Design Wall Monday

Greetings from Mammoth CA, where we just got some much needed snow. 

This week I am working on Scrap Crystals, my UFO for February. This was started in a workshop in October 2014 with Bonnie Hunter. 
Sandi, Bonnie and I.

I have two of the blocks done and a whole big pile of broken dish units to sew into the rest of the blocks. Busy sewing this afternoon.

What is on your design wall this week?? Check out more at Patchwork Times.
Have a great week sewing and stay warm!

Design Wall Monday

Happy Monday All.

This week I will be working on yet another Bonnie Hunter Pattern, called Scrap Crystals.
I have two of the 20 blocks completed and almost all the 684 blue/neutral half square triangles done and ready to sew into Broken Dish units. 

 This was started back in Oct 2014 in a workshop with Bonnie. Check out the finished quilt here.
Hope to finish this by the end of February to keep up with Twelve in Fifteen!
Check out more great design walls at Patchwork Times. Have a great week!

Stash Report

A Finish! Yes this week I am able to report my first finish of 2015. 
Grand Illusion! 

This was Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt from Nov 2014 and will finish at 90x90, another large quilt. I really like how this turned out, lot's of movement. I have a turquoise backing ordered from Sew Batik for this one. 

Also completed was my block for Sunshine Quilters which will be turned in tomorrow night.
This was a super easy block to make and it will be interesting to see all the others and how it is arranged to make the quilt. All were to be made in Valentines fabrics.

Thankfully no adds this week, so here are the numbers. Still in the red, but making progress. Now on to the next UFO!

Used this week: 16 yards.
Used YTD: 16 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 19 yards
Net Fabric used in 2015: -3 yards.

Design Wall Monday

On the Design wall this week is the Feathered Star project from the workshop taken at Road to CA Quilt Show. One more Feathered star to go and then the setting triangles and blocks. This is a future UFO for this year. 

Also going to finish up the Grand Illusion Quilt, and get going on UFO for February which is another Bonnie Hunter Pattern called Scrap Crystals.

Pretty ambitious for this week. Hope you have plenty of sewing time this week and can check out the other Design Walls at Patchwork Times.
