And then there were seven.  Just nine more to assemble.  Kilkenny Kat is looking good.  I have all the things done that are needed for the shipment to Road to California.  I have all the labels sewn in place that have been printed.  Kraft which was done in June finally has its origins attached =^.^=
Part 3 of Koldplay (aka #Good Fortune) is finished in part :)!  Don't you like the alligators that I have deemed a good neutral.  I've had that piece of fabric for years.  It has finally found a home!

It would be so nice to have off today to finish the exciting projects I am working on.  Oh well, the Holiday Break is just around the corner and this week is a short one.  Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report, December 9, 2018

Six blocks done so far.  I have decided on Kilkenny Kat for my project.  It means tenacious fighter which seems appropriate for a patriotic project.  Not sure of the layout, but I learned from my friend Mary who has the String Frenzy book in hand that there is the design for Dawn's Early Light inside.  I don't have the book right yet...Santa Kerry let the gift out of the bag =^.^=
These are more pieces of the units needed to complete the project.  I rummaged through my scrap stash to find more red and blue for making more 1 1/2" red patches and blue portion of the HSTs.

Today I will be spending time sewing on labels.  Not sure you are a miserly as me, but I do my best to have four labels to print before I run the expensive silk label paper through my printer.  Kraft, Kapricorn, Kanton Kull and a self created blue ribbon with winning details for Kurry are to be sewn down.  There is also a blank cover label for Kurry to be sewn down before it makes its way to Road to California.

I pulled green scraps for Koldplay my Bonnie Hunter #Good Fortune.  Green and neutral are in Part 3.  More on my Part 3 tomorrow.

Nothing changes my stash statistics this week.  Not too many more in December...this might be all that will be used this year...  Enjoy your Sunday!

Design Wall Monday, December 3, 2018


Dawn's Early Light by Bonnie Hunter at the start.  This one is a 2018 UFO.  One block was sewn and much of the pieces cut; some in units as well.  Anxious to put this one together.

The neutral strip pieced blocks come from a swap I coordinated not too awful long ago.  My friend Bonnie help remove some of the paper during lunch.  We also counted to learn how many more would be necessary for the 15 blocks that are planned for my project.  I wonder if this will be one that Bonnie has a pieced border for in her new String Frenzy book.  Anyone have the book yet and know the answer?

This one is Part 1 of #Good Fortune.  As you notice at the top of the photo I have fabrics for making many more of these 2" finished four patch units.

The blue came in with Part 2 of #Good Fortune.  Lots of HSTs.  And yes there is more to make and fabrics ready for cutting.

These are the tools of #Good Fortune that have been used so far.  The two on the left perform the same task for cutting the HSTs.  I am preferring the one on the bottom as it is easier for me to use.  It is the shape that I like.  Do you have both of them and which do you prefer?
I received GOOD new about my Road to California Entry.  Kurry was accepted into the 2019 Quilter's Showcase.  I am abundantly excited!  I will be getting it prepared for shipment as it must be with them by December 21st.  I will share more with you about Kurry in the coming days.  Wish me as much success as with the San Diego Quilt Show appearance where it took a Blue Ribbon.

Enjoy your week =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, December 2, 2018

Kyanite awaits borders.  I finished all the blocks planned to make.  The project Straits of Mackinac by Bonnie Hunter is much larger.  Mine will finish somewhere I suspect around 72" square.  Once I have my hands on her new String Frenzy book the border will be made and attached.  Until then it will wait in its project box.  Thanks Faye for the name suggestion.


My focus for the next few weeks will be on Good Fortune with Dawn's Early Light filling in the sewing gaps.  Both of these projects will be made about half the size that Bonnie Hunter enjoys making and bringing to us.
