Sunday Stash Report, November 9, 2014



I purchased, but I had purpose with each one...promise.  Above FQs are from Fat Quarters Quilt Shop in Vista, CA.  No it isn't affiliated with the Fat Quarters Shop that is online in case you wondered.  The black and white on the left will be for Bonnie Hunter's 2014 Mystery.  The black print has already been used in the BOM for Sunshine Quilt Guild that is this Tuesday.  Here is my start, purple and brown come from my stash and the neutral came in the kit.

Here is the finish.  A very cute block indeed.  Wonder who the lucky winner will be...

Next from Paradise Sewing in Poway.  I ended up needing one more dark fabric for my Krazy Koons project so the fabric at the top was purchased.  While I was at the cutting table another quilter was purchasing that great red.  Well my stash can always use a red and then there in the basket was a remnant (the black), it was a Buggy Barn fabric that just jumped into my hands.  These both will work well in just about anything I sew up.  Now the two other fabrics are just because I like them...don't you? 

 Here are the two block I finished in the workshop yesterday.  As you can see the top dog used that fabric just purchased.  
Krazy Koons
This is dog block three ready for sewing.  It is in the pizza box which stores the pieces quite well.  When I get down to the sewing the pins will come out making it very convenient to keep track of all the pieces.  I've got some great dogs prepared.  This project should go together quickly.  On the right of the photo above is Koncentric Konnection on hold till I can get my Phaff back.  My portable Janome just can't handle the sewing on this project.  Sure hope the Phaff is ready soon this project is my November UFO...eek...


Now to lessen the sting of the purchases...I have a finish!  Krazy Kookoos is ready for Kerry.  I have three leftover blocks that will become Krazy Kookoos 2!

Your dogs are so adorable. Thanks for the tip of using pins in a pizza box - so simple yet not something I would have thought of!

All your projects are coming along just fine. The dogs are going to be so cute. and the Krazy Kookoos is really a cutie. I like the sewing machine blocks, Always liked the one at the entrance to your sewing room. Great idea with the pizza boxes.
