Design Wall Monday, April 15, 2013


Kalahari is on my wall still.  I didn't sew much on this project over the weekend.  I did take sew one of the triangles and a corner just to see what it will look like.  They go together fast which is nice.  The monthly meeting of Canyon is tonight so no sewing until tomorrow.  Kalahari will have my complete attention in the sewing room until the top is done.  After all it is my April UFO and it's got to be done by the end of the month.


Saturday and Sunday sewing was on Kilowatts.  I have all the blocks, setting triangles, and corners done.  It's now time for removing the paper.  I'll be doing that during my lunch break today.  Maybe my friends will lend me a hand.  Once Kalahari comes down from the design wall Kilowatts goes up.  A second finish is looming this week.


Saturday I got from Kerry my Knoted quilt.  I have the sleeve and binding prepared and ready to sew down.  Knoted is one of Judy's designs Note to Self that she gave us awhile back.  Have you made this one?


I check out Quiltmakers Blog nearly everyday.  I happened to be lucky last month and won the three publications above.  There are some nice projects within their pages.  Notice its Volume 1 of the 100 Blocks  magazine?  This is one sought after Volume.  EXCITED!!!


This last project is Kloudburst.  It's UFO number is 9 for Thirteen in 2013 with 52Quilts.com.  Number 9 hasn't been called yet, but I'll be ready.

Hope you have time to glance at some of the other quilters who have participated this Monday on Patchwork Times.  Have a great week ahead.

Kalahari is gorgeous! And you are amazing. I wish there was a closed-circuit camera in your sewing room and I could just watch how you work--so focused and on task, it always seems. : )
Time to remove papers? Wow! That one will be a flimsy before we know it.
Kloudburst looks like another rich, wonderful quilt in the works.
Looks like you had a nice win--yes, volume 1 is a prize!

Kalahari gives me an idea for my Snail's Trail Lotto Blocks that I won. Thanks for the inspiration.
