Nothing finished this week, but progress on Dawns Early light with friendship star units in the works. Still have many more to go!
Purchases made on the our road trip, a couple of backings.
More greys for a couple of upcoming projects. One of which is a new Bonnie Hunter pattern, just released this weekend called Appalachian Autumn. You can purchase it on Bonnies Site here.

Hope you are enjoying your Labor Day! We are spending the day getting ready to leave on a road trip tomorrow to Montana. My Dawns Early light will be coming with me and hope to make some progress on all the units that need to be completed.

I hope to get this quilt completed by the end of September, before the next UFO is called. I have 3 more to go for this year.
We will be taking our time, so I hope to hit a few quilt shops on the way. Looking for a couple of backings, and some cat fabrics for Sandi- check out the Cat project she is working on here.
Have a great week!

Happy Labor day Weekend!
It is a hot weekend here in AZ, with temps reaching around 110. Glad we will be heading out of town on Tuesday for cooler temps!
I was able to get the Snowflake Mystery finished this week. There were a couple of options for the center block: a sawtooth star block, a ninepatch, or to just leave it a plain block. I opted for the star in the center and added 2.5" strips for the borders. I am calling this one done and I like the way it turned out. The best thing is all the fabrics are from my Stash.
Thank you Sue for hosting this one and I am looking forward to seeing how others in our group finished this one.
Usage is getting better. Hope to hit 100 yards by the end of the year, and not add too much more to the stash,
Enjoy your holiday tomorrow!

Stings and lots of strings this week! Working on all the string blocks for Dawns Early light. Hope to get everything prepped to take along on our trip to Whitefish Montana next week. Will be bringing the Janome on this trip to sew together the units and blocks.
Also on my plate for this week are cutting the rest of the blue half square triangles. This quilt takes a lot of cutting and prep work, but it will be worth it in the end.

A long awaited finish! Lilibet's Garden was started in 2006 and I finally sewed down the last leaf! It is looking a bit wonky and will take some miracle quilting to get all the puckers tamed, but with a little extra batting and some crafty quilting I might be able to make it work. Stay tuned...
This quilt finishes at 95x95- yes a big one. But with that it used up quite a bit of stash, 20 yards total with backing and binding.
Have a great week!

This week I will be working on Dawns Early Light by Bonnie Hunter. This is my August UFO, that most likely will spill over into September. As usual there are a lot of pieces in this one, along with string blocks that take time to complete.

Purchases this week from my road trip included some greys/neutrals for a future Bonnie Hunter porject, and some colorful additions to the stash.
Also purchased were some yardage or either future backings, or borders. Love the cactus prints!
Not much progress on the Stash lately, but more finishes on the horizon!
Have a great week and stay tuned for my Design wall tomorrow to see what I will be working on!

Last week found DH and I traveling up to Durango and Ouray Colorada, where we visited a couple of National Parks, and a couple of Quilt shops. We stopped of at Mesa Verde National Park on the way, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison on the way home. The scenery was beautiful and weather was great- nice to escape the heat of Scottsdale for a few days.
First stop was Cortez, where we were able to shop in the Quilt store there. Then on to Mesa Verde, and Durango the next morning.
