To-Do #2

I’ve recently joined Kitty@NightQuilter’s Quilt Your Life Crew. I’m going to document distance on my relatively new Peloton bike. I’ve been riding it at least 10 minutes a day (which for me has been a little over 3K) for the past eight weeks but hope to increase both my daily distance and time on my Peloton in 2022. I played around with different ideas for my Quilt Your Life quilt, but finally decided on a circle to represent the Peleton wheel made from four paper-pieced units sewn together, and then I used a 10-inch acrylic circle to cut out a raw edge 10-inch circle that will be finished as an inset circle with Kaleidoscope black background and also having a small black circle appliqued in the very center to hide the less-than-perfect joins in the center. I’ve cut a piece of black felt to approximate the appliqued center. In my example below I’ve made up a set of data for four weeks with each Kaleidoscope fabric color signifying a different distance, no exercise at all, or at least 10 minutes of an exercise other than riding my Peleton. Pomegranate=3K, Citrus=5K, Poppy=10K, Dragonfly=15K, Mermaid=20K, Cobalt=other exercise, and Charcoal=no exercise. At the end of the year I will have 13 circles that each represent a four-week span in 2022.

Here is the simple paper-pieced unit I drafted in EQ8:

    Hi Mary! I love, love, LOVE the Peloton challenge idea. We have been concentrating on upping our steps, shooting for 10,000 per day. I haven’t made that goal yet but I have to have something to shoot for, right?!! The circles will make for a great representation of the year, with lots of Mermaid and Dragonfly. Oh yes, I DO remember the Treasure Hunt blocks. That will make for a wonderful and cheerful donation quilt. Happy Happy New Year, my friend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
