Design Wall Monday - 6/23/14


I have been working the Lozenge blocks as Bonnie Hunter's leader/ender project and have another large group finished to add to the box.  I really need to count them out (grouped these in 10's and the box I think they are by 20's) and figure my size - I probably have enough now to start putting this together.


And I hope these are the last of the 9-patch blocks - I made about 4 times too many for a Bonnie Hunter mystery long ago.  I found the pretty floral in my old dresser (old fabric storage system).  I think some one gave me this as I don't remember buying it.  As you can see in the photo - don't let fabrics sit too long and especially in a light - there was a fade across the length of the center fold.


I was able to get just enough cuts (and not use that faded fold) to make up this flimsie.  But it needs 2 or 3 borders - you know how I love borders - so this will sit for a while on that.  OR it may get sent off to Sarah's group for a finish.


And keeping up with the rows of the Trifle Dish Sew Along at Moda Bake Shop.  I love those posies and I will admit I made a mistake on those.  I totally forgot to 'mirror' the leaves - I'll blame it on chain piecing around two furries.  So I had to completely re-do them as these are all from the scrap bin and I didn't have any fabric left to just re-do the mirror side.  Yup, a pile of leaves went into the trash.


I picked up a fun FQ bundle of Riley Blake 'Peak Hour' back in 2012 thinking one of my grandsons would like a quilt from it.  Well Angry Birds and Thomas the Tank won out there, so this sat.  My SIL made a stroller quilt with some of it and I used the rest for the Scrap Basket QAL.  I'm making a modified Rail Fence quilt to donate to Margaret's Hope Chest

Sewingly Yours,

  4. Wow! You've been working on some nice projects. I've been tempted by the Trifle Dish quilt but haven't started it. After seeing yours, my resistance is weakening!

  5. Those lozenges are really varied and interesting. I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    I've managed to stay away from the Trifle Dish Sew Along. Maybe I shouldn't have done.

  6. Great group of projects, Sharon!! I know what you mean about the fade on the fold - I had it happen to an entire bolt - yiks!! But the blue sure goes well with those 9 patches!!

  9. I sure like your nine patch quilt! Love those posies! I am doing Bonnie's Lozenge L/Es too. I have not counted mine. I have no idea what size of quilt I will make out of them, I will just keep making them!

  10. Wow, you've got a lot going on, Sharon! Love the nine-patch, and those posies are special! Sorry you had a hard time with the leaves - but doesn't learning from mistakes build character? Hugs!

  11. Oh, I hate when I do something wrong. I don't think I've ever had to start over though. Not because I didn't need to, but because I just refused to. Ha!

    Love that little FQ bundle. Really cute fabrics!!

  13. I keep seeing the row quilts here and there and love them all - and I keep saying, "don't look, don't look" since I'm committed to finishing UFOs. :) blessings, marlene

  14. It all looks great and yeah for the flimsy finish. I'm sure it felt good to use up those extra blocks.
