The beginnings of Kapture!  I started cutting the background neutrals on Sunday.  There are not many pieces to this project.  I managed to get just a few of the same print in both of the neutrals and reds.  These pieces are tiny...  The smallest of the squares is just 1 1/4".  I will be making Four Around Nine by Pam Buda (top right project).  Kapture is my July UFO.

Many of you learned about my two new fur-babies today.  This date marks their five week birthday.  I won't be able to see them until eight weeks.  They live not far from me in the Los Angels area.  It will be the week of my birthday when they move in with us.  So excited!

Hope you enjoy your week =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, July 16, 2017

Here is where I am today with Tiffany's Sun Bonnet Sue.  I measured what's needed for a border.  I want at least a 4" border.  What I have left of the blue just won't be enough.  I looked through my stash for possibilities without luck.  A trip to one of the local quilt shops will need to happen...darn don't you just hate when that happens =^.^=

Kakes in the Kribyard is finished.  Love how this one turned out.  The fabric statistics don't change this week.  I am sewing though.  Enjoy your week ahead.

Design Wall Monday, July 10, 2017

I've been very busy with binding.  Knikknakk above was finished on Sunday.
Kalvery finished on Saturday.
Kissin' Korner 2 finished on Saturday too.  Today I got around Kakes in the Kribyard, but have the sleeve to stitch down.  I will show you a photo of it in all its royal purples later this week.  All of my finished projects can be seen on my website

There were ten Sues to be blanket stitched down when I was left with this project started by Mom a very long time ago.  Tiffany pulled out two of the primarily blue Sues for pillows, but the rest make just enough for this setting.  The blue sashing fabric is left from the blue and yellow bed quilt Mom and I worked on and finished =^.^= before she returned home.  I will be using this same blue for the sashing in between the rows.  There is easily enough for it and probably the binding.  Not sure yet about a border or if it needs one.  What do you think -or- is it too soon to gather an opinion.  I will be back to Sun Bonnet Sue this week.

July is moving far to swiftly...Kapture, my UFO for July has yet to be started!  Until the next time =^.^=
