To-Do Tuesday 68 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. Since Roseanne has opened the linky party a day early and my post is written, I’m posting today and then hopefully I can post about my December OMG tomorrow.

To-Do for the week of Nov 24th-Nov 30th:

  1. Sew my Color Jolt quilt top together. √ Done
  2. Write my Nov 2020 OMG Finish post. √ Done
  3. Stitch another modern Sashiko square. √ Done

To-Do #1

From completion of the last Color Jolt block to the completion of the quilt top, it just took me four days to get ‘er done! I did deviate slightly from the pattern instructions from sizing up the length and width of my paper-pieced sections to opting to take the paper off prior to sewing the sashing strips on the blocks. I like the stained glass look of the teal blue sashing against most of the blocks (with the blocks that have more blue/green in them, it is more subdued), and I think it’s very likely that I will make another version the Color Jolt Quilt again in the future.

To-Do #2

Here is a link to my November 2020 OMG Finish post with all of the blocks on my design wall.

To-Do #3

I hope everyone isn’t getting sick of my rainbow Sashiko squares! I’m planning to keep stitching one per week unless I’m up to my eyeballs hand-stitching down binding 🙂 I tried something new this week which mostly worked for me. Awhile back I downloaded Sashiko coaster patterns from Blair at Wise Craft Handmade. She has generously shared two sets of free patterns along with links to her You Tube Sashiko stitching series which I found very useful when I first tried Sashiko. They can be found Here and Here. I decided that I wanted to stitch her Fundo (Scale Weights) pattern and used a regular ball point pen on top of the pattern placed over Olympus light blue carbon paper to trace the design on some plain indigo Sashiko fabric. Some of the lines were hard to see, so I went over a few with my Clover fine white marking pen. Here’s is my Fundo rainbow Sashiko square: 

To-Do for the week of Dec 1st-Dec 7th

  1. Write my December 2020 One Monthly Goal post and make progress on that project. It’s really fun and colorful!
  2. Stitch a sixth rainbow Sashiko square.

    Hi Mayr! I am not one bit tired of seeing your Sashiko blocks. In fact, I look forward to seeing a new one each week. This Fundo block is very fun – I love how your stitches look so nice and even and the variegated thread you’ve used. This will be a beautiful project once you put them all together. What size is each block? Thanks for linking up this week even though it’s a day early. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I love the Color Jolt quilt top! Did you use a particular line of fabric for it? The Sashiko pattern is really neat, too. Thanks for sharing those links – I’d really like to try it!
