Design Wall Monday, November 15, 2010

First, our quilt show went great!! The quilts were beautiful, the visitors were complimentary, the ladies of the guild worked like a well-oiled machine and the husbands, both for set-up and take down, were wonderful. If you missed our quilt show you can see pictures of most of the quilts here.


After three days away from the studio, I could hardly wait to get in there and, except for small breaks for food, I spent all day there. I finished all of the gifts for the bottom of my 12 Days of Christmas and have them “stuck” together. They are not really fused yet but they are holding on to each other. I also got the diamonds sewn together (no picture) so the top of the tree is done. Tomorrow I will get the background together and maybe even the rest pressed onto it. I have a lot of machine applique to do on this so I may still be working on this when we meet again next Monday. In the meantime, be sure to visit Judy’s blog to see what other’s are doing.

The bows on your gifts are really cute. My favorite block has to be the Christmas Ornament with the multi color fabrics. Your project is coming along nicely. Look forward to next Monday to see how far you got! Aren't DWMs fun...
