To-Do Tuesday

Greetings – again!  Still H&H here!  Still walking!

I did not meet all of my goals this week, but what else could be new.  I do have good excuses though!  (don’t we all) Here were my goals for this week and any hold overs!

Goals for 8 thru 15 September  were:

  • Continue to work on Mary Brown blocks and Sweet Stitches – Still working on them-Progress made on Sweet Stitches
  • Begin working on my 3030 quilt – Pulled fabrics, but had to order Bella Solids Ivory for background – Delay!
  • I am contemplating working on other UFOs or BOMs but am not sure, so I will just list the 2 goals. I selected 4 that I would like to participate in but unable to start on any. 
  • Previous week was to clean the Studio.  I have completed this Goal. Studio and House Clean – Sewing Time

When I  pulled fabrics for my 3030 quilt I realized that the Bella Solids I had (Snow and Beige) would not blend well with the fabrics so I ordered some Ivory from Fat Quarter Shop.  Still have not received that order.  I also ordered some Rothermel 3030 fat quarter fabrics. They are so soft and beautiful!

I ordered then from Pat’s Fat Quarters and Pat’s Fat Quarters.  She ships fast and the fabrics are great!  They beat the delivery for my Bella Solids.  I am happy that I ordered them, as most of the Rothermel fabrics I have were not going to be used in this quilt.

I made some progress on Sweet Stitches block for November.

Goals for the next week – 15-22 September are:

Here are the fabrics I have chosen for SAG:

And a few more fat quarters to blend in.  The light background will be for the Center Medallion.  I believe I will be able to trace the applique pattern OK – time will tell!

I believe I will be able to do better this next week!  Have a great week!

  1. Hi Nanette! Oh, your fabric choices for SAG are SO pretty! Are they batiks? The fabrics for 3030 look fab all lined up like that. I took a look at the pattern – does something go in the center of the 30 blocks? Of course, you don’t have to put anything there – just curious of your plans. I hope the weather settles down for you soon. Thanks for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Thank you Roseanne. There is a Center Medallion. Gay mailed separately – which was great! They are batiks. I love my batiks! I was happy to find them and Pat does a great job in providing a variety! Hugs


  2. Those fabric colors for SAG are just gorgeous! I love that you set goals. I have a few in my head but never really thought of setting them to paper lol,,, slow and steady back into the game is going pretty good for you 🙂


    1. Thank you Sharon. The Linky Party for the To Do allows me to set some more realistic goals and then post about them each Tuesday. Roseanne hosts it. I tried to do it last year but no success. So I wanted something that would get me going since I am having a short 2020 quilting year! LOL. Hugs


  3. I am drooling over those 3030 fabrics. Seems like I read something about a 3030 quilt but don’t remember anything I saw.


  4. Nanette your fabrics always make me drool! 😆 Enjoy that clean sewing space! Today I am going to the district MIWW contest, so I’m going to see about catching up on my Out West BOM before I leave…I’m packed up and just need to load the car after lunch.


  5. For some reason, I love to see fabric pulls. I guess it is natural with our love of fabrics. You have quite a beautiful stash, Nanette. I looked at the Stars around the garden project. You will do a fantastic job of it I know. Always love to see the embroidery progressing too.
