Kamikaze Fabrics
2015 UFO
 A trip to Rosie's on Friday had me bringing home two pieces for Kamikaze.  The fabrics will be used for the 4-patches that run across the quilt in two directions.  Each red will have a neutral, likewise with the orange.  This project is Bonnie Hunter's Midnight Flight design.  It happens to be on my 2015 UFO list; a number to be called yet.  I figure as big and involved as it is I best get further along.  If you find this project familiar it's because I coordinated a unit swap of the blue/neutral and purple/neutral blade units that are for it.  During the week I pulled scraps and readied the neutral 1 1/2" strips that will be used in the 4-patches.  The last unit to complete the center are HSTs of black/neutral.  As always there are a gazillion units...=^.^-=  I'll share more on this project soon.

These five 1/2 yard pieces came from Sew Batik.  Always need neutrals and what better fabric than a batik?

April 2015 UFO
I do have a couple of completions to account for (which helps offset the purchases).  Kurosity is done and so is Kwill.  I added them to my quilting queue at Kerry's Quilting yesterday.  I have a feathery pattern for Kurosity in a variegated black/purple thread.  The back for it is a small scale gray print.  Batik is going to get a feathery pattern as well.  It will be a custom quilting project using several quilting elements that are similar for the blocks, setting triangles, corners and the two borders.  I ran with the suggestion for a tan thread.  The tan will match the color of the setting triangles.
So for this week, a good one I might add, I have changes to both the stats.  Hope you were able to both too!

Great usage! ( just had to buy 6 yards, but they will go into a quilt directly! said...

LOVE Kurosity! Purple is my favorite color so the color way is just my style! :) Melanie

Awesome job, they are both beautiful. I can see the pretty batiks in the center of the stars in Kwill now. Looking forward to seeing Kamikaze
