Design Wall Monday-ish

I started a few new things this past week.  Finished up the twins quilts, yay for striped binding!IMG_1992

I got out my Baby Go! and cut a bunch of batiks into butterflies.  I used Misty Fuse, I like it because it is so light and still holds well.  No needle gumming up when sewing around the edges.  I want to make some kind of sashing for these.  They are from Edyta Sitars Accquilt die.  The pattern included with it has small nine patches and solid white bars in-between the blocks.  I’m thinking something with greens and assorted colors, like a pixelated garden.  I need to marinate the idea a bit longer.IMG_1993

I started and almost finished the Pointy quilt.  I am using a pantograph called “Deja Vu”, its got feathers and swirls.  I think it compliments the arrows nicely, as it’s not a very dense panto.  I had to stop at the last row, because there was a bit of gathering in the center, boo.  There was some un-sewing involved.

 

The Farmers wife blocks got put on hold, for a shiny new kit from a Moda line called “Thicket”by Gingiber.  I first saw it at the Fat Quarter Shop , looks like they are sold out of the kit, but the project sheet and fabrics are still available.  I like the mix of graphics, the black and white designs are crisp and the animals are pretty cute.

Lastly, in a self-less effort to single handedly revive the fabric industry, I bought another kit from Craftsy.  I have liked this fabric line since I first saw it, it’s called “Purebred” by Erin Michael, also by Moda.  There is something about the color way I find restful, and it has a horse theme.  The pattern is called Piccadilly, large assorted wedge circles on the green background.  Not to leave out the sale at another online fabric store I scored seven yards of a 30’s print which will be perfect for the Farmers Wife quilt.   Yay! for stash enhancement, although these are for real projects…and sale priced.

And then there is this. Sigh.
