DWM 6-3-13

There’s been some action, of the layering on top of kind, on my design wall so I can participate in Design Wall Monday ;)

DWM 6-3-13

The April & May First Saturday main blocks are done.  I have the April, May alternate blocks and the June main and alternate blocks cut out and ready to sew.

I pulled out two flimsies that need backings before being quilted.  I can’t wait to finish these two projects that have been marinating since 2005 and 2009.

I added a yard of Italy fabric to make something cute for DGD in Aviano, Italy…..appropriate don’t you think? ;)

Monday Blocks

Here’s my design wall which is getting crowded with all the Grandmother’s Choice blocks :)

I finished up the alternate first Saturday block where I made yet another fabric substitution ;) 

My long arm Sophie & I bonded this weekend and I finished quilting our guild’s QOV string quilt.  I quilted pretty densely as I hope this quilt gets lots of use and therefore lots of washes.  I did loops and randomly placed stars….none of which show up well in the photo.

I’m happy that one of my recent Priority quilts has sold :)  I had a draft blog post I’d forgotten about that said these two quilts had been added to the Quilt for Sale page. 

Summer Traveling #12,978 is still available here

Beach Living # 12,979 has sold :)

I received two wonderful pieces of fabric from DD but I forgot to take pictures…….so here’s my stash report.

First Sat Block, Check

I finished the February alternate block.  I did substitute the dark fabric but it was because I did like the one included.  It was okay close up but when I saw the picture of the block on the website, the fabric looked muddied or something. 

At least I got this one together with all the colors in the right locations ;)

Happy Monday

It’s a good day, no snow, no sleet, no ice, no rain :)  I’ve not gotten much done this week but one of the things, quilting on Sophie is wonderful.  Wonderful because she is quilting so nicely now that she’s had an in home visit from the repair guy :)  I can quilt more than a minute without the thread breaking. I’m quilting my guild’s QOV quilt and it’s going so smoothly :)

I have a couple of new blocks on the design wall.

Block #24 – True Blue from the Grandmother’s Choice BOTW.

And the main block from February for the First Saturday group.

I had an oops when cutting the fabrics and had to replace the purple dot fabric.  And another oops when sewing the block together.  The jury is out on whether I will fix it.  Maybe I’ll just make a whole other block and use this on on the back….or not ;)

No change to the Stash Report even though our guild had a fabric exchange night, I managed not to bring home more than I took :)

Happy Quilting, Cherie
