Monday Morning Design Wall 10/19/2015

 Good Morning, it has been quite a while since I posted due to being very busy these past few months.  I graduated two children, college and high school, sent one off for his year abroad in Asia and the youngest left for his freshman year of college.   As a new empty nester, I took on a more challenging job and have been working quite a bit.  I have completed many of my blocks for the P3Designs BOM for 2015.   I am almost caught up on these, having just downloaded and in the process of preparing the October blocks.  I am hoping to have my design wall cleaned up and ready to put all the blocks out on the wall by the end of the month. 

I did cut all the side triangles and extra pieces for my Sycamore Hill's BOM from 2014.  Still working on the layout as I don't want it to be too matchy-matchy but there are two of every block so I need to mix it up.  Check out Judy's website for other great design walls.

Monday Morning Design Wall 5/4/2015

Good Morning!  I finally started the 2015 Block of the Month for P3Designs.  I finished the first two months, blocks 1-10 and am working on 11-25 over the next few weeks.  The blocks are very small and easy so they go together pretty quickly.  The catch is that you make one block with the basket and a second flower for each block to be used later.  Remember to check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the design walls.

Monday Morning Design Wall 4/6/2015

Good Morning!  I had a very productive weekend.  I made myself a very quiltey garment bag complete with inside pocket!!  It turned out very nice and I just love it.  I made one for my daughter for her birthday also!

I also worked on my Linen Lady project and am binding the unfinished edge of my cut work lace.  I quilted the back ground fabric and once I finish the binding for the inside I will bind the outside!

I also worked on my embroidery for my applique project! Just a few more blocks and I get to sew them all together.  Remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls.

Monday Morning Design Wall 3/16/2015


 Good Morning!  I am working on settings for my applique quilt.  I finally finished the last two blocks in this pattern.  There are 16 blocks but I did each twice but shrunk them by 50% so the are smaller.  So now I need a setting that uses 32 blocks.  A work in progress!  Any suggestions are welcome.  Remember to check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the blocks.

Monday Morning Design Wall 3/9/2015

Good Morning!   I have been on a Paper Piecing binge lately and after finishing my 120 Wild and Goosey blocks I started a few 3.5 inch pineapple blocks.  Just for fun!  They took the entire weekend to make the first 14 but they were fun.  I am thinking about making a few more.  Please remember to check on Judy's wall to see the rest of the design walls!

Monday Morning Design Wall 3/2/2015 Wild and Goosey Weekend

Good Morning!  I have had a blast all weekend making my Wild and Goosey Blocks from Bonnie Hunter.  I love using up my scraps and they have turned out so well.  I am not normally a paper piecing person but this was the perfect week/weekend and I finished my first 100.  I might make 40 more but I think that will be enough!!

Monday Morning Design Wall 2/23/2015

Good Morning!!  Spent the weekend adding my detail to a block of  Forever Blooming.  I love the french knots!!  Hoping to get to the rest of the blocks done while I work on preparing the border applique pieces.   I also had time to get to a few Wild and Goosey blocks, from the Quiltmaker magazine, April 2013 I think.   These are 3.5 inch paper paper pieced blocks.  Trying to get through my scrap basket!!   Remember to check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the design walls!
