Design Wall Monday

 Here’s what is on the design wall this Monday – on the left, the next Quilt from the Crate I plan to layer and quilt and on the right, the stained glass runner I need to applique the cirlces on yet.


Kats completed


Number 3 from the Quilts from the Crate completed.  Got the binding sewn down last night.  I just did an overall meander with bright variegated thread.  This one is made up of batik Kats left from a block swap, The batik bricks and triangles are left over from two other proejcts.

Three down – a bunch more to go. 🙂

I was going to quilt the tops in the order piled in the crate but will be digging through the pile today to find one to fit the leftover pieces of batting I still have on hand.  Need to go lay in a new supply of batting soon.

I’m headed out for a late lunch with a friend so may coerce her into stopping at the fabric store for more batting.  I’d like to get another one layered so I have it ready to start quilting on this week in the evenings — anything to avoid finishing my cleaning around here but then it’s a holiday so should be doing fun things instead of cleaning — at least that’s what I’m telling myself! 🙂


Happy 4th of July!


A safe holiday to you all.  And to those in the service and in harms way, a prayer for safety for you all and your families and for those who have sacrificed to protect our freedom.

I’ve been busy working on some designs in EQ and just realized it IS actully the 4th now (after 1 a.m.) and in the neighborhood here was some early celebration going on a few hours ago as I could hear fireworks being shot off.

And what was I working on – not this one,  This is one I drew a while ago but haven’t done anything with yet but I like the way it sort of resembles the flag.

I was busy working on the July Granny’s Hankie block and also the July Year of Wallhanging project which have taken several hours to finalize and load. 

I made a few changes to the July Year of Wallhanging from the blog post yesterday – I like this one much better.

I call it “Fudgsicle Please!” – my favorite ice cream treat.  I added in another tasty treat compared to the prior image and rearranged the salt water taffy border.  I’m going to be busy and on vacation for a while in July so both this design and the new Granny’s Hankie block have already been loaded to (with a minimum of swearing) and are now available for download.  The June designs are still up and will be removed the end of the month, and the July designs will remain up until the August ones are loaded.

Now to go put my feet up and knit for a while before I finally head off to bed.
