Design Wall Monday

 


Bonnie Hunter Chilhowie Mystery is on the design wall for this week. Clue #2! Strips and Squares cut and will be sewing at my Tuesday group. Hope to get it finsihed and then will be waiting, waiting, waiting for the next clue on Friday.

Thinking about getting back to Autumn Love, in between Chilhowie. Will at least prep the next applique block which is the Milk Can. I also have another christmas quilt I might work on. Decisions, decisions.😁


Have a great week!

Design Wall Monday

 


This week Chilhowie will be on my design wall. Above are the nine-patches which make up part 
of clue 1.  I will be working on the second half of clue 1 this week, with clue 2 dropping on Friday. It is not too late to join in, use the link above. 


I am doing my own colors this year, red, green gold with neutrals, instead of Bonnie'so range, purple, aqua. Thought I would make it more Christmasy and I have lots of reds and greens!
Enjoy your week!

Design Wall

 

Thanksgiving already! This year has flown by. Enjoy your day with family and friends.


This week on my design wall are more of the Kaleidoscope blocks. Making progress and hope to get them all finished this week and start thinking about sashing.


Spoiler Alert! My Jolly box arrived from Fat Quarter Shop. These are fun quarterly boxes, usually with a pattern, fabric and some fun notions. This one had all of the fun goodies below.


It came with a panel and two charm packs and a cute pattern that will be fun to make. A new rotary cutter, omni rack, stash box for tools and, some clips. And of course some playing cards for those game nights! Next Box is usually available around Valentines.

Sunday Stash Report




This was a small finsih and was gifted to my daughter for her November birthday. It is a fabric basket that I quiltied on my Longarm. It turned out pretty cute and she loved it. Next I will be making one for me!


Purchased this week were the two fat quarter bundles of low volume neutrals. One of our Tuesday Sewing group ladies has a friend who is getting rid of all her quilting stuff, so these were purchased at a great price. And with Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt coming up on Friday, thought this would be a good add to the stash. Check out the link and see if you want to join in on the Mystery Quilt.

Stash numbers for the week:

Used this week: 1 yards.
Used YTD: 187 yards.
Purchased this week: 8 yards.
Purchased YTD:  135.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 51.5 yards.


Enjoy your Sunday!

Design Wall Monday

 

This week I attended two classes, on Tuesday  it was a Four-Patch Kaleidoscope class and on Wednesday, a class using Ten Sisters Grid. Above are the blocks from the Kaleidoscope class, which was a lot of fun. There is a bit of prep work before you cut, but once you start sewing the "Magic" happens. I will be working on more blocks this week as I will need 48 in all for the class. These blocks finish at 4", so not a super big quilt.

The other class, using Ten Sisters grid is under wraps for now, as it will be gifted for Christmas.

Busy week for me, hope you are working on something fun!
