Design Wall Monday, May 3, 2021


These are the majority of the HST units in the gray/color way.  You can see that I'm a bit low on the reds and absolutely no variety on the orange.  Definitely need to add and fix this with the remaining units needed.

These are the majority of the HST units in the cream/color way.  I did better on the red, but will need more.  Bonnie only suggested a hint of brown so this should be enough.  Probably have too many in the gray/color way.
I have some of the cream/color units ready to sew.  Will still need more though.  Gray/red are ready to cut.  Then I will need to ponder what else is needing.
The project has 16 leaf blocks, two in each color way (gray/color and cream/color).  These are the other units used in the blocks.  The big one is cut in half on the diagonal and a stem inserted between the two.  I'm anxious to get beyond HSTs!

Enjoy your first week of May.  Keep Mom in mind this week...

Sunday Stash Report, May 2, 2021


There is one purchase arrived this week.  These are two of the fabrics needed for the Laundry Basket Quilts Mystery 2021 project that starts soon.  It is a race to see if the fabrics can arrive in time.  I'll be sewing the blue and white fabric option.  

I have been in love with the blue/white FQ Bundle since I first saw it and well...

This week I finished my third Bunny quilt, the smallest of them all.  This one stays with me.  Koney 2 is 27" x 29".  I already have it on my wall until the Patriotic quilts come out in June.
I am still cutting the HSTs that will be for Appalachian Autumn by Bonnie Hunter.  The recipe calls for 156 of each the gray/color and cream/color HSTs.  Right now I am up to 105 gray/color and 121 cream/color.  The "color" is all autumn shades (gold, orange, rust, red, and a bit of brown) that have so far been taken from strips in my scrap stash.  Why is it that only a handful of the color you want is in your scraps?
John Deere Tractor 2 should arrive tomorrow.  Anxious to see the happiness it brings little Bobby when he finally has it in his hands.
