These will be used in a couple of projects that I am working on: my Red/White/Blue Dear Jane and the survivor quilt that was started this past Thursday in a class taken with Joyce Weeks.


Here are my blocks from the Survivor Class.

Design Wall Monday September 2,2013

This week is San Diego Quilt Show Week! If you are in the area it is a must see and is held at the Convention Center in Downtown San Diego. You can check out a couple of my quilts below that will be in the show!
Forest Friends

Road to Bali

Birthday Jane

This week I will be starting UFO #6: Jamestown Landing, another Bonnie Hunter pattern. I have all the blue blocks completed, just need to finish about 60 of the string pieced neutral blocks and then put it all together. This also has one of my favorite border treatments- a piano key border.

As posted previously, I will also be starting the Survivor Quilt by Joanne Weeks in my class on Thursday. Below are the fabrics I will be using.

See what everyone else is working on at Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report September 1, 2013

This post finally finds me with a finish and a small addition to the Stash!  First off the finish is my Jeweled Trees Quilt. This was a pattern form the December 2009 McCall's Quilting Magazine. It is all paper pieced, really a pretty simply paper pieced design. The hardest part was picking out all the fabrics from my stash. Really love how this turned out- will be adding to the quilting que!

The only addition is 20-10" squares from Keepsake Quilting. These are to be used later this week in a class at the San Diego Quilt Show. It is called Survivor and is a scrappy quilt with 9 patches and stars.

I will be using a cheddar for the pink and the blues will be all the scrappy pieces. Shirting's will be the light background.  Should be a fun class.
So here are the updated numbers:
Used this week: 5 yards.
Used Year to date: 112.25.
Purchased this week: 2 yards.
Purchased Year to date: 25.5
Net Fabric Used in 2013: 87.75
