Sawtooth Flutter 12 Blocks
Today is a real Design Wall experiment!  Are you ready to help?  I'm looking for the best sashing option (there are two) and the best border option (there are a bunch =^.^=).  Here we go...
Sashing 1
The small star could work, but not the larger one that is identical in size to the one in the block's center.  It would make for too large a sashing.  I didn't take a photo of Sashing 2.  It is vertical strings with a 2" red square at the unions.

Sashing 1 Border 1

Sashing 1 Border 2
Sashing 1 Border 3
Sashing 2 Border 1
Sashing 2 Border 2

Sashing 2 Border 3
Sashing 2 Border 2 corner needs something in the corner.  Sashing 2 Border 3 corner needs more options.  Maybe with any of these pieces (Sashing and/or Border) you have another option for me to try.  Anxious to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report, July 14, 2019

I have two completely finished (except for the labels) projects to share with you.  First up is Knightley.  The pattern is Bonnie Hunter's Indgo-a-go-go.  Mine finished at 84" x 95".  It is a 2018 UFO.
Kika is the next one at 41" x 41".  This is a Pam Buda pattern, Rebecca's Needles.  It is a bonus pattern that comes with A Prairie Gathering (my project is called Kanton Kull).  The yardage from making A Prairie Gathering gives you enough to make this one too.  You know I couldn't resist to use up fabric!  It is also a 2018 UFO.

These two along with all my other projects can be found on my website if you have an interest.

Using up my stash is what I aspire to in each and every project that comes under my needle.  There are those times when purchases are a must, but for me everything (including my Mom's and Kerry's stash) comes from inventory first -^.^=

This week nothing changes in either USED or PURCHASED.  Sawtooth Flurry promises to change this in the next couple of weeks.  Come back and see progress on it tomorrow!  Happy week ahead.

Design Wall Monday, July 8, 2019

I have been busy working on my Sawtooth Flurry blocks.  Monday had me at four blocks finished.  As you can see there's more.  I asked the question of Quiltville's Open Studio on FB and have learned that a layout has not been designed for this block yet.  With my orphans in the same color scheme, there are four different arrangements, something will surface.  I tried the four patch units and as sashing and they are certainly not a go.  Way too busy!

So I'll keep on making the rest of the 12" finished blocks for now.  My next thought is to split or maybe even third the 3 1/2" vertical red string strips as sashing.  They will appear like a solid red.  Might be to harsh...we'll see.

Have a terrific week =^.^=
