Weekly Progress Update #180

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

  1. Continue working on Ripples camping quilt for my niece, Kim.√Done
  2. Start binding my temperature quilts. √Done
  3. Cut a few center on-point squares for my Mosaic camping quilt. √Done

To-Do #1

I got six more Ripples blocks done for Kim’s camping quilt. I’m enjoying how this project is starting to take form.

Ripples blocks 1-3 and 6-8

To-Do #2

I got the temperature quilts back from Rebecca on Friday and had them all trimmed by early Saturday morning. I find quilts with Minky backing a little more challenging to trim but thankfully I had borders sewn on the front, so I wasn’t worried about trying to protect the points of any of the flying geese while painstakingly trimming. I’m not going to share any pics of the quilted temp quilts this week–SORRY–but I have decided that when I finish these quilts (and it should be this week), I will write a detailed post about the process involved in making three temperature quilts at the same time. And I also promise to share plenty of photos and links to previous posts about these temp quilts. Over the weekend I machine sewed the binding on all three quilts. I also machine stitched the Kona Charcoal binding on the front of my New Mexico quilt but decided that the less-than-perfect stitching shows up too well on this fabric, so I pivoted for California and Washington, and I’m hand-stitching the binding down on these two quilts which definitely is a more time-consuming task. But one that will be worth it as the end result will more nicely frame Rebecca’s exceptional quilting. Get ready to be WOWED!

To-Do #3

I have started to fussy cut some 3″ on-point center squares for my camping quilt. I am using Amy Friend’s Mosaic Story block pattern.

First seven fussy cut on point squares for Mosaic quilt

To-Do for the week of Jan 24th-30th:

  1. Make the first border for SAHRR2023.
  2. Finish binding my temperature quilts and write a post about them.
  3. Finish my Sashiko Daisy Pouch and write my Jan 2023 OMG Finish post.
  4. Continue working on Ripples camping quilt for my niece, Kim.

    Hi Mary! Are you making a Ripples camping quilt for yourself or are you using a different pattern? Kim’s version is coming along so nicely. I am really looking forward to the temperature quilts’ post and the reveal. I know Rebecca does a fabulous job quilting, so your hand binding will frame them well. {{Hugs}} a bunch! ~smile~ Roseanne


  4. Mary all of your projects look lovely! The camping themed fabric has me thinking ahead to warm, sunny days. I’m looking forward to seeing your temperature quilts. Thank you for linking with To Do Tuesday. Have a wonderful week stitching! 😉
