Design Wall Monday December 3, 2012

This week I will be working on the new Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, called Easy Street. The first clue was released the day after Thanksgiving, and new clues will be released every Friday for the next 5-6 weeks. Bonnie's mystery quilts are always fun and usually have lots of little pieces. We will see how this one turns out!  

Here is the first step almost finished-just have to sew into 192 4-patches.

Step two involves cutting triangles and sewing into flying geese units.

I am already behind- but check out Sandi over at Kwiltnkats. She has already completed the first two steps. Ok, so now it is time to get sewing!!!

I also completed the Blocks for Sunshine Quilt Guild, which meets this Tuesday Night. Anyone who wants to, purchases a block for $1.00 and then the completed blocks go in to a drawing. This one is all in Fall colors.

Time has sure flown! Can't believe over a month has passed since my last post. Thanks Lynne for reminding me!!

It has been a sad time for our family this past week as we lost our beloved Father, Husband, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, James Boldt. He left us very peacefully this past Monday and is now in Heaven with the angels. We will miss him greatly!

Jim on his 84 Birthday.

October is here and almost gone! The weather is final changing in San Diego and we are actually having a rainy day today- perfect for football (or baseball-go Giants!) and getting caught up on all those little things. Below is one of my favorite fall quilts hanging in the house.

Design Wall Monday August 6, 2012.

This week I am on vacation!!  Visiting family this week in the Sacramento area. Of course the Janome is traveling with me as my Sister and I have a block project that we are working on.  I hope to also work on more of the Dear Jane Blocks. Below are the latest finishes.

I have also been working in the string blocks for my Jamestown Landing quilt- another Bonnie Hunter pattern, which is featured in her new book, String Fling. Check it out at Quiltville. I love making these string blocks and it uses up all those small little pieces from the stash. Only 110 more to go!
