Design Wall Monday, September 17

Sunday was the day to finish the binding and add the label to Kastaway.  Sue will be helping me today add a few rhinestones here and there.  Yep certainly cutting it close to turn in time for the San Diego Quilt Show event.  Turn in is today at Rosie's between 1 and 4 pm.  It is with great fortune that once the rhinestones are applied there will be no setting time required.  I will share a photo once the rhinestones are in place. 

The other two quilts and one of Kerry's are in the car waiting for the trip today.  If you find you can go to the show it is a good one that runs Thursday 9/20 through Saturday 9/22.  I plan to be there on Friday to help with selling chances on the Sunshine Quilt Guild's Opportunity Quilt, white glove a bit (helps display the quilts to admirers), along with looking at all the quilts being displayed.  Of course let me not forget shopping!

Have a wonderful week.

Sunday Stash Report, September 16, 2018

This week I have been working on Punkin'Patch.  I find myself happy working on the string project.  I am still thinking about a name for this one so if you have any ideas please share.

I have several more pumpkins ready for their stem and background along with lots more of all pieces to cut.  Thanks to my sister I have not needed to dig in my yardage stash quite yet.  The gray/green 1" checkerboard border looms.

The first four blocks of Punkin' Patch project are finished.  I have quite a bunch of orange strips to make more of the pumpkin unit along with 18 more gray sections cut to size.  Tonight I'll be sewing strings!
This project was fun!  They are raw edge flowers...hopefully the look like sunflowers 😊  There was a workshop this past Thursday with my Mom's guild.  This was the project everyone was working on.  It was fun working together, Mom and I, on the project.  We finished six of them during the time.  They should ravel to the 1/4" stitch line once washed.  The plan is to use nine of them for a small wall hanging and the other three for a table runner.

Today is my first day back to work!  It should be a very busy day.

Sunday Stash Report, September 9, 2018

These fabrics are mostly a gift from my Sister.  The grays and oranges will be used in the Bonnie Hunter project called Punkin' Patch.  Punkin' Patch is one of my 2018 UFOs.

The neutral was a great freebie that Mom picked up for me at her Quilters by the Bay monthly meeting.  It worked out that I was in Maryland for the September meeting.  I've been there once before so it was real nice to see many familiar faces.
These charm packs were gifted from Mom.  No idea what to use them on right now, but something will come along.  I only purchased one yard of fabric so that will be all that is added this week.
