Design Wall Monday & a Finish

003

First, the finish. Here is the baby quilt I almost had done a couple of weeks ago. However I decided to wait until the baby was born to make the label.

Madison was born last Wednesday and today I finally got the label embroidered and the binding sewn down. DH will take it to the father at work tomorrow.

So today I decided to work on the Henrietta Whiskers BOM. The applique is to be put on pieced blocks and we are instructed to make the blocks first and then do the applique as it comes. So here I am starting on the first part of the blocks, 16 square in a square blocks. They are only the border to some of the larger blocks…I have a long way to go.

And to take a break from all the above, I started appliqueing down the boot block. I use monofilament thread and a small zigzag stitch. So as you can see I have nothing on the design wall but lots going on. Stay tuned………..

Check out what others are working on over at Patchwork Times.

  2. Of course you don't have anything on the design wall -- you're busy working on it! (hum, I may need that excuse some day soon....!)

    I need to read the directions on Henrietta more carefully. I am hoping to make it too but considering I haven't finished 2009's A Tisket A Tasket... I don't think I'll be starting for a while...
