Design Wall Monday

Happy Birthday to my DH today!

 With all the units completed for Prairie Star, I will be sewing them all together this week. There are alot of Y-seams in this part. Hope to have this quilt finished this week and in the longarm que.

Next up are these Lemoyne Star blocks that were cut with the Accquilt. I used a pack of 10" squares that I had in my stash and cut 10 blocks in about 5 minutes, all ready to sew! I am really loving my new Accquilt cutter, it has been great for cutting strips, especially binding strips.

This will be a fun red and white quilt with sewing themed fabrics. Tomorrow will be a workshop with Sunrise Quilt Guild. We are doing Celtic Initials, using fusible binding. This process will be a first for me. Check back for pictures later this week

Sunday Stash Report

 Happy October! The year is flying by and I am happy for the cooler weather here in AZ, although today it will be 92.

Finished this week is Vintage Christmas. I am happy with the results and hope to get quilted this week, to be ready for the holidays. The binding and finishing trim are the last month of this BOM from Stitchin Heaven and are on the way. Super fun blocks to make and I will be using up some of the scraps for some Mug Mats for the Grandkids.

 This week on the design wall are two projects. Vintage Christmas will be up for a finish. Blocks are done and sashing and borders are needed to complete.

Next up I will be working on the border units for Prairie Star. Below is where I am so far with center and side units complete. It will all be sewn together when the border units are done.

I like how it looks so far and have only changed out one fabric. This has been a challenging quilt, but I am enjoying the paper piecing process.

Have a great week and happy sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

It is a wet, rainy day here in AZ! No complaints, cause we can always use the rain.

 DH and I  are back home from our Road Trip and what an amazing time we had. We set off for Bryce Canyon National Park last Tuesday with a drive through Staircase Escalante National Monument, on  scenic highway 12.  We arrived mid afternoon and took a secnic drive in the park. 

Natural Bridge

The next day we took a hike among the Hoodoos, through Wall Street and Queens Garden. It was a very beautiful hike with many twists and turns through the canyon. We took so many pictures, below are just a few.

 Today we are in Capital Reef National Park, with beautiful weather. 

The scenery was beautiful with cliffs, domes bridges and canyons. We drove a secnic drive that ended up on a dirt road and hiked up Capital Gorge Trail.

We stopped for fruit Pies from the historic Gifford House in the Fruita area of the Park. Then on to another hike to Hickman Bridge

This week I will be working on some hand sewing projects, bindings and a couple of wool projects are prepped and ready when we have some down time.

Busy week on the road! Happy Sewing!
