I feel like I am swimming in projects and not finishing anything but I keep seeing so much inspiration! I have my latest Quiltmaker Scrap Squad
fabrics and design picked, ready for cutting and piecing.
My Fire Island Hosta is currently off the design wall, but not finished.
I made another Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt block and now I really want to get a bunch more blocks cut out. I hadn't worked on them since 2012!
I started the Farm Girl Vintage
by Lori Holt Sew Along and have 3 six inch blocks made. I am using a mixture of fun "girly" prints I have been collecting over the years.

The project below is the one on my design wall currently. While I was at a retreat at Reflections Inn
at the end of April a friend ran out of projects. I had obtained a jelly roll of Mixology Fabrics at a retreat last September in McCall, ID hosted by Craft Taffy
the sister site of Quilt Taffy
. As a side note I highly recommend their retreats and I'm signed up again for this September. There are still openings.
I had seen a cover quilt on a Scrap Quilts magazine by Fons and Porter called Strippy Pyramids and cut the strips and have been hauling them around. My friend Rosan pieced the strips together and I put the triangles on my design wall. I have the top two rows sewn together, along with the bottom two rows (they are piled up on the floor). I realized there is no purple in this quilt! I guess I am branching out. My quilt guild friends will think this is funny because I would NEVER use orange and yellow for years and years! Now they are showing up a lot more!
I have some machine quilting to do and lots of end of the year school stuff and field trips going on too. I am linking up with Patchwork Times
, check them out for other Design Wall projects!
