Design Wall Monday 12.2.2019

...or what I'm working on.

I started a fabric wreath while I was away for Thanksgiving. It started simply as a way to keep busy. I cut two different blues 1.5 x 9.5 inches. I looped the fabric around a metal frame I purchased at the Dollar Tree. I also purchased a few glittery white snowflakes. I am actually kinda liking it.

Wreath inspiration found here.

sorry for the sideways pic, I can't quite figure out how to rotate pictures from my phone...

I'll hang it on the outside of my house in January. I'm totally into Dollar Tree Decor! lol

Whoop! Whoop! on Wednesday 11.27.2019

Well, I finished the brick quilt and it was chosen as a gift for a member of the guild's Christmas family (a grandpa!). Perfect. Only I didn't take a picture with the binding on. Trust me, it has the binding...lol

pattern: brick wall found here.

panto: large scribbles (I really out to change this panto out)

I like it, sorta, not real sure that I'll make another. There are other patterns that I like better...

Design Wall Monday 11.25.2019

So, my friend and table mate at retreat made this quilt from donated fabric.

It is based on this quilt, tutorial found here.


















I was aware that the Ocon Quilt Guild has way more girly quilts that boyish quilts. So I dug into my browns and cut for the brick wall quilt.

Here is my version...

Always a rebel...I wanted my streak to go the other way!

Design Wall Monday 11.18.2019

I decided to dig into my 2.5 inch red and blue strips. To jazz it up, I thought I would make the Jelly Roll Race 2 using red/white/blue little squares.

Good plan, right?

I followed MSQC tutorial.

I kept track of my beginning and end-to make life easier.

Somehow, my little squares are mostly clumped together?

I don't get it.

I'm having a comprehension issue...

Maybe I need to give this pattern another whirl?!

I finished piecing the next 'spare parts' flimsy!

It's a little on the WILD side...even for me. LOL

I'm also happy to report that NOW I can close the lid to my blue 'spare parts'! Yay!

pattern credit: I've had this itty bitty photo of 'spare parts' on the sewing room wall FOREVER!
