Design wall Monday
What’s on the design wall — well the big “M” quilt for my nephew is still up there but now that the table is cleared off there’s hopes of getting it layered to start quilting on soon. But here’s what’s been added just yesterday. They are snow globe blocks from a swap I hosted and here’s the ones I got from the other swappers. Some are wintery scenes and others are various landscapes but they all look so cute as snow globes.
There’s a few more of my own I want to make to add with them since some of the ones I was going to k eep of my own met with that horrible slashing incident the other night. 🙂
Don’t forget if you are making Crop Cricles, the February block comes down next Saturday … going going gone.
Here’s Janet P’s February blocks and if I know her (and I do) she’s chomping at the bit for the next month’s blocks. 🙂
And what was waiting for me when I got home – the last of the yarn purchases.
Yes, no more yarn shopping even tho I’ve got free yarn to claim at one of the shops since I’m such a good shopper. But what fun is it to claim the free stuff and not buy just a little more – I shall wait (yes Judy I said wait) 🙂 My goal is to wait until July and I’ll claim it as my birthday gift to me (and buy just a few others I must have). LOL
The two little groups of four hanks are for a particular pattern where you switch between the four in a group so that the color gradually changes across the sock. It will be interesting to try those out ( and wind those little buggers into cute little balls).
Lastly, in honor of National Quilting Day coming up this month, don’t forget it will be another Justquiltin Weekend. Info and yardage estimates can be found here.
Thanks for posting the photo. I am ready for the next month’s block, how did you know? hehe I am looking forward to Stacked Spools. I don’t know if I will be able to do it right away, but plan on trying.
