To – Do Tuesday Linky Party #4

Quilt Schmilt

Hello and welcome to the To Do Tuesday link party!

Last week we had 31 people link up their posts with all of the projects they are working on or managed to finish! I had so much fun visiting each and every post and think I’ve figured out a work around so I can comment on your posts if WordPress and Blogger aren’t playing nicely! Not only do I use a laptop or my Mac with Chrome, I can always post anonymously and just enter my name, website address and email in the comment.

It was so hard not to just drop everything and start new projects just like yours! 😉. My inner squirrel, Samantha would have been thrilled if I did! 🐿😉🐿

Instead I did manage a finish for PQ14.2. A lovely, large zippered project pouch. It’s a shame I hadn’t made another pouch a while back. All of the pouches I had made before were full of UFOs. I had been working on a Double Wedding Ring Quilt and somehow, the background fabric got misplaced/used for another project since it wasn’t all together in a project bag. Now I am on the search for a close to matching background fabric so that when I have enough arcs pieced I can finish this lovely quilt,

Here are the details for linking up:

  • This linky party is for any project – It can be in-progress or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features one of your projects.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. There will be a linky party available every week!
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following or commenting on my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

It is now your turn to share what you are working on or have finished.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Thank you Kathryn. I keep telling myself I’m not the only one to have done so and I’m sure I’m not the last. It’ll just add more movement to the project if it’s not exactly the same, right? A design element. 😉

  1. Now that I am back in the sewing room, my biggest fear is that I will use a fabric that was already started in another quilt and I won’t have enough to finish it. Is your double wedding ring all batiks? Sometimes those can be easier to match color because of their variations.

    I know what you mean about wordpress vs blogger. I finally gave up and made a wordpress profile just so I could comment. Some people have their blogs set to no anonymous comments.

    1. Hi Marti. My Double Wedding Ring isn’t batiks. The background fabric is a cream mottled fabric and I have no idea what I did with it. My sewing space at home is only 4’ square so it was easy to look for it 😢
      I have checked every setting on my site and all of my settings are for allowing anyone to comment. I’m stumped 😉

  2. Right? I see everyone’s projects are so inspiring! Samantha and my inner squirrel must be communicating!
    I also use project bags like your’s. My daughter made me about 10 of them, several with matching pouches to hold the accessories! LOL! Yes, I’m a bit spoiled! 😊
    I have the Accuquilt die for the Double Wedding Ring quilt which is on my Bucket List. Happy Stitching!

    1. Mia Thank you for your lovely comment. I think watching everyone’s progress on their projects is the best thing about hosting the Party! Good thing our squirrels can’t get together. Can you imagine the ideas they’d come up with?
      I had made 6 project bags but 1 is always at the studio and I had used them all so didn’t have one for my Double Wedding Ring. Your daughter is amazing to have spoiled you with 10 and matching accessory pouches. You have the Accuquilt die. What fun! I’m doing the wedges by hand since I don’t have that one. 😉

  3. Maybe you should buy several different backgrounds for your Double Wedding Rings instead of trying to match what you started. Then it would look planned instead of an oops – I used the one I wanted to use in something else. Re making pouches, I actually broke down and bought some clear plastic mesh zipper pouches from Amazon. They really work well for storing my ongoing projects. Previously I used plastic boxes that fit perfectly under my cutting table but I’ve found many of them have broken (although I still use them.) They took up a lot of room. (Although they are still in place taking up room.) The pouches come 18 to an order so I’ve given away several of them to other quilting friends. If I’m feeling fancy I use a labeler to make a tag for the front of the pouches. (I’m not feeling fancy all that often!) Hope you have a terrific week!

    1. Thank you Bonnie for the great suggestion about using the different backgrounds. I had come up with a plan to put in a narrow checkered border and then switch up the colours so your suggestion is perfect! I try not to have too many WIPs on the go at one time since my sewing space at home is only 4’ square and includes my stash cupboard. It would be nice to have the sewing room I had before we moved, but you make do 😉
