It’s a few days late but I finally finished a new quilt for my front door.
I love all my little door front door quilts, they are easy, fast, fun to quilt and they give me a chance to just play.
It’s been a little crazy at my house lately but I finally have something I can show you up on my design wall.
Last week was the Road to California quilt show in Ontario, CA. This year I took a class from Catherine Redford called Happy Scrappy Improv Quilts. I’ve been wanting to a seat cushion cover for a while now and my plan is to use these pieces for each side of the cushion. It was a really fun and relaxing class. Catherine is a very patient teacher making her class really enjoyable.

I’m getting ready to head to New York for a short annual trip with my husband so it only seem appropriate to have a hand project for my Design Wall Monday.
These are some Sashiko blocks that I started a while back. They got put aside so that I could work on some other things but it’s a perfect project for me to work on while on the long flight to NY. As you can see, I have completed 5 of them. I’m currently stitching on the top left and I still have the top right to finish. I think I’ll be using them for the outside of another shopping backet but the final decision will come later.
I’m hoping to get to Mood this week. If you watch Project Runway you’ll understand. If not, sorry about that but it a wonderful fabric store right in the middle of NY’s garment district.

Still under my needle and and now waiting until next year. As I suspected this wall hanging will hopefully get finsihed by next year. You can’t see it but I’ve done quite a bit of quilting on the tree using a gold metalic thread from Superior. I’m sure the quilting will look great once it’s finished and the LED lights added.
Now it’s time to set it aside and start working on some other projects that have due dates right around the corner.

Enjoy and Happy New Year!
