Monday Morning Design Wall 10/24/2011

I was very busy this week and was able to get a day off of work to catch up on house cleaning (quilt projects), cooking (applique projects), and spending time with the kids (quilting while talking with the kids).  I have officially trained the 14 year old to clean the floors, the 16 year old to clean the bathrooms and now if I could only get the dog to mow the lawn!!  Hope lives!!!   I finished two applique squares for my Baltimore Album quilt and one for my Hawaiian Quilt.  They have turned out so nice I am thrilled.  I was able to give myself a bit of a refresher in needlework for the chain stitch but I think both the Baltimore album squares turned out so nice. 

Love the Hawaiian block and am so looking forward to making more blocks for that quilt.  I purchased the fabric when I was in the Bahamas on one of those One In A Lifetime Family Vacations a few years back and the fabric seems to fit the Hawaiian style of quilts.  Check out the rest of the design walls at  http://www.patchworktimes.com/

  2. You got 3 applique blocks done and all the house stuff? Oh yes, and work full time?? You put me to shame but thanks for sharing your beautiful blocks. Maybe I should pull out my 3 year old applique and finish those blocks!
