Design Wall Monday April 15, 2013

Happy Monday!

On my design wall this week is the Medallion Quilt. I am making progress, and have all of the blocks completed and I am working on the center Medallion. This is my UFO for April and hope to have it finished before leaving on a business trip later this month.

12 blocks completed for Medallion Quilt

84 sections done for pinwheel blocks.

Here is what the completed quilt looks like.

Sunday Stash Report April 14, 2013


No finishes to report this week, but did do some adding. Purchased the fabrics below at Country Loft in La Mesa. The first are more blue/shirting for the Dear Jane Quilt. The second is a block of the Month that Sandi and I will be working on together, most likely a 2014 project. We purchased the eagle fabric, but will be making the blocks out of fabric from our stash.

This week also marks another Birthday- I just love birthdays, you get to celebrate all month long!  Sandi gave me the neatest gadget below, called the curve master. It is a foot that will fit almost any machine and will sew curved pieces together perfectly. There is a great Demo on YouTube.  Check it out.

So here are the numbers for the week- hope yours were better than mine! Check out how everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 40.25 yards.
Purchased this week: 3.75 yards.
Purchased YTD: 13.0 yards.
Net fabric used in 2013: 27.25yards

Happy April Fools Day!

This week (and for the month of April) I will be working on the projects below. The Dear Jane Blocks were started in the workshop taken last week. I was able to complete 10 and have 6 more applique blocks prepped and ready for hand sewing. My goal is to try and fit in the blocks between the other projects below.

Medallion Quilt, UFO for April, have 6 of the blocks completed.
