Design Wall


Now that Modern Christmas is complete, I am finishing up a charity quilt that was started last year. Blocks were made with my crazy quilt die on the Accquilt. It sure made it easy to cut and sew these crazy blocks together. This week I will also be wotking on the binding for Prairie Star. 

On the longarm this week is O say can you sew. I just finsihed quilting this one for Sandi, and she FINALLY recieved it, so thought I would get mine done.

Have a great week and happy sewing!

Making progress on my Modern Christmas Quilt. I have 16 more ornament blocks to finish this week. They are all cut out and ready to sew. 
Tomorrow my guild is having a sew in and we will be working on charity quilts. I spent most of today cutting out kits and preparing binding for all to work on. I will be putting together backings for quilts that I will be quilting and hope to maybe get a kit togehter. We are using patterns from the 3 yard quilt books, which go together quickly.

On my longarm this week is Prairie Star by Judy Niemeyer. I finished piecing the top last year and am finally getting to the quilting. I am using custom patterns by Watasch Quilting. After this I will be quilting up a few more charity quilts. 
Happy Sewing!

On the design wall is the last of my Valentines Runners. This one is using up a mini charm pack and a little bit of yardage. The patten is one that I found for free on the internet. 
You can get it here. I hope to also get back to Modern Christmas this week. 

It will be a busy week here in AZ, with the Superbowl on Sunday and the WM Golf tournament going on. Almost 1 million visitors here this week in the desert. 
Might be a good week to stay close to home.😁 
Hope you are working on someting fun!
