To-Do #1

SAHRR 2023 has officially started! I’m choosing to make a wall hanging using Alison Glass fabrics and coordinating Kona solids. My center block is VERY small measuring 4.5″ square. Read more about this block here.

To-Do #2

I made a lot of progress this past week on the Ripples Camping quilt for my niece, Kim. I made 600 half-square triangles. I actually made 624 HSTs since I decided to replace one of the fabrics that looked too bright with my more-muted-than-usual color palette. Too bad I didn’t remember Sue Pfau’s training on color design through Passport to Quilting that I took last year. She shared about not mixing brightly saturated fabrics with fabrics that have grey tones in them. See her post here that gives more information about this concept. Below is a pic of my design board where I’ve started designing the blocks. I had to break out three more boxes of pins to get the 625 pieces pinned to my design board (and that does not include the eight 2.5″ background squares for each block)! At the top of the design board is one of the blocks sewn together.

To-Do #3

I did start working on my Daisy Sashiko pouch but ran into a snag and put it in time out for a little while. I do think I’ve figured out a solution to the problem. More on that soon.

To-Do for the week of Jan 17-23rd:

  1. Continue working on Ripples camping quilt for my niece, Kim.
  2. Great new! Rebecca has finished quilting my temperature quilts! And they’re supposed to arrive back to me on Friday. If they do get here this weekend, I plan to start binding them.
  3. Cut a few center on-point squares for my Mosaic camping quilt.

Linking up to Quilt Schmilt: To-Do Tuesday.

  1. Oh my gosh – 624 HSTs? Holy cow, I’m impressed. I love the colors you are using. Now I’m off to read the post about color . . .


  2. And here I was, whining the other day because I had to make 48 HSTs (one inch) – 624!!! Really like how it’s coming together, though! Bummer about the Sashiko hiccup, but it sounds like you’ve got it figured out.


  3. Oh no, I hope the snag isn’t too big of a problem for your Daisy Sashiko pouch. I’m glad you already may have a solution. And how wonderful the temperature quilts are already quilted. I bet you are going to have such a sense of accomplishment when they are complete!

    Hi Mary! Oh, those center blocks are so darn perfect. I love the campfire one!! This is going to be a spectacular quilt when it’s finished. I am certain Kim will appreciate all the time and care you’re putting into the design and sewing of this beauty. Yippee about getting the Temperature quilts back! Woohoo! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
