To Do Tuesday 11-9-21

It's that time of the week again! To Do Tuesday is the day we post about what we've been up to and cheer each other on. Even though I risk squirrel-spiration, I read all your posts and love reading about your lives and all your interesting projects. If you are reading this and haven't ever posted, please jump in and join us - we would love to see what you are doing this coming week. Whether it's quilting, photography, tablescapes, crochet/knitting, needlework, crafting, or any other hobby you enjoy, you are welcome to link up at the bottom of this post! 

DashAlong is ready for binding!

Jack approved the layout for Indian Corn but chided me for all the loose threads

Here were my goals for last week:
✅1. Finish quilting DashAlong - Done and ready for binding
2. Sew Indian Corn blocks into flimsy - No, but I did get the layout done with Jack's help
✅3. Sew piano key border around Autumn Jubilee project - Done - sandwiched and ready to quilt
✅4. Sandwich SAHRR Christmas quilt Done and ready to quilt
5. Continue to slow stitch at night - Some progress but not every night

I found this beautiful leafy batik at Joann's for the backing for my Autumn Jubilee quilt

My familiar-looking list for the coming week:
1. Bind DashAlong and post about it
2. Sew together blocks and sandwich Indian Corn
3. Quilt and bind Autumn Jubilee
4. Quilt and bind SAHRR Christmas quilt
5. Night-time slow stitch

I have to put my sandwiched flimsys on the design board so the kitties won't make beds out of them!

There were 24 (plus me) bloggers posting to To Do Tuesday last week! Let's see what you have planned for the coming week.

For those who like to schedule their posts in advance, the Inlinkz party opens at 12:01am on Tuesdays, and posts can be made until it closes at 11:59pm the following Monday.

  1. You made good progress last week. Indian Corn is looking good. That leaf print is gorgeous, it will make a wonderful backing fabric. Good luck with your to do list for this week.

  2. Those churnies make me swoon, they are so lovely. Indian Corn is a beauty too, especially with handsome Jack showing off his matching furs. That backing fabric is gorgeous! I've linked up today, but realized I forgot to mention the link up in my post (sigh) - I'll do better next time!

  3. The quilting on Dash-along looks great, Linda! Cheering you on for the binding, because you're so close to a beautiful finish. I love your backing for Autumn Jubilee, too! That's something I haven't thought about yet, but hope to soon. Thanks for hosting us!

  4. You made great progress on your list last week, Linda. Sure Jack helps a lot (LOL). Dash along looks great with the meander quilting, well done, and you found a beautiful batik for Autumn Jubille backing.
    Good luck with your goals for this week.

  5. Hi,
    Beautiful quilts...I really like the Indian pretty. Glad to hear Jack approved
    it. That leafy batick is really beautiful. Have a great day!

  6. Beautiful cat, beautiful quilt, beautiful backing and flimsies Linda.

  7. I am totally in love with that Indian corn quilt. It is just the kind of thing that I would like because it’s largely neutral. The design is so pretty as well. Jack looks so proud of his mama. That batik is gorgeous! What a fabulous tablecloth, runner, or set of napkins it would make.

  8. You did well last week - and if Jack approves of the setting I see that as nearly sewn! Good luck with your week - oh and I love that back - perfect!

  9. Ooh I think I want to be at your place enjoying your cat and eye candy on your design wall. Great list this week. Good luck with finishing it! 😉

  10. Hi Linda! It occurs to me that Jack looks a bit like Wilbs, no?! He has such pretty coloring. Woot woot on Dash Along - look at those bea-U-tiful flower fabrics!! WOWEE - that leafy fabric is just purrfect for AJ. You couldn't have made a better choice. HAHA - I think that's cute about layered projects on the design wall. Mine are neatly folded on the back of the "visitor" chair in the sewing room. Needless to say, we don't have visitors because there is NO place to sit. HAHA! Thanks for the linky party today. I'm off to find inspiration and NO squirrel project amongst the linkers. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  11. Love that Batik! You've made great progress on your pretty projects this week!

  12. I agree with Jack’s assessment regarding your Indian Corn layout! He’s so regal looking! The binding fabric for Dash Along is so pretty, and that Autumn Jubilee backing fabric is gorgeous!

  13. Now Jack can just lump it if he has issues with loose threads. It's going to be a beautiful quilt and he should be proud to earn such a high-end modeling job! May we both get our bindings on this week! (Not sure why I'm avoiding it but I am!)

  14. I don't let the cats into my room....and going to have to ban the dog too. He's been liking to drag out fabric to make into his bed!

  15. Love all your projects!! I need to get going on the 4 items waiting for quilting in my studio. I just did 2, so maybe can cut myself some slack. But for some reason more items just keep joining the pile!! LOL

  16. All of your projects are so pretty. I love the fabrics in Indian Corn and that batik is beautiful.
