To-Do #1

I’m so happy to report that I did finish my three temperature quilt tops on January 1st! I’m going to wait to share pics until these quilts are completely finished. Below are the last three 2.5″ x 4.5″ flying geese units I made for 2022 with my town in New Mexico on the top (High 63 Kona Glacier/Low 30 Kona Noble Purple), my stepdaughter’s California Bay Area city in the middle (High 59 Kona Cyan/Low Kona Mediterranean), and my stepson’s city in the state of Washington at the bottom (High 49 Kona Celestial/Low Kona Ocean). The quilt tops are being sent off for quilting to Rebecca at Rebecca Grace Quilting today!

  1. When you make flying geese, do you paper piece? They always look so neat. Looking forward to seeing your camping quilt.


  2. Oh, I can’t wait to see your center block


  3. Oops – hit a button that sent that comment to post before I was ready – LOL. I can’t wait to see your center block, and yay for the temp quilts on their way to Rebecca! So many fun projects!


  4. What a great way to start off the year; congratulations on getting all 3 temperature quilts pieced and shipped to Rebecca. Have fun with your SAHRR block!


  5. You’re amazing to get all three of those temperature quilts sewn up on Jan 1, Mary! I bet they are fun to compare. Looking forward to seeing them quilted!

    Hi Mary! What size are your FGs? What?! You’re not using teal or aqua in your center block?? This is the new 2023 side of you! Can’t wait to see what you start with. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


    • Good morning Roseanne. The flying geese units are 2.5” x 4.5”. I will definitely be using teal/turquoise later in the SAHRR project. I’m starting with reddish orange then will transition along the color wheel! So it’s really not a new side of me!!!

      Hugs, Mary
