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!

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.

After all the additions to the stash last week, I am happy to say no adds this week. But also no finishes, yet. Still have two projects on the Design Wall and will be working to get them both finished and off the wall.

Below is a new project that Sandi and I will be working on this year. From Lori Holt called Autumn Love. I am still trying to decide if I want to buy the fabrics, or use fabrics from my stash!

Numbers Remain the same- Looking for a finish soon!

Road To California Quilt Show

Happy February! 
Below are some of the quilts from the R2CA show last week. There was a beautiful variety of quilts this year with a good mix of pieced, applique, and art quilts. Something for everyone. Below are some of my favorites.

My friend Sandi and her entry. No ribbon this year.

Beautiful Minature

Loved the Music Theme

A Lot of great detail on this quilt.

Wow- all those half square triangles.

Red/black beauty

Design Wall Monday

Two projects sit on the Design Wall this week. Happy Place and Good Fortune. 

Happy Place
I finished all the pieced blocks and will be working on the applique blocks next. Still playing around with color placement, but like how it looks so far.

Good Fortune
Four blocks complete on Good Fortune! Hope to make more progress this week and get the rest done. I will be making this one 5x5 rows instead of the 7x7 that Bonnie has for her quilt. 

Have a great week! Happy Sewing!
