Monday Morning Design Wall 11/26/2012 INSANITY

Yes, insanity!!  I am officially insane.  I received a package in the mail on Wednesday, an applique pattern.  I was so excited, I sat right down and began to read the pattern, thinking about what fabric I would use.....SERIOUSLY?  I have umteen projects in progress that I have not finished and I am planning on starting another one???  I am insane.  By the way, the pattern was Karen Kay Buckley's Fiesta Mexico (drool).  I spent the entire weekend working on my UFO's and made huge progress.  I finished P3Design's BOM!  I finished all but three blocks on my mini-Baltimore album quilt, I am ready to finish the 4th border for my red and green Baltimore Album and I am currently assessing what I am going to do with Miss Kyra.  Add the single flowers or not...leaning toward not!  They look too small in the space. 

I almost forgot, I also put the white border on My Whimsical Quilt Garden quilt. Now I just have to prepare the applique border pieces.  I finished the blocks in April...took long enough to put the border on. Other than all that, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family.  All the kids were home and it was SO NICE to have everyone under one roof!!! I am so thankful that everyone is healthy, happy and safe, if only for the weekend.  My daughter headed back to school on Friday morning so she could cheer at the basketball game for school.The payoff for her will be a nice long Christmas holiday as she did her "required" holiday game already.  College kid #2 heads back today (Monday) so we enjoyed a very long weekend with him.    Remember to check out Judy's blog and see all the other design walls, my favorite part of Monday.

Monday Morning Design Wall 11/19/2012

Another great week and I finished up a few more blocks on my Baltimore Album quilt.  I also finished up the four block needed to sew together my P3 Design BOM.  I had a blast putting these blocks and cannot wait to work on the remaining borders for the P3Design quilt.  Short work week this week and I am hoping to get a lot of quilting and cooking done!!  Remember to check out Judy's blog and all the rest of the design walls!!

Monday Morning Design Wall 11/5/2012

The first of four blocks for the P3Design BOM from earlier this year.  Three more to do go and then I can work on the border.  It has been a slow week as I have been working on finishing up projects, handquilting my Hawaiian quilt and finishing up the borders for my Baltimore Album quilt.    Remember to check out the rest of the design walls on Judy's blog.
