Design Wall Monday

This week I have two projects on the design wall, or more like in pieces next to the sewing machine. Nine patches finished and moving to next step for the Shamrock table runners. 

Also in the works this week is finishing up the first clue for Frolic- Bonnie Hunter Mystery. Next clue to be released tomorrow.

December is the month to start getting together my UFO list for 2020. I know I have many projects in the works that need some finishing up, including quilting and binding. I know 2020 will be a busy quilting year!

Design Wall Monday

On the Design wall this week are the tree table runners. Hope to have them all sewn together by the end of the week. On the Long arm is one of the tree wall hangings that Sandi and I are making for the craft fair for Sunshine Quilt Guild. You can check out the other finished wall hangings at Kwiltnkats.

This is the fourth one quilted, with one left to go. Working on binding for #3 and my plan is to have all 3 done and in the mail to Sandi this week. In between I will be working on the Tree Table runners. We are supposed to have a couple of rainy days on Tuesday and Wednesday, so hope to make good progress on all my projects. Enjoy!

Sunday Stash Report

 Just back from a trip to San Diego to visit family and friends, so no sewing this week and nothing finished. A few additions were made with a trip to Cozy Creative Center and Memory Lane with Sandi. Unfortunately Memory Lane will be closing at the end of the year, so sad to hear of yet another quilt shop closing.

Adds to the stash include the pinks and greens below, purchased for Bonnie Hunter Mystery that will start next week, the day after Thanksgiving. You can find all the information here. Her Mystery quilts are always fun and she gives great directions, with a lot of  tips and tricks. I have never been disappointed with the final quilt.



Also purchased was a neutral that I will use in a future Laundry Basket Quilt Pattern.

Sandi's Mom, Betty, gifted me with the cute purse below and some sewing fabrics for my stash. She always makes great purses and is so generous.

So here are the numbers. I better get busy with some finishes!

Used this week:  0 yards.
Used YTD:  116.5 yards.
Purchased this week:  9 yards
Purchased YTD: 84.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 33 yards.

Have a great week and Happy Sewing.

Sunday Stash Report

One small finish this week, one of the Tree Table Runners. I am still working on sewing the other 4 together, in between quilting the Tree Wall hangings. Three are done with two more to go. I did not get to putting the borders on my Under the influence quilt- so no finish there yet.

It will be a short week here in Scottsdale as I am off to San Diego on Wednesday to see family and friends. Looking forward to my trip, but probably won't get too much sewing done.

Updated Report:

Used this week:  3 yards.
Used YTD:  116.5 yards.
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD: 75.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 42.0 yards.

Have a great week!
