Design Wall Monday - August 14, 2017

This week has gone super fast.  And I didn't get much quilting done.  But I did finish the top of the "bazillion hst's doll quilt", as someone named it.

Here is the top:








I've picked blueberries several times lately, and learned something new this year, that they keep best unrefrigerated, in an open container on the countertop.  I also found it is very handy for popping a few in my mouth every time I go past the counter. Yummy.

Here's a picture of my latest picking:



I hope you have some lovely pictures to show the rest of us. I love Design Wall Mondays.  Let's see what you've been working on.

Design Wall Monday - August 7, 2017

August has started with such great weather that I haven't been sewing very much.  I have been outside enjoying the weather.  I even went golfing with my hubby, and enjoyed the beautiful golf course.  

Yesterday I got out this doll quilt project that is partially finished and sewed some more on it.  Here is my progress so far:




I have another four rows ready to sew together.  I'm at the cabin, so my design wall today is the kitchen table.  Whatever works, right?




What's on your Design Wall this Monday?

Design Wall Monday - July 31, 2017

It's the last day of July, and I am away from home most of the week.  I have redwork in the car, to work on while I travel.  The project is an 8 block x 8 block square quilt of redwork squares, with a flower/leaves border on all sides.  I'm at about 55 of the 64 blocks needed, and am working on the borders.  Here's a picture of the four borders in their present state on my design wall:




Here's a closeup, as the picture above is too far away:









A  rough calculation is that I need at least 10 flowers on each of the four 
borders, and progress is as follows:

Border #1   10 flowers
Border #2     8 flowers
Border #3     5 flowers
Border #4     2 flowers

One way to look at it is, I'm at 25 flowers, and only 15 to go.  I'm working on getting 2 more flowers on the second border, and then two borders will be at goal.  Later I will figure out how to make the design pleasing in the corners where the side designs meet.  As Miss Scarlett said, "I'll think about that tomorrow."

What are you working on this week?  I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.  Please reference back to this blog post somewhere in your blog post, so people can go quickly back and forth between all the design walls.  Thanks!
