I am joining the weekly To-Do Tuesday Linky Party hosted by Chris at ChrisKnits.
To-Do for the week of May 18th-24th:
- Bind my Ombré Star quilt that is for my great-niece, Sophia’s high school graduation in June. √Done
- Work on my Watercolor quilt. √Done
- Continue to work on my Two Cranes Sashiko project. √Done
I finished binding Sophia’s quilt on Sunday but did not have time to take a full photo of this quilt. I took a quick pic that shows the binding, the quilting (Simple Stars by Sew Shabby Quilting) and the backing fabric (Jennifer Sampou’s Chalk and Charcoal Wide-Capri).
I did work a little more on my Watercolor project but ran into a snag when I tried to make the mirror image units. I’m thinking it is likely that I missed out on some important information when I took Audrey’s class on May 16th. Since I will be able to retake the class in the future, I’ve decided to put this project away until I retake the class.
I made more headway on my Two Cranes Sashiko project and should be able to finish it this coming week.
Quilt Recipients Update:
I have a few pics to share with you of recent recipients of my quilts. First up is my amazing great-niece Rachel with her mini quilt that arrived on her graduation day:
Next is sweet Baby Lucy on her Cat & Birds quilt:
And finally here is a photo of adorable Baby Harper on her Ombré Quilt:
To-Do for the week of May 25th-31st:
- Take a photo of Ombré Star.
- Finish my Two Cranes Sashiko project and write my May 2021 OMG Finish post.
- Attach a hanging sleeve to my Planner Quilt.

What great gifts and all of your recipients are lovely!
So fun to see your quilts with their recipients! Looking forward to seeing Sophia’s quilt. Hope you get the snafu figured out for the watercolor quilt.
Congratulations on getting the high school graduation quilt finished! The quilting and backing look perfect for it! So fun to see quilt recipients with their special quilts, too.
Hi Mary! WOW, that backing fabric is a perfect match for your ombre quilt. At first I thought it was the front fabric! I love that quilting design of Simple Stars. I want to something similar on my QOV except they will be freehand and not looking that fantastic. LOVE all the photos! Congrats again to Rachel – she looks happy with the gift and to be finished with her studies. And baby Lucy and Harper both look quite comfy on their new quilts. Great work! ~smile~ Roseanne
What wonderful action photos of the quilt recipients!!! Thanks for linking with To-Do!
Your pictures of the recipients with their quilts are precious! How lovely! May they enjoy them for years to come!
