Weekly Progress Update #133

To-Do for the week of Feb 21st-27th:

  2. Start working on another dog quilt. √Done
  3. Work on temperature and/or Peloton units. √Done

To-Do #1

I really had fun participating in this year’s Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail@ Quilting Gail. I’m a little sorry that I won’t wake up tomorrow and receive another border prompt! Chris@Chris Knits was responsible for the last border assignment, and she chose the Shoo Fly block which gives the perfect opportunity for a fussy cut center square. This sixth and final border is my biggest border and was 5″ unfinished. It also gave me the opportunity to feature the dark French Bulldog fabric from Christopher Thompson’s Blue Carolina collection. My lap-size quilt top finishes at 53″ square.

To-Do #2

I have made progress on my next dog-themed quilt which I will share about on Tuesday when Patty@Elm Street Quilts opens the March 2022 One Monthly Goal linky party.

To-Do #3

I’ve continued to make daily flying geese for my temp quilts. I have paper-pieced squares for the first 8 weeks of 2022 completed for my Peloton project and sometime in March plan to make make two inset circles. This coming week is pretty busy but maybe the following week.

Sunflower for Ukraine

Kristy at Quiet Play has been raising money for the people of Ukraine through the sales of a new pattern called Sunflower for Ukraine. She donated the sales of this pattern to UNICEF Ukraine Emergency Appeal. When the sales of this paid pattern became too overwhelming, Kristy decided to make the pattern free with the request to make a donation to a charity to support the Ukraine. Yesterday Kristy sent out a newsletter that included other ways to help Ukraine, and she provided a link to a different paper-pieced sunflower pattern by Rachel@Kohatu Patterns who is donating the proceeds from the purchase of this pattern to UNICEF during the month of March. I’ve downloaded Kristy’s sunflower block and have also purchased Rachel’s sunflower block (because I can’t have enough sunflower block patterns!), though I won’t be making either of them soon as my current quilting to-do list is long enough! I do want to share a photo of the block my cousin McKenzie (who is on Instagram as @bogey_and_bobbins) made using Kristy’s pattern. I love how she simplified the design using a complex brown fabric.

  4. Love your shoofly blocks, Mary! The fussy cut centers are definitely perfect for your quilt’s theme. The sunflower blocks are tugging at me, too. I think I will go purchase them!

    Hi Mary! Oh, your SAHRR quilt top sure turned out great. I just love how you added the bulldog print into the last border, and I think the dark color really anchors the piece. Thanks for the link to the Sunflower pattern. I have been thinking about making something really summery and those fit the bill for me. Hmm. PP. Yes, I can do it. Maybe a few for a table runner?! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
