Design Wall Monday, May 13, 2024

My biggest project to work on over the weekend is Kolonization.  I stopped at this point because I wanted to do a good job matching the bottom stripes to the top unit for the best look.  Not much more to do except for sashing after the "flags" go together.

Next up is this Valentines project without a name quite yet.  All of the units are done with only an iron and Design Wall needed along with a couple of hours assembly to complete.

Lastly this Christmas table runner project without a name yet too.  This one needs an iron along with assembly time and it too will be a finish.

The last two project are not a UFO.  Just fun sewing before they wind up on one of those lists =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, May 12, 2024

This was the first project to finish at the Sunshine Quilting Retreat.  Started out with a couple of simple sewing projects.  This one is called Hearts for Linus from a Quiltmaker magazine many years ago.  Mom made the hearts.  Next I pulled from my stash coordinating fabrics and assembled.  Notice the cat in one of the daisy blocks second row up from the bottom.  I have had it waiting for the special project and this one happened to be just that after nearly three years of Sunshine Quilting Retreats later.
Next up was Oh Henry that is a charity project through Sunshine Quilt Guild.  I was able to get a back for it and it is ready for quilting.
Visiting two quilt shops in Temecula, I didn't come home with too much.  Zoom in and check out the cat and the fiddle =^.^=  The green and two stripes are for a future Christmas project.  I couldn't decide upon the two stripes, but fairly certain the top one will be used.  The other items are just because.

These are all the favors from my Quilting Sisters.  There are many unique, handmade, and sweet thought out items.  FQ at the bottom is what I gifted.
These 10" squares were one of the activities one could participate in using Patriotic fabrics.

Going along with our theme for this year my door prize.
Last but certainly not least.  One of the Left, Right, Center winners shared her winnings!

We had a great time as we always do.  The food was way too much, but delicious.  The weather was comfortable.  Finally, the traffic up to and back from wasn't bad.  All my project, tools, and leftover snacks have been incorporated back into the house.  Time to put my feet up and relax.

Check out my Design Wall tomorrow for all the project I was able to get started.

Design Wall Monday, May 6, 2024

Sharing with you today Kwak.  This is such a happy quilt.  Thanks to Pam for talking me through my initial idea to use orange around the ducks and binding.  I also started off thinking a fun 30s fabric for the sashing and border, but when the perfect fabric wasn't on the shelf at Rosie's...  The comical lively sashing and border fabric could have gone with orange, but purple won out.  I am very pleased with the finish.

Nothing else graces my Design Wall today as I am packed up and ready for the Sunshine Retreat this weekend.  Starting on Thursday meeting up with my quilting sisters at Between Stitches then lunch at Penfolds.  The evening will have us at Vina.  There should be lots to share after nearly four days of sewing.

Oh...we had Mexican food last night LOL =^.^=
