To Do Tuesday. 2022 #2

Linking up with Texas Quilt Girl.

Last week my plans were

1. Continue with quilting the Queen Log Cabin quilt I am making for my bed. A little most days will move it along.  Continued with most days. Quilting on it is not the best, if I ever do a quilt this big again I need to look at splitting it, most likely the batting. My tension has been off and some skipped stitches – doesn’t like going backwards. I am just keeping going. I hope my eye doesn’t notice it too much when its on the bed.
2. Sew some blocks for the Nine Patch Square Dance top I’ve started. Using left overs from the Sewcialites quilt with the Fat Quarter Shop  I made last year.  Pattern by Sherri McConnell.
I have a good few of the colours done. Just now have the grey to do.Nine patch square blocks
3. Pick out fabric and cut first BOM block from at A Quilting Life. Yes I am on a Sherri McConnell binge! I love their podcast and am even going to use her planner this year.
Completed the 12 inch block and then decided to one in the 6 inch as well. Didn’t take a photo of the 6 inch yet. So now to wait till February for the next block!

4. Tidy some shelves in my sewing room.
Two only done. But its a start. Oh, they are very small shelves!

This Week starting 11th January.

  1. Keep quilting the Queen log cabin. I think I must almost have done all the straight lines and can go back and finish the feathers. There is still quite a few places for those but will see how I go. 
  2. Sew the second #RileyBlakeChallenge block. Yes I got caught into another quilt along or two! Here is my first one.Riley Blake 1
  3. Sew the second block in Pat Sloan’s Sweet Dreams Quilt Along.  This is my first one.Sweet dreams 1
  4. Sew all grey blocks for the Nine Patch Square Dance Quilt
  5. Clean up a couple of more shelves or baskets.

At the moment I am reading and loving this book. It is really keeping me riveted. Have you read it?  I am doing a reading challenge on Facebook with Emilie Richards and this month calls for a memoir. Perfect!

  1. Wow! You have been bitten by the Challenge Block bug! Beautiful blocks.! I haven’t read a memoir in a long time. They used to be my go-to reads. I need to read a few again. My reading mojo has left me.

  2. Beautiful blocks! I want to read Jenny’s book quite badly! (Was hoping to access it on reading app or e-Book at library to avoid buying it–we just have too many books around here as it is. Might just get the digital if it comes to that.). Good to hear it’s enjoyable!

    • Hope you can get Jenny Doan’s book form somewhere. I come from a large family so making comparisons was really interesting. Plus – well I learned quite a bit about quilting from her!

  3. Hi Kathryn! I haven’t read that book yet but I have it on my wish list at the library. You’ve got quite a collection of beautiful blocks heading toward some gorgeous quilt finishes. Good luck with this week’s list! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. I’m not sure if I already commented, but here’s another one! I love those square dance blocks, and the fussy cut blocks are so pretty.
    Thank you for linking your post to To Do Tuesday! 🙂
