Sunday Stash Report, August 18, 2019

This does look like a Design Wall Monday post, but it isn't!  I finished the last block today with merely threads left of the background fabric.  No I didn't have to sort through the trash 😊😊😊

Believe it up until now when I am about to figure out the borders Kalypso has been made from my stash.  I have plenty of the light blue used as my "spark"  I actually put more in it than planned.  Looks like I may need to move one of them to the bottom row so that they are scattered around a bit more.

The Bloc Loc rulers are put away for now unless I can find a suitable neutral that will play nice with background.  This is going to be tough.  A visit to Rosie's is in my future.

I may just finish off Kalypso with a light blue binding.  What do you think about this idea?  I sure would like to give the circle pattern a finishing touch on the outside edge.  Tomorrow I will be sewing the blocks together and next Stash Report I will claim Kalypso as a finish.

For now no change to my numbers.  I hope you are using your stash!

Design Wall Monday, August 12, 2019

Well what do you think about Kalypso so far?
Here is a close up of the Polaris Block.  I'll be using a lot of variety, but the corners of this block make a secondary design that creates a circle around the Mariner's Compass Block.  Can you see it?
Here is a close up of the Mariner's Compass Block.

The design called Magic Mariner's Compass by Janna Thomas comes in two block sizes; 9" and 12".  It takes the KISS and TIS rulers of Bloc Loc.  The 9" quilt finishes at 59.5 square and the 12" quilt finishes at 74.5".  I am making the 9" blocks.  If you wish to pick up the pattern go to Janna at www.blocloc.com where she will be happy to get you the pattern (#2417) and rulers for the size appropriate for the block size you want to make.

It was great to see Kerry on Sunday.  I brought to her my purple stash to select for a project she plans to work on soon.  I thought I had more carmel stash but turns out not.  She was able to use several pieces.  I certainly will miss robbing each others stash...  Kerry has for quilting two of my recent projects Kreate and Kardinal.  I will look forward to quilts coming in the mail =^.^=

Have a wonderful week!



Sunday Stash Report, August 11, 2019

The fabrics of Kalypso.  This all comes from my stash that is being used up to the tiniest unit!  The inspiration of the fabrics comes from that arigle print in the middle of the stack.  The background is the first up after the light blue.
This one is a Bloc Loc project which makes me happy.  It uses a bunch of rulers as you can see.
These are the units left for me to work with currently.  I have nine more blocks and an outside border to add.  There are many more hours of cutting and sewing ahead.

I may have to add in this goldish fabric because my variety is starting to wane.  Going to dig around my stash a bit more for possible dark blues...

For this week nothing changes.  I'm off now to visit with Kerry who is in town for a couple of days before she heads back to Arizona.  Gosh I miss my buddy being close.
