My weekly(almost) To Do Tuesday

I have been trying to do a Tuesday goals post each week, however, I missed last week due to our vacation.  The week before my only goal was to have fun, and I met that goal head on!!!  You can read about that HERE.  

Although I didn't have any quilting goals I still was able to finish a few things after getting home.  I am back into making up some panels into wall hangings to put in the shop.  I feel like I bought this one just last year but I don't know where. At any rate I think it is just a darling panel for any snow lover.  So the Joy/Peace and snowmen are the panel. 

 I added the red skinny border, then a gingham border and the flying geese pieced tree along with the final red skinny border.  The black cornerstones add a bit more whimsy with stenciled on snowflakes. 

I took my time with the custom quilting, I think it adds just a bit more to it. The quilting in the gingham fades into it and I am fine with that, let that gingham shine!

Ready to see another one?  I am just as excited about this one, loving the gray, red and green combo, and who doesn't love the popular red truck decor.

As you can see the truck/house/trees are the panel, this one was easy to square up and get right to adding the first gray/black border.  See the polka dots in this border, gotta love me some polka dots.  So I carried polka dots into the pinwheel and tree background too.  

More gray pieced trees go nicely with this panel.  So happy to have three new wall hangings added to the shop.  But wait there's more coming up on Wednesday when I will share with you my July OMG finish!  

My goal this week :
  • to work with a couple more panels
  • make a reverse S swirl runner
  • make a round wedge topper
Thanks to Linda for hosting To Do Tuesday and to all of you that send out encouragement each week.  I am heading over there to link up.  

My yellow Calla Lily finally opened right before we left for vacation and it is still looking good although it turned more orange now.  


  1. Your panel projects are always fun to see, Vicki, and I really love the snowmen! The black, gray, and red color combo is so perfect for that one. Love the flying geese that make a tree, too. So fun!

  2. there is something about a red pickup truck and Xmas - love it (the snowmen are neat too)

  3. Love the red & green pinwheels accent! Pretty Calla Lily!

  4. You can't go wrong with Snowmen, Trucks , Trees and Snowflakes. Add in some gingham and you have a winner. Love them both.

  5. Very cute - I agree with the comment above that you can't go wrong with snowmen and trucks and snowflakes. Those snowflakes in the cornerstones are cute - are they painted on?

  6. Always fun to see what you are whipping up for the shop, and you know I love the snowmen! Your lily is so pretty!

  7. Your panel projects are so cute with those flying geese trees! I especially love the Frosty one. You said the snowflakes were stenciled?
    Thank you for joining with us at To Do Tuesday!

  8. Oh my goodness! Your projects and quilting are so beautiful! I keep wondering if I'll ever get there with custom quilting!? I can't wait for the day but then I get too unsure when I think about trying it....so back to pantographs I go. Sigh...
    I have white-to-deep pink calla lily blooming outside. They are surprisingly hardy with the heat!

  9. They are terrific. I especially like the gray trees with the red/green pinwheels. It makes more wintery, IMHO. Your Calla Lilly is spectacular!

  10. The calla lily is beautiful! You have a talent for turning panels into wonderful works of art! :)

  11. These are such darling quilts. You have me dreaming of Christmas now. Lol. Have a great week. Happy quilting.

  12. Hi Vicki! I LOVE that panel. This is probably my most favorite project you've done in spite of it featuring SNOW. Everything you chose is just perfect. This one is going to be snapped up in no time at all. And the red truck?!! That is a favorite scene, too. The swirls just imply the snow is whipping around. Brrr. Great job! Finally, your calla lily is just gorgeous. Beeeeutiful! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  13. Hi,
    I love your "panel quilts" so pretty and festive. I really like the Red Truck...it's
    beautiful. Your Calla Lily is very pretty. Have a great day!

  14. What great patchwork and stenciling to accent your panels! The quilting really makes it! Well done! I am not sure I am ready for winter, but it is a UFO connection. I don't think I have seen a golden calla lily. Just beautiful!
