To-Do Tuesday #48 Weekly Progress Update

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 July 6th-13th:

  1. Work on another secret Christmas quilt. √ Done
  2. Decide which workshops/lectures I’m going to sign up for for QuiltCon Together in February 2021.  √ Done

To-Do #1

Below are a couple of in-progress photos I took of quilt blocks that are part of the quilt that Mary and I are making for her sister, Kathy, for Christmas this year. I’ll be able to show you the finished quilt in November. I bet many of you recognize the pattern. I apologize for the extra white space in my Pic Collage. It looks like I have a lot of extra returns, and I don’t! But aren’t the deer and the penguin in their little houses adorable!?!

To-Do #2

Here’s what I believe I will sign up for tomorrow for QuiltCon Together in February 2021, but I reserve the right to change my mind up until I actually register!

Mini Workshops:

  1. Quilt Design with Yvonne Fuchs
  2. Serendipity Blocks in EQ8 with Cheryl Brickey
  3. Y-Seams Not Cry-Seams with Libs Elliott
  4. Rainbow Sun with Sylvia Schaefer

Lectures

  1. Secondary Designs and Beyond with Jen Carlton Bailly
  2. Improv Through Many Eyes with Yvonne Fuchs, Chawne Kimber, Anne Sullivan, and Melanie Tuazon
  3. Quilt Photography Overview with Julie Schoening

To-Do for the week of July 14th-July 20th:

  1. Work on a Drunkard’s Path quilt. This is a new project that I just started this past weekend, and I’ll share more about it next week.
  2. Decide how I’m going to finish my four Sashiko coasters. I may finish them very simply (sew the backing to the coaster right sides together, turn right side out, and slip stitch the opening), or I may opt to add a binding to them using Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl’s Binding Mini Mini Quilts Tutorial. I have to be honest, binding a four-inch coaster (four of them!) doesn’t sound appealing at all, but binding would give them a more finished look.
  3. In this age of online learning, I have signed up for Amy of During Quiet Time’s Improv Paper Piecing Class. It is a self-paced class, and this week I plan to review Lesson 2: How to Section and Number Your Paper Pieced Block.

  1. Binding those coasters won’t be so bad, and Yvonne’s tips should help. Put all the bindings on in one sitting, then do the hand stitching while you watch a show. They’ll be done before you know it. You have some fun classes in mind for QuiltCon – I haven’t even looked at what’s being offered!

    Hi Mary! Hmm. Binding a four-inch square. Nope, not for me but you do what makes your heart sing! It’ll be quick, that’s for sure. I’m looking forward to seeing your Drunkard’s Path project. I just love the look of that deer in his house – he looks so proud. And that penguin!! Good luck with your list this week and thanks for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. The classes you’re signing up for sound interesting! I don’t think binding little things is all that hard, but it’s helpful to have a tutorial by someone with lots of experience. Good luck with your coasters!
