Design Wall Monday, December 22, 2014

Just a few days left until Christmas is here.  I thought I'd share with you a game that you might enjoy...not to mention family and friends who my come to visit.  I hope you can see it well enough.  Each picture (there are 24) depicts a Holiday Tune.  See if you can figure them out.  I'll have answers for you tomorrow!
Here I am with Part 4 of Bonnie Hunter's Winter Mystery.  It was nice having those pink/turquoise HSTs already done!  I don't have all the pieces of each of the Parts done yet, but everything is cut.  I have three days to work this week before my Holiday time off begins.  There will be sewing tonight!  I'm linking in to Bonnie Hunter's Link Up today and Judy Laquidara's Design Wall Monday...  See what others are up to!

Sunday Stash Report, December 21, 2014

47" x 47"
I have a finish this week.  This is looking like it might be the last for 2014...and it is a good thing it is my December UFO #11 with Aunt Marti of  The pattern is by Linda Ballard called Around the Block.  It was done as Mystery 1 in January 2010 at Road to California Quilter's Showcase.  I changed this project adding the modified 9-patch that is in the rest of the quilt to the corners of the border.  I don't like the look of a piece solid border.  I hadn't noticed until after I added the photo to this post that my corner stones end the cobblestone design that flows through the quilt top.  I'm deciding if I like this or not.  Would you change them to be continuous with the quilt top?  It would be an easy fix.

I'll be spending the rest of the year on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Grand Illusion.  Today I'm cutting Part 4.  I stayed out of the fabric stores this week so a good report!

Used this week:  8.5 yards
Used YTD: 234.25 yards
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD: 170 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2014:  64.25 yards

Moving right along...  At the top are the first three parts of this mystery.  I don't mind the trimming; actually I prefer it.  The HSTs and the hour glass units were designed to be oversized and cut down.  At the bottom (with the purple) are the units for the next part of Krossings.  I have one sewn together; it is a modified nine patch.
I'm excited with how everything is coming together.  I'll have more tomorrow.  Last work day of the week and a dentist appointment has it being a shortened day.  Nothing more than a cleaning...

Have a wonderful Thursday!
