Weekly Progress Update #143

To-Do for the week of May 2nd-8th:

  1. Start working on my Nene quilt. √Done
  2. Start arranging the layout for my Kantha quilt top. √Done
  3. Make more units for my temperature quilts. √Done

To-Do #1

I got all the cutting done for my Nene quilt and have picked the coordinating Kona solids that I will use in the blocks. Here is a photo of the colors that I’ll use in two of the the four blocks.

To-Do #2

I finished my gradient quilt top, and I really like the arrangement. I did, however, decide to not add Kantha stitching to this quilt. I still want to make a Kantha project which will most likely be a color gradient design, but I want it to be smaller and more portable like a pillow or mini quilt. I’ll send this quilt top and backing off for quilting and will use it to cover my recliner in the living room. My Dimension in Dusk quilt has shrunk after multiple washings and doesn’t stay up on my chair anymore. So I need another colorful chair cover!

To-Do #3

I’m caught up with sewing temperature flying geese units. I’ll try to take a pic of the first two weeks of May next weekend.

To-Do for the week of May 8th-16th:

  1. Sew some of my Nene quilt blocks.
  2. Write a blog post about a recent finish.
  3. Make more units for my temperature quilts.

    Hi Mary! Your Nene quilt is really starting to take shape. Your fabric selections are spot on, I think. What a fun project this will be! That is one pretty chair cover, too. I adore all of those fabrics. Good luck with this week’s list – you’ve got this. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. The rainbow gradient is so happy. I’d probably want to opt for something smaller and portable for hand sewing as well!

  6. The Nene quilt looks so interesting, Mary! Love the rainbow gradient strip quilt, too. I agree with you that it’s beautiful without any extra stitching and will be really fun hanging on your chair!

    Pretty! When I first saw the pic I thought you were in the midst of making a Bargello quilt. That will add nice pops of color to your chair. 🙂
