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.
