Tuesday ToDo #40

 Last week I said I would like to finish binding the Scrappy Log Cabin quilt, and I finished that last Friday.

I also wanted to continue working on my RSC projects and get caught back up this month. I've been partially successful. I finished most of the Arlington Square and Bloom blocks and I got started on the green stained glass blocks but then our weather turned so hot that I didn't want to run the iron all day so I set that project aside for now.

I also wanted to finish quilting my Rhododendron Trail quilt. The quilting has been finished, but I must admit, I did not do it. My husband did. My husband⏤who has never expressed any interest in my quilting endeavors before I got the long arm⏤is suddenly interested in playing with my ProStitcher computer. I worked with him to choose the stitching designs and then he finished quilting the entire quilt while I sewed with my friend who was visiting for a week.

I also got a little distracted this week with a small scrappy project. Our friend in town wanted to sew while she was here so I ended up working on something that was easy to cut out and work on. I found this Groovy Garden fabric on clearance and I thought it would be fun to use these colors for another Broken Bricks pattern scrappy quilt.
For next week, I would like to:
  1. Finish the borders on this Broken Bricks scrappy quilt.
  2. Bind the Rhododendron Trail quilt.
  3. Get back to working on my stained glass blocks.
  4. I also put my Sewcialites quilt on the long arm frame and I'm hoping we'll make progress on it this week. I told my husband he could design the quilting however he wanted to. I believe he is planning to put a different block design on every square.
Thanks to Linda for hosting Tuesday ToDo.


  1. Oh my gosh, your husband quilted! That is fantastic, and he did a great job. I may see if my husband is interested in learning. He's always wishing for more to do - lol!
