To-Do #1

I wrote my December 2022 One Monthly Goal post earlier this week (link to post here).

To-Do #2

I did cut and glue one inch Kaleidoscope fabric swatches used for my Lumen quilt in my 2022 planner in preparation for the #2023PlanningParty hosted by Quilting Jetgirl that will start on Dec 12th. I only used 24 of the 40 Original Kaleidoscope fabrics which I numbered from 1-40 with Cherry being designated (1) and Pine being designated (40). I used the numbers on the coloring page provided in the Lumen pattern to create a roadmap for color placement. I really like creating swatch pages for my projects, especially those that are color gradient because it’s possible that I will make future projects using these fabrics. But it does take time, and I’ve only made them for a few projects. So many tradeoffs in life!!!

To-Do #3

I finished four Sew Tiny embellished pine tree ornaments over the weekend and got them in the mail yesterday. No pic since they look the same as the ones in the last week’s post.

To-Do for the week of Dec 6th-12th:

  1. Sew October flying geese units into columns.
  2. Finish the five Sashiko coasters for my December 2022 OMG.
  3. Finish two pink Sew Tiny pine tree ornaments.

Linking up to Texas Quilt Gal: To-Do Tuesday.

  1. That is a great way to put your planner to use, and for a record if you want to use those colors again. Lumen is such an amazing quilt – one of my favorites!


  2. Swatch pages do take time and effort, but can be really worth it depending on the project. I hope you have a wonderful week!


  3. Love your swatch page in your planner! I’ve done that, too, when I thought I would need help keeping track of where different fabrics or colors went. Looking forward to seeing how this quilt comes together!

    Hi Mary! How incredibly cool. I cannot believe you made your own swatch book. COOL. This will be so handy for you in the future. Not only for another ombre-type project but also matching a print or other fabric. I wish I had kept better notes on the solids I used for Postcard. Ooh, pink tiny trees! Those sound cute. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


  5. You had a great week last week. Good for you. Planning takes time but you will probably find it helpful in the upcoming weeks while you work on the project. Looking forward to seeing some of your tiny trees.


  6. Oh man, now I want to do a planner like that. That is the best planning idea I think I’ve seen. Do you use fabric glue for the swatches? Thank you so much for sharing with To Do Tuesday!
