I am joining the weekly To-Do Tuesday Weekly Progress Update Linky Party hosted by my friend, Roseanne, at Home Sewn By Us.
To-Do for the week of February 25th-March 2nd:
- Finish binding my Stargazer (Modified) quilt. – √ Done
- Finish cutting 5” squares for Hayden’s Graduation quilt. – √ Done
- Cut Color Swatches from my The Quilter’s Field Guide to Color book by Rachel Hauser for the Quilter’s Color Quest that starts in March.– √ Done
I finished binding my Stargazer (Modified) quilt on Friday and Saturday morning I went to the local plaza park in my town and took a few pics of it. I wrote my Stargazer (Modified) Quilt Finished post later that day. Here is one of the pics I included in that post:
I got all the 5” squares cut for Hayden’s quilt on Sunday. It is my goal this month to get the quilt top finished, and I wrote about this project in my March 2020 OMG post today. Here is a pic of nine more of the squares that I’ll be including in his quilt.
I cut all the color swatches from The Quilter’s Field Guide to Color and am anxious to start the color experiments this month. Below are my swatches that are obviously not arranged in any particular order!
To-Do for the week of March 3rd-March 9th
- Cut all the solid color pieces for Hayden’s graduation quilt.
- I’m sharing this post a day early because I wanted to let you all know about Rebecca Bryan’s free Playful Color Revolution training series that starts today. I have learned so much about color from Rebecca. At the top of her Bryan House Quilts website, there is a mint green bar that says “RSVP here.” She’ll be posting daily about color this week, and at the end of the week, there will be an opportunity to join her Playful Color Quilt Guild (PCQG) where you can learn much more through many hands-on exercises, videos, hand-outs, and the opportunity to interact with other quilters who want to increase their confidence with color. One of the bonuses that is included in the PCQG is a training on ProCreate which is a sketching, painting, and illustration iPad app that can be used for quilt design. I plan to review the training information this week and start to color one of the ProCreate templates Rebecca has provided to PCQC members.
- Do the Temperature Exercises in The Quilter’s Field Guide to Color. I’ll be making Bear Paw patchwork blocks using prints (I think I just heard Roseanne gasp!) to increase my confidence in fabric selection using prints.
