To Do Tuesday (Oops, Wednesday edition!)

Here's last week's to do list.  


Quilt one of my quilts✔️ ready for binding

Begin customer’s quilt nope, nothing done except think about it! 

Finish baby quilt top✔️ at least the center is done, still needs borders 

Finish wonky Family Portrait✔️ basically done although I may add some more quilting. 

Pick a new UFO and start working on it ✔️ Yep, check here to see the next UFO I'm hoping to finish.

It was a fairly successful week. I also spent some time baking and reading.   

And, here's what I've got planned for this week. (I'm late getting this posted so we are already a day into this week! Eek!) 


Trim log cabin blocks.  

Load and start quilting customer quilt

Make 1 scrap basket in red 

Bind one of my quilts

Put borders on baby quilt. 

I've already started trimming the log cabin blocks but it'll take a long time to trim 60+ blocks.  I probably need to make one or two more to have the correct amount. 

The red scrap basket is in progress.  I watched a Craftsy class called Home Organizers by Annie Unrein.  She had an interesting project called a Catch-All-Caddy. I like the size but I don't need a bunch of pouches and pockets.  So I'm planning to strip it down to the bare bones and see if I want one for every color of scraps I keep.  I'm making slab block type fabric to make the sides of basket.  I'm pretty sure I'll line it with yardage and then use a contrasting strip as the binding. Here's one of the slab fabrics -- just needs a few more inches on the sides.

Hopefully, I can make some good progress on all of this week's goals. 

I'm linking up with To Do Tuesday, Midweek Makers, and Needle and Thread Thursday.  I hope you enjoy checking out the blogs posted on these linky parties. 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 



  1. The log cabin blocks are fabulous!

  2. Those tilted log cabin blocks are seriously cool! I'll be curious what they look like all sewn together.

  3. Oh, that red scrappy basket will be fantastic. Have a great week.

  4. Hi Bonnie! Your red slab for a scrap basket is sure pretty. Red is one of my favorite colors and the mix of fabrics you've chosen sure play nicely together. I also love your log cabin blocks. At first glance I thought one of them had some lace on the outside edge. I haven't made log cabin blocks for years - I made sweatshirts for everyone I knew and I think I got burned out from them. I guess I should/could get over the dislike of the block after 30 years! Thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Oh my goodness, I have never seen wonky log cabins. But I love it. Yesterday I saw a t-shirt with a huge wine glass and the caption - "this is the glue holding the 2020 shitshow together" Looks like this wonky log cabin is an indication of 2020 and all that is upside down.

  6. Those are the coolest log cabin blocks I have ever seen! I think of them as twisted log cabins! Very nice!

  7. The log cabin blocks are beautiful! Neat pattern!

  8. Those log cabin blocks are fabulous! I'm really curious about how they're made! Good luck with your trimming - that always slows me down.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
