Design Wall Monday

This week on the design wall is a quilt called Bulls Eye. The blocks below were a block of the month a couple of years ago from Sunshine Quilters block of the month. I was the lucky winner, but had not finished. So this is another of my UFO's for this year.  

The blocks were easy to construct, and the next step is to cut in half both ways to make 4 sections and then mix them up and sew back together. Below are a few of the blocks that are ready to sew. This is one of two projects I am working on this week. The other is step 10 of Prairie Gathering. Will post progress later this week.

Have a great week and check out more projects at Patchwork Times.

Design Wall

With my UFO for March completed ( you can see it here), I am working on round 10 of Prairie Gathering and my quilt is growing. Only two more after this one and it will be complete!

Prairie Gathering Round 9.
Also in the works is a quilt for a new Grand Nephew, Jackson, who will be arriving sometime in April. His parents love everything baseball, so it had to be a baseball themed quilt. The pattern below I picked up a Road to California Quilt show, and I may add some blocks to make it a bit bigger. It certainly fits the baseball theme! 

I will be off to Rosie's Calico Cupboard sometime over the weekend to find a few fabrics for this one, after I look through my stash.

Have a great rest of the week. See more design walls at Patchwork Times.

February UFO Finish

It is done! We Be Jammin is finished and ready for the quilting que! This kit by Mckenna Ryan was purchased on a trip to Glacier National Park last summer. I am glad I bought it as a kit, as many of the pieces were fussy cut from the fabric provided to get the shading correct. 

There were many pieces to this fusible applique project, but it was worth all the time and I am happy with how it turned out.

I am linking up with Patchwork Times UFO Challenge here.

Design Wall Monday

UFO for February is just about done, so I am on to the next project that I brought up to Mammoth Lakes. I will be working on Prairie Gathering, a Pam Buda pattern that I started last year, and is one of my UFO's for this year. I really like Pam Buda's Patterns. You can check out her website here at Heartspun Quilts.

Prairie Gathering through Chapter 7

My next round up is the checkerboard round.
Below is the finished quilt. Still have a number of rounds to go on this one.

Prairie Gathering finished.

Stash Report

This week DH and I are back up at Mammoth Lakes for more Skiing. Today was a snowy day so I was able to spend a good part of the day doing a bet of sewing.

Nothing added this week and nothing finished, but check back tomorrow. I should have the top complete for We be Jammin Quilt.

I did finish the block for Sunshine Quilt Guild block of the month. All of the fabric was provided, so can't count this one as a used from my stash. 😊

Sunshine block of the month.
Also completed on the drive up to Mammoth was another Lucy Boston Block.

Have a great week! See additional reports at Patchwork Times.

Design Wall

This week I am working on my February UFO-We Be Jammin. The Bus is complete and I will be adding all the animals. This is a pattern by McKenna Ryan and was purchased on a road trip to Glacier National Park last year. McKenna'a patterns have a lot of detail and a lot of pieces. The Bus had over 40 pieces to layer.

Have a great week and enjoy more design walls at Patchwork Times.
