DWM - last one for June

Really is this the last design wall for June?  Where did June go, can we get it back just for a little while.  Not much sewing this weekend, went to IN to the Shipshewana Quilt Show.  I got a couple more urban nine patch blocks done.


And a little car sewing, it's a 4 hour ride to my daughters one way.  So that was a nice chunk of time for some sewing in the car.  I was able to get one diamond complete there, and one on the way back. I think I just might be getting a little faster.

I'm one diamond short of making a star.  Hmmm well I have a few threads on the design wall don't I???  Oh, that's because it's well loved and used :)

And here is what I've been so anxious to dive into.  The one reason I went was to experience the Bliss Rail system for my Millennium.  I have to say I was a bit disappointed and really couldn't tell the difference between what I have not and the Bliss Rails. I was all set to order them, but nope, what I have is good.  The guy said if you have your table set up well, that it's not that much of a difference.  I"m not touching my table cuz they must have set that baby up perfectly.  So instead I shopped for fabric.  See all those bags, filled with  yummy wonderful fabrics :)

  1. Great blocks! The hexies are a slow go - think that's what turns me away. Look at all those bags- oooohhh.

  3. Yor blocks are so bright and cheerful. I'm with you on Bliss. I've never been able to tell the difference so I haven't invested in it either.

  5. I love the urban 9 patches and the hexies.
    I always feel so strong when I resist the new latest and greatest and use what I have. And of course being able to shop for a bit of fabric helps with the resisting.

  6. Your Urban 9 patch blocks remind me of Double wedding ring. Think my sister would notice if I made her a quilt from them instead of DWR? Thanks for stopping by my Blog this Monday. The year is half gone and my UFO's are not getting done very fast. I have a Bernina Table with a Mega Quilter on it now so maybe I'll get more of the To Be Quilted pile finished. Also curious about what's in your bags!!!

  9. I am so bitten by that Urban 9 patch, I need to get the ruler thingy. I really want to go to Shipshewana, tell me all about it!! I have never been there. It is about 8 hours driving from me and I am not sure if it is "worth" the trip.... :)

  17. Your hexies look great! I am working on filling a box of them and making myself a quilt, too. They are slow, but satisfying because they look so good.

  19. Love both the projects you've got going, but the hand-stitched hexies would probably kill me! And yay for more fabric!

  20. I'm with Tamara... do we get to see the goodies in the bags??? I might need to go fabric shopping if you share what you got. NOT... I'm way over on fabric purchased this year. You are doing a great job on your blocks. Keep at it.

  21. You have a lovely blog. Your hexagons are pretty too. I have been obsessed with hexies for about 11 years now. Happy stitching. May I ask what DWM is?
