Design Wall Monday

 This week, while I am waiting for the next clue for Rhododendron Trail, I am working on Cupids Bows, a quilt pattern from Fat Quarter Quilts. I had just enough fabric to put two of them together and will be gifting them to my daughters sometime before Valentine's Day.

I will also be finishing up the quilting on Sandi's Dresden quilt. Love all the rainbow colors in this one.

Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report

 Hope you are enjoying the long Thanksgiving Weekend. My Sunday involved getting all the Christmas decotations out and putting up our Tree. Holiday Quilts were also installed through out.

Tree all decorated!

Santa and Nutcrackers

This week I was able to finish Clover Fields. I love the colors in this quilt and it will look good in our living room after the holidays. That will give me time to get it quilted.

Design Wall Monday.

 Cloverfields will be on the design wall this week with the hopes that it will be nearing completion. Six more blocks to complete and then some half and quarter blocks. I love how this is looking.

I am also hoping to finish up the last of the Christmas gifts that I am making. I want to get them in the mail early. Will share these after the holidays.

Have a great week, and check out Bonnie Hunter's post for her Mystery quilt coming up the day after Thanksgiving. Introduction and fabric requirements are posted. This will be my 14th year of participating. Hope you can sew along.

Sunday Stash Report

 Nothing added this week and nothing finished. 

My newest pincushion of the month arrived this week! Thank you Sandi. It has been so much fun getting these each month. I have only completd a couple of them, and have a couple more prepped. I am looking forward to getting back to these right after the holidays.

I will be working on Clover Fields this week. So far the flying geese and the half square triangles are done, One more step and then I will be putting the blocks together.

Flying geese.

Half square triangles

A lot of trimming happened for these units, using my BlocLoc. It definitely takes more time to press and trim than it does to sew them together. Below are all the little slivers that were trimmed.

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 236.0 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards
