Design Wall Monday

This week I am working on my UFO for the month #9 Scrappy trip around the world. This was started in a workshop with Bonnie Hunter about two years ago. It is going to become our car quilt. I have 9 blocks completed and will make 21 more. After this is completed, I will be back to finishing Talkin Turkey.

I also completed this paper pieced block for our Block of the Month at Sunshine Quilt Guild. It was completed just in time as our meeting will be tomorrow night. Hope I win these blocks!

Sunday Stash Report

Happy Mothers Day to All!

Our road trip to Asilomar last week, brought a couple of stops in a few Quilt shops along the way. So this week I only have additions, no finishes but coming close with Talkin Turkey.

The first stop was Cotton and Chocolate Quilt Company in Thousand Oaks. This shop has a wide variety of fabrics and DH picked out these Kaffe Fassett fabrics that he loved.

 Our next stop was in Pismo Beach at Quilt'n Cousins. Here I picked up the Button Fabric. The rest of the sewing fabrics were purchased at Back Porch Fabrics in Pacific Grove. These will be used in a future Bonnie Hunter project.

 These Fabrics were picked up at Asilomar from The Cotton Patch. It is located in Lafayette CA, but is on campus for the Empty Spools Seminars. These will also be used in a Bonnie Hunter project called Lazy Sunday from her new book.

So my adds for the week ended up to be 20.25 yards and has now put me in the red. Time to get busy and use it up! Hope you had a better week than I did using up the stash. Check out how everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
