Design Wall Monday, July 6, 2015

Congratulations to the USA Womens Soccer Team!

Koronado is on my Design Wall today.  It is the first of two quilts that make up my July UFO.  The second quilt uses the scraps.  I plan to cut the pieces and get started on Kidd next.  These quilts are the QOV Pattern 4652.  You can learn more HERE.
I picked up Kadabra from Kerry's Quilting today.  Next up is trimming, preparing binding, a sleeve, and a label.  I'll have some hand stitching to do.  I wonder if DH has any good Netflix in the queue?
Enjoy more beautiful projects through the links at Patchwork Times.  Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report, July 5, 2015

About a month ago I spotted this pattern at Country Loft in LaMesa, CA.  A Prairie Gathering by Pam Buda.  Kerry and I decided to jump into this kit a month project.  I looked for a total yardage calculation, but couldn't find one.  So I will be calculating the yardage over the week to record in the next Stash Report.  We were fortunate that the first seven months were still available.  Being that it is a medallion quilt the kits each month make rounds.  I have made a project by Pam once before and plan to take a workshop with her in January through Sunshine Quilters.  It would be nice to have my project done before then.

Kamikaze is finished!  I will be taking this to be quilted a bit later today.  This brings me up two future 2015 UFOs that haven't yet been called FINISHED!  So nice to be ahead for months that surprise us with unexpected events.  What's even better is that the two have lots of piecing!

To my July UFO now.  I like that it is patriotic for July!  I am just getting started with the cutting.  I purchased a kit for it which makes two quilts.  The first one will be called Koronado and the second Kidd.  So Koronado must be first!  I will be using the QOV Pattern called Flag of Valor by Minick and Simpson.  More to come in the coming weeks on both of these.  Hope your 4th of July was full of excitement...

Design Wall Monday, June 29, 2015

Kamikaze continues to bogart my design wall.  Nothing has changed with it since I shared it last.  DH showed an interest in the colors of this beauty...wondered why it hadn't been worked on in a while.  Well, it sure isn't because I don't want to :(.  I've just had lots on my palate of late.  Fortunately that trend changes this week!  I need some sewing downtime for sure.

QOV Quilt 1

QOV Quilt 2
I learned what my UFO challenge will be for July.  #11 which is a Quilt of Valor design that is all kitted up from Country Threads.  Quilt 1 is to be made first with the leftover pieces making Quilt 2.  I'm looking forward to working with the red, white, and blue fabrics so appropriate for the month of July.

Kamikaze to finish first, then the two QOV quilts Koronado and Kidd.  You may be wondering about these QOV quilts names; both are currently in commission USS Navy ships with San Diego, CA being their home port.  Seemed appropriate in a few ways =^.^= although I did take some liberty with the USS Coronado.  I will also be sliding in another project, the San Diego Humane Society Fur Ball quilt donation.  This will be year 15 of helping out the animals at their annual black tie fundraising event.

Hope your week is all that you want it to be.  Happy stitching!
