Design Wall Monday

No quilting happened this week.
Fabric was touched, sorted, cut and kitted.

I did sew up a new shirt so the serger and coverstitch machine were used, 
but the sewing machine remained off all week.
I'll try to remedy that this week.

I took 2 bins of fabric and rulers with me to the beach.
I used my Easy Center Square and Essential Triangle Tool to cut my square in a square parts.
These will be used for a border on a UFO.
(There is enough cut to border 2 quilts! 
Why stop when you are on a roll.)
Easy Peasy with the right tools!
Bonnie has an awesome tutorial here if you don't have the ruler.
(Quiltville is my first go to for tutorials.)
I was one of the lucky ones and was able to grab the Easy Center Square ruler 
when Bonnie was selling them.

I also used lots of 2" strips to cut a small quilt.
All the parts almost fit into a quart zip bag.

These are my leftovers.
They will go into my Scrap User's System and the garbage.
Garbage on the left, Wild & Goosey parts, 2" squares and strings and strips.
I love taking fabric to the bus and coming home with projects all kitted up.

The only sewing I did at home this week was on the Mischief Quilt.
I have all the rows clipped together.
It's one row at a time,
trying to stay organized and in order. 
This picture is all the blocks for the first row.

There is a safety pin it the top left corner of block one.
The unsewn blocks stay clipped together with a binder clip, 
the next block is taken off the stack and sewn to the right hand side.
I try to stay organized, really I do. 😉

Your mischief blocks are beautiful in the batiks. It's so wonderful having quilts cut and ready to sew. That's a great project to do while you are at your bus. Now we can look forward to seeing your quilts come together!

Love your Mischief blocks. Kitting quilts is a very necessary part of the process, especially if one wants to leader and end as one sews. You've reminded me of this - thank you. I'm going to spend some time doing one today.

Your Mischief blocks are wonderful! What fun to do all that cutting and prepping for sewing! I look forward to seeing more fun things when you turn your machine on. I can't imagine what you will accomplish then! :)
