To-Do Tuesday 63 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 Oct 20th-Oct 26th:

  1. Make a Fiddlesticks block for the Kat & Cat Quilts Covered in Love Sept-Oct block drive. √ Done
  2. Finish stitching my Dahlia Sashiko project. √ Done
  3. Take Rebecca Bryan’s Wavelength mini-workshop on Oct 24th on Zoom. √ Done

To-Do #1

I had so much fun making this Fiddlesticks block that I want to make a whole quilt of this block sometime. I’ve started a leader-ender project where I am sewing pairs together from batik scraps that I will eventually sew into strips. It’s not too late to make a block to donate to the current Covered in Love block drive (see link above).

To-Do #2

I finished my Dahlia Sashiko project that I plan to make into a small pillow. It was fun to stitch, but I’m looking forward to making some quicker Sashiko coasters I may (or may not) give away for gifts 🙂

To-Do #3

I really enjoyed Rebecca Bryan’s Wavelength mini-workshop this past Saturday and took a lot of notes, but I did not start my own version yet. I’m leaning toward making the throw-size rainbow version, and I just don’t have the time or the space to start a large improv project right now. For now it will go on my Quilty Bucket list.

To-Do for the week of Oct 27th-Nov 2nd:

  1. I’ve started another Sunflowers placemats/table runner project as a belated housewarming gift for my friend, Amanda. This time I’m using a tan grunge fabric for background. I hope to get all the blocks made this coming week and then I’ll share a pic.
  2. I’m working on some modern Sashiko coasters. I should have one finished in the next several days. It’s a great World Series-watching project!
  3. Decide on my November One Monthly Goal.

    I love your Sashiko project. I just learned the technique and now I want to make a long table runner for my table, I just need to get the stitch length down.


  2. I love the Fiddlesticks piece so charming…hugs, Julierose


  3. The fiddlesticks block is so fun. The dahlia Sashiko is looking really nice too! I need to dig my Sashiko out and keep working on it. You have some good goals for the week!

    Well, fiddlesticks. I like those blocks, too. And it would look so cool – a whole quilt of them, Mary! Make one, make one, make one. In your colors – teal, aqua . . . you know you want to. And I meant to make some to send Cat/Kat. LOVE, love, love your Dahlia. I am drawn to that type of stitching too, but have been trying to stay clear. No squirrels. However, Sue does need a new hand project soon . . . HAHA! Thanks for all the wonderful fun and for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I sent my Fiddlesticks blocks off to Kat last week! I made a yellow one too!


  6. I love those Fiddlesticks blocks, and plan to make some for CIL, too. Guess I’d better get on that! Yours turned out great! The Sashiko stitching looks very enjoyable.

    Neat Fiddlesticks. Your Dahlia Sashiko sure will make a nice pillow.
