Design Wall Monday

This week I am still working on Pearls for Avery, but getting closer to a finish. Circles are cut out and placed. I am almost pleased with how they look. Next step sewing all the circles down.

Also working on quilting Sandi's Chic Kisses- She has named it Kaffe Kisses as she used mostly Kaffe prints for this quilt. Pictures to come! Have a great week!

Design Wall

On the Design Wall this week is Avery's quilt. The background squares are all placed, and I am cutting out all the circles that will go on the squares. I will then machine applique them all down, sew squares together and add borders! Yes a simple quilt with a very fun result. Just have to get going...

The pattern is called Pearls. I am off to get the circles cut out!

Happy Sewing!

Stash Report

A finish this week, but no reduction in the stash as all the fabrics were given to me. This quilt is called Macy's Quilt. Blocks and fabrics were gifted to me from my Macy's team for my retirement.  The Blocks are printed with the different companies I have worked for along the way: Macy's, Robinsons/May and May Company.  I added the star setting, setting triangles and borders. I will be quilting with a star pattern and hope to get on the Longarm in the next week or so. Have a custom quilt to finish for Sandi first!

Design Wall Monday

This week on the Design Wall is what I am calling my Macy's Quilt. The blocks were given to me as a retirement gift, along with extra fabric and I am working on setting them with sashing and more red stars. Here is what is done so far. Blocks finish at 14", so quilt will be on the larger side once the setting triangles and borders are in place.

I like how it is looking so far and hope to have this one complete by the end of the week.
Check back to see my progress!

Sunday Stash Report

This week is a big finish week! Dear Jane is done- well except the quilting part. The top is done and will be ready to put on the longarm in the next couple of weeks after a few other projects are complete. I am also still debating on the scallops. It will most likely be a last minute decision when I get ready to quilt,

RWB Baby Jane

A couple of adds to the stash this week. Sandi was in Maryland and brought back some batiks for my Prairie Star project.

Also this great neutral with girls on it. This will be a fun one to use in a future scrappy quilt,

Dear Jane uses a lot of fabric! About 20 yards in the backgrounds alone. It is nice to finally claim this one for the Stash Report

Used this week:  46 yards.
Used YTD:  106.5 yards.
Purchased this week:  3.5 yards
Purchased YTD: 52.0 yards.

I missed posting last week, as I came down with a kidney infection and was in bed most of the week, so no sewing. 😞😞😞 Back in action this week and looking forward to another finish!
