I have a few finishes to share today.

First up is the Green/Blue quilt.

Design Wall Monday 7.31.2017

Well...I thought I would take my green and blue 3.5 inch strips and make something fun and easy.

Two color rail fence was the first pattern that came to mind

and well--

It didn't really work as I envisioned.

(sad face)

I am continuing on as I am sure someone will fall in love with it and adore it for all it's

un-unified-ness!    (is that a word?!)

Whoop! Whoop! 7.28.2017

I have a finish to share with you!

The brown/cream strip tube ruler quilt is done!

Quilt stats:

pattern: Simplicity

panto: popcorn

size (before quilting): 57 x 76

destination: Oconomowoc Quilt Guild/Jefferson County Foster Care kids

Here is the red/tan/blue strip tube ruler quilt in progress.

I really wanted to set it in the off center barn raising, but when I started to sew it together - well, the seams were definitely NOT matching up! bummer, right?!

So I settled on what I have named - Hanging Diamonds. I staggered the rows for added interest. I'm sure this has a proper name but I just sorta put the blocks on the design wall and the quilt formed itself with very little input from me!

I was also able to quilt it down today.

The borders are on Simplicity!


This one will wait for awhile before quilting as I have a few other sewing priorities right now.

Sorry for the wonky picture--but you get the idea!
