To Do Tuesday 1 - 4 - 2021

Two days in a row?  I haven't blogged that much for a while.  But yesterday's Monday Meandering was full of what I did last year.  Now I'm on to my regular weekly goal report. 

So here's last week's list.  


Continue hand quilting on Christmas Quilt - Finally some done Monday night.

Start working on borders of T shirt quilt - On hold waiting for decisions.

Sew the red and black blocks together ✔️ Find pictures of it here

Quilt one of my quilts ✔️ I got the Dalmatian top quilted and bound. (see above.) 

Here is my first list of goals for 2021.


Cut 10 more Glorified 9 patch blocks; start sewing together

Begin cutting Ohio Stars R, W, B quilt 

Quilt something on Long Arm 

Continue hand quilting on Christmas Quilt

Over the weekend I spent quite a lot of time reviewing finishes, UFO items, not cleaning as much as I should have, and sewing off goals list.  Here are a couple of pictures of what I worked on last week that weren't listed on the goals list. 

First up a project that must be an antique. There are 56 1.5" squares pinned on a a folded piece of muslin.  The three missing have already been sewn together.  As I was plowing through my various UFO bins and boxes I ran into this.  I figure it is probably 10+ years old.  I eyed the very nice red ball pins and the muslin.  It dawned on me I could put both things to work doing something else.  So, I'm stitching this as an ender project.  I've gotten two and a half rows done.  I have no idea what I'll do with it but it will get done sometime in the next month or two.  

The other project is making blocks for FCQ Equilter, Beth. She picked a Missouri Star quilt call 4 x 4. You can find the directions here. It also has a video link.  Beth wanted us to use brights and white.  Here are the  first 9 blocks I'm making for her. I'm to happy to use some of my supply of 2.5" blocks I cut when I'm cleaning up from other quilts.  I plan to make several more and then ship them off to her.  

That's it for now.  It's time to link up to a couple of parties and then get on to actually piecing.  (Or if I was really good cleaning up the cutting table. Nah, I'll keep playing with my fabrics!)  Check out To Do Tuesday at Home Sewn By Us, MidWeek Makers at Quilt Fabrication, and  Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.  Here's my challenge.... I will need to come back Wednesday and Thursday to add the links.  Let's see if I can do that.  Don't forget to visit some other blogs from these linky parties.  You never know what great things you'll find!  Kudos to me -- I linked to all my regular parties. And . . . 

Linky News Flash:  I'm linking up to a new party that will be available every Wednesday to Tuesday at Life in the Scrapatch.  Join me today at the first Stitch, Sew and Show linky party.

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie  


  1. Love your brights and white squares, pretty and fun project! Great goals done ;)

  2. The 4x4 quilt block looks like a great way to use up all those random 2.5 inch squares we all end up with. I'll have to check out the MSQC tutorial.

  3. I’d struggle coming up with “brights” for the blocks. My scraps are mostly navy, reds-burgundy, and greens - even my stash is limited to those colors, plus grey. Pretty boring!

  4. Hi Bonnie! Great job on the red and black/Dalmatian quilt. Also, I love your ender project - I wonder what you're going to do with it when it's all together? The 2.5" blocks are nice and colorful - I do the same thing with leftover scraps. I use them to make doll quilts when I have enough of them. A R/W/B quilt - I have a hankering to make one myself. I am leaning toward using the Road to Oklahoma block. Good luck with your goals this week and thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. 4 X 4 seems to be a really cool quilt to do mainly by using lots of small scraps. Thanks for the tutorial link.

  6. What a treasure you found with those little 1.5 inch squares! I'm going to check out the 4x4 tutorial - love the brights you're using.

  7. Love your scrappy quilts in progress. Reminds me of my 1.5" squares Postage Stamp Quilt that is still in many pieces. It has been a leader and ender project for two years. I have lots of pairs to sew into blocks. This slipped so far down my mental "to-do" list that it has been lost in the shuffle. I need to write and cross off my list as I sew along like I used to do. You are sew organized. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing in my linky party ... :) Pat

  8. You've got a great list - not too complicated. Your quilt is off to a good start.

  9. Those blocks are going to make a nice quilt!

  10. Thanks for the note about a new link up.


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