Design Wall

It seems like I always have two projects going at once, and this week is no exception. With my May UFO already complete, I am working on another UFO and a swap. I have pulled together enough batik strips to make the last few blocks needed for Scrappy layered log cabin and that is the first project that I am working on. Below is a picture of Sandi's finished quilt. 


First this week I will be working on the string units for a swap that I am participating in. These are due by May 22- boy it came up quick. I have about 10 complete and need to make about 50 more.

Below are the finished Triangle units for Union Blue. I will get back to that next week!

Have a great weekend and see more projects at Patchwork Times!

Sunday Stash Report

Nothing added to the stash this week, and nothing to report used. I did finish up four blocks for our block of the month for Sunshine Quilt Guild's meeting on Tuesday Night. These blocks were fun and simple to put together using batik strips randomly placed. I like they way they turned out. Would not mind winning these!
Sunshine BOM

As I was putting these blocks together, I got our a UFO from a couple of years ago. This was started in a class at Road to California, called Scrappy Layered Log Cabin. 
The pattern is by Karen Eckmeier. I only need to put together about four more blocks to finish. So, while I have my Batik strips out, I think I will try to finish this one.

Design Wall

With my April UFO complete, this week on my design wall are the flying geese for Union Blues. This will take awhile as there are so many of them.

My friend Sandi over at Kwiltnkats gifted me with pieces to make the Dawns Early Light block.

Dawns Early Light is a block in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Magazine. It was designed by
 Bonnie Hunter. Sandi gave me enough string blocks to make enough blocks for the entire quilt. All I will need to add are the half square triangles, which I have some left from another project that I will use. Looking forward to putting these blocks together in between other projects.
