Design Wall Monday

This week on my Design Wall is Antique Rose Star. Below are two completed blocks. They remain in halves until all blocks are done and ready to sew into a top. I am using up all the leftover fabrics from my first Dear Jane Quilt- so pink and brown. Trying to use up the stash! The background has been in my stash for awhile so nice to use it up too.

Below are pieces ready to cut and sew. This pattern uses a template from Marti Michell called Kite and Crown. I am making mine with the 2"version. It looks like there are a lot of set in seams, but with the technique I learned, there are NO set in seams and it sews up in a flash.

I decided to sew up a bunch of units and then make up the blocks. So lots of combinations to choose from. I am starting with 12 blocks and then will see where it goes after that.

Have a great week and a Happy 4th of July!
Happy Birthday America!!

Sunday Stash Report

Wow time is flying- July 1, and half way through the year!

I returned home from Texas last Monday and it has been a busy week at work, so not much sewing done. I did get Asher's quilt finished and it is ready for quilting. That will hopefully happen this week. So I do get to claim a reduction in the stash.

Used this week: 7 yards.
Used YTD:  54 yards.
Purchased this week: 1 yards
Purchased YTD: 39 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 15 yards.

Last week while in Texas, I also started Dear Hannah. Below are the 12 blocks that I completed. They will all be made using Liberty of London fabrics. I signed up for the fat eight program from Westwood Acres Fabrics.

Check back tomorrow to see what else is on my design wall!
