Design Wall Monday, February 27, 2017


I have begun putting the pieces together for Kakes in the Kribyard.  There will be some rearranging as more blocks are stitched together.  At the moment 88 blocks are planned.  Next an inner border of the light purple (constant).  Finishing with a braided border with the "knot" in the light purple and the "braid" dark rectangles.

The blocks finish at 3" which all come from bonus triangles.  I plan to use all the fabrics Sue gifted me and then if needed move to my stash.  The width of the pieces is 1 1/2".  There are plenty of that size in my strip stash.

These are the three quilts I brought home with me from Kerry.  From the bottom is Kolada, Konstant Konnection, and finally on top is Krosscheck.  I will be working at finishing Kakes in the Kribyard then move on to binding.

March is upon us this week can you believe it?  Take time with a stroll through the links at Patchwork Times.  Hope you have a good week.

Sunday Stash Report, February 26, 2017


Kourtepointe finished!  YIPPEE for me...I get to change my Stash Statistics!  I'm making headway on my 2017 UFOs even if it isn't the project I should be working on =^.^=.  I'm in the black!!!

I was sewing with Kerry yesterday.  Well to be honest I was unstitching and trimming my February UFO that I have named Kakes in the Kribyard (must get the "Ks" in some which way).  This project is a Bonnie Hunter design called Bricks in the Barnyard.  Did you know that "cakes" is another name for bricks...and..."crib" is a style of barn?  I'll be working on this project today.

Kastaway will need to wait a bit longer.  I have picked up the monofilament thread so the platform is ready for liftoff!

Join me tomorrow to see how far I get with Kakes in the Kribyard; along with goodies I brought home quilted from Kerry's (Kolada, Konstant Konnection, and Krosscheck).  I have adds to my stack of quilts to bind.  Heaven...I'm in Heaven...

Did you guess that all 16 would be sewn?  Next up is the sashing and border.

I am getting close to a finish with Kourtepointe =^.^=

Here is a peek at what I got back this weekend from Kerry's Quilting.

Do you remember Koncentric Konnection?  I have a narrow black binding planned for this masterpiece!

There are more surprises with quilters near and far through the links at Patchwork Times this fine day.  Happy Presidents Day.
