Design Wall Monday?

Yep...it's design wall Monday again!

Truthfully, nothing is on my design wall today.

I have been consumed with Christmas activities and travels, which I will tell more about later this week. But last week there were lots of gingerbread people on my design wall.




I first saw the gingerbread block on Jeanne's blog Luv 2 Stitch  when she made a pile of potholders while at a quilting retreat. They were so cute, I just had to try making them.  I made a 6 1/2" potholder size and then made some smaller 2 3/4" blocks, put them on point, and made a little mini quilt.

These blocks were so much fun to sew, I decided that December's theme of my monthly mini club would be gingerbread.

When the quilters came over, there was lots of gingerbread fun to be had! Susan brought some candy wrapped in gingerbread cellophane and a gingerbread towel. Bernie brought adorable gingerbread cookies for us to snack on while we sewed.
And here is the design wall...the larger blocks at the top,  some mini blocks in the middle, and on the bottom left of the design board you can see one gingerbread mascot sent to the class by Barb's nephew! I hope some of these gingerbread blocks were finished in time to be under some Christmas trees.

You can check out some other design walls at Judy's blog - click here.
If I get any sewing time this week, I be sewing step #5 of Bonnie's mystery and I will get to see how the blocks will look...can't wait! Come by later this week to see what new quilting store I visited over the holidays!
