Design Wall Monday - July 24, 2017

I am on a much needed vacation this week, so my design wall has not changed:



We are on a trip to Mackinac Island and Michigan's Upper Peninsula and will be back home next week.  I hope you have a more productive sewing week that I am having.  I am looking forward to seeing what you are posting when I get back. What's on your Design Wall this Monday?

Design Wall Monday - July 17, 2017

Today's not a design wall, but a pile of little quilts that I am putting labels on.  I am not so good at completing that finishing touch of documenting my quilts.  I'm wanting to improve that so I'm spending my sewing time today making labels for several little quilts.





Also, if they don't have a hanging sleeve, or hanging triangles, on the back, I'm sorting those into a pile to add that also.  It's a day to work on the little finishing details.  What about you, What are you working on today?

Design Wall Monday - July 10, 2017

How to reward myself for doing a good deed?  Start a new doll quilt, of course.  I'm working on a snowball and nine patch doll quilt from a July challenge by a blogger friend at Huckleberry Stitches  (Here) .  It is going well, and a nice break from the Valentine quilt.




What was the good deed?  An adult child came to visit and brought  a "mending" task.  Her dog had chewed up the back of three pillows, and would I please fix the pillows.  I recited the adage "asking a quilter to do mending is like asking Picasso to paint your garage" but all the kids laughed because they know I will do anything for them.   AND, they laughed at the thought of me being compared to Picasso.  Humph!  So two quilting days were spent fixing the pillows.....I do love my kids and my grand dogs dearly.  Also, I did do a bang-up job on the repairs.







Work on the Valentine quilt while on vacation at the cabin has been a challenge.  The pieces for the next 10 x 10 block were laid out on a beach towel in preparation to sew, only to have to roll up the towel and store it away when more family came to visit.  Now the family has all gone back home, and the block is laid out again, ready to sew.  What's on your design wall?

Design Wall Monday - July 3, 2017

Happy 4th of July to those in the United States!  Here's my favorite patriotic doll quilt.



It's 13 inches by 17 inches and each flag is made of three pieces of fabric, 2 striped pieces and one starred piece.  I made it from old fabrics from my Mom's stash, which is why I like it so much.  The flags are 3 in. by 5 in.

I'm on vacation and away from home, so no pictures from my design wall.
