Progress On Design Wall & Another Sale

Blogroll, Dear Jane – “Insanity Revisited”

I spent some time at the sewing machine on Wednesday in the hot afternoon.  Two rows are now completely sewing together, the next two rows of blocks are sewed together in rows but not to the main body of the quilt as the very first two rows are.  Think elongated stretched out diagonal stars and you might see what I am calling stars.  “Stairs Through the Stars” is beginning to take shape.


A little more quilting on Insanity Revisited Tuesday night – I will be working next on the very edge of the quilt row – a pieced triangle, a plain triangle and the scallops.


Free Quilt Patterns – here is an update on an old unique site – has free patterns, a free Mystery BOM designed by Pat Sloan if you are interested in this type of site you might want to check it out.  This block is the center block of the Mystery quilt and it is the largest it says and from looking at it I think it is really pretty – love these colors.  The site shows the patterns in two color ways and there are 9 blocks I think they are up to block #6 right now.  The site has a side bar where you can change colors of patterns and has some design capabilities.  This site is on the side bar of the blog, but this site has been revamped and is different then it once was.

    Good to know about that free quilt patterns site. I love Pat Sloan designs, although I really don’t need any more ideas!!

    I’m always on the hunt for free quilt patterns, not that I make too many of them (mostly because of lack of time … I’ve already got a long list of “must-make” quilts).

    It’s been hot here, too … perfect day to stay inside and sew (or cut fabric). 😉

    Wow — I can’t believe how quick you are! It seems like you just started that stars quilt and now you’re putting it together!!!

    Did you layout the blocks the same way as the original quilt? I ask because that is how I follow along to see where you are progress wise on the quilt. It’s looking good so far.

    I loved using my design wall finally as a design board on this quilt I am almost done with! Thanks for the bloggy encouragement that got me to use it for it.. it was a lifesaver for sure! Love how everything is coming along… are you stitching on Insanity just as you feel each block should be done as you get to it? Just curious really …. looks like it would be fun that way ! Kathi

    I am a huge Craftsy fan and this is a great sale if you’d like basics–kona charm packs for $6, for example…just sayin!

    Love your blog! Very inspirational!
