To-Do-Tuesday: September 15, 2020


Happy Tuesday!
Happy Tuesday!  It's To-Do-Tuesday hosted by Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn By Us

My husband finally got a decent dose of steroids and I could abandon him (a little bit) and get some sewing accomplished!

Last week my goal was to figure out what to do with the embroidered blocks I made years ago.  I ended up going super plain with just a black border.  I was really afraid that if I added color I would get sick of it later on so plain it is.  Using only one border meant that I could hang it in the alloted place in my attic sewing room.  I have slanted ceilings so prime real estate for wall hangings is valuable.

I also made 2 doll quilt tops and have another in the works.  It seems whenever I win something either at guild or a blog, there is always a pack of mini charms in the gift (mini charms are 2.5 inch pre cut squares).  I've got three little girls I'm gifting quilts to this fall and I thought it would be fun to include a quilt for their favorite doll.

Next week's goals:  

1. Decide and prepare the next top for our machine quilter.

2. Finish the doll quilts.

3.  Mail Christina's quilt and wallhanging to her.  

That's all I think I can handle for now!  Stay safe and have a great day!

Hi Michele! I enjoy making dolly quilts - especially if they were for three special little girls. I'm hoping Addison will need one some for her baby! I think the black sashing for the embroidered blocks is just PERFECT. Color would detract from the beautiful embroidery. How are you going to quilt it? I have a redwork piece that is just awaiting quilting and I have no idea what to do. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

Beautiful embroidered quilt...the black really shows off the embroidery work...you can't go wrong with squares..they make really beautiful quilts. I'm sure your girls will love them. Have a great day!

Those will be such fun doll quilts! My first granddaughter is turning one soon so I should probably start filing these things away, right? Or just start on them!

I love doll quilts and with 2 grandsons, don't have any excuse to make any. These, the embroidered blocks one too, are adorable, Michele. I've never seen mini charms.

Your embroidered blocks bordered in black will be perfect to hang in the sewing room! I love making doll quilts - that's a fun idea to make them for the little girls in your life. Have a great week, Michele!
