Tuesday ToDo #41

How is it Tuesday again? Gosh, time is going so fast this summer.

This past week I hoped to get the borders on my bright broken bricks scrappy quilt. I didn't quite get that done, because my sewing machine died in the middle of one of the edges. I took it in to the shop and it turns out the motor was dead. And since Pfaff is no longer making motors for the Pfaff 7570, my machine was kaput. I was sad, for about 5 minutes.

I actually bought this machine something like 20 years ago, and it was used at that time. Probably not very much, but it was not new in the box. It was quite the workhorse.

I debated about what to replace it with and looked around for something used again, but then I discovered Pfaff makes a purple machine! Yeah, I had to get that.
It is going to take some time to adjust to the differences, but I do like the color. 

Anyway, by the time I had the machine figured out, I turned my attention to binding the Rhododendron Trail quilt and got it finished!
The Sewcialites quilt is still on the frame and is almost finished. My husband has quilted all of the blocks and is currently working on a fussy border. I think he's doing quite well at coming up with quilting designs that go with the blocks. To be honest, when I ordered the long arm, it never occurred to me my husband would have any interest in using it. LOL

I didn't work on sewing stained glass blocks, at all. I was too busy getting ready for a big multi-family garage sale next weekend.

On that note, I will make my ToDo list, but I don't expect I'll get much done this week. It's more the list for the month.
  1. Add the last border on the Groovy Garden Broken Bricks lap quilt.
  2. Assemble a backing for it.
  3. Make my Purple RSC blocks.
  4. Work on my Stained Glass blocks.
  5. Bind the Sewcialites Quilt.
  6. Figure out the next project and start cutting it out.
  7. Assemble a backing for the Graceful Moments Flimsy.
  8. Long Arm quilt another lap quilt. (I think I only have 3 left now.)

I am linking up with Tuesday ToDo.


  1. You've been busy, so has he! That's quite the list for next week too, but who will be quilting you or him? LOL

    1. I suspect he'll be taking a break when he's finished with the current one. Plus, I want a turn to play with the long arm. He's been hogging it. LOL

  2. My mind is still blown by your husband and the longarm. I am laughing about "I was sad, for about 5 minutes." Glad you like the color on your new machine!
    Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!

    1. Yeah, that's about how long it took me to find the purple machine. LOL

  3. Yippee for new machine!! I am looking for a new small one to take to classes. Love the Rhododendron!!!!
