Design Wall Monday, January 14, 2019


My Design Wall this week remains with Kyanite.  A 2018 UFO that will be finished soon.
I have many of the units done, but still have more of the 2 1/2" triangle in a square to get done.
I'm hopefully on the last batch of them.  These have the aqua/blue sewn to the foundation waiting on trimming and then the white side pieces.  I might cut the entire project back to four blocks by four blocks.  Kerry plans to make the project so she might get a head start above and beyond the blocks that were swapped nearly two years ago.

I have some purchases to make this week in preparation for RD2CA workshop Happy Place with Susan Emory.  I pulled many FQs from my stash, but need to add in some very bright "look like solids".  I plan a visit to Paradise Sewing in Poway, CA, on Thursday.  There is sure to be an add with my next Sunday Stash Report.

Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report, January 13, 2019

Still working on Kyanite.  This one is a 2018 UFO.  The design was out from Quiltville when I first organized a block swap of the aqua string unit section.  I added it to my 2018 UFO List.  Hoping that I could finish the main blocks and learn when the String Frenzy book was released whether I'd have to figure out the borders or not.  Fortunate for me the complete design is in the book.
I've been working on the borders since I got the book in hand.  My version of the project Straits of Mackanic is slightly smaller, but it still takes a lot of unit sewing!  I'm nearly done now, but this week no claims to make in the used category.

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD:  0 yards
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD:  0 yards
Net used in 2019:  0 yards

In case you might be wondering I haven't yet created my 2019 UFO list yet.  I'll be sharing it soon =^.^=

Design Wall Monday, January 7, 2019

Kyanite continues to occupy my design wall today.  I'm making a gazillion 2 1/2" units that finish off the storm at sea design that runs through it.  I just keep making them right now.  When the feeling comes to me that the end is near I'll step back and count.  I certainly don't want to make any more than what's necessary!
I did take time to make the Sunshine BOM for January that I'll need for tomorrow.
In the mail recently came the Princess pattern that is to be made for my Sister-In-Laws grandchild.  It will be a twin size with this design in the center.  I plan to make more of the flower and add hearts in borders to get it to the finished size.  This one will finish by May.
Happy Place is the project I will make at the workshop with Susan Emory at Road to California.  It should be something fun for the sewing room.  I have to bring 12 FQs of various colors and patterns.  I will be rummaging through my stash and add if needed.

So I have a busy sewing room right now =^.^=
