DWM Crumbs

It’s Design Wall Monday time 🙂  Hop on over to Judy’s DWM post to see what projects other quilters are busy creating.  I’ve decided I want my crumb quilt to be larger so my design wall has a couple of options I’m considering…..

I’m leaning towards the second one.  I thought I’d like the second orange border in the first picture but I’m liking the second picture much more now.  I have a lot of time to throw up other options while I work on the free pieced sawtooth border 😉

I volunteered to quilt a couple of the BASICs quilts for Victoria at Bumble Beans.  Here’s the first one loaded and ready to quilt………if only I could make up my mind on how to quilt it…….

Guess I’ll click through some blogs and see if I can’t find something to inspire me 🙂

Have a great Monday!

Design Wall Time :)

I was gone a week and I have a bunch of pictures to post but first, here’s my Design Wall.

Click over to Judy’s Design Wall Monday post to see what other quilters have on their walls 🙂

Next up I finished my Recycled Cabins quilt!  It’s made completely from re-purposed shirts and I’m so pleased with it.

As you see on my design wall I finished my First Saturday BOM blocks

I completed the 3rd SAHR block.

While I was gone, I did a little shopping 😉

Check out the Cheddar…..I’m loving it!

What this means of course, is my stash report must be update 🙁

Stash Report:

  • Added:  8.5    Cumulative Added:  119.5 yds
  • Used:  0            Cumulative Used:  38.75 yds
  • Net Out/(In):   (80.75 yds)  I had a math error a while back and no one even noticed!!  Instead of ~50 yds in it’s ~80yds …must have been wishful thinking

Post 299 & DWM :)

This post #299 for quiltedjonquil and it’s a Design Wall Monday post 🙂  Click over to Judy’s Design Wall Monday post to enjoy what other quilters are working on.   My wall doesn’t have anything new this week and I’ll be gone next week 🙁

I did sew the blue plaid binding on the Recycled Cabins quilt….only have to hand sew the binding down and I’ll have a finish soon.

And here’s my stash report….I picked up two tail ends at The Quilted Fox Saturday and got the thrifted shirts & skirt cut up.

Stash Report:

  • Added:  2.5    Cumulative Added:  111 yds
  • Used:  0            Cumulative Used:  38.75 yds
  • Net Out/(In):   (42.75 yds)

Thrifting :)

I stopped at a thrift store today because they are having a Labor Day sale and I had some time.  Glad I did because look what I snagged 🙂

The great gold is an XXL shirt, the red stripe is a great shirting (see below) and the pink/green print is a cotton skirt so I’ll get some nice large pieces.  The stripe shirt on the right isn’t for my fabric stash…it’s a Liz non-iron shirt for me…for $1.50, nice!

And last, here’s a picture of the pieced blocks for the Vicksburg FREE BOM to complete the pictures from my last post 😉

Have a great Labor Day weekend.
