Design Wall - February 4, 2013

Here's what's up on my design wall today:

This is really the Dottie Do Little Mystery from Jean Ann Quilts and is part of the Sunbonnet Sleuth mysteries. The directions were a bit confusing and I didn't purchase the correct fabrics so I had to substitute and I don't like what I had on hand. I bought aqua and in one of her directions, she included teal from out of the blue, but I just thought she meant aqua, so now I have lots of aqua and no teal and an oddball green. Although it doesn't look too bad in this photo, I would have liked more blue-ish colors and not better greens as part of the shopping list. I volunteered to be a tester. <grin> 

I'm doing a yellow and pink inner borders and white outer border with gray for binding. Not sure about the backing yet. I think I will see what I have leftover and see if I can substitute here and there. 

Linking this to Patchwork Times design wall Mondays.

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
