Check-in of Tuesday's Two from Melva Loves Scraps

 Has it really been only a week since I last posted???  It flew by!  Yet there was so much that went on...

My To-Do List consisted of...

❧ Piecing the top for the third memory quilt in a month. 

❧ Write the last Kansas City Star quilt block pattern.

Did I meet those two goals?  I can answer with a resounding "Yes!"

The Year in Review and Plans for 2020 from Melva Loves Scraps

Hey there!

As we prepare to usher in the new decade and year 2020 resolutions are being thought of and plans considered for implementation... but how did I do with my goals for the current year?  

My list was quite brief... just three items.

✔#1 - Assemble and complete the Sunbonnet Sue blocks that I got from Dave's aunt.

The quilt has assumed its new home with Dave's aunt.  She has placed it on her guest bed which happens to have an antique headboard, close to the same age as these Sue's.   




















✔#2 - Continue participating in weekly linky ...
