Design Wall Monday

Wising you all Health and Happiness in 2019!

This week finds me with a couple of days off, after a hectic holiday season working in the store. I am working on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt, Good Fortune, and have some catching up to do. Have some of the red 4-patches done for the first clue, strips cut for the second clue, and green rectangles and neutral squares ready for clue 3.

Clue 4 and Clue 6 require strip pieces units, and I have papers and strips ready to go. Clue 5 are triangle in a square units. I am going to try to at lease get a few of each complete before the next clue is revealed on Friday. Check out all the clues here, you may want to join in.

I will be off to Rosies today, for some stash additions. Need a backing for Punkin, and a few more greens and blues. Will start out my 2019 stash report with additions, instead of subtractions.

Happy Sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
December is quickly winding down and with it 2018! This will be my last stash report for the year, but first I want to share what Sandi gave me for Christmas- all of my favorite quilting supplies and a super cute pattern for a Christmas tree runner. Thanks Sandi for such a thoughtful gift! Looking forward to making this one- it will be on my UFO list for 2019.

With my last Stash Report I do have a finish! Yes, the Bonnie Hunter Punkin Quilt is finally finished. This was a challenging one with much un-sewing going on. Borders were a bit hard to get all to fit correctly, but at least it is now done! I do like how it turned out and plan on making a table runner this next year to match.

So here are the year end numbers. Used just over 50 yards- Looking to improve for 2019. Check out post tomorrow for progress on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery.

Used this week: 13 yards.
Used YTD:  94 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 39 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 52 yards.

Have a great week and enjoy the last few days of 2018!

Sunday Stash Report

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me. My day job is at Macy's and needless to say it has been a bit crazy. Not too much sewing getting done, so no change in the Stash Report. Working a little bit at a time on my Pumpkins and started Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt. Pumpkins below. Can you see the couple of  blocks that needs to be changed??  I ended up have to do a bit of unsewing to get the top looking they way I wanted. 

I pulled all of my red squares and strips from my stash, for the first step in the mystery quilt-red 4-patches. I have 40 complete with only 200 more to go. I am already behind by two more steps- next up blue/neutral half square triangles and green chevron units/half square triangles. Will be pulling fabrics today for both.

I usually have a hard time keeping up in December with completing the different units for the Mystery quilt, but come January I can usually get it finished. Below are current stash reduction numbers. Hoping for one more finish by the end of the year! Have a great week!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD:  81 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 39 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 42yards.
