Design Wall Monday - 3/4/13

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 - ;))

I put away the Folk Art Christmas Tree for now -
Folk Art Christmas Tree - HERE -
Folk Art Christmas - by Cindy Taylor Oates - (c) Taylor Made Designs -

I'll pull it out again on the 25th -

On the 25th of each month -
Until the end of the month -
I plan to work on a Christmas project -
One of my entries in the LTRTCWSA - 2013 -
Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed - 2013 -
The little “Race” that Linda - HERE - and I started - HERE -

A couple of days a month -
And the 25th just sounded right in my head - ;))

Anyway - as we all know -

This month we have TWO Holidays -

St. Patrick’s Day on March 17 -

And Easter on March 31 - ;))

So - last month - when I chose the fabrics -
For my Valentine’s Day Sudoku Quilt - HERE -

I went ahead and chose some fabrics -
For a St. Patrick’s Day Sudoku Quilt -

And an Easter Sudoku Quilt -

And then I cut my 9 stacks of 9 fabrics for each -
And set them aside -

Easter - 9 stacks of 9

My FAVORITE fabric is one that I chose -
For the St. Patrick’s Day Sudoku Quilt -
I asked my bloggy buddy - Julie Fukuda - HERE -
And she said that -
The writing is Japanese. It contains both Chinese characters, "kanji" and Japanese phonetic alphabet, "hiragana".
The color is PERFECT -
And I just couldn’t resist -
I HAD to include it - ;))

I pulled out the baggie and “cheat sheet” -

After making two Sudoku Quilts -
I decided to assemble this one a little differently -

Rather than lay out all of the squares first -
I chose my squares as I went along -
And chain-pieced them -

Block #1 - #4 - and #7 are done -
The rest are ready to go -

So today I should be able to get the blocks made -
The sashing and cornerstones attached -
And the top together -
And the borders on -

At least that’s the plan - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

That's a great idea. Doing two holidays at the same time. Hummmm I'm thinking that would be a great pattern for table toppers for the year. Oh My Gosh! Now see what you've done!! haha

It sure looks like that's what I'm doing - huh? But it certainly didn't start off that way - I was just trying to see if I could figure out how to make a Sudoku Quilt - and the dang things are like potato chips - I can't make just one - they are TOO FUN!! - ;))

Linda J said...

This is going to be cuter than the dickens--both of them. I swear that the Easter ones look just like the pastel dyed eggs with your fabric selections.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks - that's exactly what I wanted the Easter one to look like - ;))

Chris said...

I had totally forgotten Easter is this month as well. I love your Easter fabric selections.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Chris - ;)) I was surprised to see Easter come early this year - I always think that it's automatically in April - so I had planned my St Patrick's Day Sudoku Quilt for March and my Easter Sudoku Quilt for April. Since I don't have another one planned for April - the Easter one will have to do - ;))
