To-Do Tuesday – 20 April 2021

Well, don’t fall off your chair, but I am working only To Do Tuesday post today (Monday)! I have some completions to show and am so happy as I am getting closer and closer to finishing all the “old” UFOs that have been around as long as 10 years! YEA!

Last Thursday I had my Radio Frequency Treatment and it was very successful. I did lose a couple of days with my quilting but feeling great since Sunday! Yea!

I have listed a short recap my goals for 2021 that I had listed in January!

  • Jacobean Lights – 4 blocks remaining – Completed Started in 2010!
  • Stars Around the Garden Medallion –  Waiting to be sewn into a quilt top.
  • Dresden Heaven – Appliquéing to background blocks
  • Stonefields – Finish Sections 6-10 – 60% complete. No Progress
  • Celebrating Mary Brown – 2020 project on hold – Maybe in June
  • A Bountiful Life  – Ready to add borders this week
  • OMIGOSH Completed
  • The Arrowhead Block projectCancelled
  • Sweet Stitches – Completed
  • Antique Blue and White Quilt – New to work on after May
  • Eleanor Burns Egg Money Quilt – New to work on after May with 1930 fabrics
  • RSC Challenge 2021 – NEWCancelled

I have FINALLY started Dresden Heaven. I believe there are 105 mini and 10 large Dresden Plate blocks to applique to background squares. The small ones are appliqued to 5” Squares. I cut a section of the background fabric and draw a grid. This makes it much easier to applique when working with small blocks.

Mini Dresden Plates-3 inch plates!
Jacobean Holidays Lite

I am very pleased with my progress so far for the month of April. ! I have completed 3 UFO quilt tops with A Bountiful Life to be completed this week! I am FINALLY beginning to see the light at the end of the UFOs. Now to get with the long arm quilting in May! I do believe my back will support me and can possible catch up with my quilting.

My goals for 19-26 April are as listed below. I am trying to work in some BOWs and SAL just for fun.

I will be working this week on my projects, but next week is vacation time! YIPPEE! Have a great week and will attempt to do a post from afar next week!

Have a great week and happy stitching!

Hugs, Nanette

    1. Thx Chris! I am now studying my Bountiful Life again! I need to decide to either make 6 more blocks and an applique border, OR stop at 9 blocks and do a border! But with the mini vacation coming, I think I am just going to contemplate and resume on the 1st of May on my projects. Have a great week-end coming up! and Hope all is going well.


  1. I noticed that you linked up for the Santa Fe Trail sew along, but you did not leave a picture. If you want to email the picture I would be happy to share it and include you in the give away prize drawing.
    Blessings, Melva
