Design Wall Monday, July 26, 2010

Well here it is again the start of the work week. This is the long week of our 9/80 work schedule so it means working the Friday.


I finished what I had planned to accomplish yesterday. I put sleeve and binding on two quilts just quilted this week; next comes the hand sewing as I much prefer the look over sewing them down by machine. Krossroads a Bonnie Blue Quilts pattern called Prommised Land by Paula Barnes and Kastanets' Kin a Brenda Henning pattern called Linda's Twist will soon be posted to my website www.kwiltnkats.com. Krossroads did require a purchase of the black fabric, but it was needed to pull all the scraps together.


The borders were sewn onto Krumbs 1 a Bonnie Hunter pattern called Fun with Bricks and the back was pieced together for this fairly good sized project. I cut the back for Keeping Kool a 2009 Row Robin Exchange at Sunshine Quilters Guild that I'm a member. Now all I need to do for these last two quilts is cut the batting and take them to my quilter. I've been thinking about a binding that won't show on the front for Keeping Kool. I've seen this done before and I think it would look nice, but need to find out how it's done. For my design wall posting here's Krumbs 1 and Keeping Kool.





All four quilts used up my stash yipee! I have a new project on my table now that will use the scrumptous Hoffman Bali Pop, Cotton Candy.

In some ways, I envy you for using up your stash! I think I'll have to live until I'm 150 to use mine, although I have made a strong effort to make do with what I have and only buy some new when absolutely necessary. Of course, DH is an enabler, buying me kits, book, and fabric, and suggesting trips to big quilt shows (we're headed to Houston in the fall).
I have been donating lots of projects through my quilt guild, who distribute them to lots of groups in our area.
Keep up the good work

You used up your stash?????? I didn't think that was physically possible. I thought that the universe would implode and life as we knew it would end if that ever happened anywhere........well, I am waiting for it.........

My stash is far from empty. Maybe I chose the wrong words to say that all four quilts used my stash except one that needed a single black fabric that was purchased.

UFO's are a pain and a delight to have around. I have been trying to do as many as possible this year and it will trickle down as I complete each one! I love the scrappy quilt you have pictured.
Good Job!

I love Keeping Kool, looks very like our 'New Zealand' summers. Is winter here at the moment though, so is cold about 15C. I wish it was beach weather!

I love Keeping Kool. Row quilts are one of my favourite styles of quilts. Your crumbs look great, too!
