60" x 60"
I finished binding this one on Sunday during the football games.  We had a delightfully rainy day in San Diego.  How perfect is that match for a few hours of binding?  The quilt was started at Road to California 2015 during the evening mystery.  The mystery workshop was with Tiffany Hayes, her design called Downton Abbey.  Tiffany is the creator of the Goddess Tool.  You may wonder about the name I have given my was inspired by a blog follower of mine.  The Carnarvon family seems to be linked to the Earl of Grantham.  Of course I took liberty with the "C".

This past Monday was my birthday.  My Mom sent me a birthday cute is this little kitty?  Today is my sister's birthday.  She has always been a birthday wish come true as two brothers were born ahead of her.  I finally had a sister!  Quite a wonderful gift for a nine year old me.  Happy Birthday Karen!

Design Wall Monday, October 5, 2015

Krystal Kreek is my UFO for October, #8.  It has been done now for a little while.  It is a design by Bonnie Hunter called Lady of Lake Erie.  Quiltmaker Magazine brought it to us in the May/June 2011 issue.  I had hoped to use the bonus triangles from Kamikaze, but doing so would not have worked unless I wanted a completely scrappy block.  Not a problem though because everything was available in my stash...ahh good!

I'm still working on Komatose.  What is left is the pieced border, sashing, and final assembly.  The first photo are all the Unit 1s ready to be stitched.  The second is one half of the top border.  It will be joined with the same number of Unit 2s.  Komatose is my #3 UFO project.  Have a wonderful week!

Sunday Stash Report, October 4, 2015

This weekend I have been able to finish most of the piecing.  Above are the four corner stones.  Next is the orange strip that will be used for the inner border.  All the outside border units are done too.  I have the sashing yet to go, but it is cut out.  A couple nights more should see this project into a top.
I got the November/December McCall's Quilting magazine this past week.  Snowy Day is perfect to use up a bunch of pinwheels that were once thought of for a round robin.  The blocks will finish half size of the pattern, but I'm excited about that.  I sure don't need another large project.  

No changes to stash this week.  I am looking forward to a little reduction with Komatose next week.  Enjoy your week ahead!
