Hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends!

Nothing added this week and nothing finished. Under the Influence in the works and hoping for a finish soon, then back to Sew Many Strips.

Have a great week!

Design Wall

This week on my design wall is another Sewing themed quilt. Some of the fabrics were used in Happy Place, so thought I would just finish up using them for this second quilt called "Under the influence of Fabric". I am going to shorten the name to "Under the Influence".  I have had the pattern and fabrics for at least 10 years, so nice to be finally using them along with some others from the stash.


Check back next week to see my progress!

Sunday Stash Report

Wow, over a month since my last post. Time does fly. I finally have a finish to talk about. Happy Place, below is done and ready to be quilted!

Happy Place

Next up were blocks that were made for Sunshine Quilt Guild for our BOM. I was the one that got to bring for April, and thanks to Sandi who sent me the Disappearing pinwheel block to use. I was able to use up 8 yards of my stash in cutting up the blocs and extra fabric I will give to winner in May.

Design Wall Monday

Boy time is flying and it has been a busy couple of weeks. Last week out I was in Orlando for a work meeting, so unfortunately not much time spent in the sewing room. This week I am back, and looking forward to making some progress on Happy Place and Sew Many Strips.

Sunday Stash Report

Still no changes to the stash. Still working on Good Fortune. Center is complete and I am working on the green half square triangle border. Two more to go after this and then I can count this one done. Will be glad to get on to something new.



Green border almost done. 
That something new will be a quilt along in American and Patchwork Quilting's newest issue. The quilt is called Sew Many Strips and is made with all 1-1/2 inch strips. Each week for the next 10 weeks there is a different step.This week is gathering fabrics. I will be using up all my 1-1/2 strips that are already cut- so I will be ahead of the game the first couple of weeks.




Hope to get Good Fortune off the Design Wall this week!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD:  0 yards.

Design Wall Monday

The Design Wall is still holding Good Fortune and Happy Place. Not much progress made this past week. Tomorrow night is Guild where Lynn Mann will be our speaker. I have attended a couple of her work shops in the past and enjoy her patterns. Below are two of her patterns that I have made.
