UFO’s I’d like to get done but will take longer than a month or didn’t make the list:

Hand quilt Cherrywood Bricks –

Quilt  & Bind Liberty Quilt –

Quilt & Bind Summer Cabins –

Set First Saturday Asian Surprise blocks –

Set First Saturday Tipsy Fox blocks –

Finish & set Scrappy Star blocks –

Quilt & bind Technicolor Yawn

Folk Style Sampler – applique three remaining blocks

Wowsa!!  I think this is, perhaps, too challenging of a list to accomplish in one year.  I do, however, work best with deadlines so perhaps Judy’s challenge will be just what I need to drive me over the edge help me finish up some things that have been hanging around.

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

Word Play Quilts

I was reading Lynne’s blog today.  She mentions making a four letter word for Tonya awhile back and it made it onto the cover of Tonya’s new book, Word Play Quilts.  I, too, made a word for Tonya:

OMG, it’s on the cover too!!!!  Top right, see it??  Woo hoo, now I -have- to get Tonya’s book although that was never in doubt 😉  Lynne has used letters in her quilts a lot and they are terrific.  She’s an artist and, boy, does it show in her work……I’m not surprised at all that Lynne may have a quilt pictured in Tonya’s new book.
