Design Wall Monday 10/20/14

I have been so busy this last week! Here's a look at everything I have had going this week.

First up, I got all the piecing done on my Rotaries in Bloom.  All that's left is the handwork.  These are for the Quilter's Garden Row Swap being hosted by Deana at Dreamworthy Quilts.  I'll be keeping this one...

Swapping this one....
 
 
And keeping these three...

I finished these blocks for my niece's graduation quilt, Zodiac Stars.  
 
I finished the last of my split nine patch leaders/enders project.  All 182 of them.  Assembling the rows on that one now so I should have that top finished to show you this week.
 
 And I started piecing the Sagittarius block for the Zodiac Quilt.
 
 
See?  Busy, busy week!  What have you been working on?  Go see what everyone has on their design wall over with Judy at Patchwork Times.

Union Jack Finish!

As promised, here is the finished top for the Union Jack quilt!!


This is going to be for my daughter's graduation come Spring, 2015.  Her school flag is the Union Jack and she's been watching this progress with a close eye.  The quilt top is paper pieced using the pattern from the January, 2014 issue of McCall's Quilting called, "His Royal Union Jack."


The original pattern called for making 18 blocks.  I opted to make 32 as we wanted a large, bed-sized quilt.  The bright, fun colors of the fabric from Moda's Chance of Flowers line really make this quilt.  


I'm so glad to have this giant finished!!  On to my next challenge!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.

Great Deals on Massdrop

Have y'all heard of Massdrop?  I've fallen totally in love with this site.  They figure out what people want to buy, go to the manufacturer or said product, then work out a good price which they pass on to all of us.  So far, I got a great deal on Aurifil thread and Superior Threads Titanium Needles.  I went looking today and they have more awesome deals and I thought I'd pass them along to all of you.

First, they have another awesome price on Aurifil Thread Collections in neutrals, both by Pat Sloan and by Mark Lipinski.

It is starting at $85.99 for 12 spools but if 50 or more people agree to buy it, the price will drop to $79.99!!  Isn't that amazing???

Another favorite of mine right now is a drop on Cotton + Steel fat quarter towers.
