Design Wall Monday, June 18, 2018

Kandiyohi is all finished except the trimming.  Well...its time to start a finishing touch with the 9-patch border.  The units on the wall aren't sewn together yet.  This is just to get me started.

These are the units ready for sewing.  I took the time to trim them which does make it nice when everything matches up.  I will be working on this border for a bit =^.^=

Saturday Kosmo and Kassy received a package from KitNipBox!  It is full of WalK in the Woods-themed toys.  They've been having fun with the bird and certainly Kosmo loved the treats.

Hope you have a perfect week!  DH has a birthday this week...

Sunday Stash Report, June 17, 2018

Today I'd rather be in Abell, MD celebrating Father's Day with my Dad.  I phoned this morning to wish him a happy day.  There is a house full of family surrounding him which is a great thing.  Plans are set for a cookout done by Chefs Mike and Atta.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and salmon with potato salad along with other great food prepared by Chefs Mom, Karen, Barbara, and Leah.  Happy Father's Day Dad =^.^=

This week I've been working on Kandiyohi.  Earlier in the week I worked on assembling the second half of the rows.  Thursday I dropped in to Paradise Sewing for some neutrals in the yellowish side to continue making the 75 or so 9-patches that will go into the border.  The piece on the right will be the background for the final 2017 UFO.  Yes, Kontingency is way behind getting done.  I'm going to small size it as I like the design of the lap size, but want end up with a smaller size.  There will be more on Kontingency in later posts.

I have quite a few more complete, but here's the start to the 75...  I thought I was done with 1 1/2" teal and brown so I'm digging not too far down into the 1 1/2" scraps.

This week also brought me a surprise from Mom.  She knows I'm all over cat socks and these are just purfect for Independence Day!  Thanks Mom!  (It's one of Karen's cards too.)  This week there is a change to my stash count.  Three yards of neutrals that will quickly be counted out as used.

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD:  63.25 yards
Purchased this week:  3 yards
Purchased YTD:  18.75 yards
Net used in 2018:  44.5yards

2018 February UFO
2017-2018 Sunshine Quilt Guild Mystery Border Challenge
2018 February UFO
2017-2018 Sunshine Quilt Guild Mystery Border Challenge

I'm happy to finally share two projects that were kept secret until last night at Sunshine Quilt Guild's June Meeting.  Kongure took spotlight; voted Favorite Pieced Border.  Thanks Sunshine Members for voting for me.  

Two FQs and a label came my way as a prize.  

Plus, A FQ and a label for each entry.

I did purchase three FQs at $.25 each...what a steal.  I can always use a neutral!

Then came the door prizes that luck was with me once again.  I won one for having worn my name badge and the other was a nice one from three sponsors of our guild; Sew Pro's, Central Sewing Centre, and Cozy Quilt Shop.  I'll be sure to get thank-yous out real soon.

Also coming home with me is a thank-you gift from the Guild for participating in offerings through the membership year.

I certainly came home wealthy with quilty things.  This was a great membership year!
