Design Wall Monday, June 29, 2015

Kamikaze continues to bogart my design wall.  Nothing has changed with it since I shared it last.  DH showed an interest in the colors of this beauty...wondered why it hadn't been worked on in a while.  Well, it sure isn't because I don't want to :(.  I've just had lots on my palate of late.  Fortunately that trend changes this week!  I need some sewing downtime for sure.

QOV Quilt 1

QOV Quilt 2
I learned what my UFO challenge will be for July.  #11 which is a Quilt of Valor design that is all kitted up from Country Threads.  Quilt 1 is to be made first with the leftover pieces making Quilt 2.  I'm looking forward to working with the red, white, and blue fabrics so appropriate for the month of July.

Kamikaze to finish first, then the two QOV quilts Koronado and Kidd.  You may be wondering about these QOV quilts names; both are currently in commission USS Navy ships with San Diego, CA being their home port.  Seemed appropriate in a few ways =^.^= although I did take some liberty with the USS Coronado.  I will also be sliding in another project, the San Diego Humane Society Fur Ball quilt donation.  This will be year 15 of helping out the animals at their annual black tie fundraising event.

Hope your week is all that you want it to be.  Happy stitching!

#10 June 2015 UFO
June UFO DONE!  Krossways is finished along with the back and prepping the binding and sleeve.  I had hoped to make it a bit larger, but the light purple ran out too soon.  It has turned out a good size nonetheless.  It is funny that I thought from the start it would need to be a smaller project.  It wasn't the light purple that I anticipated that would run out before the cream.

Today I plan to work a bit on assembling Kamikaze (#5 2015 UFO).  You can learn more about each of these two projects through the link to my 2015 UFOs.  I have a wedding to go to first!

 Not long ago I showed my Clue Challenge project (2nd row, 1st project).  I thought you'd be interested in seeing all of them.  You certainly must use your imagination to figure out the Person, Place, and Weapon on some of these.
June 2015 UFO
I was able to finish the first two blocks of my June UFO last night.  I'll make as many as the neutral holds out!  The block on the right is what caught my eye.  I like how the crosswise design looks like it is wavy.  The unit is a square (the blue or medium purple) sewn at the corner edge of the rectangle (light purple).  I hope to have a few more of these done later tonight.

Enjoy your day!
