To-Do Tuesday February 8, 2022

Last week the snow arrived! About 7 inches at my house, but more like 12 inched a half hour north at my daughter’s house. Last night we received just a dusting more. I do love snow!

Here is the progress I made in quilting this past week.

To-Do Tuesday February 1, 2022

  1. Continue piecing Nebula background  ✔️ cutting & some sewing
  2. Slow stitching EPP Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden ✔️
  3. I started prepping another quilt last year to make this year – before I jumped onto the Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden wagon. I’d like to see if I could do one block a week for this 42 block Granny’s Garden quilt by Lori Holt. ✔️

1. Nebula – last year’s BOM. I’m working on the background.

Pieces cut and stitched. Slow going, but moving ahead.

2. EPP Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Week One completed

Week Two completed

Week Three progress.

These are 1/2″ hexies. I’m behind, but supplies did not arrive until about week two. And I’ve not attached Week One & Two together. I’ll get there eventually!

3. Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Block One of 42. Progress! I am rethinking the construction. Instead of doing one block a week, I might prep all the back ground circles first. Then stems and leaves. Otherwise I’m doing a lot of thread switching for each different fabric color. And yes, I know I could use invisible thread, just not going there … yet.

I’ve selected two labor intensive quilts for this year!  My goal for this week will be the same as last week. Progress on the three quilts.

    Love your little flower! Block one down! That sounds like a good plan btw.

    Love the flower! Yes your plan does make sense. I’ve not sewn with invisible thread since probably the 1980s, and I did not like sewing with it. I suppose thread has probably improved since then though. Love the fabrics for Nebula, and the EPP pieces are so pretty and precise.
    Thanks for linking up with To Do Tuesday!

    That flower block is gorgeous. I can’t wait to see the quilt.
