March’s DWM

Here’s this weeks design wall picture.  Click over to Judy’s DWM post for links to other DWM posts.

Again, the only thing new is this week’s civil war BOW from Barbara Brackman, but hey, there is something new at least!

The three-patches have multiplied and they are pictured with, WHAT?!?!!?!?!?!, another project????  I’ve stopped keeping count of works-in-progress at the moment for the shame of having so many.

The blue/green three patches are for a Scrap Club project and will need to multiply faster over the next two weeks.  The purple strip sets are for a baby quilt for my soon to arrive granddaughter, Lily so they too better multiple fast!


Last, here’s my stash report update:

Aren’t these fabulous?  When I first started thrifting shirts for fabric, I selected muted colors, blues, browns, greens, reds and neutrals.  Now I’m on the hunt for bright, bold colors and these fit the bill.   They do my stash report no good but I love them 😉

Stash Report:

  • Fabric in:  3 yards (pink and orange thrifted shirts)
  • Fabric out: 0 yards
  • YTD Fabric in:  15 yards
  • YTD Fabric out: 9 yards
  • Net Fabric In/(Out): 6 yards accumulated

RRCB Strings!

I continued sewing on the Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll step 3 string blocks last night.  Bonnie mentions she works two string blocks, leader-ender style…..she sews a few, trims a few and de-papers a few.   I’m more of a sew the first seam on all the blocks kind of a person.  I worked at doing 10 at a time this weekend but I just couldn’t do that last night.  I –had– to get the remaining 49 blocks started with the first two strings, I’m just driven to do that.   The downside is I don’t get to say, “I finished X blocks last night”, lol.   Of course, I still do them leader-ender style so there’s always a couple of blocks running ahead 😉

Wall, What Wall?

It’s Design Wall Monday again and I’m usually excited about it but that’s because I usually have something new up.  Not so this week….boring 🙁  Click over to Judy’s DWM post to see some exciting design walls 😉

I did accomplish something this weekend…..drum roll, please……I have ALL the blocks for Technicolor Yawn sewn.   YEA!!  Here are all 18 “A” blocks and 17 “B” blocks, ready to sew into a top.   In fact, I was humming along on these blocks, having such fun, that I ignored that voice in my head that said, “You should spend a bit of time working on something else so you have some new on the wall for DSM”.

Did you hear that Bonnie Hunter is having another mystery quilt-a-long?   It’s Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll and I’ve been toying with the idea of doing this one.   I pulled two of the colors needed just to see if I’d have enough in my stash as I refuse to buy any more fabric this year.  I’m pretty sure I have enough…….

Scrap Vomit Has A New Name

And it’s “Technicolor Yawn”.  It’s perfect, really, because as Katy says, “It’s technicolour for sure. And sewing all those little squares together is certainly Yawnsome.”  Much better, don’t you think?  I have 10 of the “B” blocks finished now so only 7 more to go before I can start assembling the top 🙂
