Ah, another week and I am almost done with this applique quilt top. Only a few left to do and I am already working on the framing for each block. As you can see below, I have actually included a picture of the actual design wall as I am working on block placement. I did not get as much done as I hoped because the camping trip for my son and his German exchange student was cancelled due to rain. Rain? Really? I tried to talk them into going...."What is a little rain when you can camp?" Needless to say, they did not go for it. The weather did clear up in time for the Group Trip to Muir Woods in Marin, California and then a trip after to Muir Beach for lunch and some fun in the sun. The German kids really enjoyed the Pacific ocean with a couple of them attempting swimming!
I tried to explain to the kids that the surfers were wearing wet suites for a reason but they still went in the water. They did have fun and learned to throw an American football!
I just realized that the eyes are missing from my bird!
I will need to get those done as soon as possible so I don't forget to finish off the bird. I really like the block borders, not too scrappy as I am keeping to four colors with the pink inside each block.
Don't forget to check out all the rest of the amazing design walls on Judy's blog.
