Design Wall

 Prairie Star remains on my Design wall this week, but progress is being made! I am now working on step 5 of 6, and just maybe, I will have all steps complete by the end of the week and will be able to start sewing sections together.

Steps 3 and 4 Complete

Step 5 in progress.

I am really happy with how it is turning out and enjoying the paper-piecing process. I have had to change up a couple of fabrics, but so far so good. Last step is the outer border pieces. Hope to start them later this week 

Hope you are working on a fun project this week. Enjoy!

Sunday Stash Report

 September is here and today is my oldest daughter's birthday! Happy Birthday Kayleigh!

Two trips to Rusty Barn Sewing and Craft show on Thursday and Friday, yielded the goodies below. So much for the Stash reduction this week.

This fun kit came home with me. Called Arboretum below.



Americn Gatherings FQ Bundle for a future project.

Backings for Charity Quilts

FQ adds to stash.

Some nice greys.

I also watched a demo on EZ Paper piecing, where the pattern is printed on a super lighweight foundation and so no tearing out of papers. Also purchased a pattern to make up some placemats.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 175.0 yards.
Purchased this week:  25 yards
Purchased YTD:  127.0 yards.
