Design Wall Monday

This week on the Design Wall is what I am calling my Macy's Quilt. The blocks were given to me as a retirement gift, along with extra fabric and I am working on setting them with sashing and more red stars. Here is what is done so far. Blocks finish at 14", so quilt will be on the larger side once the setting triangles and borders are in place.



I like how it is looking so far and hope to have this one complete by the end of the week.
Check back to see my progress!

Sunday Stash Report

This week is a big finish week! Dear Jane is done- well except the quilting part. The top is done and will be ready to put on the longarm in the next couple of weeks after a few other projects are complete. I am also still debating on the scallops. It will most likely be a last minute decision when I get ready to quilt,

RWB Baby Jane

A couple of adds to the stash this week. Sandi was in Maryland and brought back some batiks for my Prairie Star project.


Also this great neutral with girls on it. This will be a fun one to use in a future scrappy quilt,


Dear Jane uses a lot of fabric! About 20 yards in the backgrounds alone. It is nice to finally claim this one for the Stash Report

Used this week:  46 yards.
Used YTD:  106.5 yards.
Purchased this week:  3.5 yards
Purchased YTD: 52.0 yards.

I missed posting last week, as I came down with a kidney infection and was in bed most of the week, so no sewing. 😞😞😞 Back in action this week and looking forward to another finish!

Design Wall Monday

Design wall this week, making slow progress on my Dear Jane. I have been so glad to have the Long arm back up and running that my focus has been on the quilting part and not the sewing. Finished up two quilts for Sandi and two for me! Next up will be Julie's quilt.

First 3 rows with sashing.
I did have to do a bit of un-sewing as a couple of the blocks were out of order and one was twisted in the wrong direction. I will have to pay closer attention to what I am doing.😃

Have a great week and Happy Sewing!
