Tuesday ToDo #60

I have been very busy finishing UFOs this month. I decided before I would let myself start a new project I needed to spend the last couple of months of the year working on UFOs. I don't have to finish them all, but I did want to make a dent in them. I think I have.

This past week I finished the two Arlington Square twin-size flimsies I worked on during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. My original plan was to make one big quilt, but then I decided I already have too many bed-size quilts so I split the blocks in half and made two smaller quilts. Those blocks are 14" so they're still pretty big.
I finished piecing, quilting, and binding this crib-size Broken Bricks leader-ender project I've had sitting around next to my machine for at least a couple of months. The border on this one is the leftover bits I cut off the Rhododendron Trail after I quilted it so all of it is scraps, except the backing. (This is the photo before I got it bound. I haven't yet taken a photo of it with the binding.) I believe I'll be giving this one to the Comfort Quilts program unless someone in my family gets in touch that they want it before the next quilt guild meeting.
I've finished binding this adorable panel I quilted for our local quilt guild for their Comfort Quilts program. I used some yellow flannel for the backing. The pantograph is a precious Baby Bunny pantograph designed by Donna Kleinke at One Song Needle Arts. It was perfect for this panel.
I've finished labeling and binding the Flowers for Nana Girl lap quilt. Photos will be updated after I have time to take them. This is definitely my favorite of all the RSC projects I worked on. I'll be keeping this one; likely the rest will be gifted to family/friends.
For this coming week, I would very much like to finish all the quilts I've quilted but not yet bound.

If there is time, it would also be nice to finish those Arlington Square quilts, but I suspect I will run out of time. Depending on how impatient I am, I may keep working on UFOs during the first couple of weeks of January and then start on Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery quilt.

Thanks to Linda for hosting the Tuesday ToDo for more than a year. I'm sure it is quite a time commitment to make a weekly post and then go and read the posts that folks link. I hope you know your efforts were appreciated.


  1. You've been making tremendous progress. I really like your Flowers for Nana Girl quilt. The colors really sing. I don't use many batiks which might explain why they are stacked so high they are falling over. This might be a good plan for this year IF I can decide on a block.... Happy New Year.

  2. Awww thanks Sharon, it has been my pleasure to read the posts! Those Arlington Square quilts are really nice. I love the Broken Bricks and the flowers quilt too. The panel quilt is amazing, and I love that panto! Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!
