Kavort is done.  What a nice Frolic! this project has turned out to be.
Beware! It's Halloween BOM arrived on Friday.  I do need to get started on this project...
With a little color guidance from Mom to be (just two days from today), these colors are to be another project for Greyson.  This is the one promised at the virtual baby shower in March.
This is where I ended up from just a bit over two days of sewing.

Kuddles and Kisses didn't make it to Virginia on Saturday as expected.  Hopefully it is just a day late and will arrive on Monday.  Nothing changes my stats this week.  It does look like there might be a change next week with the completion of this fast moving project Kardiac.  I'll also look forward to sharing news of Greyson's arrival that is to be on June 2nd.

Happy Memorial Day!

I have nothing to share on my Design Wall today.  There is soon to be a new project started, but first there are two projects that need to be bound.  Kuddles and Kisses will be in the mail just as soon as I can get around all four corners and attach a label.  This one is for Greyson who arrives if he waits...on June 2nd.

Kavort will be next at a more leisurely pace.

Does this photo bring a suggestion to you?  It bothered me to see not one, but two containers overflowing with scraps...all those important leftovers for a scrappy quilter like me.  Well it was decided to empty the containers and bring my scraps under control =^.^=  This is after the first container was emptied.  Granted it wasn't nearly as full as the second container, but enough so that no more was going into it from another project start (or continuation from a UFO).  Oh the feeling is grand to see it emptied and its contents managed.
This is the result of tackling the second container after one full evening of taming...
Kassy is showing you just how empty the container is now!  Cats and boxes!  It is true about them and if there is one around one can find a cat inside.  All the scraps are ready for action with the next exciting project that needs them.
Korona
I do have a completion to change the stats of my stash this week.  I also have a name for my Unity Shelter-in-Place Quilt Along.  Korona sounds like an apt name, what say you?  I decided to stop after Part 5.  At this point it makes a nice lap size at 58" x 67".  A white on white back is planned with a darker blue as the binding.  There are some leftover units to use in the sleeve...but I'm getting ahead of the quilting!  Kerry will get this project next week too.  First though there is some ironing to do :)
Kavort
Kuddles and Kisses
Friday the postperson brought me Kavort and another newly named project, Kuddles and Kisses (aka Elvira).  Look close at Kuddles and Kisses quilting...choo, choo, and ABC, chug-a-chug, chug!  This project is for Greyson my grandnephew that is due nine days from now!  Don't look too close Tiffany...  The black/white check strips on the right are the binding ready to prepare.  Having Kuddles and Kisses done today and in the mail next week is my goal.  Greyson needs one of his Great Aunt's quilts!
Much of the evening on Saturday was spent putting more leftover partial blocks together to make the sleeve for Kavort.  There were lots of leftover units from Kavort that I wanted to use on it somehow.  Many were used up with a strip down the back, but five remained that became the sleeve along with some leftover back.  The green strips in the back will become the binding.

So a good week with a lot of binding and a trip to the post office ahead for me in the coming days.  I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy a picnic tomorrow in celebration of our heros both here and in heaven.

The last of the 2019-2020 Sunshine Quilt Guild Challenge projects is done.  This is a charity quilt that will go to one of the kids that stops at Becky's House.  All the fabrics came in a kit from the charity stash that Sunshine has available for members to make a charity quilt.
This one has the cutest of backs.  Don't you love the pigs on motorcycles?  Notice the tattoos on some of them LOL!
So here's my checklist for the Challenge.  Yep gave myself a star!

I think this will be my conclusion of Unity Quilt Along.  This is the end of Part 6.  It is getting to be a nice throw size.  After I check out Part 8 that is released today a final decision will be made to go on with it.  I will be skipping Parts 6 and 7.  It has been a fun project!

Next up is the last of the UFOs for Sunshine Quilt Guild.  We haven't had a meeting since March.  Sure hope that we can get together in June.  My UFOs have all been charity quilts for Becky's House.  More on this last UFO in my next post.  Hope you have a nice week ahead.

I was diligent with the Quiltville Quilt Along Unity project through the week.  This is the conclusion of Part 4.

This is Part 4 in progress.  Part 3 still needs the inner neutral borders and then 32 blocks of what you see in progress.  With plenty of medium blues in my posession now that Mom came to my rescue.  I have all units cut and being sewn.
Part 5 makes this project from a square to a rectangle, my prefered shape in larger projects.  It takes 2" neutral squares sewn together for a border and FG of blue/medium blue/red with neutral "skies".
Part 7 is a larger block and yes I will be stopping after Part 5.  The last thing I need is a large project with no plans for an owner.  I wouldn't mind doing the larger projects as charity ones, but I do use my checkbook for quilting and it becomes a bit expensive.  Those who are long arm quilters are lucky to have this at their disposal.

I'm continuing on with Unity QA.  I have really been enjoying this free project with Bonnie.  Take care friends.  Say a little prayer for my niece, her husband and their soon to be born son Greyson.  His birth date has been set for June 2nd.  With his heart defects looming all of his birthing doctors will be ready for whisking him off to surgery.

I have Kwenched finished.  Just love it, don't you?  This design combines both what I know and what I want to get better at...

To say the very least on Friday I was thrilled by what Mom sent my way.  I was right at work cutting more units for Part 4.  I was at a complete stand still with the medium blue not being available.  Only half of the Part 4 units were cut.  Mom to the rescue even without the scraps in hand she was able to match the color perfectly!  Thank you Mom!

The fabrics from Kerry will work perfectly too.  I decided to wait on having her send these until the next part, Part 7, is known.  Not sure I am going to continue making my project larger.  Part 6 has units cut and sewn into red/neutral HSTs...not knowing what is to be done with them.  I have definitely decided to get through Part 5.

Nothing changes my stats this week.

Today's part that was released for Unity QA on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville blog.  I'm way behind.  This is Part 6 and I'm still at Part 4.  I have been sewing and cutting, but not any where near finished.  Plow on I am...

Hope this shelter in place is allowing you time to do your favorite thing.  Be safe my friends.

Today Blogger has us all with a new format for creating, editing, posting, etc.  It has the same functions as before it appears.  Does look different in its presentation to the user.  I have Unity QA Part 3 complete.  Yes I am a bit behind...
It took me the weekend to finish all the stars that make up Part 3.  I have to sew them together and add the outer sashing that Bonnie Hunter has us adding at the conclusion of each part after the pieced sections.  I started cutting out Part 4.  My  stash is getting weak of medium blues...Mom has some on their way from her stash.  Part 6 goes live tomorrow.  It will be nice to catch up if that is possible.  I think their are eight parts for this quilt along.
Beware! It's Halloween! BOM for May arrived.  Don't tell the folks at Midway Wool Company that I have yet to get started.
Kwenched arrived from Kerry.  Oh my Kerry did such an awesome job with the quilting.  It took quite a bit of back and forth to come up with all the designs she used, but every bit worth it.  I have it all ready to bind.  Nothing changes in the stash count this week.
