Design Wall Monday April 29, 2013

The stack is getting more rounds sewn on. Pretty soon the design wall will be covered with these. There are 63 of them so it will make a BIG Quilt.  There is actually 3 quilts cut from the Batik scraps right now.
2 kings and a possible queen.
This is a close-up of one of the block that is close to being full size.
I thought it would be good to show the progress I've made on my UFO LIST. 
I know it's time to re-do the list when there are this many crossed out/highlighted.

M & M Quilters -Blocks Progress

The Tuesday class spent most of their time cutting out blocks.

  June brought her Blocks that she is making 4 of to have a King Size like Lynn's A & C with Pinwheel Frames Quilt.  She is using the same "Butterfly" Fabric for her center squares. They look very different with the combination she chose.
Mary C got her Alternate Blocks all sewn.  The Romance Continues has 13 of these blocks.  That means lots of 4-patches and flying geese.

 Her quilt center is all together now and she is ready to add the borders. She came out to cut them on Wednesday.  Note to others using the Border stripe- Read the full directions.  Don't cut between the white and blue Floral border. Mary C's quilt will be a little different size than the Pattern unless she adds the seam allowance she lost to the inner border.  

 Wednesdays class was lively as usual and we got to see more blocks in the works.

Julie H from Mesa chose fabrics in her favorite theme for "The Romance Continues"  Her blocks include one from the other BOM that she cut by mistake in these fabrics.  It's great to see the blocks in all the variety of fabrics the M & M Quilters have picked.

These are Patty's Blocks. She is just starting on her A & C with Pinwheel Frames Quilt.  Most of her fabrics came from her STASH at home.  Patty is June's Friend and they both love their Purple fabric. June came on both days and got another of her corner blocks made.
Lynn worked on her Log Cabin Batik Quilt and has almost got the 60+ blocks finished.  They should be on Monday's Design Wall.

Design Wall Monday- April 1, 2013

On the Design Wall is Tammy's B & W rose quilt she is making for herself!
It is in Memory of her Grandmother, who told her to make a totally B & W quilt.  
She is ready to add a kicker white border and more of the black swirls 
for the final border and get this one quilted so she can put it on her bed.
 Mary Ellen has her Purple Roses Blocks ready to cut and re-sew for her D9P.
 June is making one just like this!

The "End of Bolts" Sale continues through April 10th. 
It includes the 108" Backings fabrics too.
 If you are wanting a quilt finished NOW is the best time to get your backing...
More bolts being added every day!

 And last but not least on this April Fool's Day is another NEW Project for Lynn.  They brought home the Log Cabin Die for the ACCUQUILT from Spring TRENDS and had to try it out with her Batik scraps.
That's just the first set she has started making with a Black Background. Ready for the 4th round.
There's enough Batik scraps cut for TWO King Sized Log Cabin Quilts.
