Pre-Christmas To do Tuesday(ish)

How is it already 2 weeks to Christmas? 3 Christmas parades and 2 concerts already, 2 concerts left. Fortunately I haven’t planned on any handmade gifts, which allows me to enjoy my sewing without time pressure.

First up, a new project! Yep, Bonnie Hunter’s Frolic mystery quilt has started. I used this photo of the beach in Cobourg, Ontario, to select a calm palette. Just for a change, the aqua is the background and the white one of the main colours. The golds/beiges will replace the blues. I will be making about 1/3 of the pieces and aiming for a throw size quilt.


Other projects are calling for attention but how to choose? I basted the Beach Ball baby quilt #1 and it needs to be quilted up before New Years Day.

My to-do list for this week is:

1. Make some of the units for Frolic.

2. Lay out and piece Beach Ball quilt #2.

3. Quilting of Beach Ball #1

Linking up to Home Sewn by Us.


  1. Hi Lisa! Oh, your fabrics for Frolic are so pretty. It will be fun to see those aqua shades used as the background and white as a main color. I look forward to seeing a few of your pieces next week. Do you have a plan for quilting Beach Ball #1? It seems like you have plenty of time to get it finished by New Year’s Day. Thank you for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. I think I’ll do some echo or dot-to-dot quilting in some of the hexagons to make them stand out, but possibly just a filler in the remaining. It’s hard to find a solid block of time to get started on it though. Maybe tomorrow night?
