Design Wall Monday 12-17-12

Progress is being made but not a whole lot that I can show you.  So I'm showing off my baskets of units.

First, SS#6 basket, all leftovers: 

And next Easy Street basket:

Good thing SS #6 is empty because Easy Street is going to be overflowing really soon. What is hard to tell here is this basket is about 2" high and is much smaller than the one above.  I'm still on Clue 2 but I'm almost done with them so will be starting Clue 3 this week hopefully. 

I also did a bit of fabric shopping this week.  These two are from AAA Quilter Supply.  I was really amazed at how fast it came all the way across the country. Shipping is quoted at around $10 and I was saving enough money on the fabric that it didn't bother me.  However, when the fabric arrived about 3 days later it was jammed into a small Priority Mail envelope so the shipping was about half of what was shown on the web page.  Was I happy with this purchase?  You bet I am! Would I order from them again.  Absolutely! I'm sure you can guess that the white and black is for Easy Street. It's already been cut and used for the little wings on the flying geese.  The green is a wide back for SS #6. I so didn't want to piece a queen size back! Here's the web page for the black and white one althought you will have to scroll down to find it.

Everything got done on the goals list:

It's time for me to get going today.  If I want to get a quilt top put together I have to get off the computer!  Happy Quilting All!
