rather major faux pas that could have resulted in injury as I left my rotary cutter open on my cutting table while pinning blocks, with my fingers just a couple inches from the sharp blade. Sometimes I need to dial it back a little and not be SO goal oriented! I imagine there are plenty of people who can relate :).
