Design Wall Monday

Progress being made on Prairie Gathering. This week I am working on round 11, one more to go!

Bullseye quilt is also on the Design floor. I am short two blocks, so will be working to finish them up this week and get this put together. I was going to try to make two quilts, but just don't have enough blocks and I did not want to make any more. So one quilt it is!

I hope to have both tops completed this week. Both of these quilts are part of my UFO list for this year. It is nice to get a little ahead! See more great projects at Patchwork Times.

Design Wall Monday

This week on the design wall is a quilt called Bulls Eye. The blocks below were a block of the month a couple of years ago from Sunshine Quilters block of the month. I was the lucky winner, but had not finished. So this is another of my UFO's for this year.  

The blocks were easy to construct, and the next step is to cut in half both ways to make 4 sections and then mix them up and sew back together. Below are a few of the blocks that are ready to sew. This is one of two projects I am working on this week. The other is step 10 of Prairie Gathering. Will post progress later this week.

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

Design Wall

With my UFO for March completed ( you can see it here), I am working on round 10 of Prairie Gathering and my quilt is growing. Only two more after this one and it will be complete!

Prairie Gathering Round 9.
Also in the works is a quilt for a new Grand Nephew, Jackson, who will be arriving sometime in April. His parents love everything baseball, so it had to be a baseball themed quilt. The pattern below I picked up a Road to California Quilt show, and I may add some blocks to make it a bit bigger. It certainly fits the baseball theme! 

I will be off to Rosie's Calico Cupboard sometime over the weekend to find a few fabrics for this one, after I look through my stash.

Have a great rest of the week. See more design walls at Patchwork Times.

February UFO Finish

It is done! We Be Jammin is finished and ready for the quilting que! This kit by Mckenna Ryan was purchased on a trip to Glacier National Park last summer. I am glad I bought it as a kit, as many of the pieces were fussy cut from the fabric provided to get the shading correct. 

There were many pieces to this fusible applique project, but it was worth all the time and I am happy with how it turned out.

I am linking up with Patchwork Times UFO Challenge here.
