Design Wall Monday, January 30, 2023

There are two projects on my Design Wall.  Broken Daisy is above.  I have the melons and the swoosh to sew in next.  This is from a workshop I attended earlier this month.  Getting the baby shower quilt done and in the mail was a priority before I returned to this project.

This is the newest color layout for Chilhowie.  It is hard to see right now, but the four patches need to be changed to a green instead of the purple.  The last change will be the green HSTs to purple.  Making the focus more on the green.  I am still working on the colors.  This project needs to read green.

Since it has to be a California King size quilt; I have been looking how others decided to make it bigger.  I do like this idea.  This is not the quilt I am working on mind you.

I have also been getting the binding done on the two Scattered Leaves projects.  This is the first one with a gold binding and the second one is waiting for me to finish.  I have it half done.  

Never a dull time in my quilting!  Hope your week is a good one.  San Diegans are getting lots of rain these next couple of days...figures I just had my vehicle washed on Saturday =^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, January 29, 2023


I finished the baby shower quilt today.  It was what kept my hands busy while watching the two football games.  Right after dinner it was packaged for the trip to Maryland.  My timing was just great getting it done and ready for mailing first thing Monday morning.  Thanks to Kerry for rushing this project through and doing fabulous quilting.  I know this quilt will be loved...label will be prepared and sent to match up with the quilt once the baby's first name is known.

So this week I have another finish.  I will definitely share the quilt once the surprise is known by all who need to be surprised!

Used this week: 8.25 yards 
Used YTD: 27.25 yards 
Purchased this week: 0 yards 
Purchased YTD: 4.75 yards
Net used in 2023: 22.5 yards

Chilhowie is on my Design Wall.  I changed the fabrics from Bonnie Hunter's recommendations hoping for a more prominent emerald green project, but my choices fell short.  It isn't sewn completely together which is fortunate for a second try without too much reverse stitching.

I will be swapping the purple fabrics with the green...well that is my current plan.  More on this project in days ahead.

I thought I measured the binding for this charity quilt right, but as you can see i ended up just a half inch short!  Honestly, I think this is kind of cute.  The photos are of the top and the back of the binding.  (The borders and the back are the same cowboy theme.)  I have lots of binding going on =^.^=

I have to figure out what I want to sew next!  Maybe tackle one of the 2022 UFOs that didn't finish.  Have a great rest of your week.
