Strips and more strips

I’ve been busy in sewing room pressing strip sets I had previously made and making some more, but I wanted to get to the more fun part – seeing what a few of the blocks on the design wall would look like with their framing added to them.

DSCN3907I wasn’t sure if I would really like lighter framing color I picked  it’s sort of a cross between tan and taupe but it looks really good with the other fabrics.

I’ve gotten the top row of blocks all framed and just started on the second row,

Stashbusting and Quilts from 100 Blocks

It’s been a while since I did a stash busting report – my problem is I keep starting things and not finishing them – or simply finding time to sew.  Both design walls are full.

I didn’t get to any sewing yet this week but I did donate 5 yards to  a co-worker’s child for a school project they were working on.

so my numbers stand atstashbustingcapture

They are not earth shattering numbers by any means but I definitely don’t just randomly purchase fabric like I used to (now if I could transfer that to yarn purchasing).  Oh well…….

DSCN3906The Asian project on the left of the design wall all came from my stash and I plan to work a bit on the sashing strips  that go with it this afternoon.

Have you seen the  latest Quilts From Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issue – Fall ’14 which is available now — and has been out for a little while.

DSCN3904I just received my complimentary “advance” (tho not so advance in this case due to an address error) 🙂 copies and inside is “Frozen Friends,” a wall hanging design based on my “Should’a Flown South” block in the last issue (Issue 9) of 100 Blocks.  Too cute if I do say so myself.


Just leave a comment on this blog post (must live in the U.S. to enter) to be entered into the random drawing for the extra copy of the magazine I have.  Winner will be announced next Sunday.
