Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oi, Oi, Oi

Anyone else watch Jimmy Kimmel & Adam Carolla on The Man Show so many years ago?  At the end of the show they would hoist a beer and chant, “Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oi, Oi, Oi”………I found the show hillarious…..granted it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it made me laugh.  So, when my husband saw my lastest quilt top he did The Man Show chant, thus naming this quilt 😉  This quilt is from  Sujata Shah, of The Root Connection’s,workshop and is from her book, Cultural Fusion Quilts.  I took the workshop along with Robin Stewart and Julie Sefton….great fun.

I’m happy with the way it turned out and it was so fun selecting the fabrics. 

I’m working on a new Bonnie Hunter quilt, Scrap Crystals from her More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.  I’m using autumn colors which are quite different that the blues & greens of Bonnie’s quilt.  Below is my design counter 😉

I’m sewing on Scrap Crystals as my main project but I have Celtic Solstice as my leader/ender project.  I love the colors Bonnie chose for Celtic Solstice so I’m not mixing the colors up on this one.  Fun times! 

I’ll be linking up with Judy’s Design Wall Monday link-up later. Edited to add: the DWM link.

Soooo, we need new potholders but I haven’t been inspired to make them.  I dug around in the orphan bin, no inspiration.  There was a loud crack and a flash (well maybe that was all in my head), but inspiration struck.  I could make Abstracts in Solids potholders!  And they didn’t have to be square or rectangle, they could lean, if they wanted to 🙂  And they could be made from the scrap bags of Cherrywood fabrics I’ve purchased over the years.  And I. LOVE. THEM. Of course I’m not the cook in the family, but still!

I finished one and two are ready for sandwiching 🙂  Hop over to Judy’s DWM post and check out what inspiring things popping up on design walls across the land.

It is a dark, dreary, misty/rainy day, but it is a holiday so its all good 🙂  Go here to Judy’s DWM post to see design walls with more to show than mine!  My wall has a mismash of things on it….a couple of units from Bonnie Hunter’s recent mystery, some flying geese blocks because I made a mistake cutting the most recent First Sat block wrong, etc 😉 

DWM 1-16-17I finished my second purple broken dishes blocks.  I recently bought a dark purple shirt and I love it in this block although it doesn’t photograph well at all.
