To-Do Tuesday

To-Do Tuesday 6-7-16 | Georgia Girl Quilts

This week’s To-Do Tuesday is being hosted by Sarah of Georgia Girl Quilts. Make sure you head over to THIS post and link up your To-Do Tuesday post. After you link up, take some time to look around Sarah’s blog to get to know a little more about her and check out some of her amazing work. She’s been a quilting machine, whipping up a bunch of gorgeous quilts on a time crunch (isn’t that the way we quilters always do?!). She has two recent finishes that blew me away; her Tango, #5 quilt as part of the Art with Fabric blog hop and her Reminds me of Picasso quilt for the Traditional Craft : Modern Perspective quilt show. I’d highly recommend taking a moment to check out those quilts!

Sewing Station

As for my week, I was able to make the hours pass by until we took possession of our new-to-us house by starting on my Churn Dash quilt. I wasn’t really planning to work on that, but figured why not?! Which means I actually have a few pictures this week. My machine is too heavy for our dinette, and I foolishly decided I didn’t need to bring my Featherweight on this trip. I made do by putting Ellie up on the counter and had just enough room to get sewing.

336 5 inch squares

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been busy messing around with 336 5″ squares that I turned into 336 block units. I’ve assembled 13 of 42 churn dash blocks. I think my sewing has stopped for the moment though.

We got the keys to the house Sunday night, and we spent Monday at the house starting to get things ready. Mister and our brother-in-law wired up a 30 amp electrical box to hook up the motorhome when we bring that over on Tuesday morning. We brought some kitchen and household items that were duplicates from Havasu, and also picked up some furniture that was Brad’s mom and was put into storage for us to use while we get the house set up. We’re not moving from one house to another house, so we have some furniture hunting and many bazillion things to buy for the house.

  1. That plaid churn dash might just be the best looking churn dash block of all time! Now I want to make yet another CD quilt made with all plaids. Have fun setting up the house and furniture hunting! Also, thank you very, very much for your kind words about my quilts. You’ve made my day!


    1. Thank you! I am really loving this fabric line! I am so glad I purchased it on impulse last year and then happened to stumble upon it again right before we left. I think this is going to be a great quilt!
