Design Wall Monday March 19, 2012

Today is my Mom's Birthday, so first thing- a Big Happy Birthday to Mom!  Hope you have a great day and wish I could be there with you!! 

This week I will be working on the Chunky Churndash Quilt- this is another free Bonnie Hunter project and a group of quilters did this as a swap.  We each made 15 sets of two blocks to swap, which is half of the blocks needed to make this quilt. These easy 6 inch blocks were very addicting, and it was quick work to make up the other 30 needed to finish this quilt. They are set with hourglass blocks, which I will be working on this week.  Below are the blocks that I received from the Chunky Churdash Swappers.

I love how everyone did something just a little bit different. Hope to have the quilt top completed this week if I can get some sewing time in.

Sunday Stash Report March 11, 2012

This week finds me on vacation in Mammoth Lakes for some skiing, relaxing and some sewing. I always bring my sewing machine on vacation to catch up on my sewing and hopefully get a few things completed. 

Below is a my Quiltmaker mystery quilt started in 2011 which should be completed in the next few days. Started sewing the blocks together and will add a couple of borders. I also brought along my Bonnie Hunter Mystery"Orca Bay" which I also hope to complete. Will update you on my progress later this week.

As for my Stash Report, nothing added this week and nothing used. Hope to change that by the end of the week. Check out how everyone else did last week at Patchwork Times.
