To-Do-Tuesday: January 12, 2021


Good morning!  Today is "To-Do-Tuesday" hosted by Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us!  Each Tuesday we post our goals for the coming week.  It really helps keep me on track.

Last week I accomplished all my goals:
1-Figured out my Round Robin Block (posted yesterday):  Done!

2-Worked on my Rainbow Challenge blocks: Done!
I have to remember to post the progress on So Scrappy blog  on Saturdays.  Good goal for next week!

3-Talked to Jenny's Mom about her quilt: Done!  Her mom said she loves neutral colors.  I've only ever done one neutral quilt and to be honest, I think that was 8 years ago.  Now folks call them "Low Volume" quilts I think.  I'm still researching and debating patterns and fabrics.  Any suggestions would be welcomed!
Next week's goals:
1- Post on So Scrappy blog regarding Rainbow Blocks and continue making blocks.

2-Cut and piece fabrics for what I'm calling "The Coneflower Quilt".  It's Lori Holt's pattern for Bright Zinnia but to me the flowers look more like coneflowers.  
Anyway, piecing this last week calmed me down so I want to focus a bit on them.  Mostly I'm just cutting the fabric for the blocks.  I am not sure if I want to make it 5 blocks by 6 or 5 blocks by 5 yet.

This is enough to keep me busy for now.  Stay safe and have a good day!

I missed your post yesterday so had to go back and check it out! You have some pretty blocks to work on this week, too. Piecing blocks gives me some peace, too.

Hi Michele! OOOOOH - love the blocks for your RSC project this year. Although it looks like a hard block - is it paper pieced? Hmm. A neutral quilt. I made my boss a neutral table runner last year out of all neutrals with HSTs. (https://homesewnbyus.com/squirrel-is-dreami-right/) I guess it was in 2018! Or how about trying a half-hexagon block or HRT if she leans towards modern. Finally, if I sent you a package via 2-day instead of regular mail, would that be delivered? Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

I love the RSC blocks! I need to try that block. Yay for sewing along with the Round Robin, too! Those coneflowers are cute!

Beautiful blocks. And I love your "coneflowers" blocks too!
