Design Wall Monday

 Last Day of February- Bring on March!

This week I will be working on a charity quilt called Dominique from Villa Rosa Designs. This pattern uses 5" squares, background and border, and everything is from my stash. It is a pretty simple quilt, and I have it cut out and ready to sew. I willbe taking it to my sewing group tomorrow and hope to get most of it sewn together.


Next up will be getting started on my #3 UFO which is Flowers for my Wedding Ring. This one will take awhile as it is a Judy Neimeyer pattern and is both paper piecing and applique. I have had this kit for probably 6 or 7 years and it has been waiting to get done.

Flowers for My Wedding Ring

The Cupid Box from Fat Quarter arrived today and I am super happy with all the fun stuff that was in it. I also love the way it was packaged!

A fat quarter bundle called Falling in Love, and a super fun pattern.

More fabrics to finish the quilt in the pattern above. A mini simple folded corner ruler in pink. I was super excited about the ruler, as I was looking to buy one. A keychain and some fun chapstick.

Alwasy super fun to get a box like this in the mail. Fat Quarters outs together these boxes seasonally and you can check out there website here. Get on the mailing list to get notice when the boxes are available-they sell out fast.

Happy Sewing!

Design Wall Monday

On the design wall this week is a small quilt called Stars and Stripes. This was from the Libery box purchased from Fat Quarter Shop last summer and is one of my UFO's. After working on two Bonnie Hunter quilts, it was time for something smaller and simpler!

On the longarm this week is Rododendron Trail.

We are looking forward to some rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Our desert here can really use it.
Have a great rest of the week.

 Finsihed this week was a small baby quilt that will be a charity donation. All fabrics were used from my stash and leftover from a previous project.

Baby Quilt

I attended Quiltcon on Saturday and enjoyed the show and vendors, even though I am a more traditional quilter. Definetly some interesting quilts. Below are some of my favorites.


Beautiful quilting on this one.

Design Wall Monday


This week I am getting started on Sugar Sand Beach, another UFO for 2022. 

Also in the works this week will be cutting 10.5" squares for a couple of backings that are needed. 

On the longarm is a Lonestar quilt for Sandi. This one is all hand pieced and has been a bit of a challenge with all the fullness.

Thursday is the start of Quiltcon, here in Pheonix. This is more of a modern quilt show and is usually in a different city each year.  I am hoping to attend either Thursday or Friday.

Enjoy your week!

Design Wall

 This week on my Design wall is still N. Blues (for short). I am still working on the center of the quilt and hope to complete this week. The eight rows on the right side still need to be sewn together. There are only two more rows after that.

N. blues

Also ready for some hand stitching is the second block of Autumn Love. I am hoping to find some stitching time in evenings this week while we are watching TV.\

Autumn Love Block 2

We are also off to the WM Golf Tournament on Thursday and Friday. It is a super fun event but way too crowded to go on Saturday and Sunday. It is nice to see events getting back to normal.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Sunday Stash Report

No finishes to report this week, just works in progress. Narragansett Blues is in rows on my design wall with much sewing ahead. This is about half of the center below.

Prepped this week was the first of the Autumn Love Blocks. I will be working on this as a block of the month, and this one is for January. Have February almost prepped for sewing down the applique.

Crow and Pumpkin Block

This week a couple of the Ladies from my Tuesday sewing group, decided to go to lunch and hit a few of the quilt shops in the south, Mad B's Quilters Oasis, and Mulqueen's. These were about an hour away from my house, and probably will not get to them very often. I found a few more white with blacks and a couple more fabrics for future project.

Black and Orange doe for a halloween quilt.

More White with Black

Valentines project.
