Design Wall Monday May 20,2013

Spending some time up in Angels Camp this week with my Mom. It is always good to get away and visit with family. I always take my Janome with me when I travel- there is always some time to work on a project or two.

So this week I brought the paper pieced forest animals for my new granddaughter's quilt. I was able to get four of them completed last night. Just have to draw in a few of the details. There are 8 more to go. I am also working on the lay out in EQ7 and have settled on a couple of design choices. Hope to have all the blocks finished this week and start putting it all together when I get home.

Hope this finds all of you working on something fun this week.  Check out all the other great projects at Patchwork Times.

Stash Report Sunday May 19, 2013

This week finds me in Sacramento. My nephew's wedding was on Saturday night and I am staying a few more days visiting family. We were able to take some time today to visit a quilt shop in the Rancho Cordova area called Quilters Corner. It is a great little shop and has something for everyone. I loved the selection of Reproductions and picked up the fabrics below for my Dear Jane Quilt. If you have the chance to visit, check out the restroom!

So, no finishes this week, just a few new additions. I am going to need to stay out of the quilt shops for awhile!!  Check out how everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.

Used YTD: 40.25 yards.
Purchased this week: 4 yards.
Purchased YTD: 23.5yards.
Net fabric used in 2013: 16.75yards

Just a little behind in my postings!!!  This week I am working on a couple of projects.

Here are the latest finished Dear Jane Blocks, Have about 5 more prepped and ready for sewing this week.

This is the center of the Medallion Quilt. Now just have to cut all the borders and sew the whole thing together. Trying to get this complete, cause I am almost there!

 This is what I will be starting this next week. Paper pieced forest animal blocks for the quilt for my new granddaughter!
