Thanksgiving Sudoku -

So I got the sashing and cornerstones on as planned - ;))

And then added the borders -

Ta-Dah!! - ;))

Here's a close-up of the top left corner - ;))

The borders are a bit narrower on this one -
Since they were determined by the width of the strip in my stash -
Which started out as a regular 1/4 yard length -
But which shrunk when it was pre-washed - UGH!! -


I would much rather have it shrink BEFORE I sewed it to something -

Than AFTER - ;))

That's why I try to pre-wash everything except Jelly Rolls -

And why I toss my 5" Charm Squares -
And small scraps in the salad spinner - HERE - ;))

Anyway -

Today is the first day of September -

And I'm switching gears - ;))

I want/need to get some of my tops QUILTED -

Before I run out of year -

And have nothing to show for it - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Design Wall Monday - 8/31/15

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 - ;))

On my wall today -

My Thanksgiving Sudoku -

After finishing the tops for my June Wedding - July Americana - and Halloween Sudoku Quilts -

I was on a roll -

And had one more Sudoku Quilt already "cut and kitted" - ;))

A while back I developed a little system to "chain-piece" these puppies -

So it didn't take me long to make all of the 9-patches -
And put them on the wall - ;))

Today I plan to add the sashing - cornerstones - and borders - ;))

Tomorrow is the first day of September -

New month -

New beginning -

And the perfect time to switch gears - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
