Design Wall Monday




Happy Monday! I enjoyed a fun-filled visit from my sister and her family from Michigan this weekend, so didn't have a lot of time for sewing. At some points there were 10 children in the house...lots of noise and activity!
I insisted on doing some sewing on Sunday afternoon, and I wish I would have taken a photo, because I had my 11 year old niece and 8 year old nephew handing me strips to sew the blocks in the photo on the right. They did a great job of matching a light and a dark and seemed to enjoy the task.   I also had my sister and her bestfriend drinking tea and visiting with me, so there were 5 of us in the sewing room!

I was hoping to be able to keep up with Bonnie's mystery from Quiltville, but didn't meet that goal. At this point, part one is almost completed and I have made 2 blocks for part 2. And that is all that is on my design wall today...I had hoped to have 104 of them, but 2 is a good start!

  3. I LOVE your color choices for this. I haven't started yet! I have too many other things ahead of it right now but I've got most of my fabric together. ;-) I have to buy my gold which will be a light chocolate brown.

  4. Cool greens! I had to sew some yesterday too after a busy week. ;-) How fun to have some 'help' in matching! LOL

  5. I have the two steps printed out. Gotta finish up some other things before I can start 'Carolina Christmas'. Two is a great start!

  6. That's two more blocks completed than I have. I have my parts for the pieced-triangle half of the blocks ready to be stitched together. Not sure when they will actually get stitched.

  7. No one can keep up with Bonnie. I am one of those people who save and/or print out the directions and then work on things at my own pace. Besides, I am not good at following directions, I like to see what she plans and then take off on my own. I do like your color choices: I have never done a green quilt.

  8. I can't wait to see those greens all done up in this quilt! Sounds like a fun week-end at your house. Glad you were able to start the second step.

  9. I look forward to watching your progress. AT the moment I'm doing nothing more than printing out he instructions.
