Design Wall Monday

This week I am working on the second clue of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, En Provence. All pieces are cut and ready to sew. Hope to have some time this week to finish all before the next clue on Friday. I still have a few more four patches to sew also.

There are 100 of these units to sew together and will look like the ones below. These are a picture of Bonnie's finished units.

Have a great week and hope you have time to get some sewing in. See more at Patchwork Times.

On the Road!

This week finds me in Mesa Arizona at the Wandermere Conference Center for the 
Southwest Statler Sibling Retreat. I am very lucky to have a Statler Stitcher on my Gammil Longarm and was able to get a spot at this retreat. We will have two days of instruction from Sharon Perry from House of Creations. Sharon is from New Zealand and designs some great digital quilting patterns along with teaching all of the different capabilities of the Statler Software.
