A Finish to Report and the Week Ahead on the Design Wall Monday

KerBloom! is now finished.   I spent the last 2 hours and 40 minutes sewing the binding on.  I watched the Amazing Race and the Good Wife.  I love the Good Wife.  And nearly 3/4 the way through the Mentalist.

My standard Sunday Night Fare.

The great thing about finishing KerBloomm! is that I get to claim the quilt and the backing on both my next week's Stash Report AND my OPAM for April.  Which means I am at 14 completions for the year, and I am right on track for One Project A Month for the first quarter of 2014.  Yes!

My week's work will be to complete the quilting on the Star quilt, which needs a really dynamite   name.  I am doing ruler work which is slowing me down.  I should have done Meandering Stars and it would be done by now.  but I wanted to practice with my channel locks on the wheels.  If I would have realiz
ed that that only works on the four small corners and that all the stars require angled lines, I could have rethought the process and made a different choice.

See where I forgot to lock the rollers?  It made the quilt skew and the sewing line was skewed as well.

The other thing I wanted to get accomplished this week is to finish up Sunshine on the Water for the Fiber Group.  And I need to put the borders on the Machine Quilt and get that ready for the frame.  I already have the backing!

That will be a nice finish to report on my Stash Report as well!


  1. Love the buggy barn dog quilt! SO fun! Sounds like you a making a lot of headway - 14 finishes! Outstanding!

  2. The quilting on the ke bloom looks like McTavishing! Nice :-)


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
