Design Wall Monday

This week I will be awating the next part of Bonnie Hunter's Frolic Mystery- hoping for the big reveal and I can put all of the units together. There sure are a lot of them and I am looking forward to seeing how Bonnie puts them all together in one of her fabulous quilts.

Also on the Design wall are the last two blocks of this installment of the Ella Deacon Quilt. I am still working on the bottom two blocks below. Next blocks will be available around January 15th.

Lastly, I have started on Tannenbaum! First block is complete and working on next section. It starts from the top and each section is a seperate block. The background gets sewn on at the end. A little different process, but I sure like the finished result.

Have a great week!

Design Wall Monday

More projects are added to my design wall this week! My #2 UFO Tannenbaum was picked for this month, so I have pulled out all the fabrics and will be cutting out blocks. I loved this project by Edyta Sitar of Laundry basket quilts, and I was able to purchase the fabrics during Memory Lane's going out of business sale. Fun to start the new year with a Christmas project. 

Tannenbaum

Sandi and I will be off the Road to Ca quilt show later this month. We will be taking two classes, a Mystery Class, where we will be purchasing a kit, and Jelly Roll Dresden Class with Anelie Beldon. I was looking through my stash and came across the Jelly Roll and fabric below as a potential for the Dresden class. This has been waiting for the perfect project for some time, and I am hoping it will work.  There is prep work involved, so will add that to my list of things to do.

Jelly Roll Dresden

I know I will be busy in my Sewing room this week! Hope you are working on some fun projects this week. Happy Sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

My first stash report of the new year, and nothing used or added this week. I have been busy in my sewing room, working on a couple of projects. First up is finishing up the clue 6 for Frolic Mystery. Flying geese need one more side sewn on to complete this clue.

Clue 6

Next up is clue 7- Strips are cut out and I will be cutting more triangles for half-square triangles and pinwheel blocks. This is a little easier clue and I should be all caught up by next clue release this week.

Clue 7
Also in the works are the last 3 blocks to catch up on Ella Marie Deacon Quilt. Below are the completed blocks so far. I am not a big fan of Broderie perse applique, so I am thinking of replacing those blocks with additional pieced blocks.


As if this is not enough to be working on, tomorrow I will share a couple of other projects that will be started this month.

All zero's to start the new year!

Used this week: 0 yards
