Design Wall Monday

As I am waiting for the UFO for September to be announced at 52 Quilts, I am working on the third of my BOM for this year, Union Blues. I am a bit behind on this, so will use the extra few days left of August to get a little caught up. I will be making 48 of the block below.

Next up will be 22 triangle units and then I will be almost caught up.

Union Blues
Love this Quilt! Looking forward to spending some quality time working on the blocks!

Design Wall

This week finds me working on the next installment of Prairie Gathering. This is one of the BOM's slated for completion this year. For month 7, the flying geese borders were added along with a mall stop border that I still need to add. Other units were also made this month to use for future rounds. 

Hoping to also get back to Union Blues this month. This one I am behind on and need to do some catching up.

Enjoy what is left of the week! See more Design Walls at Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report

This week has been a hot one in San Diego and not much change in the Stash. A small finish for this week, my August UFO, a pattern called Drop from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. It finishes at 15x17.

Just a small purchase from Rosie's Calico Cupboard, some stripes for the Lucy Boston Quilt I am slowly working on. Below are my latest blocks. They are all hand sewn, which I never thought I would be hand sewing a quilt! But I do enjoy picking out the fabrics and fussy cutting to see what design I can come up with. It is also a great project to take on the road.

Only a slight change in the numbers this week. Check back next week, when I hope to have my Winston Ways finally done. Also see other reports at Patchwork Times. Have a great week!

Used this week: 1.5 yards.
Used YTD: 118.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 1 yards.
Purchased YTD: 105.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 13.5 yards.

Design Wall

This week I am visiting family in Angeles Camp, up in the Sierra Foothills. I brought along my August UFO, Drop, a mini quilt that takes 2.5" squares.  I did not bring my Janome this time so I am using Mom's Bernette.

Below are some of the finished blocks, which finish at 2.5"and the centers that finish at 1.5"

This should finish up fast, and then I will be on to one of the 2 Bonnie Hunter Quilts left to finish this year, Midnight Flight and Lazy Sunday. Or I might get back to the other two BOM's that are needing some attention. Enjoy the rest of your week and check out more Design Walls at Patchwork Times.

I finally get a little stash relief, with a finish this week! The last border for Freedom Rings was sewn in place last night. This quilt is by Paula Barnes and was a block of the month in 2012. It is one of three block of the month quilts that I hope to finish this year. I enjoyed making all the star blocks and most of them were pretty easy.

Back in the black with another finish on the horizon! Have a great week and check out more at Patchwork Times,

Used this week: 18.0 yards.
Used YTD: 117 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.

Design Wall

This week finds two projects on the design wall. Freedom Rings below is in the final stages of assembly and hope to be complete by the end of the week. Just need to find a bit of sewing time!

Winston Ways is also on the Design floor, where I am busy sewing together the rows and have borders all ready to go! Below are just a few of the 30 blocks in this quilt.

If that is not enough, my next UFO up is #6, which is a mini! Hooray! I might have a chance to get it done this month.

Happy August and stay cool doing what we love! Sewing!

No change in the stash this week, but Sunday found DH and I at Balboa Park at the San Diego Museum of Art where there was a great exhibit called Quilts and Color, from the collection of Pilgrim and Roy. There were some outstanding examples of antiques quilts in excellent condition on display. The exhibit is from the Boston Museum of Fine arts and will be in the park until Sept 4. This is a must see if you are in San Diego! Below are a few of my favorites!
