Design Wall

It has been one busy week, first a trip to Road to California quilt show, where I was able to take a couple of great classes and then a quick turn around to a skiing/sewing week in Mammoth Lakes.

Sandi over at Kwiltnkats was my partner for the Quilt Show where we took the Batik Feathers Class with Donna Lynn Thomas. It was a great class where we learned some new tips and how to use a new ruler, the Omnigrip on point ruler. 

Here I am with Donna and my finished block.

The next day was spent viewing the show and shopping! Later that evening we took a Mystery Class using Downtown Abby Fabrics.

Here is Sandi with her quilt, Kookaburra, that was entered in the show.

Here are all the great things that I found. More on this in a later post.

So now I am here in Mammoth, working on my Grand Illusion Quilt this week. The Blocks are done, the sashing done and ready to put together. But wait! I forgot to cut the right size squares for the sashing. Oh No! Guess I will get as far as I can this week and finish up on my return. Guess I won't be making the parade this month!

Hope you are working on a great project this week. Get some great ideas at Patchwork Times.

Design Wall Monday

This week I am making progress on my Grand Illusion Quilt.
The units are finished and I have 3 blocks assembled. Only 22 more to go! 
Then the sashing and borders. Hope to finish in time for the Parade over at 52 Quilts!

This next week I will be making my annual trip with Sandi, over at Kwiltnkats, to Road to California Quilt Show. We try to go every year and take a class or two. This year we are taking a class called Batik Feathers by Donna Lynn Thomas, and a Mystery Quilt class that involves Downton Abbey Fabrics. Looking forward to both classes and seeing the show.

Batik Feathers.

Hope this week finds you working on something fun and getting it completed!

Design Wall

My First Design Wall of the New Year, finds me working on Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion, which was reveled on New Years Day. This also happens to be my UFO for January and hope to have it finished up in time for the Parade over at 52 Quilts.

Image of finished quilt. I love all the movement.

I have a bit more sewing to do with some of the units, before I get to putting the blocks together, but making progress. Will see how far I can get by the end of the week.

Half of the chevron units waiting for the black to be added.

Happy Sewing and have a great week!
