Design Wall Monday, August 22, 2011
Good morning quilters! Wish I had another day to spend in my sewing studio, but alas Monday is upon us. That means the start of the work week for me.
Crazy Jacks by Buggy Barn is one of three projects on my design wall. This is a project that I am making with Kerry for our contribution to the new membership year's fundraising efforts at Sunshine Quilt Guild. I had the "Jacks" (pumpkins) done on Saturday. All that is left is to square them up. Kerry is assembling the candy corn border. There is another dark purple border after the candy corn which I have got a bunch of purples to start cutting into the proper size rectangles. We might be in a position to assemble on Saturday. Its a bimonthly opportunity quilts with September 12th the first chance to purchase that winning ticket!
Next up is Bonnie Hunter's Jamestown Landing. It's a start in the first photo. I'll be working to mix the HSTs up with more neutral variety. You can see from the second photo that there are lots of pieces to work on yet. I will be taking the neutral squares with me to draw lines through the centers during my lunch break getting ready for sewing the 420 sets into 840 HSTs. The first row is the light row and the second row is the dark row. There's to be three of each with lots of sashing rows between of the strip blocks. I have been using my new Bloc Loc 2.5" square up ruler...loving it!This is what I need to be working on...the August UFO which is the design by Linda Causee the Iris block of Kourageous. Time doesn't stand still. The end of the month isn't that far off...
So what have you been working on to show us today? Visit other quilters in their sewing studio at Patchwork Times.
