This is my design wall this morning. And when I saw it in the picture, it really looks like a mess. But when I was putting it on the wall, I thought I was coming up with something. The 12” blocks are from the LCQAL that finished up earlier this year using Bliss by Moda. My thought was to use some charm squares to make up a divided 4 patch but, oh, I don’t like it at all. So later this morning I will be taking the charm squares down and trying to come up with something else.
The first thing I took down from the DW Sunday morning was the 16 patch quilt top. It is ready for quilting and the backing has also been readied.
I went through all my batting pieces and chose the ones I could put together for this quilt. Here are the leftovers, ready to go back on the shelf to await their call to duty.
I even prepared the binding and it is also waiting it’s turn to be used…….sometime in the near future, I hope.
Then I started working on my Snowbound UFO. I trimmed all of the blocks while I began sewing them together. Look at all the slivers of fabric on my cutting table. I keep thinking there is something I should be able to do with them but I probably will just toss them. As you will soon see, I already have enough mess in this studio.
I sewed the blocks together and once again enjoyed seeing these clever blocks from Bunny Hill Designs.
So now the center is all together and pressed. And on the chair back are the inner borders (don’t look too closely at the mess behind the chair). I still need to add cornerstones and then we will be ready for the outer borders. I am thinking of white cornerstones on them with maybe embroidered snowflakes. But that also will be decided either today or tomorrow, or whenever I get around to it.
Here in South Alabama we have been getting rain. No, I mean RAIN. We have had about 7.5” in the last 4 days.
This is how my shoes have looked every time I go out. But I don’t mind, we really needed all that rain. Besides, these are Crocs and I just rinse them off and keep going.
Now, clean off your shoes and run on over to Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on.
