To-Do Tuesday, June 21, 2022

True confession time.

Organizing and cleaning my sewing room has left me with a few surprises. Who can raise their hand in agreement with that?!

Here’s what I found.

- 18 quilt tops waiting for quilting. I thought I had 13!

- 12 projects started, all at various stages. Why do I do this?

- 6 projects planned with pattern, fabrics, misc parts neatly packed and waiting for my attention. I must stop going to quilt shows and quilt shops where I am tempted with all the new things!

- Numerous projects earmarked to make for charity. Also in various stages.

- Rulers that need patterns, and patterns that need rulers. I was able to pair some rulers to patterns for future projects. Ha ha! Like I need any future projects!

I’m kind of mad at myself for letting this happen. Tops not quilted, projects not completed. Now that I’ve seen just how much I have going on in my sewing room, it is time to get serious about completing  these quilts!

Will there be new projects to tempt me and add to my list? Most likely! But if I’m finishing some projects, I won’t feel too bad about starting something new. Oh! And those ‘new’ projects I already purchased? Those would be fun to get into! At least that is what I’m telling myself.

Did I do anything on my weekly To-Do list?

To-Do Tuesday, June 14, 2022

  1. Work on Week 16 of Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden.  ✔️
  2. Sew aprons made from my dad’s shirts. ✔️
  3. Work on nephew’s t-shirt quilt if there is any time left  ✗
  4. Play! template quilt quilting  ✗
Here’s my progress -
1. Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden
Week 16 almost complete. 1/2″ EPP
2. Dad’s shirts to aprons. I have all the pieces cut, and three aprons completed.
And then with all the organizing, I decided to work on a UFO. It’s a whole cloth  table runner.
There are four of these circles to quilt with the grid in the center. I’m free motion quilting each one differently.
Second design.
Third design. One more to go, and then binding.
I also found this already quilting whole cloth table runner that only needed the binding to complete it.
This is quilted with a blue variegated King Tut thread. And binding is a blue Stonehenge print.

Another closeup.
Gifted to my son and DIL. She loves blues!

That’s all the stitching this week. Organizing takes time!

    Time, we never seem to have enough, and UFO’s Too many. I dread to do a tally of mine, I do have fabric sorted for a new project but will not be starting that for a while. Love the stitching on the table runner.

    18 quilt tops! I’m impressed. Your FMQ is amazing, and the whole cloth looks beautiful. Good going on the aprons!
