Weekly Progress Update #137

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. √Done
  2. Work on a set of placemats.√Done
  3. Bind a short runner for my sewing machine. √Done

To-Do #1

I wrote a post about finishing Lucy’s I Spy quilt (read it here) and got a decent shot of the front in between some wind gusts. I’m definitely putting the curtain rod on my shed to good use!


To-Do #2

I decided that since I am such a fan of sunflowers that I need a set of four sunflower placemats and have chosen the use the Sunflower for Ukraine block for the center of the placemat, and I will sew 4″ x 12.5″ rectangles to either side to make the placemat the right size. I’ve gotten two blocks done so far. Here is the first one I made on Saturday.


To-Do #3

I am delighted with how nice the Kantha Cloth by Valori Wells in Pomegranate purchased from Etsy shop Modern Quilter looks with some Alison Glass Kaleidoscope Pomegranate binding in the photo below. I love the Kantha running stitch so much (similar to Sashiko but there is not so much emphasis on uniformity of stitches) that I have decided to participate in Alison Glass’ Stitch Club 2022 Kantha Sew-Along that starts April 19th. I have plenty of gorgeous Alison Glass fabric, and I think 2022 is the year to start putting it to good use!


To-Do for the week of March 29th-April 4th:

  1. Make two more Sunflower for Ukraine blocks.
  2. Work on some flying geese for my three temperature quilts.
  3. Write my April 2022 OMG post.

Linking up to Texas Quilt Gal: To-Do Tuesday.

  2. I’m enjoying seeing your I Spy quilt again, and that curtain rod is a great idea. I look forward to seeing what you do in the Kantha sew along.
    Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday!


  3. Fun to see the I Spy quilt on that perfect display! Your sunflower blocks are so pretty, and you know I’ll be watching for your kantha stitching!


  4. Lucy’s quilt is so pretty! I love the colors and the fun center squares in your blocks. Those sunflowers are going to make lovely placemats, too. Have a great week, Mary!
