Wow, A Design Wall and a Finish

I'm in the midst of finishing two baby quilts for twins, so won't get to post much this week.  Here's my Stash Report, DWM, WOW, Applique Tuesday, NewFO, and Lovely year of Finishes in one.

Stash Report - I was BAD.  I saw this wonderful fabric last Tuesday and ordered it before I even took a breath. And worse - I have no idea what I'll do with it (well actually I do and it will be my NewFO this month - a wall hanging designed using Judy Hopkins' method). I just wanted it - materialism at it worst.  I bought 2 yards from Fabricdepot.com  - it was on sale:
 
I also used 2 yards for the backs of those twins' quilts so my numbers stay the same.
 
 
On my design wall is my Love Entwined (LE) - My WoW and Applique Tuesday for this week:
 

The colors in the photo are way off - I need to read my manual again.  Those leaves are really a soft moss green (medium value) not black!  And the blue in the compass is not blue, but a nice teal. My compass is now appliqued to the background and I'm working on those leaves you see - seven more to go.  I've decided now that I've finished that compass, the rest of the elements will be machine appliqued - I just don't have the luxury of time to do it by hand. Some parts will still be by hand - like the tiny stems that come next - but for the most part it will be by machine.  LOL - then again there are so many tiny parts - it may be more by hand than I think.

My Lovely Finish for July is a cute I Spy House that Sophie picked for Block Lotto.  I'm so glad I include an easy finish each month! 

Even if I don't win the blocks, think these houses would make a great calendar quilt. Thanks, Sophie!
Have a great week!  I hope to post again for Hexie Friday to take a break from all the mad quilting. Linky parties are underlined.

Here's the Linky for Applique Tuesday - would love to see any and all eye candy - doesn't have to be applique - but if it is all the better for us.

WOW, you were to busy and productive! My works in progress are posted on my blog. I still haven't started Love Entwined but am collecting it. I'm waiting for her other BOM to start and hope to do that one. I am certainly impressed with everything you got done!
