To Do Tuesday -- Tuesday Night Version

 Another good week for my goals.  Here are last week's results: 


Sew log cabin blocks together✔️

Work on landscape quilt. Figure out more size appropriate rocks. ✔️but need to change some other things still 

Bind my churn dash quilt. ✔️

Make more Snowball Blocks✔️

Make the red scrap basket✔️See Monday's post about the basket. 

Here are photos of some of my finishes. 

First, check out the Scrappy Rebuilt Log Cabin.  The top is ready for quilting but it won't happen for quite a while. 

I just finished the binding on my Churn Dash this morning. I was really happy about how it turned out.  I sew the binding on the back of my quilts first.  Then I flip it over and machine sew the binding down.  I really like how well this binding looks on both sides. It helps that the binding is the same color as the backing fabric. 

This week I really have a short list.  I've agreed to provide some quilts to kids whose families lost everything due to wild fires. Most of the quilts are ready to go but I have 3 quilts I'm making and one to quilt and bind.  So I'll be busy and highly focused this week. Here's my goal list for this week.


Quilt one lap quilt

Finish the 3 kid’s quilts 

Keep making Snowball blocks (I use these as leader enders.)  

These are the blocks I've worked on for the last few days. The two piles of charm squares are ready for the two other quilts. 

I was able to finish all the blocks for the first quilt.  I used the Happy Blocks for Charms pattern available at Mary Quilts. Here's all the blocks laid out, ready to be sewn together soon. Hum, I need to separate the turquoise and orange blocks in the top row. 
After this one is done I'm making 2 more that are basically the same with the only difference being colors around the charms.  Hopefully I'll be able to start quilting at least one of these along with the top that just needs the quilting during the week.

I'm linking up to To Do Tuesday and Midweek Makers this week.  Make sure you visit these linky parties to see what people are now working on.  I'll be back to link up with Midweek Makers. 

Virginia allows early in person voting.  Tomorrow is voting day for us.  That and getting our flu shots.  Maybe there will be a take out lunch too.  

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. Good morning, Bonnie! I just LOVE your log cabin quilt top. I've always wanted to make a black/white/red quilt but just haven't. That was my favorite color scheme and actually had a bathroom in those shades way back when. WOWEE - you do a fabulous time on your machine stitched binding. If I could do it as nicely as you, I would do all of mine like that. Have you ever written a post on your technique? It looks marvelous. I love Mary Quilts patterns and have made quite a few. These fabric patterns look like they will be a hit with all the kiddos - and what a worthwhile cause. Thanks so much for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Can't wait to see Churn Dash done! It's one of my fav blocks.

  3. Fantastic job on meeting your goals!

    I voted in person last week and will get a flu shot on Monday - two important things checked off my list.

  4. Hooray for voting early! Get it done, lady! I do my bindings the same way and it goes fast and easy. Your happy blocks are looking very cheerful :)

  5. You have accomplished your goals! YEA! Love the log cabin quilt - the red center really makes the quilt pop!!!

  6. You did well on last week's to do list and it sounds like you've got a good jump on this week's list. Your Scrappy Log Cabin looks great and I love that bright red binding with the blue of the Churn Dash quilt. Good luck with this week's to do list.


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