Design Wall Monday, November 24, 2014

I've finished stitching down all the birds, back has been found in my stash, batting is next to cut.  I'm ready with Krazy Koons for Kerry's Quilting!
When Krazy Koons was finished I turned my attention to Koliding Krosses.  The binding and sleeve are stitched down, label is next!
Finally my Sunday closes on the Midnight Flight swap blocks.  I had the first half done on all of the units when I started.  Now I have the remaining half done on half of these.  I will be running another seam to give me that extra bonus triangle.  Many in the swap have taken advantage of this.  Not only will I be putting together a Midnight Fight design, but have plenty of blue/neutral and purple/neutral HSTs for another project.
Koncentric Konnection awaits me...  Pfaff is back and purring...

Announcements have been delivered to me for my entries submitted to Road to California for the 2015 Quilt Show in Ontario, California.  I was lucky this year with Kookaburra to be accepted.  I'll be having it appraised by Julia Zgliniec today before I send it to off to the show organizers.  It needs to be in their hands during the first weeks of December.

Sunday Stash Report, November 23, 2014

I did a little bit of stash enhancement this week.  The top fabric was an end of bolt deal at 30% off uncovered at Paradise Sewing in Poway.  I have one more UFO to accomplish this year that I've not set aside any fabrics for so this will be the back!  Nothing like working from the back first...  In case you wondered my UFOs are patterns I've collected that need making.  Nearly all of them this year have been from start to finish.  That shows in the fabric in and out this year.  I have been using my stash, but still end up needing fabrics!
Kadabra Fabrics
These two greens will be used for Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery that is about to start.  I have yet to look through my pinks.  I do believe I'm set there, but more enhancement might be necessary.  These fabrics area also from Paradise Sewing in Poway.

Krazy Koons
I do have a completion to count this report.  My Krazy Koons is complete.  I've been hand sewing down the birds, but it's now ready for Kerry to do her magic.  Here are my numbers for this week.
Koncentric Konnection
I'm so happy to have my Pfaff back!  Repairing and servicing are a necessity, but what an inconvenience when your "buddy" is away...  Now back to my November UFO, Koncentric Konnection!

Friday, November 21, 2014

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.
