19 weeks of Design Wall Monday. I think when I have a minute, I'm going to go back and see if I've made any progress.
This week's wall has my Freeze Frame, Quilt For An Hour from The Fabulous Judy L of Patchwork Times. (Instructions can be found on Judy L's website.) Today is Hour 11 that adds the next border. (edited to add that I finally read the directions and I'll be adding 2 borders today--easy peezy) I am really loving the borders. I'm glad today is a simple day, I have fabric for a new bathrobe and I want to cut that out sometime today.
Beside Freeze Frame is my newest leader/ender project ala Bonnie at Quiltville. My second photo is my little flannel design wall that sits behind my machine. I started using 2 1/2" squares, sewing them together, turn them into 4 patches and 9 patches.
Then I started cruising blogland. That is how I found Pam's Quilting and Stuff by Knitoid, I started reading, going to older posts, reading, more older posts until I found this post of her fabulous Quilting Studio Tour. After wiping the drool from my face, I continued on until I found this post with a UFO that was screaming at me to make it. It will work perfect with my 4 and 9 patches that I've been making with no purpose. So I emailed Pam, asked if she minded if I copy her and she doesn't care, told me the name of the blocks and I went to work, I had to make a few blocks--just to be sure.
I feel lucky to have "met" so many wonderful friends via the internet. I always think of how much my Gramma Maple would have loved the internet. I can see her cruising blogland and making sweet comments to all of her new friends. So why don't you cruise on over to Patchwork Times and see a sneak peek at the next Quilt For An Hour and see what my friends are working on.
