To-Do Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Another week has flown by. It sure has been a hot and muggy one here in NE Indiana. I’m continuing with handwork in the evenings doing English Paper Piecing (EPP). Plus, that’s when I turn the AC down to try to get our bedroom on the second floor to cool off for the night.

Here’s what happened in my quilting world this past week -

To-Do Tuesday, August 2, 2022

  1. EPP Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden, attach week 19 to quilt. ✔️
  2. EPP – start week 20 ✔️
  3. Wednesday quilting day with friends, I’m taking the EPP project to work on, oh and cutting out “Gene” on friend’s accuquilt cutter since that didn’t happen last week. ✔️
  4. Charity quilts, need sandwiched and being quilting. ✗
  5. Meet up with friends to start quilting clothing quilts this Friday. ✔️
1. Week 19 of Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Week 19 attached to the growing quilt.

2. Week 20 of Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden

Week 20 all stitched and ready to attach to quilt.

3. ”Gene” cut on friend’s accuquilt cutter

“Gene” cut and fused in place. Next up,  stitch around the letters.

4.  Charity quilts, need sandwiched – didn’t happen.

5.  Quilting clothing quilts

Two of the four are quilted with large meandering and an occasional shell. These two are now waiting for binding.

I added in an unplanned project this week. I’ll be getting together with some gals from our church some time in the Fall to sew together 40 mug rugs to gift to school teachers. My DIL and I cut and kitted 40 some hexie mug rug kits.

I had three sets of Moda Honey Comb precuts, which are hexagon shapes, prefect for quick mug rugs. I’ll be looking through my stash for backing and I’m sure I have enough batting scraps for the mug rugs. Other gals from church will contribute too. Honestly, I’m just happy to be using up what I have on hand which helps clean out the sewing room! Anyone with me on that?!

  1. EPP Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden, attach week 20 to quilt.
  2. EPP – start week 21
  3. Wednesday, meet with DIL to cut backing and batting for mug rugs. And maybe some heart shapes for pillows.
  4. Meet with quilt friends Friday for a sewing day. Take EPP. With a full day to sew, I’m hoping to get to week 22 and maybe even 23 of Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden!
  5. Stitch “Gene” on to bag.
That’s it for another week.

    The hexagon mug rugs are so cute. “Gene” is neat! Yes I’m with you on using what you have (as I hit the “complete your purchase” button on a fabric website – LOL!)
