To-Do-Tuesday: January 5, 2020


Good morning!  It's Tuesday and time to post my weekly to-do-list!  This program is sponsored by Roseanne and Sue over at Home Sewn By Us and it's been a wonderful way to stay on track and also fun to check out what bloggers are making.  You can visit all the blogs by checking in at Roseanne's blog here!

I finished my first goal of last week:  Jenny's Christmas quilt.  I posted a photo last week but here it is again:

 I was going to add elaborate borders to it but it was too busy and also too big for my batting (it's a lap quilt) so yesterday I only put a thin white border on it.  It's all packed up and ready to go to Terri, my machine quilter.

I didn't finish the table toppers for this quilt because it seems like I may have enough blocks left from Jenny's quilt to do another Christmas quilt.  I'm a bit Christmas-ed out right now so it's tucked away until I can review the blocks again.

Linda's quilt is finished but I need to order batting so that will just have to wait.  I also need to make her table runner but as with Jenny's quilt, it's put aside for now.

I did get the sewing room cleaned up!  It always feels good to have a fresh room for the new year.

Next week's projects:

1- I want to participate in the Round Robin that some of my blogger friends like Roseanne and Wendy are sponsoring.  I need to find my center block this week.  You can also read about that at Roseanne's website or Wendy's here.

2-Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt blocks.  The color of the month is pink!!!  

3-I may want to do another lap quilt for Jenny and need to talk to her mom this week about colors.

Have a safe and happy day!

Jenny's Christmas quilt is gorgeous, Michelle! I love that design and all the scrappy squares. I want to participate in the Round Robin, too! Just waiting on a fabric delivery to make my center block.

I love your Jenny's Christmas quilt. It looks like it took a long time to make and I totally understand beding Christmas'd out I think most people are right now. Good luck with all your projects this week.

Hi Michele! Oh, I'm so glad you want to play along in the round-robin. I can't wait to see what center block you choose. It will be amazing - all the quilts will look so different when all the rounds are done. I can hardly wait - I've never played along with one of these before. I can certainly see why you might be Christmas'd out right now. Jenny's quilt sure turned out nicely! It looks like it would be a great leader/ender project. Thanks for linking up today. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

That Christmas quilt is gorgeous! I agree about a fresh sewing room - makes me happy to walk into it.
I'm going to try the round robin also.
