To-Do Tuesday, July 12, 2022

This week I played around with ideas for a t-shirt quilt I’ll be working on for my nephew. I’ve settled on a layout, and will share it as I work on the quilt. I didn’t progress as quickly as I’d like on Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden. I missed a few evenings English Paper Piecing on it this week.

Here’s what I did do sewing wise this past week -

To-Do Tuesday, July 5, 2022

  1. Finish week 17 of Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden. And start attaching it to the growing quilt. ✔️
  2. Time to get serious about prepping t-shirts for a quilt for my nephew. That was my June One Monthly Goal and it did not happen!  ✔️
  3. Play with something – maybe a UFO – maybe the whole cloth table runner. ✗
1. Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Week 17 competed and attached to the ever growing quilt. On to prepping week 18!

2. T-shirt quilt

I took some time to measure the logos on the t-shirts to determine what sizes to cut. My nephew doesn’t want a traditional layout. After sketching out a few layouts, I think I have the one I’ll be using.  On to fusing and cutting.

The only other sewing I did this past week was hem a pair of capris.

Friday we took our grands on a steam engine train ride. The Historic 765.

Angola, IN.

My plans for this week -

To-Do Tuesday, July 12, 2022

  1. Prep week 18 and start stitching EPP for Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden.
  2. Continue work on T-shirt quilt for my nephew.
  3. Meeting with quilting friends – I’m taking along my EPP.  I’m 10 weeks behind on HTGFG and would love to catch up, but am beginning to wonder if that is at all possible!
  4. Sandwich a charity quilt or two? A gal from church is making the tops and backs, and I volunteered to do quick machine quilting. I better get to them as she is faster than I am!

    Your Grandmother’s Flower Garden is so very pretty and unusual in its color layout! I’ve never seen one like that. It’s beautiful and eye-catching!
    How I bet you and your grands enjoyed the train ride!
    Happy sewing this week!

    I gave up on my hexagons and put the case of them, box of them, and what I had sewn together in my booth for sale. I knew I wouldn’t have the time to work on them any time soon.

    I love looking at your Grandmother’s Flower Garden. I can’t figure out how you do it! I’d love to take a train ride on one of those – how fun.
    Thank you for joining with us at To Do Tuesday!
