Design Wall Monday

This week I have a couple of things I am working on. First off is my Lilibet's Garden, slowly making progress with sewing all the applique pieces down. This one needs to be completed by the end of the month. 

Next on the list is Pfeffernuse, which is on the floor ready to be sewn into rows. As you can see in the lower right corner, I am short one block! Will be putting that together before I go any further. I am also working on a string border for this one- thanks Sandi for the idea!

Lastly, I am working on our swap which is due at the end of November. We are all making the purple and blue blades for a quilt called Midnight Flight, by Bonnie Hunter. I have about 100 half way done with some bonus triangles to use in another project.

What are you working on this week. See some great design walls and  a lot of inspiration at

Sunday Stash Report

This week my stash is going in the wrong direction, with only a couple of additions and no finishes!

The  brown fabric  below, was purchased at Cozy Quilts, as a backing for my Pfeffernuse quilt, which is now on the floor waiting to be sewn into rows. The green was just a great piece to add to my stash for a future project.

I also added the blues and green from Memory Lane Quilt Shop, for Bonnie Hunter's Scrap Crystal quilt which I started in a workshop last week. I was lucky enough to take two workshops with Bonnie last week. The other one was Winston Ways. Both are from her new book, More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
