I have a huge collection of ties, with several having quilt patterns deep within, just waiting to come out. I will be stocking up on baby quilt tops using Tie Inspired Patterns -- all of which I will share as they develop. Just a note, I also collect paper towel sheets, pictures of buildings (architectual designs) and sketches from visits to grave yards!
Next is the Spicy Snowballs.... then staying with the spicy theme, the back below is pieced from left overs and a few hot-peppers!
For more design wall projects, we can all hop over to Judy site at Patchwork Times. Judy has a wall full of nine patches, which I am sure will be something special.

For more projects, visit Amy Lou Who and be sure to check out her Mom's table topper - ADORABLE!
Over the next few weeks, I will be featuring projects inspired by men's ties. Some inspiration will be from the tie's fabric pattern...some will be using the tie itself. I love ties and hope you will be just as inspired.
Have a Great Friday!

I have all the borders on the Survivor Idol Blocks. When I take a break from quilting the tops on the current assembly line, I will start putting these together. The top is not very big at this point...about 54" x 54".

Played around with the Survivor Game Blocks. Not sure how big it will be when I am finished. I have not touched the snowball rows from last week, because I have been busy with the Plaid and Red/White Quilts.

The backings for the two Red/White quilts are in the dryer, so I will be sandwiching them later today.
My stash report was not very productive, because I only report the stash "out" when the project is finished.

Our quilt guild, The Cane Cutters, meet on the first friday of each month to sit and sew -- this week several dedicated their time to make pillowcases for the Challenge. This is my busy season at work therefore I could not attend, however I donated the pillowcase kits I had. The pillowcases are delivered to our LQS, "The Quilting Niche".For more stash reports, visit Judy at Patchwork Times.

One favorite area....the cutting table. I love collecting the shoe box drawers from the dollar store. They are perfect for holding up shelving, storing pre-cut strips, gadgets, fabric and family photos. My collection of fat quarters are in the basket drawers underneath. One day, I will empty the room and pull the wall paper down....but not today.
