To Do Tuesday #40


Linking up with Texas Quilt Gal

  • Plan for October 11th Week was – Main Three

  • I am doing the Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM and it has a setting that I am doing as well. Although as I don’t want an 80″ square quilt I am adapting the setting and so am making a log cabin block and changing size. Involves Maths! So I want to get at least one or two of the log cabins made and attached to the first block. I made two log cabins and one star corner block. I still have another one of those to do and then I can sew the first row together. I did adapt the log cabin from 14″ to 12″ finished – the centre I made 3″ instead of 6″ and then downsized the strips a little. I love the Nantucket Summer fabric and really enjoyed the interview of Camille Roskelley by FQS on You Tube last week.Nantucket blocks 1 
  • Continue quilting the Edyta Sitar mystery quilt – might get it finished. I did finish it and readied it for binding. That was sewn on and now just the hand sewing part. Quilting on mystery Q 
  • Work on making a scrappy backing out of left over fabric for my Riley Blake Challenge quilt top.  I made the scrappy backing, it was a bit too improv so hope it sits flat when I pin it to the front which will be the Riley Blake QAL ’22 top. I used discarded blocks, plus left over Anne of Green Gables fabric.Backing 

Plan for Week of 18th of October.   Main Three

  • Finish hand sewing the binding to the back of the Edyta Sitar Mystery Quilt
  • Make the second star block and sew first row of Nantucket Summer QAL from FQS
  • Watch for first block of the FQS  Sewcialites QAL out at the end of the week. I am going to do the 6″ in Nantucket Summer fabric. This is the left overs from the QAL above as FQS is very generous with fabric for that QAL. If I don’t have enough I am going to watch for when Dwell comes out as it has similar fabric and should work in. I am also going to try doing the 3″ blocks in two different fabrics. That is x2 quilts. One is Sherri & Chelsi fabric and one is picked out fabric from my stash in blue and yellow. To start with I will cut out and hopefully sew the 6″ block by next Tuesday.

  1. Love the text fabric on your Riley Blake quilt backing. Your quilting is beautiful on the mystery quilt. I just Googled the Dwell fabric – it’s gorgeous! I added Camille’s interview to my watch list today. Thank you for sharing with To Do Tuesday!
