Design Wall Monday

And then I looked thru my quilt kits
and pulled another FigTree kit,
called Buttercup Way ...
Nope, I don't know for how long I've had it,
but it is in the process of getting cut
and then sewn.
That's all that's important, right!?

And by the looks of it 
I can eek out some leftover fabric 
for my BirdSeed quilt in last week's post!

Design Wall Monday

Here is my Memorial weekend finish:
The Painted Ladies quilt top
by FigTree is done -
And I love how it turned out!

Now I am trying to figure out
how to continue with the
Sherbet and Creams QAL
 by FigTree.
I saw the reveal in their online video
and am thinking of an alternate setting.
Searching online,
I came across a free pattern 
that would use the pumpkin seeds
and the block sizes actually match!
It combines seeds with flying geese:

Here is my lay-out so far -
it certainly looks different with the skinnier seeds, 
different fabric and color scheme:

I can use an AccuQuilt die 
for the flying geese!
Hm, guess I'll have to look at it
for a while longer
before I make my decision...

Design Wall Monday

Just pulled hot of the sewing machine
my Painted Ladies soon to be quilt top:

(yep, it's sideways and doesn't want to turn...sorry)

So glad I got all the blocks sewn
-including the sashings-
and just the 2 outer borders are missing.
Very soon I should be able 
to see my living room floor again...

Design Wall Monday

I have been trying
to get the hang of applique
with FigTree's 
Sherbet and Creams quilt-along.
Still lots of pumpkin seeds to go,
but not too bad:
(poor light - sorry!)

Some more work was also done 
on my UFO Painted Ladies:
I am getting there- slowly.

Design Wall Monday

Have a look -
I've finished my Hi! quilt top:
Yeah - photo taken on my deck
in the sun. 
What a fabulous weekend this was!

Then I pulled out a newer UFO 
"Painted Ladies" to work on:
7 more blocks to go,
and then sewing it all together.
I do love the FigTree fabrics and pattern 
and hope to get it done quickly!

What are you working on?

Hi! Quilt top

Here is what I am working on right now:
Hi! Quilt,

I love the simplicity and the big blocks -
and it still looks fabulous!
In general hope to use up more stash
with the help of fast & cute quilt pattern
