Design Wall Monday - 10/27/14


DESIGN WALL MONDAY -
Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))
===


IT'S A FLIMSY!! -

IT'S A FLIMSY!! -

Easy Street Detour Around The World -

Is FINALLY a FLIMSY!! - ;))

TA DAH!! - ;))


This puppy is HUGE!! - ;))

The bed in the photo is King-size -

And the quilt top has a nice "drop" on both sides - ;))

It started out as EASY STREET -

Bonnie Hunter's 2012 Mystery Quilt Easy Street - HERE -

But I switched out her colors and chose my own - ;))

Then I took a slight DETOUR when I swapped some colors mid-mystery -

Most of the CHOCOLATE bits would have been RASPBERRY -

If I had stayed with my original substitutions -

And that would have been WAY TOO MUCH raspberry for me - ;))

Then I added my own AROUND THE WORLD border -

So I call my version -

EASY STREET DETOUR AROUND THE WORLD - ;))

Of all of the Bonnie Hunter patterns and mysteries that I have made -

And I LOVE her patterns -

I think that this one is my FAVORITE!! - ;))

It has enough variety in the blocks to make it interesting -

It's relatively easy -

And it has a TON of little bitty pieces - ;))

I also like the "on point" setting -

And I like how the blocks blend into one another -

They don't end where you think they do - ;))

It took me a LONG time because I'm a S-L-O-W P-O-K-E Quilter -

And it did get tedious at times -

BUT -

I think that I will DEFINITELY make this one again!! - ;))

Thanks, Bonnie!! - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

TUSAL - 10/23/14


Once again I have joined a bunch of other stitchers -

In Daffycat’s TUSAL - HERE -

It's a Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long - ;))

To play the game -

I have to fill my glass container -

With saved thread clippings -

Or ORTS - Old Ratty Threads -

Fabric trimmings -

Stitching cast-offs -


And then -

On (or about) the New Moon -

Take a picture of the ORTS in my jar -

Post it to my blog -

With a link back to her TUSAL post - HERE -

Label the Totally Useless posts with “TUSAL” -

And then visit her blog and comment on her ORT report for that month's TUSAL - ;))


It's EASY -

It's TOTALLY USELESS -

And -

It's FUN!! - ;))

This year I decided NOT to empty my jar each time -

Maybe a year-to-date accumulation of ORTs -

Will make it look like actually DID something - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
