And then there were 10!  Half of the Krazy Kookoos blocks are done.  There will be four of each color.  Blue, green, yellow, orange and pink.  After finishing these I readied the next ten fabrics in their specific order.  Ironed down the freezer paper cutting pattern and cut out each piece.  My pizza box is full again and ready for the next birdies to be sewn.

One work day done...four more to go...

Design Wall Monday, August 18, 2014

I continued working on Krazy Kookoos yesterday.  There are nearly ten completed with another ten to go.  The top five are ready for squaring up.  That will come as a last step in the process since I'll need to get them all to the smallest size block from all 20 that are to be made.  The bottom five are just two long seams from going to the wall!  All though 20 are to be sewn only 17 will make it to the quilt.  More on this too cute Buggy Barn design called Bird Brain in the coming days.

Oh by the way Buggy Barn designs are not paper pieced.  They are all cut pieces assembled together.  This design is a bit challenging I will admit.  Lots and lots of pieces come together to make these birdies!

Much more to see on the Design Walls of other quilters through the links at Patchwork Times.  Enjoy your week...

Sunday Stash Report, August 17, 2014

A visit to Rosie's Calico Cupboard on Friday enhanced my stash by 4 yards.  The two fabrics on the left will be used for Krazy Kookoos.  As a matter of fact the yellow is in the stack of fabrics ready to assemble into "Kookoos"!  One of the three purples will be used for Krossfire.  I didn't have the quilt with me, only a few of the fabrics, that I used get a piece large enough to go around.  Kerry's Quilting has it...can't wait to see how it comes out.  Time is running short so I need to be ready when Kerry finishes.  The FQ in the center is being used for the Midnight Flight Swap and Zuckerwatte.
