DWM & Stash

It’s Design Wall Monday!  I’ll show you mine, why don’t you show yours on Judy’s Design Wall Monday post?

I have some 9 patches made using 15 minutes ala Bumble Beans project and the backing for the Pop Beads quilt.  The backing is big enough the way it is but I’m toying with the idea of sandwiching the leftover half hexies you see above between the green fabric and a piece of pink (cut from the bottom)….probably will do that because it looks kind of boring as it is.

I worked on trimming up some more of the Pinwheel Party half square triangles…..I finished with the orange ones, yea!!!  Now I’m onto the blue ones.  If it didn’t aggravate the pain in my left hand so much, I’d have the done already…..grrrrrrr.

I like the scrappy 9 patches I made with the 15 minute squares.  These might just make it into the quilt I’m collaborating on with my mother.

These little hexagon kits were handed out free at the AQS show in Paducah in 2009….took me awhile to try it out but I like it 🙂  The fabric and 7 paper pieces were included.  I like some of the hexagons I’ve seen where they fussy cut the fabrics to get a repeating design so I’m going to try that just as soon as I receive the package of hexie’s I ordered from Paper Pieces…..like I need something else to do?!?!?!?!

And here’s my updated stash report, but first another picture of more stash used up…..Pop Beads binding.
