  3. Post a couple more times on #IGQUILTFEST2022.√Done

To-Do #1

I was able to get the last four borders done on my Sushi quilt this past week and on Monday I sent it off to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting for edge-to-edge quilting. I had started the appliquéd paws a couple weeks ago. Please don’t anyone think that I am developing much appliqué proficiency because that is definitely NOT the case. I would rather paper piece any darn day!!! Finishing this quilt top is my March One Monthly Goal and I will be linking up with Elm Street Quilts later this month. I wasn’t very happy with the pic below, but I just wanted to get a quick photo before taking it in the house and getting it ready to send to Melissa.


To-Do #2

I worked on my first Peloton inset circle using the tutorial by Susan at Quilt Fabrication. I used Applipops to create the small block circle in the middle. It is glued down but still needs to hand-stitched on (yes, appliqué again!). My seams all meet in the middle, and I honestly wasn’t sure what do with the bulky seam allowances, so I reached out to Rebecca at Rebecca Grace Quilting knowing that I want her to quilt this project for me when I finish it in early 2023. I have to say that Rebecca was so helpful and supportive. She suggested trimming the bulk with duck billed scissors which I did not have but yesterday ordered a Tula Pink pair. I absolutely recommend Rebecca for her exceptional longarm quilting. She’s highly skilled and knowledgeable and is a wonderful collaborator.


To-Do #3

I posted four times this past week on the #IGQUILTFEST2022 as @MRINGER58. My favorite post was on Day 9 of the quilt fest when I shared about a coveted quilt that I absolutely love. This is what I wrote:

Today’s topic is Coveted Quilt. I recently saw a photo of Sarah Schreiner’s 2020 Temperature Quilt that was on display at QuiltCon 2022 in Phoenix. It is jaw-droppingly gorgeous! Here is a pic of Sarah with her masterpiece!

To-Do for the week of March 15th-21st:

  1. Make two mini Pineapple coasters.
  2. Bind Lucy’s I Spy quilt.
  3. Work on my temperature quilts flying geese and/or Peloton project.
  4. I generally don’t put any non-quilting items on my weekly To Do List on my blog, but I’m going to make an exception this week as I need some accountability. My brother and sister-in-law recently sent me an Emeril Lagasse Air Fryer. I need to watch the How To Videos and try a recipe in the coming week. Feel free to share any favorite Air Fryer recipes with me!

Linking up to Texas Quilt Gal: To-Do Tuesday and later this month I will be linking up to Elm Street Quilts: One Monthly Goal March 2022 Finish.

    Hi Mary! Well, you had a very productive week. I just love how Sushi has come together into the final quilt top. I just adore all those pops of red and especially those little puppy paws in the corners. I guess we all can’t love appliqué, just like we can’t all love PP. HAHA! I think that’s a fabulous solution for the center of your Peloton circle – I’ve never heard of that scissors!! I have to look that up. Happy Tuesday, my friend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. Your SAHRR really turned out nicely. Will be fun to see it quilted. Yay for your first Peleton inset circle – it looks great! Oh, an air fryer! What fun!


  3. Your Sushi/SAHRR quilt is so neat! Can’t wait to see how it’s quilted. The Peloton circle is amazing, and yay for Rebecca! Good luck with the air fryer. We have used ours mostly for food that we formerly deep fried, such as corn dogs, French fries, tater tots, chicken tenders, etc, but we also cook our wieners for hot dogs and for baked potatoes. I really like ours and need to explore making more meals in it.
    Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday!


  4. I look forward to seeing how the Sushi quilt finished up! I think the solution of trimming all the points in the center of your Peloton blocks is perfect, and it sounds like you’ll have a lot of applique experience by the end of the year. 🙂


  5. The Sushi quilt is just adorable! I think your Peloton block looks amazing, too. Glad you got some good advice for that middle section. Good luck with your air fryer! I don’t have one, but have heard good things about them.
