Design Wall Monday, Sunday Stash Report, Rainbow Scrap Saturday and Weekly Goals

Monday, March 31, 2014
This week has flow by!  This is what I am working on--

The pattern is called Honeysweet Pinwheels.  You can make it whatever size you'd like, the blocks finish to 16".  Although I HATE making HSTs, I am loving the blocks.  Check out everyone's design walls at Patchwork Times.

Stash report.  Not much changes there.  I've added 4.5 yds with no finishes.

Stash in YTD--38 yards
Stash out YTD--48 yards

I'm ahead--10 yards!

Rainbow Scrap Saturday--March was teal/jade.   I made six blocks this month--

Please see everyone's blocks at soscrappy.

Weekly Goals--
  1. Finish pinwheel blocks for border of Honeysweet Pinwheels
  2. Load/start quilting another quilt
  3. Work on a UFO
  4. Sew a binding on
Fri-Sat-Sun I sewed with the Iowa ladies.  They are hard core quilters!  Some ladies started at 6am and one night we sewed until 11:30pm.  I stayed with Lorri 2Rs--I had a blast!  Never pass up an opportunity to sew with others.  

Sharon had been working on a t-shirt quilt for a granddaughter--

Didn't it turn out lovely??  

Rhonda has been working on this quilt for over 15 years.  Its a present for her aunt--

Her aunt came to sew with us on Sunday and didn't recognize the quilt Rhonda had promised her 15 years ago.  When she found out it was for her--she cried!!  Look at all the tiny pieces, isn't it a beautiful quilt??

March is roaring out like a lion.  The wind is howling, the temp has dropped 20 degrees, and its going to SNOW.  Right now its spitting rain.  Temps tonight are going to drop to 12 degrees.  Noon was 58 degrees.  I better check my spare propane tank for my portable heater.  I don't think the power will go out, but I want to be prepared.

Gorgeous pinwheels - love it.

The sleet hurt my face when I walked to my car after work today. Guess we all need to stay inside and avoid the windy winter weather hitting us tonight.

Sure hope you don't get snow, it is April tomorrow!!!

Love the pinwheel quilt. I don't mind half square triangles (cheat and cut them out with the accuquilt) so I might have to try that one.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pinwheel quilt. I'm with ya on the HSTs. . . but they do make some really cool blocks!! Your color placement is perfect! The blocks look great :)

Your story about Rhonda and her aunt almost made me cry! What a wonderful story and what an absolutely stunning quilt.

Thanks for the pattern link for the pinwheels. I love your rainbow blocks, but I'm thinking red, whit, and blue.

Sewing with others is fun, and time passes quickly.

I have only recently been following your blog and love your quilts. We have very similar taste. Are granny square blocks hard to do?

Regarding the weather, I know we both live in the plains, but how much wind and cold weather is any one person suppose to take.
