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 December 17th-December 22nd:
- Finish sewing the triangles on the Medallion Lantern blocks. – √ Done
- Start sewing the Medallion Lantern blocks into rows. – √ Done
- Finish writing my 2020 Quilting Goals post. – √ Done
I used two different golds for the triangles to form the diamonds in the center of the Medallion Lantern blocks. The gold absolutely shows up inside the grey lanterns which I’ve found is a good thing (looks like a light in the lantern—stealing that description from Diann with Little Penguin Quilts), but any discrepancies with lining up the triangle points are also highlighted. I’ve definitely ripped out and fixed a fair amount of seams.
I‘ve actually gotten four of the six rows made, but I’m not going to show them yet. I’ll write a December ‘19 OMG Finished post in a day or two and show a pic of the first four rows. I was going to do a two-fer with my TGIFF post that I wrote for the TGIFF linky party that Roseanne hosted this past Friday, but I have more info to share and a better photo, so I’ll feel better writing a specific OMG finish post.
I really enjoy writing these yearly quilting goal posts to reflect on where I’ve been in my quilting journey and re-evaluate where I want to go in the future. Of course after I think I’m finished and have published the post, I think of one more thing that I wanted to include. In this case, I’m thinking of making a temperature quilt for 2020. I wanted to make one for 2019 but got way too busy. Maybe I’ll be able to get one done for the coming year.
To-Do for the week of December 24th through December 30th
- Get ‘er done! I need to get my Medallion Lantern quilt top finished! I am honestly tired of working on it and definitely of talking/writing about it!
- Cut my backing fabric, World Globes Seven Seas, to size for long-arm quilting.
I’d like to take a moment to wish all who celebrate Christmas, a wonderful Christmas.

Hi Mary! Let me first say thank you for linking up because I usually forget. Is the globe/world fabric for the backing for the lanterns quilt? I just ADORE that fabric. Ooh-la-la. There is nothing I love more than a good map to study. And the colors! I look forward to seeing the final pictures before it is off to be quilted. And also, to reading your goal post. I always think of some additional items to add especially now that it is posted. Merry Christmas Eve to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
