Kooky Kins
 50" x 56"
2012 UFO
I've got Kooky Kins complete.  I just adore these Buggy Barn designs.  Those two sisters know what they are doing!  This is the second time making their Crazy Jack's design.  The first one was made in a workshop at Amidon's.  It was finished by Kerry and I and raffled off as a Sunshine Quilt Guild Opportunity Quilt a couple of years ago.  Needless to say that I had to have one of my own so that's just what I did.  I think the candy corn border just makes these silly pumpkins just jump right out at you.  You will also be delightfully surprised to see the variegated yellow/orange candy corn quilting pattern.  Thanks to Kerry's son-in-law for coming up with the clever name.

Kommon Kongregation Backgrounds and Setting Triangle Fabrics (new center and right)

I'm deep at work on Kommon Kongregation at present.  Aunt Marti of 52Quilts might have a purple for me to use as one of the stars.  I spotted the fabric from a photo of a block in a quilt she made recently.  (Check out her quilt if you have time; it's theme is Colorado.)  I've been looking for an eggplant purple reproduction fabric with little luck in the shops around my area.  My Mom of Sew What Else! has some grays that I might be able to use for the remaining backgrounds on their way to me.  I did pick up three at Cozy Quilt Shop on Thursday along with a solid more taupe than gray for the setting triangles.  This is my purchase for the week. I still might need Bonnie's help on more gray backgrounds with a stop by her LQS, Temecula Quilt Company.  It's great to have the help!  Kommon Kongregation is a Marti Michell design called Seven Sister's Simplified.

Back to the sew room!  See how others are making good use of their stash through Patchwork Times.
