This is my Design Wall today. Looks a lot like my last two design walls, doesn’t it? However, now each of the rows are sewn. The center will be 60x84. I think I know what I am going to do for an outer border but I think I need an inner border first so that may take some time to figure out.
This was when I was just getting started putting the rows together but I wanted to be able to show the true colors.
And over the weekend I drew all the pieces for several applique BOMs (I really went overboard this year). I plan on this being an applique week to see if I can get caught up on all of them.
Unfortunately we went antiquing again. This was my prize, a cast iron cradle. When I got it I was thinking of using it to store fabric. But once it was set up in the family room, I could see a quilt an a baby doll in there. We’ll see what finally it gets used for.
Of course Ms. Murphy had to check it out but interestingly, she hasn’t jumped into it, yet.
And then all the investigating had her all tuckered out.
It seemed to even tire Abby, who never paid any attention to the cradle.
Well, I better get off this computer, put a load of laundry in the washer, and get into the studio and get that applique stuff going. Be sure you check out all the creativity at Patchwork Times.
