Design Wall Mondy

I am taking a short break from Dear Jane, to work on Marigold's quilt. It is called Modern Farmhouse and was in th February 2018 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. It is a simple pattern of half square triangles and squares. I made the blocks a bit smaller to finish at 8" instead of 12". Nine blocks are complete with 6 more cut out and ready to sew this week.

Modern Farmhouse.

Check back later this week to check on my progress! Have a great week!

Sunday Stash Report

First Day of  daylight savings! It is nice to have more daylight at the end of the day, but I hate loosing an hour.  No finishes this week, except my block for Sunshine Guild below. I am looking forward to seeing all the other blocks that will be there on Tuesday Night. These are blocks I might want to win.

Below are fabric adds for the week, a pretty bunch of fabrics for the quilt I will be making for new granddaughter Marigold.

Here is the pattern I will be using, from last months American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. I will also be making extra blocks for the Opportunity quilt that Sandi and I will be making for Sunshine Guild.

Updated Numbers this week find me back in the red! I will be working to change that this month.

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD:  21 yards.
Purchased this week: 13 yards.
Purchased YTD: 30 yards.
