To-Do-Tuesday: November 10, 2020

 It's To-Do-Tuesday!!!!

Today with the help of our friend Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us, we post the goals we hope to meet during the next week.  I like looking at everyone's projects for inspiration and often feel like I'm not alone when I can't finish things as quickly as I would like.  But that is life!

I'm actually surprised because I got all my goals from last week completed!  Sometimes I think just writing these goals once a week can really be helpful.  Even if you aren't thinking about it, you probably are steering yourself towards completing your tasks!

1-Delivered Nora's Quilt:  Done!

2-Finish Binding the Black Quilt:  Done!

3-Finish the Aqua Top:  Done!

4-Take new top to the quilter:  Done!

Here's the aqua top:

The colors are more like this:
I found the blocks when I was cleaning out my UFOs and I couldn't remember why I had them cut out.  They were leftovers from another quilt I made a few years ago:
I decided to just do a simple quilt with the blocks that were leftover but I was still intrigued that I had cut the blocks and then I was intrigued that I had enough of the aqua fabric to sash it.  But by the end of the choice selection, it occurred to me that I had bought extra yardage of both fabrics to make this exact top.  I just like to have some extra quilts for unexpected gifting.  

The black quilt will be featured on my Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog today.

Next week's goals:
1-Finish Asian inspired top.
2-Bind Linda's quilt and tabletopper.
3-Attach binding to the Christmas quilt.

I hope you have a wonderful week!  Stay safe!

Love this quilt..so pretty. The blue borders around the blocks really show off the flowers. I agree with you on making a list...it seems to motivate me to get things done. Have a great day!

Look at all those "Dones!" I like your aqua quilt - the flower fabric combined with the aqua sashing is so pretty - and the original quilt looks lovely, too!

Good work this week. Seems like you had a win win with the aqua squares:)
