Design Wall Monday, April 20, 2015


I was so anxious to see how all these units were going to come together.  I took a break on making the 4-patches to assemble a few black / neutral HSTs.  Oh my, I'm liking what I see!

I have nearly 150 4-patches sewn in both color ways with 218 in both the goal.  I have more in work...

All the Blade Units are finished thanks to a swap I coordinated last year.  Got to love a swap!


What do you think about my Kamikaze project right now?  Hope you have a fun project going on too.  See more from other quilters around the globe at Patchwork Times.


Sunday Stash Report, April 19, 2015

Today continues with me sewing on my Kamikaze project.  This one is by Bonnie Hunter called Midnight Flight.  I'm working on the 4-patches you can see in the top left of the "At A Glance" section in her book.  Love this section by the way!  
You may recall seeing these two fabrics last week when I added them to my stash...  Time to get them in to use.  Along with the neutrals that have all come from my stash.  1 1/2" squares are what's needed.  I had 552 of the 864 neutrals already cut and ready to assemble.  Below are more that are in longer strips.  I'll cut them to what will finish at 1 1/2" increments and sew them after all the 552 have been used.  Below are two piles I'll use one 3" and the other 4 1/2".
Here is the first group ready to be cut.  Half with red strips and the other with orange.  These two colors sound odd together but the overall result works well with purple, blue, and black.
Started assembling the orange first.  By nights end on Saturday I have 147 orange 4-patches and 26 red 4-patches.  I need 218 of each color combination.  Guess what I'll be doing today while the washer and dryer are going?
No changes to my stash stats this week...but you can see I'm working on that!  Enjoy your Sunday and see others using up their stash through the links at Patchwork Times.

 I have a quilt back from Kerry's Quilting!  Always excited to get one.  Wanted to share the quilting because this is one of the reasons it has taken so long to quilt.  We were searching for a zinnia design to match the border fabric.  One finally came along recently and Konfidential went almost immediately on the quilting frame.  The thread is called Rainy Days and looks awesome on both the front and the back.  Below I'm about to trim it up.  I have the binding prepared, sleeve and label ready.  Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow while watching Dancing With The Stars?  Konfidential was a Lakeside Mystery Workshop at Road to California Quilt Show I did with Karen Sievert and her design Expect The Unexpected.
 Most of my sewing over the weekend was on the Clue Challenge for Sunshine Quilters that is due in June.  Won't be sharing anything until after the reveal, but these two publications include part of my design...  
Do you have sewing plans this week?  If you do I hope you find time to make them happen.  See other fine projects through the links at Patchwork Times.  Enjoy your week!
