I came home last night to find Betty's Midnight Flight swap blocks had arrived from Maryland.  Nice job Mom!  There are still a few more to arrive before November 30th (including mine...).

I had fun with ten others after work last night at Buggy Barn Club.  This group gets together the third Thursday of each month at Paradise Sewing in Poway.  This is the first time I've been able to attend and I certainly will go again.  I had all my blocks sewn together for Krazy Koons but needed design wall space to lay it out.  I had a little trouble with which blocks looked best besides each other.  Fortunately I was in the right place to get all kinds of opinions and one that you see everyone agreed with.  I'm putting it together today!

Paradise Sewing just called and said my Pfaff was ready to be picked up...guess where I'm off to now?  Enjoy your Friday.

Design Wall Monday, November 17, 2014

Saturday I got two quilts back from Kerry.  What a lovely job she does.  The first one Koliding Krosses (another one named by my Sister) is made from the Earth & Sea design by Cheryl Malkowski at www.cherylmalkowski.com.  I've had this pattern since Timeless Treasures featured it for their Tonga Batiks in 2010.  It was my #9 UFO this year.  I have the darkest of the blues for a scrappy binding.

Next up is Konstituent my #4 UFO this year.  It is from the first of 12 Month Pattern Series called Building Blocks that Cozy Quilt Designs released.  Sharyn Craig was the Designer and Wendy Mathson the Pattern Architect.  While I was working on this project I thought so much of taxi cabs...wonder why?  I think this series continues today, perhaps this year on the third series.  Cozy Quilts would have them if you are interested.  I have more of the black outer border to use for the binding.  Speaking of the border; this is a design from our very own Judy from her 60 Pieced Quilt Borders book.  If you don't have Judy's awesome book put it on your Christmas or Birthday wish list.  This one is a favorite of my DH.  Kerry thinks it would make a nice baby quilt.  Check out the alphabet quilting design.

My wall still has Koncentric Konnection on it.  I'm hopeful to get back my Pfaff mid week from being repaired and serviced.  I need to get cracking if this project is to complete this month per the #3 UFO schedule.

In the meantime my Janome has been set up in my sewing cabinet.  Busy working on Midnight Flight Swap Units and Krazy Koons.  All the dogs are done; flowers are in progress.  Happy to have these bonus triangles for a future project.  There will be just as many after the second half of these units are sewn in place.

Sunday Stash Report, November 16, 2014

A mystery project...a trip to Rosie's...watch the stash report numbers take a dive!  That's okay though; I know these fabrics have a home and won't be in my stash very long.  The Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion Mystery Project starts real soon and these fabrics just aren't in my stash...well until now.  How about Kadabra for a quilt name?
