Good morning! I hope you are all safe if you are along the East Coast and dealing with Hurricane Isaias! Today is "To-Do-Tuesday" and time to post goals for the next week! It is hosted by Roseanne and be sure to visit her blog for more inspiration!
I did so-so with my goals for last week, mostly because I got side tracked.
1-Finish block 3 of the embroidered quilt: Not done. I've had to change the drawing a few times and that has held me up.
2-Finish the beach quilt top: Done!
3-Finish Lavender Sachets: Not done. This is an outdoor project and it was just too humid this past week. I got some of the flowers off the stem yesterday when it was cooler but it's not as far as I would have liked.
And that brings me to next week's goals:
I got sidetracked because as I worked on the beach quilt, I saved all the scraps 2.5 inches or bigger.
So instead of finishing the rest of my goals, I just started making 4 patches.I call making a scrap quilt immediately after a finished project, "good to the last drop quilts". I just can't embrace cleaning up the scraps and finding a place for those pieces. I wasn't sure what to do with these but then I remembered a similar piece made by Sarah at "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" after she finished a Christmas quilt (see here). So I'm going with that layout, partly because I can use up more fat quarters for the frames.
Next week's goals:
1- Clean up the sewing room. It's time. I finished about 5 tops this past month and it's needed. I can't function well in a disorderly workspace. Hopefully I will finish that today or tomorrow.
2-Finish the four patch blocks (above).
3-Prepare some more tops for the quilter.
Have a safe and happy day!
