Sunday Stash Report

 Two weeks gone by and still no change in the stash. Nothing finished and nothing added, but I am getting closer. String blocks are done and cut into triangles with all the papers removed. This is a my chore that I do while watching TV.



Next up is sewing them back together with a red strip in the center. Then I am on my way to getting the borders on  Dawns Early Light! Boy, this one has been quite the process and I am looking towards a couple of smaller, easier projects when this is done.


Updated Numbers below. Check back for to see what is on the design wall-maybe something that will be finished this coming week!

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 154.0 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD:  94.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 59.5 yards.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Design Wall Monday

 Dawn's Early Light is still on my design wall, or floor, as it is too big for the wall. Progress is being made on the blue string blocks that will be the biggest part of the border. I am about half way there.


Just so I would not get too bored with this project, I am also working on the pumpkin table runner. Two more blocks complete and two more to go.


The table runner might be done first! Happy Sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

 Back from our road trip to Winslow AZ, for DH birthday. Yes, we did get a picture "Standing on the Corner in Winslow AZ"  from that famous song "Take it Easy" by Jackson Browne and Glen Frey. I think this is the only thing that Winslow is famous for. 😁



Of course a side trip to Holbrook, and a visit to PaintedDesert Quilts was in order. This meant a few adds to the stash this week.  More reds and blues and some buttons below. Have used up a lot of blues for Dawns Early Light.

Fat quarters.

I could not pass up the pin fabric or the orange with spider webs- both will find a home in future projects.


No finishes this week, but getting closer! Have a great week!

Design Wall

 This week finds me working on the next set of  blue string blocks for Dawns Early Light. This will be the last step and will finish off the borders.

Strings and papers

I needed to start on a small project with a quick finish after all the work on Dawns Early Light, so pulled out this kit for a tablerunner purchased awhile back. Pattern is from the Witch's Night Out book, by Sew Emma.  Here are the first 4 blocks, with hopes to get a few more complete inbetween the string blocks. Aren't these little pumpkins so cute?!

Four Pumpkins

Tablerunner project

While I probably won't get either project finished this week, hope to make a dent in the string blocks and get a few more of the pumpkin blocks done. Have a great week.

Sunday Stash Report

 No finishes or adds in the last two weeks, just busy working away on Dawns Early Light. This has been a very labor intensive quilt with a lot of pieces and steps. So far I have the center and sashings on. I keep checking to make sure all the friendship stars are going the right way. 😅


Two more rows on sashing to go and then on to the string pieced border. Love how it is looking and just order a backing from Missouri Star Quilts called Constitution. Thought that would be fitting for this Red/White and Blue beauty.

Also finished last week are my September Blocks for Heart & Hand Applique group. October's blocks are picked out and ready to be prepped. This has been a fun monthly project and very portable.
