Design Wall

 

Thanksgiving already! This year has flown by. Enjoy your day with family and friends.


This week on my design wall are more of the Kaleidoscope blocks. Making progress and hope to get them all finished this week and start thinking about sashing.


Spoiler Alert! My Jolly box arrived from Fat Quarter Shop. These are fun quarterly boxes, usually with a pattern, fabric and some fun notions. This one had all of the fun goodies below.


It came with a panel and two charm packs and a cute pattern that will be fun to make. A new rotary cutter, omni rack, stash box for tools and, some clips. And of course some playing cards for those game nights! Next Box is usually available around Valentines.

Sunday Stash Report




This was a small finsih and was gifted to my daughter for her November birthday. It is a fabric basket that I quiltied on my Longarm. It turned out pretty cute and she loved it. Next I will be making one for me!


Purchased this week were the two fat quarter bundles of low volume neutrals. One of our Tuesday Sewing group ladies has a friend who is getting rid of all her quilting stuff, so these were purchased at a great price. And with Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt coming up on Friday, thought this would be a good add to the stash. Check out the link and see if you want to join in on the Mystery Quilt.

Stash numbers for the week:

Used this week: 1 yards.
Used YTD: 187 yards.
Purchased this week: 8 yards.
Purchased YTD:  135.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 51.5 yards.


Enjoy your Sunday!

Design Wall Monday

 

This week I attended two classes, on Tuesday  it was a Four-Patch Kaleidoscope class and on Wednesday, a class using Ten Sisters Grid. Above are the blocks from the Kaleidoscope class, which was a lot of fun. There is a bit of prep work before you cut, but once you start sewing the "Magic" happens. I will be working on more blocks this week as I will need 48 in all for the class. These blocks finish at 4", so not a super big quilt.

The other class, using Ten Sisters grid is under wraps for now, as it will be gifted for Christmas.

Busy week for me, hope you are working on something fun!

More finishes! Two small wall hangings that were purchased as kits from our trip to Sitka, Alaska this past August. Still need to be quilted.



Busy week, finishing up some small projects. That is my theme this month as I wait for the first clue for Bonnie Hunters new mystery quilt. Release date is Black Friday. Check it out and see if you want to play along. I will be changing up the colors, but not set on final ones yet.

Design Wall Monday


 The charity quilt above will be on my design wall this week.This is from kits that my Tuesday sewing group put together for our guild. This is the last one that I have to put together and then I will be helping to quilt all of them. Our guild made 45 tops this summer. The pattern is from a 3-yard quilt book that your can find here. These are fast, fun easy projects to make.

I will also be working on a couple of a behind the scene projects that will become gits for the holiday. More to share on these later.

A busy week for me, with our Guild meeting tomorrow, and the Arizona Pinners Conference starting on Thursday night and Friday. I have never been to a Pinners Conference and am looking forward to it.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hope you all are enjoying your Halloween. Ours is pretty quiet around here, we do not get many trick or treaters in out neighborhood.

Halloween Hoopla

Halloween Hoopla is almost complete. A couple of more seams to put the center together and then borders. Two of the borders are shown in the picture. 

Along with finishing this quilt up I will be working on a couple of easy charity quilts and some gifty items that I will share at a later date. I also have a couple of fall projects I will try to get to this week.

Hope you have a fun Halloween and are ready to tackle some holiday projects.

 A finish will be happening this week! Sashing is almost complete for Oh Say Can You See, and I will be putting it all together this week. It is #1 on my list!


I will also continue to work on the halloween quilt. Have most of the units together and just need to put blocks together.


On the Longarm this week is Bountiful. I put the top together in 2020, and now I am getting it quilted. I had already quilted one for Sandi, so it will be done in a very similar manner. I will just change up a couple of the patterns.

All for me this week, what about you?

Another small project that was finished, were these halloween mug rugs for the grandkids. They were easy to put together and the fabrics glow in the dark.

On my design wall is O Say Can You See. Most of the blocks are pictured above, but it is too large to fit all on my design wall. I will be working on the sashing this week and deciding if I want to add a border.


I will also be sewing more units together for the Halloween quilt I am working on. Here are the 25 patch blocks I have ready to sew. I will be making 16 of these.

Busy week for me! How about you?
