To Do Tuesday is a linky party hosted by fellow blogger and quilting friends Roseanne & Sue at Home Sewn By Us. It’s a great way to document projects you are working on, stay focused and be inspired by what others are making!

To-Do for the week of April 21st through April 27th:

  1. Blanket Stitch Orange Peels – √ done
  2. Finish Baby Elephant Quilt Applique – √ done
  3. Start piecing Flag Tumbler quilt  – √ done
  4. Spinning Star Paper Pieced Pillow – √ done
  5. Start Wonky Fireworks Wall Hanging– √ done

To-Do #1Blanket Stitch Orange Peels

I was able to get all of the applique stitching done. Each block is 10 inches unfinished and I made 16 blocks. I still have time before this quilt is due, I’ll need to get it laid out and decide if I want to add a border.

To-Do #2 – Finish Elephant Baby Quilt Applique

I did the applique stitching and added a butterfly to the layout. The backing fabric arrived last week so hopefully I can get quilted this weekend. Again I have time before this one is due.

To-Do #3 – Piece Flag Tumbler

I’ve had making a flag tumbler quilt on my “someday” list for awhile.

To-Do #4 – Spinning Star Paper Pieced Pillow

I’m really obsessed with paper piecing! I used the scraps from my RWB log cabin quilt to make this pillow. I need to quilt it, add backing and binding.

  2. Hi Karla! WOW – look at all of those checkmarks for last week. Great job. Hmm, are you going to add sashing to your orange peel blocks? Just curious – they look great. I love the look of the applique/blanket stitch. Your elephant is so cute as well – he looks friendly. Finally, I have always planned to make a tumbler flag project. I have the tumbler template just waiting for me! That heart/star is c.u.t.e. You’ve got a bit of quilting in your very near future. I can’t wait to see all the finishes. Thank you for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne
