Weekly Progress Update #136

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

  1. Make two mini Pineapple coasters. Nope
  2. Bind Lucy’s I Spy quilt. √Done
  3. Work on my temperature quilts flying geese and/or Peloton project. √Done
  4. Watch the How To Videos for my Emeril Lagasse Air Fryer and try a recipe in the coming week. √Done

To-Do #1

I did start making a couple paper-pieced Pineapple coasters but ran into some difficulties sewing the different sections together, and honestly I just wasn’t having fun. I decided it’s time to take a break from fiddly paper-piecing. I absolutely love straight-forward paper piecing like my temperature flying geese and my Peloton units, so I haven’t lost my fondness for sewing on paper! And most likely I’ll do some more complicated paper-piecing down the road like this Colorburst Quilt Block from Sassafras Lane that I purchased yesterday.

To-Do #2

I got Lucy’s I Spy quilt bound on Sunday, but it was too windy to take an outside photo. I decided to just take a pic of the quilt back which I just love. It features Sarah Watts’ Birthday Panel in Teal.


To-Do #3

I continued to make daily flying geese for my temp quilts and also made some progress on my Peloton project. Here’s a photo of the units I paper-pieced for Weeks 5-8 of 2022 (Jan 29th-Feb 25th). What looks like burgundy is actually Alison Glass Pomegranate, and those strips signify 10 minutes on the bike. The Citrus yellow is 15 minutes, Poppy is 20 minutes and the Dragonfly (turquoise) is 25 minutes on the Peloton bike.


To-Do #4

I watched the Air Fryer videos and made pork chops on Sunday in my new air fryer. Unfortunately they were a little overdone. I think my next recipe is going to be green beans. My hair stylist raved about how good green beans tossed with some grated parmesan cheese are made in the air fryer.

To-Do for the week of March 22nd-28th:

  1. Get some pics of  the front of Lucy’s I Spy quilt and write a post about this finish.
  2. Work on a set of placemats.
  3. Bind a short runner for my sewing machine using Kantha cloth by Valori Wells in Pomegranate.

  1. That Colorburst quilt block is really something, Mary! Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. Meanwhile, your Peloton blocks are looking great! I love that you’re sewing up something very meaningful to you.


  2. Your Peloton blocks are looking great! Will be fun to see that Colorburst quilt take shape when you begin working on it. That quilt backing is fun!


  3. Yep, I have to remember to take a break when I’m not having fun. That Colorburst pattern is beyond gorgeous! I LOVE the birthday panel, now I’m looking to purchase it online – gee thanks. 😉
    Thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday!

    Hi Mary! Ooh, that next quilt, Colorburst, looks gorgeous. It looks right up your alley. Do you have a plan for fabrics yet? The back of Lucy’s I Spy quilt is so fun! I’ve never seen a fabric like that but that would be perfect for a newborn! I can easily imagine pictures being taking on it monthly for the first year! Woot woot for the turquoise Peloton! You’re building up your time. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


  5. The back of the quilt is fun with the birthday month print, and I look forward to seeing more of that finish. Looks like you’ve been really consistent with time on the Peloton and with staying up to date with it’s piecing!

    I love that Colorbusrt pattern. I have a very wee paper pieced pattern I want to do, just need to sit down and pull fabric for it. Good luck with your weekly list!
