Monday Morning Design Wall 2/18/2013

 I did the smart thing this weekend and took out a UFO to finish before I start a new project!  I was caught up in starting another quilt when I realized that I would be better off finishing one up first!!  I know, not natural, but so necessary as I can no longer find the bed in the spare room due to all the UFO's stacked up on it.  I spent the weekend traveling 5 hours north to Humboldt State in Arcata California so my son could take a look at the campus.  Yep, 5 hours up and 5 hours back almost to the Oregon border.  I took my Hawaiian quilt with and finished an entire corner with hand quilting during the long car ride. I love the texture that the little squares bring out in the background.  I have had no time this past week for machine quilting as I have been working late and then trying to catch up on everything at home but this next week, watch out!!  I am ready to go and hopefully finish up a quilt at some point!  Tomorrow is a day off of work for President's Day and I am so looking forward to getting some stuff done!  Sewing machine, here I come! 
Remember to check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the design walls.


  1. Your UFO is gorgeous and so is your quilting - perfect for that Hawaiian quilt.

  2. Your design wall blocks are fantastic! How did your son like Arcata? I was born there 65 years ago believe it or not. If you think it's small now imagine then! Yikes! My mom got out of town ASAP.

    1. Small is an understatement, Eureka looked like a big city! Great bead shop in Eureka and we ate at the Lost Coast Brewery, wonderful food!! Other than touring the campus, we did not spend too much time in Arcata! Personally, I moved to San Francisco when I was in my 20's but now, would love to live up there! Quite, safe and beautiful! Just needs a bit more sun for me.

  3. I love what is on your wall. I don't think I have ever seen them before.

  4. Gorgeous, Jennifer! I wish I had the restraint to stop starting new things when I have my own tall pile of UFOs in my sewing room. Also, tell your son that Humbolt only has 20 sunny days per year!

    1. It was beautiful but foggy and cold! They just built very nice apartment style dorms and it was a cute campus but I am hoping for Chico! Closer and warmer!
