Monday Morning Design Wall 5/28/2012

Finally finished block 2 of P3 Designs block of the month, took a lot of courage just to start the block as it looks so difficult, so when I finally did, I was surprised how well it turned out.  Check out her web page for the BOM.       I am working on block 3 and have block 4 pending so I need to catch up on this project.   God bless our service men and women this Memorial Day!!
I was also able to finish up two blocks on my latest applique quilt. They are lacking some embroidery but I will wait until I have a few more done before I add the embroidery, just to make sure I use colors that go well with all of the blocks.    Don't forget to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls!!

 Yeah!  I had time to sew down my Dresden plate blocks for Ms. Kyra and I am getting ready to place all the applique leaves and flowers.  I have already made all the leaves, 64 dark leaves, 64 medium leaves and 32 light leaves.......I worked on leaves for a couple of weeks before I even made the Dresden plates!!  I am working on my other applique project, well a few other applique projects but have not had too much time this week to get much done.  I took a day off work and attended Sit and Sew at my local quilt shop, then a went to my quilt meeting with the Spring Chicks and we stayed far to long talking about everything and not showing our Art Quilt project Serendipity or trading our row exchange!

Above is my version of Serendipity!  The fabric happened to be where it had to be for me to do the project!!  Don't forget to check out Judy's blog and see everyone's design wall.

YES, two Best of Division winners at Dixon MayFair this weekend!  The pink flower quilt won Best of Division for hand quilting and the Cal Quilt won Best of Division for applique and came in second place for Best in Show!   I am also working on my corner blocks for my Hawaiian Quilt with a twist!  These are quite a challenge and I am on number 2 of 4!  Going to be a LONG MONTH!!  Remember to check out Judy's blog to see the rest of the design walls.

Monday Morning Design Wall 5/7/2012

 So many projects and so little time although I have made great progress.  I finally finished block #20 of My Whimsical Quilt Garden and I put all the blocks together.  I am still working on the border idea, I would love to do some more applique on it but I need some design time to figure it out. 

I also started my next project, by making all the "frames" for the applique blocks.  I also was able to start the first two blocks and they should go pretty fast as they consist of some rather large pieces!!  

I am just itching to get everything done and I think I might take some time off work to do it!  Yippee, a guilt free day or two would be very nice.  Remember to check out Judy's blog for the other design walls!!
