Design Wall

While awaiting the release of the May UFO from 52 Quilts, I am working on the quilt below. This is the Night and Day Pattern by Eleanor Burns at Quilt in a Day. It looks complicated, but the blocks actually went together very quickly. Blocks are complete, just need to sew the rows and then add three borders. 

Night and Day
Tomorrow is a day off, so hope to get this one complete and add to my Stash Report on Sunday!

2015 UFO Challenge

Hooray my April UFO is complete and just in time for the Parade over at 52 Quilts!

Sisters Nine Patch was started a couple of years ago, when I was looking for a pattern to use up all the red scraps that I had. This is another of Bonnie Hunter's patterns from her earlier book, "Adventures with Leaders and Enders" It is also very large, finishing at 94x94 and has 169 Nine Patch Blocks.

Nice to have this one complete. Now off to see what else I can finish while awaiting the
 May UFO release. Have a great rest of the week!

No finishes this week, but very close on my Sisters Nine Patch. The center is sewn and pressed and all that is left are the borders. Just in time for the Parade later this week.

Design Wall

Happy Monday! This week I will be putting together my April UFO, Sister's Nine Patch. This pattern comes from Bonnie Hunters book, Adventures with Leaders and Enders. This was one of her first books and a quilt that I started a couple of years ago. Glad that I am finally finishing this one.

In between putting this together, I will also be working on the star blocks for Survivor.
Here is my progress so far. All the center for the star blocks complete and the points for the stars in progress.

Have a great week and check out more projects at Patchwork Times.
